BOSS Awards use Mirri Pak for HP Indigo
to provide ticket and book of the night cover
The BOSS Industry Awards recognise and reward those in the office supplies and services industry who can demonstrate real excellence, either as individuals or through the successful performance of their business.
The BOSS Industry Awards were held on the 22nd of October at the International Convention Centre, Birmingham. The tickets for this prestigious event were digitally printed on an HP Indigo by 1st Byte in London. They were printed 4 colour process, plus white onto Mirri Pak for HP Indigo 415mic/ 280g.
The cover for the book of the night was also printed on Mirri Pak for HP Indigo using the same style of artwork and highlighting elements of the bulbs and text in metallic silver.
Sophie Bowyer, Marketing Support Executive, at the British Office Supplies and Services (BOSS) Federation commented “By using the Mirri silver board we could produce a glamorous cover and ticket that continued the extravagant and innovative theme of the event, but also allowed for quick and easy production. The items were printed digitally with key features of the artwork (including light bulbs and text) highlighted in silver using the metallic board.”
Jennifer Deacon, Marketing Manager, at Celloglas and Mirri, commented “The artwork almost looks foiled, but it was achieved using Mirri, they only produced 500 tickets and 500 books of the night, so by digitally printing on Mirri, this saved on the cost of foil dies and the HP Indigo also needs minimal make ready sheets when running the job, offering a cost saving over litho”.
The tickets and book cover were printed both sides and gloss laminated after print, providing a glossy extra finish. By using Mirri, this allows for multiple metallic colours in one pass of the press, in this case silver and metallic blue.
Mirri Pak for HP Indigo is distributed in the UK by Premier Paper and is available in three weights 315mic/220gsm, 415mic/280gsm and 460mic/300gsm.
