Anti-counterfeiting Technologies for Packaging
Counterfeiting has become a worldwide problem, and the dangers it poses to brand owners can be vast. It could threaten public health, increase taxes, and raise the price of legitimate products. Worst of all, it could damage the reputation of a brand.
In this white paper, Sun Chemical shows how its diverse brand-protection product portfolio and presence around the world can make it a good fit to help resolve counterfeiting issues on packaging for any multi-national brand.
Luminer Converting Group Ramps up Capabilities with Epson® SurePress L-4033AW
When expanding its services, Luminer Converting Group began to experience issues with short run flexographic printing. "It was a time-consuming process, not only when plate mounting and inking up the press, but most of all when color matching difficult or custom colors. We were frustrated with rejects and the reworks from jobs that didn’t initially match the colors designers were requesting," said John Borrelli, partner and COO.
In an effort to alleviate these issues, Borrelli began looking toward a digital label printing solution. The Epson SurePress L-4033AW made it to the top of his list. Since installing the SurePress, Borrelli and his team have printed on an even wider variety of substrates, including metallic, film, paper, and gloss.

Advancing Package Graphic Quality through HD Plate Technology
The goal of every brand owner is to sell products in packaging that stands out on the grocery aisle and captures the attention of consumers. In fact, studies show that a package has just nine seconds to make an impression that leads to an impulse purchase.
Package graphics and presentation quality are critically important in helping consumers decide on a purchase. One way to help packaging truly pop off the shelf is to print the graphics with high-definition plate technology.
This white paper will show how Sun Chemical HD plate technology can help printers bring their customers better print quality by expanding tonal range and creating a wider color gamut as well as printed line screen (lpi) without an expensive investment in new equipment.
