Shorewood Packaging Installs In-House Holographic Process
“While Shorewood has offered the outstanding decorative effect of cast-and-cured holographic patterns for some time, having inline equipment in our own plant gives us direct control over quality and enables us to better meet client expectations,” said Greg Chup, manager, Innovation and New Product Development, Shorewood Packaging. “Our new HOLOKLEAR™ system is one of the first 51˝ installations in the world and having it in-house reinforces our leadership position in the packaging industry.”
“HOLOKLEAR™ expands creative opportunities in ways that are both cost effective and environmentally responsible,” said Duncan Watson, vice president, Creative Services, Shorewood Packaging. “It yields both subtle effects desired in certain situations as well as the very bright results of traditional holographic transfer processes. HOLOKLEAR™ is well-suited for the premium consumer, home entertainment, and tobacco product packaging Shorewood is known for.”
The holographic creative visual effects that can be added to a package design are countless. Proofs for custom patterns can be supplied with rapid turnaround.
“The HOLOKLEAR™ process is a cost-effective alternative for reproducing holographic images,” added Chup. “Not only does it use less and lower cost materials, because it is an inline process, the makeready time and related costs of offline operations are eliminated. And, HOLOKLEAR™ meets the on-going demand for sustainability and ‘green’ solutions by reducing waste and energy consumption, employing film that is reusable, and creating packaging that is more recyclable. By acquiring this technology, Shorewood continues to augment the value-add it provides to customers.”
