LUXfx Digital Spot Varnish and Metallic Foil


Transform Your Print Projects with Eye-Popping Sensory Effects

In a fast-paced, ever-changing print industry with increasing customer demands, differentiation is the key to achieving greater market share and longer shelf life. The ability to outshine the competition and deliver truly memorable products is the top priority.

The growing appetite for digital embellishments stems directly from this need to stand out, and TEAM’s digital print technology continues to evolve to meet this demand.

It’s why we built our advanced suite of digital embellishment services—known as LUXfx.

We understand that customers are continually inundated with marketing campaigns from all sides. That’s why we always continue to add cutting-edge technology to our capabilities, so you can help any brand owner rise above the white noise through digitally enhanced, tactile print communications that add new and emotionally intriguing dimensions to their print projects.

Make no mistake—differentiation has bottom-line consequences in today’s visually competitive world. Increasingly, print providers are finding that special effects and embellishments that create a sensory connection with their audience can help drive overall return on investment (ROI). Simply put, our digital embellishment capabilities are adding tangible value to print projects.

Amazing Variability

Our LUXfx digital embellishment capabilities have been designed to generate a scalable upgrade path for a full range of production environments and post-press applications. We can deliver amazing performance and variability for the most demanding applications in the fastest growing markets.

What makes our technology truly unique is the incredible variability you can experience during print runs. For example, a run of 10,000 items could have 10,000 different foil patterns (or 2,000 each of 5 different patterns, etc.). And any changes can be made on the fly by the press operator. Also, digital varnish can be applied with variable thickness, enhancing tactile and 3D qualities, giving your print projects the potential to generate increased interest and remain memorable longer. These are just some of the benefits your project could experience:

  • Ability to use variable data for personalizing text and graphics “on-the-fly” on every piece produced
  • UV coating ranging from 3-200 microns thick for 3D raised texture effects and a tactile finish
  • Digital hot foil stamping supporting up to 5 colored foils applied in one pass
  • Embossing from 3 to 232 microns
  • Quick prototyping and short run customization flexibility
  • 100% digital process means no make-ready, no plates, no screens and no dies
  • Quick prototyping
  • Short-run customization flexibility

Our ability to perform variable data printing adds an entirely new spectrum of compelling personalization capabilities to help you maximize your marketing efforts. Now, you can achieve more levels of targeted personalization than you ever imagined, whether with basic customization such as name, address, sentence, etc., or realize full customization with multiple criteria such as images, texts, and layout to achieve the attention-grabbing differentiation your project deserves.
