BREAK WITH SPONSORS

SPOT UV AND 3D COATING EFFECTS – INLINE VS. OFFLINE
John Giusto – Curtis Packaging
Giselle De la Moriniere – APT/MGI
Barry Walsh - Scodix
Most of the special effects that only UV can provide started as offline processes, but customer demand and competition has forced many of them to inline. With the introduction of super cool new offline digital UV coating machines such as those offered by Scodix, MGI, and Autobond, is the trade-off in results worth the production value? What are the limits? Where do the lines blur? In this lively discussion you will hear from representatives and adopters of both approaches.
Prepare yourself for yet another fabulous lunch at the Wynn Encore, and a chance to continue networking with other conference-goers.
