Having recently attended Print World Show in Toronto with Sydney Stone to demonstrate the Matrix & new Modular Feeding System, our Managing Director, Martin Evans, said “We are delighted to confirm our new partnership with Sydney Stone. The Matrix is a great system for single sided lamination and the response we received from the Print World Show attendees was superb, which confirms the demand for a system like the Matrix.
“We’re really excited to be partnering with the Sydney Stone team. They have a rich history within the Print Finishing Business and we are confident the Matrix will have the same success in Canada, that it has in Europe, where it is a market leader”.
Having taken orders at the show, Sydney Stone’s Sales Director, Michael Steele said “Not since 2004, have we sold this many units of a particular system directly from the show floor. The Matrix fills a definite need in the marketplace and its affordability and ease of use makes it easy for business owners to see how much it will add to their bottom line”.
Sydney Stone was established in 1951 and has since grown to become one of the premier distributors of Print Finishing Equipment and Supplies throughout North America and beyond.
Vivid are Europe's leading designers and manufacturers of laminating systems. We have over 20 years experience in the field of lamination making us market leaders, offering innovative designs and meeting market challenges.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest product, the Matrix MF-530 Auto-Feeder.
The feeder is the only modular unit designed specifically for the Matrix MX-530 Single Side Laminating System.
Having had an excellent response to the prototype shown at Drupa, production was launched to meet our many orders for the new feeder, as part of our ongoing commitment to our customers in producing innovative, time-saving products that offer value & functionality.
Our Technical Manager Gavin Ward explains “We have known for some time that there has been a market demand for a fully automatic feeder for our Matrix Systems.
With this in mind, we’ve produced the MF-530 feeder which has been designed to retrofit the existing multilingual MX-530 Laminators”.
“And with the Auto-Feeder installed, the operator is free to work on other print jobs” continued Gavin.
The feeder operates using compressed air and includes the suction pile feeder & control panel in one self-contained unit.
It will also run up to an impressive 5m per minute, which equates to 1000 SRA3 landscape sheets an hour, perfect for low to mid volume print finishing businesses.
“The feedback we are receiving from our customers proves that Vivid have answered their needs again” concluded Gavin.
We are Europe's leading designers and manufacturers of laminators. For many years, we have been leading the world of lamination with the most innovative designs in the marketplace by listening to our customer's requirements.
