Specialty substrate leader GPA (McCook, Illinois) has announced the addition of Setalux Fabric to its collection of Liquid Ink X branded substrates for HP Indigo digital presses. With its soft, textured surface, the new fabric “transforms any project into a work of art. Now, printers, brand owners and graphic designers can find this material in North America exclusively at GPA,” the company added. Offering the rich woven appearance expected from a textile, Setalux Fabric is ideal for creating photo books and yearbooks in short runs, crafting packaging for high-end products, and creating “museum-quality” art prints on demand. GPA added that, unlike similar products, it will not crack or whiten along folded edges due to its premium construction.
The new product can be transformed through a variety of finishing processes – including folding, blind stamping, foil stamping and die cutting. Engineered for optimal press performance, it offers excellent ink transfer, ink adhesion and image reproduction. It also provides strength, with resistance to marring and abrasion. GPA is currently offering Setalux Fabric in 13″ x 19″ and 20.8″ x 27.5″ sheets for HP Indigo presses with One Shot Mode.
