We've had 3 reasons to celebrate at Vivid recently.
Production Operative Chae Poli & Sales Administrator Stacey Hughes both turned 21.
The whole Vivid team contributed to their presents, which included an Armani belt and vouchers for Chae, and a Pandora Charm Bracelet for Stacey!
Our Warehouse Operative Dale also recently got married to fiancée Amy, with many of the Vivid team attended their wedding reception.
Congratulations to the Happy Couple!
Print finishing specialists Duplo held their 2nd Northern Lights event at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on 8th and 9th March.
Vivid, together with other key partners including Renz, Infigo Software and Antalis, exhibited the latest technologies and innovations at the print application event.
Our foiling and spot UV-style print effects were shown on the award-winning Matrix, with Vivid's Sales Director Richard Marlow running live demonstrations throughout the 2 days.
Sign & Digital UK
It was great to be back at Sign & Digital, it was again a huge success. We showcased both our award winning Matrix Duplex and our Easymount Air.
We demonstrated our new Auto-Feeder for the Matrix along with the foiling and spot-UV effects for the system.
It was great to support our existing dealers and meet with new end users too.
Vivid Laminating Technologies will introduce two new additions to it’s Matrix range at drupa, alongside a new wide format foiling laminator and a range of special effect foils.
The new Auto-Feeder can be fitted to the Matrix Laminating Systems and frees up operators to complete other jobs quickly and efficiently.
With the Auto-Feeder the Matrix gives customers an even greater return on their investment. Prints can be loaded 'on the run' for non-stop operation.
Aimed at the digital/commercial markets, short-to-mid run business cards, menus, book covers, bespoke prints and more can all be finished faster.
The award-winning Matrix Laminators will also see a new high-speed model added to the range, allowing larger volume runs to be laminated faster and saving on production costs by finishing in-house.
The new system runs at up to 20m/66ft a minute and will also be fully compatible with the new Auto-Feeder.
Boss Special Effect Foils, Metallized Print and Spot UV Film
Vivid’s NEW Boss Premium Foil range allows metallized effects to be added to prints. The foiling and overprintable coloured foils work by combining the Matrix and a digital printer.
Detailed, quality foiling prints can be created in-house, without expensive set-up charges and traditional block foiling, which represents a fraction of the cost compared to outsourcing.
Vivid is adding to their Boss print effect range, with holographic films. This opens many new avenues of income for Matrix users, including security print, vouchers, personalised items & tickets, as well as the packaging and label markets.
The Matrix is the most cost-effective digital laminator on the market and is a far more valuable must-have system for the modern day digital printer. With lamination, foiling, Spot UV and new metallized print effects, 4 separate avenues of income make the Matrix a real option to produce incredible finishes, adding even more value to print jobs.
The Easymount Air, recently awarded Top Product for 2016 by readers of Wide-Format & Signage magazine, will also see a new model launched at the Düsseldorf show. The Easymount AirFoil features independent pneumatic rollers, allowing it to foil and add spot UV-style effects to wide format prints, foam boards, glass and MDF.
Metallized effects open up new markets for wide format printers. These can be overprinted onto UV or solvent-based prints. Customers working in the point-of-sale, packaging and decorative markets will benefit by saving money every time they create a large format product.
