Kompac Coats MetalFX Images at Graph Expo

Press release from the issuing company

Somerville, NJ, USA; (October 13, 2008) —To showcase the capabilities of their new Kompac Kwik Finish 26 Offline UV Coating and Curing System, Kompac Technologies has chosen three images printed using MetalFX.  Kompac will be coating the images in Booth 2681, and the items are expected to be popular with attendees as souvenirs of the show.  Commenting on his selection, Kompac Director of Marketing Sean Gilmore said: “The images—a colourful lizard, a majestic butterfly, and sparkling diamonds—look terrific when printed using the MetalFX process, and the Kompac Kwik Finish makes them look even more striking.”  The samples were prepared by Stevenson—The Color Company, of Cincinnati, Ohio, one of the early MetalFX licensed printers.

MetalFX Vice-President Americas Mark Geeves observed: “MetalFX is pleased to cooperate with Kompac.  The Kompac Graph Expo samples graphically demonstrate the stability of MetalFX inks, and provide an excellent example of how designers can further enhance their work through the use of both MetalFX and coatings.  Samples will also be available from the MetalFX, in Graph Expo booth 4549.”
