LIA dinner to focus on adding value
The NSW LIA will hold a technical dinner on digital embellishment and value-added print to coincide with International Print Day.
Slated for 23 October at 6pm, the event at the Carnarvon Golf Club in Lidcombe will explore digital embellishments such as UV varnish; spot matte and gloss varnishes; sensory raised and textured spot varnishes; metal foiling and dieless foil applications; and printing on laminates.
Mitch Mulligan, LIA NSW committee member, says the dinner will be a great way to learn about embellishing options that don’t require the level of expertise demanded by processes such as hot foil stamping.
“Despite decreasing print run lengths, print businesses can increase their profits with digital embellishments, which add value to their print. The presenters for the evening will represent the Currie Group, Konica Minolta and Océ, all of which offer a wide variety of digital embellishment.
“This will be a great opportunity to watch, listen and learn and open our minds to possibilities within this space,” he said.
Tickets are $65 for LIA members and $70 for non-members. RSVP to Mike Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Friday 18 October.
