SG360º Adds DGM Cold Foil Enhancement Foildex System to Its Press Capabilities
WHEELING, IL—March 5, 2015—SG360º has announced the addition of a DGM Foildex system as part of its world-class line up of printing presses and technology. The DGM Foildex System is a cold foil print enhancement technology that provides a process of applying metallic foil, in-line, at press speed creating an infinite spectrum of colors on a printed sheet.
“We are very excited about the addition of cold foil technology to our press capabilities,” expressed Anthony Ferruzza, SG360º senior vice president and Gilman Facility general manager. “SG360º always strives to bring the most advanced technologies to our customers, allowing them to be as creative as possible with their direct mail design and production needs.”
The new technology uses offset in-line printing as an alternative to off-line hot foil stamping, allowing for a single-pass process and in-line register accuracy. Additional key advantages of the DGM Foildex system is that it requires no dies—only a litho plate, provides excellent lay down equal to the hot-foil process and does not effect regular print operations when applying—all important factors for delivering the highest quality foil project in a timely and efficient manner.
From a design standpoint, SG360º can now provide foil projects with halftone effects, fine line and small text, no limitation on foil coverage and an unlimited number of foil colors utilizing silver cold foil with overprint.
SG360º clients are some of the nation’s most well known luxury/clothing retailers, big box, food, electronic and home/hardware retailers. The company is involved in almost every industry—from finance to healthcare to automotive and other service industries, including some of the world’s largest advertising agencies.
