Specialist film supplier Graphic Image Films has expanded its range of Derprosa laminating films on offer in the UK.

Exclusive UK supplier for Spanish laminating film manufacturer, Derprosa, Graphic Image Films is now offering the company’s new Soft Touch range including new Black Soft Touch and Metalised Soft Touch films, which are suitable for both litho or digital printing.

The newly available metalised range, which includes new colours solid red and blue matt films, can be over-printed, embossed, foiled or spot UV-coated.

The company is targeting packaging firms of high-end products such as cosmetics, with the new metallic range.

Graphic Image Films has also added gloss and matt BOPP-based, anti-bacterial films to its range, which are aimed at organisations where hygiene is paramount such as hospitals and children’s nurseries. The products are available in gloss and matt finishes. All prices depend on specification.

Sales and marketing director Sandro Mosquera said that Graphic Image Films was unique in the UK with its ability to supply such a broad range of specialist laminating films in bespoke widths and reel lengths, with next day delivery.

Mosquera said the new range of products on offer would allow clients in the printing and packaging industry to create more "luxurious and innovative" products.

He added: "The market needs some new finishes like this, which is what everyone keeps telling us, instead of just going for the standard matt, gloss, silk for example."

"These products are BOPP-based meaning anyone with a standard laminating machine can work with them very easily so they are very adaptable.

 "We feel it is important for a company like ours to continually look for new products that our clients can then use to further improve their product range."

The 16-staff firm, based in Long Crendon, has a turnover of around £4.5m.
