“High-value, high impact print projects are more important than ever in today’s increasingly digitized communications environment,” says John Kelly, president of CTI Paper USA. “Designers and print buyers are looking for specialty papers that ‘go big’ in capturing the attention of customers and prospects … Our new holographic foils add new creative options for print and design pros who demand the very best.”

The Kromekote Collection features a complete offering of cast-coated papers for use in production-rated, toner-based digital presses, color copiers, offset presses and HP Indigo presses. It is ideal for print promotions, direct mail, brochures, book and report covers, business cards, presentation folders, invitations, greeting cards, retail packaging, labels and more.

The new Rainbow Foil and Light Pillars Foil papers deliver high gloss and reflectivity of blues, greens, oranges and reds from ambient light sources. Rainbow Foil creates diffuse holographic rainbow colors across the sheet while the Light Pillars Foil creates holographic columns of spectral light. Together with Kromekote’s silver and gold foils, these papers command attention with a luxury finish. As a demonstration, the image of a fresh, shiny green apple anchors the new Kromekote Collection swatchbook cover. The apple features a sculpted emboss that seemingly lifts it off the page. Fresh water droplets highlight super-fine detail and create a high-definition, three-dimensional effect.
