No dies - just print the image you want foiled, UV cure, and then pass through the foil applicator. Fine line, 3D dimensional coverage foil is now controlled by the screen press”, Rose added. “If you are looking for greater use of your Sakurai or other existing screen press, add foil to your list of services to the graphic arts industry”.
