Masterpiece Graphix Partners with Xeikon
FENTON, Mo.—Masterpiece Graphix (MGX) of St. Louis, Missouri, has partnered with Xeikon to offer metalized substrate enhancement services for the Xeikon label presses. Xeikon-authorized MGX Brilliant Metalized Paper/Perm/40# (R1361) will be one of the substrates running on the Xeikon 3500 digital press at the Labelexpo 2010 show in Chicago, Ill. Xeikon is exhibiting at Booth 6135, Hall F at Labelexpo.
MGX’s R1361 has been enhanced with a digital topcoat and is authorized for use on all the Xeikon label presses for the best possible image quality and toner adhesion. MGX also offers Xeikon-authorized enhanced metalized material solutions for synthetic substrates such as BOPP and polyester.
According to Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager – Labels & Packaging, Xeikon, “We are excited about our partnership with MGX. Our presses work exceptionally well with most standard self-adhesive label substrates without any pre-treatment or coating (paper and BOPP). In the case of MGX’s R1361 Metalized substrate, a digital topcoat is required to optimize the image quality and adhesion. All the MGX substrates that we have tested work really well with our presses. We will demonstrate this at Labelexpo.”
“We are all about creating materials that enhance digital printing performance,” said Doug Watson, President of Masterpiece Graphix. “We have a high regard for Xeikon and it is a privilege to develop materials for them.”
