The Scodix CastandCure application is the latest addition to the Scodix portfolio of applications, making 3D holographic effects more accessible to brands.
Now available with the Scodix Ultra Pro Digital Enhancement Press with Foil Station, Scodix offers a record nine different enhancement effects.
Employing a variety of standard off-the-shelf holographic patterns, as well as customised designs, this technique delivers unmatched style and security features to brochures, packaging, displays, book covers, greeting cards, and bags. Scodix CastandCure creates a high-impact 3D holographic effect, bringing a whole new dimension, and value proposition, to customers’ print projects. Easy-to-operate with minimal setup, the effect is cost proficient for short to medium run lengths.
‘This particular finish is causing a real buzz among brand owners and we expect it to be very popular in the greeting cards sector and in packaging. Specifically, we can see some scope in the authentication of products as counterfeiting becomes more and more of an issue for brands,’ stated Amit Shvartz, Scodix marketing VP. ‘The process works by ink jetting the clear polymer directly on to the sheet before passing through a foiling unit, which leaves a micro-embossed pattern on the polymer, thus creating stunning holographic effects by refracting the light. Scodix unique Pin Activate Secure technologies deliver superior enhancement with ultra-fine detail and flawless registration, achieving outstanding CastandCure quality. The results are amazing.’
Shvartz continued, ‘We are in the unique position at Scodix of being able to offer customers an unmatched number of digital enhancement applications. This latest addition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovation.’
