i-Sub Digital will be a key exhibitor at this month's The Trophex Show (January 19th and 20th) at the NEC in Birmingham, showing how large-format printing equipment can be used to great small-format effect.
The Kettering-based technology supplier will be exhibiting its exclusive Digi-Foil system, demonstrating its groundbreaking, timesaving capabilities to the trophy, award and personalisation markets.
Officially launched in autumn 2013, Digi-Foil combines a Mimaki UJF desktop printer with foil and a heated applicator to achieve foil effects that are identical to those produced by traditional foiling techniques – but at a fraction of the cost, time and materials wastage. Metallics in a range of colours, woodgrain effects, holographic images and a multitude of patterns can all be produced digitally on Digi-Foil.
Featuring white ink and clear varnish, the Mimaki UJF-6042 can also be used for direct printing on substrates up to 150mm thick, enabling the creation of unique textures and personalisation.
I-Sub Digital will also be showcasing the metallic, white and full colour inks of the Mimaki CJV30-60 print-and-cut unit. By switching from printing to cutting automatically, awards businesses can produce eye-catching output easily.
Representatives from Hybrid Services, the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for Mimaki, will also be on hand to demonstrate the kit to Trophex attendees on i-Sub Digital's stand.
"We're looking forward to Trophex and showing how our large-format printing equipment can be used to great effect by trophy and personalisation specialists," says Andy Spreag, Director of i-Sub Digital.
"Foiling and direct printing using metallic inks can create whole new business opportunities, and for much less money and time than many traditional techniques."
The Trophex Show runs from Sunday January 19th to Monday January 20th 2014 at the NEC, Birmingham. I-Sub Digital can be found at stand 256.
