Vivid Laminating Technologies, Europe’s leading designer and manufacturer of laminating systems, has outgrown its former premises, St George’s House on Whitwick Road, but is keeping its business and its 35 employees in Leicestershire, at its new building in Ivanhoe Business Park, Ashby de la Zouch.
Martin Evans, Managing Director of Vivid Laminating Technologies, said; "St George’s House has been a great base for over 20 years, which has allowed our business to grow ten-fold. We will be sad to leave, but excited about our new home in Ashby which allows us to expand even more."
From Monday 18th December, our new address will be:
Vivid Laminating Technologies Ltd
Ivanhoe Business Park
Ashby de la Zouch
We will still be taking your orders until 2pm on Friday 15th for dispatch and able to deliver on Monday!
The multi-million-pound construction includes a state-of-the-art manufacturing centre, allowing us to build even more systems in the UK, including the newly launched Omni-Flow Deep Pile Feeder for the Matrix.
Our new headquarters will also include an incredible showroom, boasting a huge number of digital finishing systems, digital print engines, wide format print solutions and a training area to learn about our systems. We will also have an area dedicated to Color-Logic to help customers gain an insight into the software suite.
We've been taking photos of the progression of the building. Take a look at our blog here.
There will be more space for the entire Vivid staff, an advanced warehousing facility and even a great recreational room for the team and our guests. We look forward to seeing you in our new home soon!
Vivid Laminating Technologies have introduced its new Omni-Flow modular deep pile feeder for the award-winning Matrix Systems this October.
Vivid’s sales director Richard Marlow said, "The new Omni-Flow will laminate & foil up to 1000 SRA3 sheets unattended, saving both time and money. It’s a truly revolutionary product and can be set-up in seconds, at least 5 times quicker than traditional feeders."
The Omni-Flow is fully modular and easily retrofits to current Matrix Systems. Vivid has designed the feeder to run in-line with the Matrix, utilising custom Swiss Feed head technology. The new system will also feed long sheet stock of 1050mm plus in length.
"We've also launched our new Printable White Foil", continued Richard. "This is a brilliant solution for digital printers who want to print white, but don’t have the engine to print a 5th colour."
Vivid’s new Aqua Aura Printable White Foil adheres to coloured papers by first printing black toner to the sheet and then applying the foil using the Matrix. Colour images and text can then be overprinted directly onto the white foil, meaning that the coloured print will show on black and other dark substrates.
Vivid Laminating Technologies return to London’s Packaging Innovations & Luxury Packaging shows with its award-winning Matrix Systems and a place in the events Innovation Gallery for its partnership with Color-Logic.
David Smith, Vivid’s marketing communications manager said, "We’ve had an incredible reaction to the announcement of our new alliance with the Color-Logic team and the amazing foiled samples we’ve been creating.
"The simplicity of using the Matrix to digitally foil packaging and labels, combined with the power of the Color-Logic software palette of 250 foil colours, means that packaging designers and printers can offer their customers more bespoke products created on-demand & in-house."
In the run-up to every show, a small number of products and services are chosen by the show organisers to be featured in their Innovation Gallery. The Vivid and Color-Logic partnership & samples were picked amongst 33 other products to be highlighted on the show floor.
"This is only the third packaging show that Vivid has attended,” continued Smith. "To be chosen as one of the few products for the Innovation Gallery reflects on how good the quality of samples on show are. We’re really excited to be bringing our solutions for foiling, spot UV effects and lamination back to London."

Vivid will be on Stand H6 of London’s Olympia from 13th – 14th September. Click here to register to attend the shows for free.
