Registration for the 40th anniversary edition of Labelexpo Europe, the world’s biggest label and package printing industry trade show, is now open. Set to take place once again at Brussels Expo from 24-27 September, this unmissable four-day event promises hundreds of live demonstrations of the latest technology, three brand new show features, three expert-led master classes and a workshop.

Esko, a global supplier of integrated hardware and software solutions for wide format digital print professionals, has announced the launch of a Motorized Roll Feeder for its Kongsberg C64 digital cutting table, developed to deliver accurate and efficient cutting of soft signage materials.
minating inaccurate cuts on soft signage jobs due to wrinkles, stretch distortion or imperfectly rewound rolls, the new Motorized Roll Feeder incorporates an active material feed. It avoids stretch by actively feeding the material to the cutting table, rather than pulling it. A dancer bar provides the correct tension with adjustable weights and an active edge correction allows for a steady straight feed, even if the roll is imperfectly rewound after printing. A spreader roll is also incorporated as a final checkpoint to smooth out any remaining wrinkles for precise finishing of soft signage jobs.

“Complex and iconic at the same time” – those were the words of the iF Design Award jury when praising the VariJET 106 digital press from Koenig & Bauer. They were especially convinced by the modern design language and clear colour contrasts. Accordingly, Koenig & Bauer was able to take home a “Gold Winner” trophy in the category “Product” after the grand award ceremony in Munich on 15th March.

Avery Dennison is set to ‘wow’ customers at this year’s FESPA 2019 with a stunning new display booth filled with a range of their latest creations, featuring the Avery Dennison and Mactac brands.

Esko has unveiled a tailored version of Esko Automation Engine, designed exclusively HP Production Pro for Indigo L&P DFE users to increase capacity in upstream prepress processes and boost productivity in digital labels and packaging production.

About this year edition of FESPA Global Print Expo we talk to Roz Guarnori, Exhibitions Director

Last year, the FESPA Global Print Expo was record-breaking. Will Munich break through Berlin? How many exhibitors and guests do you expect?

FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 was a record-breaking event for FESPA, welcoming the largest ever audience for a four-day FESPA event, with 20,442 individual visitors in attendance from 142 countries.

With each event we organise we strive to make it as successful and relevant for our visitors and exhibitors as possible. This year, we’re expecting 700 exhibitors. Where visitors are concerned, we’re hoping to attract a similar number to Fespa 2018.

How much ink you lay down on your screen prints will depend on your individual print job and your substrate. Too much ink on your substrate can lead to prints that bleed beyond the stencil edge, soak through the substrate or fail to cure completely. Too little ink can make the print too light, affect color matching or lead to problems with fibrillation. Knowing how to troubleshoot problems with ink deposits that are too heavy or too light can help you lay down the right amount of ink every time. When it comes to screen printing, there are a few elements that affect how heavy or light your ink deposit is.

Mastering screen printing doesn’t mean turning out perfect screen prints every time. It does mean knowing what to do when prints don’t turn out quite the way you want them to. One common problem to troubleshoot is an uneven ink edge. When something is off in your screen printing process, the edges of your ink might be blurred or wavy, or show the squared segments of your screen mesh. There are several elements to examine when your prints aren’t coming out with crisp, clear edges.

As the weather gets colder, the demand for sweaters heats up! Here’s a primer on the world of fleece. Fleece garments may be a mainstay for screen printers and garment decorators, but “fleece” can refer to a wide variety of fabrics. Here, we’re breaking down the different types of fleece fabric so you have a better idea of which fleeces are best suited to your projects.
