Eagle Systems to Showcase Sheetfed Cold Foiling on Uncoated Stock at Print UV 2017
LAS VEGAS — March 14, 2017 — Eagle Systems, a U.S. based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, today announced that Eagle will be a Platinum Sponsor of this year's Print UV Conference, which is celebrating its 10th year. This year’s event will be conducted at the Encore by Wynn Resort in Las Vegas from Wednesday, March 29th to Friday, March 31st. Eagle has established a registration discount for attendees, who can register using their special code "TheFoilExperts2017" to receive $100 off the conference entrance fee.
At Print UV, Eagle will be showcasing cold foiling on uncoated stock, first exhibited successfully at last year’s drupa. The global stage marked the first time a viable, sellable cold foil solution, with 100% coverage capabilities, was made available to the marketplace.
“This is a real game changer for the commercial/packaging printing world because until now, it simply never worked,” states Eagle President and CEO Mike King. “Cold foil on uncoated stock has been tried and tested by many folks with little success. For many service providers of greeting cards, food packaging, pocket folders, and wine labels, as well as beer and soda carriers, this innovation alone will be well worth the trip to Las Vegas."
He continues, "Uncoated sheetfed cold foiling has never been successfully done before until now. Due to characteristics of uncoated stocks (being porous), previous iterations were never capable of 100% coverage. Now, with an Eagle Cold Foil system, sheetfed cold foiling on uncoated stock is now a reality and on display at our Print UV stand.”
