Colourpoint sets foiling focus with Foliant

Bourne End-based commercial print company Colourpoint has invested in a new Foliant Multi-functional Inprinting Unit from Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS) in an effort to enhance its foiling offering to customers.

Design agencies account for around 80 percent of all work produced Colourpoint and the company has noted an increase in demand for work with foiling effects.

The 30 m/min B2+ Foliant Taurus 530 NG, featuring a rising pile back separation stream feeder and a suction paper feed head, will now enable Colourpoint to take on more of this type of work.

Karl Hnat, director at Colourpoint, says: “We looked at the machine at various trade shows, tested it in the IFS demonstration suite and saw it running at another printers who are producing quality work similar to ourselves.

“We have traditional foiling capabilities, but the foiling unit allows us to offer cost effective digital foiling on fast turnaround short runs. We can respond to what customers want.

“People want work completed faster and faster, sometimes next day is not enough. It helps us offer a more responsive service.”
