We've canvassed a handful of printers who stray a bit from the beaten path to get their take on the effectiveness of embellishments. One of the more comprehensive embellishers we came across is Worthington, MN-based Bedford Industries, which debuted in 1966 as a wire twist-tie manufacturer. The firm has blossomed in a number of different solutions for bundling, identification tags, converting technology, packaging reclosures and its trademark ElastiTag product line.
Innové Global Solutions' ScuffProof film has been added to the Scodix recommended laminate list. The film is ideal for use on soft- and hard-bound book covers, point-of-sale (POS) materials, business cards, or any other print or published project that will be frequently touched or handled.
RESTON, VA—It would have been hard for even the most tenacious of travelers to not be impacted by the significant challenges that the fire at the FAA facility in Aurora, IL, caused for people attending GRAPH EXPO 14 and co-located CPP EXPO last month. But despite 4,251 flight cancellations and over 12,000 significant delays at Chicago's two major airports during the show, attendees found a way to get to the show.
A fire at the FAA facility in Aurora, IL, imparted significant challenges to those flying into Chicago for GRAPH EXPO 14. But despite 4,251 flight cancellations and over 12,000 significant delays at Chicago's two major airports, orders and optimism were up from last year's show.
Scodix reported another successful show at GRAPH EXPO 14. The company sold one of its Scodix Ultra presses to EarthColor, a digital services provider in Moonachie, NJ. EarthColor serves companies in a variety of industries from telecommunications to real estate. Executive Vice President Cheryl Kahanec remarked, "With innovative printing capabilities like Scodix, we believe we can help our clients reach their goals through enhanced print collateral."
Presentation Folder (PFI) of Orange, CA, has purchased a Scodix Ultra press at GRAPH EXPO 14 in Chicago. The new press positions PFI to be on the forefront of new technology and emerging markets, said PFI President Joel Tardie.
A complete solution for PSPs requiring the ability to switch from one finishing application to another, the Ultra Pro from Scodix will debut at GRAPH EXPO 14. It is engineered with the speed and quality of the Scodix Ultra (up to 1,250 B2+ sheets/hr.) and is the first system to feature Scodix Spot, a polymer that produces a spot varnish for short runs.
