KDX, a manufacturer of thermal lamination films, has joined with Intelligent Finishing Systems Ltd (IFS) and Graphic Arts Supplies (GAS) to share technical expertise and offer a free lamination film starter pack with every new Foliant laminator.


The starter packs have been carefully created to give the customer a taste of the range of lamination films available from KDX, including gloss, matt, anti-scuff, silky matt and the innovative ALLSTICK family of digital thermal lamination films.


This partnership approach benefits new Foliant customers by giving them access to KDX’s range of thermal lamination films, all supplied by either IFS or Graphic Arts Supplies.


According to IFS managing director Bryan Godwyn, this is the result of a 12 month evaluation process of the KDX range. “The KDX film has consistently performed to a high quality. The starter pack really gives customers the freedom to try out many different finishes supported by a training programme with our technical specialists,” he said.


Graphic Arts Supplies is a family run business and has been a merchant to the print trade for almost 50 years. For the last 10 years it has been supplying thermal laminating film and has built a strong reputation within the finishing sector working with IFS and KDX. 


Lee Murphy, director at Graphics Art Supplies, explains how the relationship with KDX has developed: “Brexit has brought us and KDX closer together due to KDX’s unwavering support through a tricky period for the industry. We are now enjoying great success selling KDX’s comprehensive range of thermal laminating films including the newly launched 27-micron digital film ALLSTICK, which allows customers to print, laminate immediately and complete further finishing processes on the fly, which was not always possible with other digital films.”
