PrintBITS: April 2013 – The ESKO Edition
Shaping the Future with the ESKO digital finisher
Building on the success of digital printing, we have focused our efforts on delivering short run digital finishing products with the new Kongsberg i-XE10 (we call it the ESKO). The ESKO offers digital finishing solutions, such as scoring, kiss-cutting (for labels), and die-cutting for hundreds of substrates with speed and precision.
Through the efficient and versatile finishing solutions offered by ESKO, we can focus on the conceptual language of visual communication devices.
Class Seminar: Die-cutting 101
Die cutting is a relatively inexpensive way to “push the envelope” when creating unique effects with your projects. A die-cut element draws attention to the 3D nature of paper and the character of the material itself. It will accentuate design elements and add fresh, new life to your work. Die cutting is mostly used as a feature – taking an industrial process and turning it into a creative component.
As an offset and digital print shop, we find a myriad of ways to utilize die-cutting.
