Cartamundi USA installs Eco-Eagle Cold Foil System

November 20, 2013

"Our customers are overwhelmed by the results and accelerated turnaround time," says Bob Nickel, VP, Specialty Packaging Innovative Technology/R&D for Cartamundi USA.

Graphic Art Systems, Inc., a US-based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, has announced the completed installation of its Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system at the US headquarters of Cartamundi and Elite Packaging. Cartamundi is a producer of playing, trading, collectible and game card products for casinos, home entertainment houses, software developers, as well as both trading and collectible card manufacturers. With the installation completed just weeks ago, the company says the impact of the Eagle System is already telling. 

“Eagle offers us an all-American made machine that’s extremely user-friendly, operates as a stand-alone unit, and comes with the renowned hands-on guidance of Mike King and his crew,” says Bob Nickel, VP, Specialty Packaging Innovative Technology/R&D for Cartamundi USA. “Whenever you’re driving into new territory, a little hand-holding is critical. Eagle has made the investigation, installation and implementation of cold foil into Cartamundi easy.

“We’ve spent over nine months researching how we could best inject cold foil into our workflows. And we analyzed every available option. After visiting current Eagle users to see the system in action, the last step was to visit Mike and his team at PRINT in September. We received the system right out of their booth, but by then we were already sold. After a two-day install, we’ve already run three jobs through the Eagle System and our KBA 106 Press. Our customers are overwhelmed by the results and accelerated turnaround time.”
