DESIGN, PRINT, IMPRESS.
Here at Kenmore we have a small group of talented and innovative key employees in the manufacturing department. Over the years, we have learned to apply techniques from older machines to modern ones. This allows us to achieve end results that other envelope manufacturers do not have in their wheelhouse.
spot uv coating
Spot UV is a creative way to add depth and contrast through varying levels of sheen and texture. Because the Spot UV technique creates a very distinctive look, it makes the image or text stand out above the rest of the print.
Liquid Foil is a great alternative to hot foil or cold foil that will enhance the brilliance of your printed product.
Soft touch is applied to create a velvety texture. The soft feel provides a barrier that creates a fingerprint resistant product.
When you want to add a touch of magic, glitter coating creates a shine that no other effect can match. Individual flecks of glitter are visible in the coating which forces the recipient to take their time viewing the piece.
cast & cure
By leveraging the Eagle Systems add-on mounted above the K&B Rapida 106, we can apply film in line with printing operation. This film is available in a variety of patterns including high gloss, matt, and holographic images, creating a striking effect for the senses.
These bright and eye-catching colors will not go unseen.
A unique new feature showcasing a shape extending beyond the normal straight-sided envelope. This remarkable new technology will be sure to get the recipients’ attention as the shape is unlike any other envelope in their mailbox. This ain’t your mom’s envelope.
Touch is the most sophisticated of the five senses. With our texture varnish applied to select areas, the envelope will get noticed through feel before it’s even seen.
With cold foil there is a unique ability to print on the foil creating a rainbow of iridescent colors on one envelope.
