http://whattheythink.com/news/93847-color-logic-certifies-kernow-metalik-silver-media-xerox-iridesse-press/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=daily

West Chester, Ohio – Kernowprint Metalik silver media is the first Kernow substrate certified by Color-Logic for the Xerox Iridesse press. Discussing the certification, Color-Logic Director of Sales and Marketing Mark Geeves said: “The Iridesse Press with White Dry Ink consistently produces impressive images on Kernow Metalik silver media. The entire range of Color-Logic decorative effects, in addition to the 250 standard Color-Logic metallic colors, offer Iridesse users the ability to develop new markets and applications for their customers.”

Color-Logic Chief Technology Officer Richard Ainge also commented on the certification: “In today’s ultracompetitive print market, time-to-market is critical; Color-Logic tools can speed prepress throughput incredibly. Using Color-Logic, graphic designers no longer need to manually create white ink masks and can confidently create metallic special effects that heretofore required countless hours and often endless trial and error. And with the Color-Logic FX-Viewer, designers no longer need valuable press time to verify their work before going to production.”

To aid in feeding, the KernowPrint Lucid for HP Indigo features an opaque paper backing that can be easily removed after printing. In addition, the material takes advantage of the Kernow Cobalt Coating Technology for HP Indigo to create an optimal surface for ink adhesion and colour vibrancy, while fully controlling static during printing and post-processing. Users can deliver high-durability prints that repel liquids, greases, and oils, including harsh industrial chemicals. Based on a polyester core, KernowPrint Lucid for HP Indigo can handle repeated folding and handling, including strenuous use in applications such as machine button panels and membrane switches.
The KernowPrint Lucid clear synthetic material for HP Indigo is available in a range of sheet sizes for any HP Indigo press and comes in 105, 130 and 180 micron thick sheets.
The newly released material joins the growing range of synthetic products for HP Indigo driven by Kernow’s Cobalt Coating Technology. The combination of high optical clarity, extreme durability and easy handling has led customers to early successes in markets, such as industrial manufacturing, promotional piece embellishment, and greeting card special effects.

“The success of our Cobalt Coating Technology with customers has been above and beyond anything we expected”, states Dan Lawellin, HP Indigo Materials Product Manager for Kernow Coatings. “As customers have come to trust Cobalt, optically clear materials have been one of the top requested products by our closest partners. KernowPrint Lucid for HP Indigo gives us a way to answer those needs with a material that is tough, durable, and easy to use. The HP Indigo press is perfectly suited for short run and variable needs of markets such as membrane switches. By providing customers with a new high clarity material, they can take advantage of the digital print technology and further transition business from traditional screen and offset prints to the more lucrative digital presses. Outside of industrial print, we’re seeing designers really jump on this product for layered special effects that add excellent depth to promotion pieces and greeting cards.”

The Growing Need For Personalisation On Plastic Labels In The Horticultural Market

Plastic is an excellent material for durability and it gives print pieces a modern, sophisticated look. Additionally, items printed on plastic can be placed almost anywhere because they work well in environments with high humidity, they won’t deteriorate when wet and won’t tear apart when handled under harsh conditions. Plastic labels are available in a wide range of thicknesses, making them versatile products for a number of applications where durability is a must.

So it doesn’t come as a surprise to see multiple shapes of printed plastic signs, tags, labels or plant stabbers all over the place when visiting your local garden centre – an environment particularly subject to continuous exposure to water and chemical sprays, fertilizers, mud and heavy handling…

…or does it?

Horticulture’s love-hate relation with plastics

Ironically, in an industry where the core products are “naturally” growing organisms, such as plants, trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables, the horticulture industry is a market where plastic labels and plants are almost happily living together side by side. But with the current growing concerns about our everyday relationship with disposable plastics, you could be forgiven for thinking that plastics, in particular, should be banned from this industry.

More than ever, in a competitive market, plant growers and garden centres require informative labels and point of sale signs to attract customers to their large range of products. The labelling needs to be just right to market the plants themselves and make them stand out from the competition; it needs to be informative, colourful, eye-catching to help the end-users/customers choose the right product and provide enough aftercare information once purchased. But most of all, these labels need to last, to withstand the variable outdoor conditions and repeated watering while being on show either at the growers, the garden centre or in-store.

And while wood-based paper products, naturally produced from our forests, could sound like a more environmentally-friendly solution, papers laminated for improved durability will still show signs of weakness, particularly around the edges where water can easily seep between the paper and the lamination film. This is proving that laminated paper-based labels or tags could not possibly hold up to the expected conditions over time, ending up looking too dirty or shabby after repeated exposure to humid conditions. Furthermore, adding lamination to improve durability does not reduce the use of plastic – on the contrary, it makes it a poly-material product difficult to recycle. In most cases the recycling process involves shredding the paper-plastic laminate without removing the plastic lamination, which will invariably end up in a landfill.

Nowadays plastics have gained bad press due to sustainability concerns around recyclability. While this may be true with some plastic materials such as PVCs, those made from PET and PP are a lot kinder to the environment in terms of the production process and are easier to recycle. They are certainly better than laminated paper solutions, which can neither be recycled as paper or plastic for the reason mentioned above, nor, more importantly, can match synthetics’ outdoor durability and tear resistance – the very thing that makes them ideal candidates for horticultural labelling demands.

Increase in bespoke and short-run label stock for better flexibility

Traditionally, horticultural suppliers would offer all seeds listed in their catalogue along with the appropriate labels, tags or stabbers. This would save growers a considerable amount of time and labour cost by avoiding the need to produce their own labels for the crops at the time of potting and packing. Usually supplied in high volume, this solution allowed for a longer runs of labels (printed Offset or flexo) to keep the production cost very low.

Alternatively, there are growers purchasing ready-printed labels separately for a more flexible approach, who personalise the data by thermal print transfer process, thus making their supply to retailers more flexible. Moreover, some growers are setting up their own nurseries with onsite print rooms producing their own bespoke labels on demand, allowing them to personalise the finished article to their customers’ specifications. They are often equipped with 2 or 3 medium sized laser printers and finishing cutting equipment to offer shorter run flexibility to the smaller garden centres.

Producing lower volumes of printed tags is another fantastic way of trying to be kinder to the environment and with the benefit of digital printing, it is now possible to print the exact amount of tags and labels needed by the growers onsite, as well as retailers – even at a store level.

Similarly to some growers, garden centres are also taking a step further. They prefer the convenience of printing their own labels, reducing the amount of production waste and the added benefit of having the flexibility of personalising each tag and label, even down to their store logo, with a minimal financial investment. There are now specialist firms supplying software in a ready-to-use package, combining a bank of high-quality photographic images with an easy-to-setup, pre-designed templates. Alongside it, there is a relatively small desktop laser printer and pre-designed perforated synthetic tags, wrap-around collar labels or even plant stabbers which, once printed, can be separated and used immediately.  An attractive proposition especially for smaller garden centres!

What Could Possibly Go Wrong With Cheap Synthetics?

The “It’ll be OK” approach when running unapproved synthetics can come at a significant price. The cost of your digital printer can be anywhere from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars and we all know that run time is the only time where money is made. Jams, dust contamination and fuser melts are the reality when running synthetics not approved for your device – are you willing to take those risks?

 

Choosing the right synthetic means the difference between profit and loss, and uptime and downtime. But with the large onslaught of new brands appearing, what separates good synthetics from bad?

Topcoat is key

Toner does not stick to polyesters on its own. The only bond holding your graphics to the sheets is the chemical engineering of the topcoat. That’s right! Not only that, additives in topcoat help manage the sheet through the press and help mitigate static buildup, lessening instances of jams and wholly determining printability. The so-called econo-synthetics are prone to topcoat flaking and dust contamination. There is a world of difference between certified and qualified brands like KernowPrint – the most tested, most trusted synthetics in the laser print world today, and those making claims. There is no comparison, period. Most uptime, fewest complaints, and highest OEM certifications and listings around…KernowPrint products are that good!

We love soup, just not fuser soup!

When picking the correct synthetic you need to consider the base sheet itself. Heat stability means everything inside your toner fusion press. Your printer fuses around ~400F and most econo-synthetics melt at ~220F. That is called RISK, also known as fuser soup! Only KernowPrint synthetics have a proprietary base sheet of stabilized polyester specifically engineered for fusing temperatures. Check with your OEM for officially approved synthetics. Be cautious about econo-synthetic compatibility claims from the “our products are just as good” suppliers. There are thousands of dollars tied into your digital press and your selection of synthetics can mean the difference between being in the green or being in the red. See for yourself why KernowPrint is the World’s top selling Synthetic and the choice recommended by all the OEM’s – it simply outperforms all the rest!

Choose wisely, Choose KernowPrint!
