Scodix Embossing & Foiling - Finishing Matters
Tuesday, 14th April 2015

Intro

Scodix was founded in 2007 and in the process created the world’s leader of digital enhancement for the print industry. With currently over 35 distributors worldwide and nearing 200 installations, Scodix is growing at a rapid pace.

We believe that forward thinking and differentiation will give any printing company the leading edge in this crowded industry. And how and why do Scodix feel that they are able to give you this edge? Well read on and find out.

We offer a genuine solution to the business challenges facing commercial printers today

  • How to retain customers through innovation
  • Attracting New clients and developing new markets
  • How to stay profitable

We offer game changing digital technology that promises to leave a lasting impression and will deliver you and your client a genuine competitive edge. We take the time challenging process out of your print jobs by enabling you to produce highly differentiated premium products, in-house, without sending work out for lamination, embossing, hot foil, or other embellishments. The added value of these digitally enhanced products means premium pricing can be charged, even for short runs – translating into higher profitability for your business.

What effect does Scodix offer to your product that will ensure that it will stand out from the rest?

1. Digital Embossing

In conventional processes, embossing requires two dies and a separate press run after any varnishing or laminating. With Scodix SENSE, you can easily produce these valuable effects in one pass.
  • 70 microns of embossed height (without the deboss)
  • 99 Gloss Units (GU), the highest gloss available for printed materials
  • Up to 250 microns (Braille)in polymer height, 100 times higher than selective varnish
  • Variable density capabilities ranging from 1% to 100%
  • Scodix “lens effect”, making colours stand out by magnifying clean light onto the printed colour
2. Spot UV

During 2014 we launched a new Polymer aimed at replacing the traditional spot UV by digitally laying an ultra-thin leaf of Polymer that looks and feels like the traditional process. The benefit? Costs are reduced and this can economically compete on runs of up to 3000 B2 sheets.

3. Metallic

Metallic colors in a digital process using CMYK and one pass with Scodix SENSE™.
Scodix Metallic allows you to enhance prints with metallic colouring by simply utilizing your traditional CMYK colour process either Digital or Litho. The digital one-pass post-print process eliminates the need to send print out for hot foil stamping.

Enhance digital prints with metallic colouring

  • Utilizing a CMYK colour process and Scodix SENSE™ – No need for additional HW or SW
  • Unlimited number of metallic colours in one print pass
  • Cost effective, easy to use, in-house solution to foil stamping
  • Short run – as low as one-copy

All these effects are produced with the Scodix SENSE polymer by a process that ignites the standard colours through magnification.

4.Web to Print – Visualisation software

Again, during 2014, we announced the arrival of our visualisation solution. This tool allows the B2C businesses to offer a template driven business card operation that through simple text entering will render the file, create the fifth spot UV file and then show the consumer how the Scodix effect can enhance their product. Simply put the W2P tool is the online salesperson by showing the glossy, embossed end product.

Scodix digital enhancements make a tangible difference to each online order.

Now you can ensure that each and every creation you produce brings something new and desirable to the table, or you can refresh your older pieces with exciting new additions. Add shine, raised elements, different textures, metallic colours or just expand your audience base to those who are sight-impaired with Braille.

In a nutshell, if you can envision it, we can help you create it!

By having the advantage of high-gloss and variable densities and metallic’ s, you are able to offer your customers tangible products so they won’t only just see the finished product but the will really feel it too and this is proven to leave the customer with a real lasting impression.
