Glenmore Custom Print & Packaging Used Cold Foil Technology to Make its Mark
A couple years ago, James Rowley, General Manager at Glenmore, discovered Eagle Systems (Booth 3002). What he saw was different, though he wasn’t sure it was the right fit for Glenmore. However, the difference stood out, and that stand out sentiment resonated with people both in operations and sales back at Glenmore. Rowley knew niche markets were driving growth in the print industry, and they had their eye on a different look they could offer to the carton converting market. A notion that has transformed the company from primarily being a commercial printer to being closer to a 50/50 provider of commercial print and packaging.
Eagle Systems gave Glenmore a competitive edge by allowing them to offer something different, high-end, and, from a production perspective, easy for their customers. “Our folding carton side of the business has grown as a result of having this equipment,” says Rowley. “We have to stand out in a different way, and provide a product that our competitors can’t produce. We’ve gotten a few nice pharmaceutical jobs because of it. It has definitely fueled growth for us. Adding the Eagle Cold Foil has resulted in a game changer for Glenmore.”
The key is the fool-proof process, and easy ability to change from normal four-color printing to cold foil embellishment. Along with true litho registration, all colors can be produced in one single pass through the press, along with multiple coatings and finishes on top of the foil.
“The local printing industry is extremely competitive, which is why we had to carve out our own niche to compete against some of our bigger competitors,” Rowley explains, “by offering unique products and services such as the Eagle Cold Foil and a higher level of quality of end product, as well as focusing on providing customers with a shorter turnaround.
