  • Boss Bloc Anti-Bacterial Laminating Film Helping WeLove2Print Tackle COVID-19

    5 August 2020

    In response to the reopening of much of the hospitality industry, Leicester based print agency and sister company, have taken the decision to add Vivid Laminating Technologies latest innovation, Boss Bloc Anti-Bacterial laminating film, to their extensive choice of print finishing applications.

    Due to the ongoing pandemic, their customers were looking for an alternative solution to wiping clean printed items or the considerable waste of throwing them away after every use. Boss Bloc proved to be the perfect solution to this problem, with its silver ion technology providing protection between usual cleaning. The fact the anti-bacterial effect does not leach out and is designed to last the lifetime of the product it’s added to provides peace of mind to businesses and consumers. Whilst maintaining the very highest standards of hygiene within restaurants, pubs, cafes and hotels.

    To date, have been able to use Boss Bloc to provide items such as menus, business cards, flyers and much more. They initially reached out to Vivid Laminating Technologies due to feedback from their customer base. Kunal Pabari, Operations Manager of Welove2print told us “it was vitally important for our customers to try and keep their experience as normal as possible. Thorough cleaning after every use wasn’t and option and neither was single use items as it became too expensive. So, we set out to find an alternative and Vivid provided us with exactly that”.

    It’s not just the WeLove2Print team who have been impressed with Boss Bloc. Commenting on feedback they’ve have received from their customer base, Kunal said; “Our clients have been very happy. There has been no impact on quality, Boss Bloc looks great and works exactly like a standard laminating film but with the huge added value and benefit of it being anti-bacterial and eliminating 99% of bacteria”.

    On their relationship with Vivid, Kunal, said “We have been really happy with the support we have had from Vivid as well as the Anti-Bacterial Lamination. The film a great selling tool and a win-win solution for both us and our customers.”

    Discussing the finer details of Boss Bloc, Richard Marlow, Sales Director at Vivid put forward, “It’s manufactured in Europe as well as tested and approved to ISO 22196 standards, meaning our customers can rest assured both them and their clients are protected. It’s a great option for printers and being able to present this as an option to their customers is a great way to differentiate their offering”.

    Martin Evans, Vivid’s Managing Director said, “it’s something we’ve been putting research and development into for a while. With an extended effort over the last few months. We’re aware that many of our customers serve sectors such as leisure, hospitality, health and education which will benefit greatly from an anti-bacterial laminating film.
