Graphite Creative, sponsor of the 2023 GCA Conference and AGM have been specialising the greeting card printing space for almost a decade. They have recently launched a new innovation that is set to shake up the world of foil printing. We asked Andrew Potton to give us the lowdown…

Are there any innovations in your field that you want to share?
Yes, we have a new finish in the market called ‘Liquid Foil’, which is a raised foil process and does not require the cost of expensive dies.
The process appears like an embossed foil and can be run using gloss gold, gloss silver, satin gold and a variety of different colours are now available.
You can also run multiples on a sheet without the need for any dupe dies…it’s a win win all round! It has proved popular thus far, so very happy to send out samples to any publishers interested in this finish. Please feel free to get in touch.
Who would you like to meet at the GCA Conference?
Any publishers of greeting cards and social stationery who would like to work with a friendly, customer-focussed supplier, who can offer something a little different.
