Brightside Print & Design increases laminating capacity
Brightside Print & Design has installed a Matrix 370 laminator to help it cope with the “unprecedented demand” it has seen since restrictions on coronaviruses were relaxed last month.
The refurbished device, which adds to the Stratford, east London-based digital printer portfolio, was supplied by Morgana and installed last week.
The Vivid 370 Laminating Die will be used to laminate jobs including brochures, flyers and business cards, for clients such as hotel and restaurant owners, event planners and hotel management teams. festivals.
The device joined a series of other finishing kits at Brightside, including a Morgana Documaster, a Duplo DB-290 Perfect Binder, and a Graphtec F-Mark automatic sheet-cutting system that was installed in April.
The company also operates a Trident desktop laminator and a Seal 62 large format laminator, but the new machine will allow it to keep the SRA3 large-run laminating in-house.
Laurence Hobbs, Brightside Print Sales Manager, said: âSince the Covid lockdown rules changed on July 19, London’s print demands for bars and restaurants have almost doubled. I see a boom in front of us at this rate. Adding the Matrix 370 laminator to our factory list will help us meet this additional demand.
He said Printing week the purchase followed a review of certain other options on the market.
âI looked at a couple of things, although obviously budget was always a factor, and floor space was also important because we have a compact space, and it’s a pretty small machine. “
