Do you have any products / services you would like to promote at Matrix Print and Design?
We have a new product that we’d like to Promote – Digital Embossing
Digital Embossing is the new sensation. This fantastic innovation makes print positively three dimensional. Compared with Digitally Embossed work, ordinary printing will simply leave you 'feeling rather flat'. Digital Embossing will make your message infinitely more compelling. It will make your printing no longer just a visual experience. Digital Embossing can be used to enhance the majority of coated papers and cards but is most effective when applied to thicker materials. It can also be applied to all laminated products ‐ either Gloss or Matt lamination, however it is most effective over Matt, where the contrast between the laminate and the emboss is striking. The process is equally effective on Litho and Digital Printed work. Digital Embossing is an environmentally friendly embellishment. It produces no harmful waste products or dangerous Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and uses small amounts of power in production.
