Adding some festive sparkle: Eazyprint used GMP’s technology on our December cover
The cover of December’s issue of Digital Printer was both digitally printed and digitally finished, showcasing what is now possible with GMP’s “sleeking” technology, metallic and white foils, and spot gloss.
Printed by Kettering-based Eazyprint on a Konica Minolta sheet-fed digital press on Fedrigoni Symbol Freelife Satin 250gsm, the advent calendar-themed cover design was then turned into a tour-de-force for the finishing capabilities offered by GMP’s Q-topic laminator, using soft-touch lamination, silver foil, white foil and spot gloss. Around 100 copies also features holographic foiling on the magazine masthead – most easily seen on the “printer” part of the logo.
The results really need to be experienced in person, as photos don’t do them full justice (if you didn’t get your copy contact us), but if you’re keen to understand in more detail how it was done, then you can read the digital version here. A video demonstrating the process is embedded on page 14.
We plan to bring you more demonstrations of the development of digital print in 2018.
