During GRAPH EXPO, Kluge has partnered with Kurz Foil and H+M USA Dies and will be running foil stamping and embossing demonstrations on the Kluge EHG 22x30" (559x762mm) platen press. Kluge has designed a special “Chicago Blues” collectable poster that will be produced at the show. The poster will feature the Chicago sky line with a bluesy saxophone wrapped in. The tight foil placement and ample embossing designed into the piece will show off the quality, tight registration and ease of use customers can expect with the Kluge EHG.
Those stopping by the booth will see why Kluge is known throughout the world as the leader in its class in foil stamping, embossing and diecutting and will leave the booth with a “Chicago Blues” collectable poster to take home.
Kluge is pleased to announce that the EHG press being exhibited at GRAPH EXPO has been sold to United Craftsmen Inc. dba Craftsmen Printing of San Jose, CA. “During a time in the printing industry of having to do more with less, the newest generation of Kluge, the EHG, is the perfect complement to our other two Kluge 14x22" platen presses," says Dan Falkenstein, president of United Craftsmen. "Its sensible footprint coupled with its ability to serve a multitude of functions supporting both our offset and digital formats makes it a truly welcome addition. All of these features coupled with excellent, unprecedented sales, service and technical support received over the past several years made the Kluge EHG the obvious choice for us.”
Michael Aumann, CEO of Brandtjen & Kluge, also adds that the company is very pleased that Craftsmen Printing chose the Kluge EHG press as they continue to grow and expand their business. "We look forward to continuing our strong business relationship with their organization and are committed to helping them succeed with their new press.”
