By Wayne Robinson | June 11, 2021
The latest issue of Print21 hits the desks of owners and managers of printing companies in Australia and New Zealand, the cover providing a dazzling example of the advancement in printing.
Produced by Avon Graphics, with its new Alumma embellishment system, the front cover is an Australian first, produced with the tool-less gilding and bump-free embossing of the new system at Avon’s Melbourne site.
Tate Hone, Managing Director of Avon, who developed the system, said, “We are very proud of Alumma. It produces a high quality sheet with everything from solids to fine details. And Alumma X frees up space on the back, with dent-free embossing.
