Kernow North America, the global leader in high performance print media, is proud to announce new colors of the MetaliK brand of print media, the new range of highly reflective metalized materials developed specifically for digital print processes. These new colors include bright gold and bright copper, along with the previously launched bright silver.
MetaliK is a new metalized print media designed to provide optimal print performance while overcoming some of the challenges faced when digitally printing metallic stocks. Incorporating a propriety new technology to control static and maintain strong toner adhesion, MetaliK provides user the ability to produce vivid prints with a bright, crisp metallic finish. The MetaliK line opens many avenues for printers looking to leverage the growing interest in reflective and metal materials. When combined with new advancements in white inks and toners, printers can create bright accents without the need for a secondary process such as foil-stamping.
Following on the success of the MetaliK Silver, Kernow is releasing a new line of board materials in gold and copper. The expanded line of colors allows customers to quickly and cost effectively produce a wide range of metallic looks. The added colors allow designers to add warm undertones to prints and allow printers to produce the look and feel of gold and copper foil stamping without the need for post processing costs. Engineered for strength and rigidity, the MetaliK board folds easily with no cracking, making it a superb solution for applications such as luxury packaging, greetings cards and direct mail.
Commenting on the announcement, president of Kernow North America, Bosy Colak: "The addition of gold and copper to the MetaliK line is just another way that Kernow is innovating the print industry. The silver MeatliK has been a huge hit with customers and the new additions address market demands to expand on the success of our previous MetaliK products. This new range will enable companies to enter into and dominate lucrative high-end applications such as luxury packaging, direct mail and greeting cards."
The expanded MetaliK line is available globally through a broad network of distributors.
