A Vivid transformation for print firm

A new piece of kit can often leave print business owners wondering how they ever got by without it, but John Brailsford, director of John Brailsford Printers of Rotherham, has gone a step further, describing his business as ‘transformed’.

The game-changing equipment in question is the new Matrix Duplex Pneumatic double-sided B2 laminator from Vivid Laminating Technologies. The machine replaces an older Matrix machine, and slashed the firm’s production time by 50 percent, with Brailsford saying of the latest installation: “With our new Matrix Duplex, we can switch from single to double-sided laminating in just a few minutes.

“The pneumatic roller pressure allows us to use standard OPP film, even with heavy coverage digital print so the savings are enormous, at around 70% less than using our previous digital film laminator."

The new system from Vivid, which is capable of producing 100 SRA3 sheets in just five minutes, was the obvious choice for John Brailsford Printers, who spent some time researching its options before deciding the Matrix ‘just can’t be beat’ on value, adding that Vivid offered a generous trade-in price on the company’s old Matrix model.

Product manager at Vivid Lewis Evans adds: “John Brailsford Printers is a perfect example of a company that can expand using our Matrix range of systems by bringing laminating in-house, adding revenue and speeding up the entire lamination process, whilst benefitting from a great return on investment.

“Our new range of Boss Foiling & Spot UV films will be added to John's Matrix next month to further enhance the added value that this unique system can offer."
