Patrick Sinn, owner of Creative Path in Richmond Hill, Ontario, and Konica Minolta Canada, recently partnered to bring the revolutionary MGI JETvarnish 3DS Twin-Head Inkjet System with iFoil and Artificial Intelligence Scanning to North America. Sinn saw the MGI JETvarnish perform at a tradeshow about a year ago and was awe-struck. Eventually, he decided not only to buy the groundbreaking digital finishing system, but to establish an entire new division in his company – to open up new markets, showcase its remarkable capabilities to current customers, and attract new clients. But his ultimate aim was to attract advertising agencies and designers to his studio-type environment where they could create prototypes from the MGI JETvarnish to take to their own clients. He considers its stunning special effects in one press pass as genuine printing “magic” – and the new division’s name, Abra PrintFX, certainly reflects that feeling. The printer is also the first in North America equipped with a Twin-Head Inkjet System that almost doubles the printing speed, and can also accommodate up to 200 microns in raised spot UV thickness.
Hear what this 21-year industry veteran had to say about innovation, technology and how to stay ahead in this challenging environment. His story is also being featured in Graphic Arts Magazine’s September issue that’s already been distributed at Print 17, with the cover printed on Sinn’s MGI JETvarnish to showcase its finishing capabilities in a more tactile way.
