Peter Lloyd, general manager at Kale Print says, “In line with our values of being innovative and providing best in class print production for our clients, the Iridesse production press is a perfect fit.
“The installation went like clockwork and we were up and running live work on day three of install. Jeremy from Fujifilm Business Innovation was there on hand to help with training of our production, studio, and sales teams throughout the week.
These new innovation features the Iridesse offers, means we can now provide our Bay of Plenty clients with a wider range of eye catching embellishments. Perfect for smaller run digital printing and packaging and at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods of manufacturing.
The Iridesse offers six colour stations meaning it can output multiple special colours in one pass such as white, gold, silver, and clear varnish. It can also overlay or underlay specialty metallic and neon colours, while maintaining high productivity, high quality, and paper versatility. “The Iridesse also allows us to print onto thicker substrates than before, making it ideal for smaller run packaging and business cards.” Other features include the 1200mm single sided and 729mm double sided printing for presentation folders or multi panel brochures and landscape PUR books.
For our creative clients and agencies we can offer a predefined metallic colour palette that can be downloaded to Adobe creative suite allowing easy and fast use of the Iridesse colours and the ability to enhance photographic images with more vibrant colour than traditional CMYK printing.
Peter says, “Investing in new technology helps drive Kale Print’s success as a market leader in the print industry.
It enables us to change up our offering significantly and we now cover a comprehensive range of print products and services such as sheet fed printing, design, signage, window and vehicle graphics, point of sale, merchandise, labels, and packaging.
“The wider range of embellishments and expanded range of specialty and premium stocks that the Iridesse delivers will enable our team to better demonstrate how our clients can improve their marketing collateral.”
