NEWBURYPORT, Mass.—ITW Foils has reached an agreement to transition the production, assembly, sales, and after sales support of its IKELA hot stamping units to Telstar Engineering. The IKELA rotary hot stamping unit provides converters with the capability to hot foil stamp in-line with their current equipment. Rather than buying a separate off-line press, converters can use hot foil stamping in-line in combination with flexography, rotary screen printing, rotary letterpress, and other technologies in a variety of combinations. The hot stamp unit production will move from the IKELA facility in Sarasota, Fla. to the Telstar facility in Burnsville, Minn. ITW will continue to produce IKELA

Some might be able to afford to let business walk, but for others, the extra business may make or break their year. For the latter, a major business decision is at hand. A converter can take any number of approaches to provide solutions for its customers, but two options quickly emerge at

Want the look? Want the feel? Converters tell packagePRINTING why rotary screen printing is the process of choice for producing stand-out labels and containers, despite its extra costs. IN THE LAST few years, rotary screen printing has pretty much become a prerequisite for label converters looking to keep up with competitors and their own customers' requests. Its ability to produce a look, as well as a feel, not achievable with other printing processes has made rotary screen printing "almost a necessary evil," said Dan Plash, sales manager, Telstar Engineering. "It's getting to the point that label printers are almost being forced into adding screen
