Let’s Face It.

Sometimes 4-color graphics need a little help, a bit of shimmer, a flash of foil, an unexpected texure. We’ll work with you to explore innovative ways to give graphics an extra dimension.

With technologies applied on press, we can give standard materials the look and feel of custom stocks to create memorable brand associations.

HoloKote™

Let it Shine.

It happens to everyone - that shimmer you notice from the corner of your eye that makes you turn to see what it was. Create that same intrigue with HoloKote™, our in-line alternative to custom holograms.

HoloKote™ transforms standard materials into prismatic images or glass-like finishes. Whether you lavishly enhance your graphics or selectively highlight your artwork - it’s up to you.

FoilKote™

Silver Linings.

Silver linings, gilded lillies, golden eggs - metallics are ingrained in our culture and always translate into something desirable. We help you take metallics to the next level with FoilKote™, our in-line alternative to foil stamping.

Imagine combining multiple foil colors without adding costs, adjusting foil colors on-press to get just the shade you envisioned, or creating intricate foil detail previous unachievable with foil stamping.

TextureKote

Raise The Bar.

Textures convey subtle messages - changing perceptions and creating lasting impressions. Recreate a world of textures with TextureKote, our in-line alternative to embossing. TextureKote combines with graphics in entirely new ways, bringing the details of an image to life.

Apply textures to define selective areas, create finely embossed details           
or mimic fabrics, wood grains and other finishes.

VelveKote

No Hard Feelings.

There’s something alluring about touch - an unexpected sensation causes you to pause and run your hand along the surface of an object. Why not add this dimension to your graphics with VelveKote, our in-line answer to soft-touch.

Velvekote opens a world of possibilities for combining 4C graphics, foil stamping, and gloss coating with tactile dimensions. VelveKote’s matte finish seems to absorb light, with no reflectivity for an extreme matte effect.

GemKote

Pearls Of Wisdom.

As the light shifts, colors change. With the slightest tilt in the angle, white becomes mother of pearl, purple becomes amethyst, and yellow turns to gold.

Add irridescence to graphics with GemKote, our coating flecked with a touch of luster.

JewelKote

Sugar Coat It.

Jack Frost, The Sandman, and even the tiniest of pixies all know that sparkle, glitter, and even grit add wonder to everyday objects. Their signature calling cards are cherished in our imaginations. Bring that same sense of delight to your graphics with JewelKote, our coating flecked with glitter. From a light dusting to a lavish coating the choice is entirely up to you.

Impressions™

Raise Some Eyebrows.

Just as post-impressionist painters embraced an artistic movement while rejecting its limitations, we help designers combine color and form for an expressive effect.

Gauguin, van Gogh, and Cezanne broke new ground by challenging conventional limitations. Think of our Impressions™ packaging as your palette knife to sculpt graphics into textured surfaces with a depth previously unattainable.
