Digital printing enables the production of highly refined results; the most recent proof of this is offered by the finishing specialist Kurz in Fuerth.
The company has developed a finishing process that can evoke the most subtle metallic sheen on digital printing products. The advantage of the digital metallization process compared to full surface metallization is that the metal lacquer layer is applied only to the desired areas; those that have to be left blank can be created simply by excluding those areas. The digital metallization process offers an economical method to apply any metallic decoration.
On the other hand, Kurz showed at Drupa the design freedom offered by continuous holographic foils that have been produced without recombination: the Kurz Light Line diffractive heat stamping range.
