If You Can Print It, You Can Foil It! And This Is Why You Should

By December 28, 2018 No Comments

It is safe to say that print isn’t going anywhere. However, while print will not disappear in an instant, it has become clear that every market is getting more competitive. We see many mergers and acquisitions of print providers in the industry news and within networking groups. The expense of print continues to be eyeballed carefully, which is then paired with a mission to make the print offerings coming out of production stand out from competitive printers in the area. Produce something that catches the eye, creates engagement and loyalty while driving more business and reduced costs.

It is a tall order, especially for those skilled in the art of offset printing. With the continued advancement of digital print enhancements, making sure you have every advantage for your offset print offering is critical. Especially as you look for success and growth in the New Year. Offset has its natural competitive edge in range and depth of color, more affordable long runs and a more durable print finish. With the advancements in inks, many are already leveraging UV inks and advanced plate processes that reduce hazardous waste, speed up make-ready and make it possible to provide the highest quality print while offering short runs to their customers. It is all keeping offset relevant and a critical part of the print value chain.

Is it enough? From The Foil Experts perspective, you are leaving opportunity and money on the table. The advancements in offset over the years have continued to create a print market that wants what is produced by an offset press; but that is not enough. You need to stand out from the crowd and making an impact.
