Nicholasville, Kentucky-based converter Turner Labels has expanded its finishing capabilities with the recent investment in A B Graphic International Digicon Series 3 with Big Foot 50 Ton hot foil and embossing module.
Founded in 1967, Turner Labels offers a wide range of materials and finishing options for premium labels. The investment in digital printing capabilities enables the company to grow significantly over the past year and expand its label embellishment selections with a new finisher.
Turner Labels will use the new Digicon Series 3 with the Big Foot hot foil stamp to elevate product success with a new line of label embellishments, including screen varnish, and leave a lasting impression on customers. This innovation will also cater to environmental friendliness as it provides lass waste during production.
The AB Graphic ‘Big Foot’ hot foil stamp of 50 Tons of pressure gives a lasting impression for custom labels. The machine runs twice the speed of Turner Labels’ previous hot stamp unit and can run multiple colors of foil in one pass. Thanks to this new finisher's increased capabilities, customer products can receive the ultimate finishes for digital production in the label industry.
‘Any design that can connect with its audience will sell itself. The purpose of packaging is to grab someone’s attention so your product will stand out on a shelf of dozens or hundreds of other similar products,’ said Mackenzie Erb, digital art ad solutions manager at Turner Labels, on the impact he is seeing from food and beverage industry customers that have continued to persevere over the past year.
