Latest Print21 in the mail: New technology cover
The latest issue of Print21 is arriving on the desks of print business owners and managers around Australia and New Zealand, with the front cover providing a dazzling example of the progress of print.
Produced by Avon Graphics, with its new Alumma embellishing system, the front cover is a first for Australia, produced with the tool-free foiling and with dent-free embossing of the new system at Avon’s Melbourne site.
Tate Hone, managing director of Avon, which has developed the system, said: “We are very proud of Alumma. It produces high quality foiling with everything from solids to fine detail. And Alumma X frees up real estate on the reverse side, with dent-free embossing.”
The full Alumma story is inside the May-June issue of Print21, which is packed with valuable, relevant print business features from industry insiders.
