Many print shops today try to offer their customers print products that are set apart from the competition. One of the methods to differentiate is to offer embellishments like foiling. Foil is an application that catches the eye with what we call a little bit of sparkle. It also adds a touch of luxury to a printed piece, whether the final product is a poster, mailer or packaging. Moreover, we have shown through our case studies that adding cold foil can open the doors to more markets and drive more profit.
There is truly no better time than today to discover the benefits that inline cold foil will deliver. In fact, one of the first benefits we want to share is that you don’t have to take your work to an offline or secondary process. This alone will save your print operation time, complexity and, overall, costs associated with producing the final print project. Just imagine being able to print and foil in a continuous inline process.
That brings us to another incredible benefit of working with an Eagle Systems Cold Foil solution…it is fully automatic. Actually, it is more than fully automatic; it is very simple to use and does not even have an operator console. From installation of the cold foil unit, which takes about 2-3 days (production on the 4th day!) to only 2 hours of required operator training you can be assured you will see a significant return on investment in a short period of time.
Another benefit is that you don’t have to worry about jobs that do and don’t have foil on them. They are able to run seamlessly without starting and stopping the press. No change over required to start using the cold foil. Do more, take less time to complete it and, a benefit you might not have thought of right off hand…create foiled print without foil dust. A huge benefit to your print environment from a cleanliness and contaminant perspective.
For those worried about the speed your press will run, Eagle Systems has you covered there as well. When an Eco-Eagle is installed on a sheetfed offset printing press, you won’t have to worry about slowing down your printing press because it can run at high-speed without sacrificing quality. That quality includes being able to foil, at speed, ultra-fine detail to 175 line screen, as well as, a wide variety of coverage from light to heavy. And you will be able to utilize one color of foil (silver) while over printing to create any color foil as a final product.
The Eagle Systems Cold Foil solution is designed to work with narrow and wide webs and you can also opt-in to our Eagle Cold Foil Certification (ECFC) course for training designed to give all your operators and executives an understanding of how to get the most out of your newest investment and sales tool. Customers find that our ECFC not only optimizes their usage, but also opens the door to knowing how to sell foil, compete on new jobs and win for more profits.
We invite you to contact us today to learn more about these benefits, see it working in action and discover how you can get started adding easy-to-use inline cold foil to your offset printing environment today.
