Foiling and Spot UV-style effects on Laminator


Well-known member
I've been reading about Foiling and Spot UV effects using a Laminator and Digital Press which can be used for short runs and personalisation. Is there anyone out there who has any feedback on this?

I've got a Xerox 700 (toner based), does it also apply to this or only ink based presses similar to GMP Sleek technology

Are there any other alternatives that anyone knows about.

Thanks for the information.

Just to update you, I have spoken to GMP regarding sleeking on our 'existing' desktop laminator but all the sales guy was trying to do was sell me a new laminator!!!!

I'm currently using a desktop D&K Single Sided laminator and also have access to a Matrix MD-460.

My question is, do you need a compressor on your laminator to use the sleeking process or does it work with a standard desktop laminator which doesn't have as compressor or high roller pressure.
