News Story

  • Did you receive a Vivid Christmas Card?

    29 January 2016

    This year we used the award-winning Matrix to laminate and foil our Christmas Cards & Gift Tags. 

    A big thank you to Hobs Deansgate for printing and finishing these.

    We’re really happy with the finished cards, so much so we wanted to let you all know how they were produced...

    Step 1: The background was printed on a HP Indigo. 

    Step 2: The card was then laminated on the Matrix Pneumatic with Boss Soft Touch laminate film.

    Step 3: Black toner was then overprinted with the HP Indigo.

    Step 4: This was then run through the Matrix once more, this time using Gold Foil. 

    Step 5: The card was trimmed down to size and creased.

    Step 6: Card posted to customers.

    Our new Boss Special Effect Films and Foils are available in Spot UV-style Gloss film and in Gold, Silver, Red, Copper, Blue & Red foil finishes.

    Take a look at our YouTube channel to see how you can foil and create Spot UV-style effects on the Matrix.
