Luminer Converting Group Ramps up Capabilities with Epson® SurePress L-4033AW
When expanding its services, Luminer Converting Group began to experience issues with short run flexographic printing. "It was a time-consuming process, not only when plate mounting and inking up the press, but most of all when color matching difficult or custom colors. We were frustrated with rejects and the reworks from jobs that didn’t initially match the colors designers were requesting," said John Borrelli, partner and COO.
In an effort to alleviate these issues, Borrelli began looking toward a digital label printing solution. The Epson SurePress L-4033AW made it to the top of his list. Since installing the SurePress, Borrelli and his team have printed on an even wider variety of substrates, including metallic, film, paper, and gloss.
Using Specialty Coatings to Help Packaging Stand Out in the Grocery Aisle
Traditionally, packaging was developed and used for purely functional purposes, including the transport, storage and protection of everyday goods. Now we live in a different world where packaging drives sales, communication, advertising, branding, and product security.
In this white paper, Sun Chemical talks about how a variety of special effects coatings that cater to all the senses can differentiate a package on the store shelves.

Advancing Package Graphic Quality through HD Plate Technology
The goal of every brand owner is to sell products in packaging that stands out on the grocery aisle and captures the attention of consumers. In fact, studies show that a package has just nine seconds to make an impression that leads to an impulse purchase.
Package graphics and presentation quality are critically important in helping consumers decide on a purchase. One way to help packaging truly pop off the shelf is to print the graphics with high-definition plate technology.
This white paper will show how Sun Chemical HD plate technology can help printers bring their customers better print quality by expanding tonal range and creating a wider color gamut as well as printed line screen (lpi) without an expensive investment in new equipment.
Using Metrics to Back Up Eco-Friendly Ink Claims
Package printers are more than willing to meet customer demands and tout their environmental stewardship, but when it comes to inks, there remains some skepticism that the many “low-VOC” inks advertised by ink manufacturers actually are as environmentally-friendly as they claim. Many want hard facts and figures to prove those claims. It is for this reason that Sun Chemical developed data-driven methodologies to assess its impact on the environment to use as a guide toward the innovation of processes and products that are more sustainable simultaneously from an economic and environmental dimension. This white paper shows how Sun Chemical collects its data for these reports, utilizes the metrics to benefit customers, and highlights product examples that could help the eco-efficiency of packaging printers.
