Did you know that with the right system you can use a laminator for foiling! Produce spot UV-style effects! and create holographic finishes!
The folks at Vivid recently told me that these days fully half of their inquiries for the Matrix Pneumatic machines have some interest in foiling. The reasons are simple, with no set-up or need for expensive dies, it's a perfect solution for one off jobs or runs into the hundreds. The effects are being applied to wedding invitations, boutique packaging, business cards, book covers and more. The printer controls the work and turn time because the job never leaves their shop, plus the cost is kept way down because there are no minimum charges and set-up fees.
If you want to see it, you can view a sampling below with the short video that shows foiling with a Vivid Pneumatic Matrix:
