Since early 2019 we have been working closely with Naked Wines, looking at alternative production processes for their current foiled marketing vouchers.

Producing over 50m vouchers per year, Naked Wines is one of the UK’s largest and most extensive users of foiled marketing. Traditionally Naked wines has used hot foil which limited them in various ways.

Most notably only having a basic foil palette of silver or gold available to them, having to reduce foil area’s to small / basic shapes and only ever being able to apply one foil colour at a time.
Following initial discussions Ecofoil underwent 3 months of extensive trials covering quality, production, sustainability and most importantly field trials (where valuable customer feedback was gathered).
We can now proudly confirm that Ecofoil has passed with flying “foil” colours and as a result Naked Wines have committed to our Ecofoil technology for the future of their voucher marketing.

Using Ecofoil has enabled Naked Wines to benefit from the following:
• A huge 35%+ reduction in overall annual production costs vs the market average for hot foiling.
• Significantly reduced production lead-times enabling them to be quicker to market, more reactive to market events and also allowing them to take advantage of last minute distribution bookings.
• A huge variety of creative options including; an unlimited palette of foil colours, the ability to apply unlimited numbers of foil colours of any one single piece of marketing and much greater flexibility in foil detail and coverage.

’Im sure there are plenty of printers who can print well. However I’m sure not many will have the ‘customer-first’ attitude and service of Crystal. They really do work together with you – double checking specifications before printing and answering any queries so quickly. We have been printing our puzzles and catalogues with Crystal for many years but this year is our first using ecofoil. It looks great and we’re looking forward to using it much more in the future. Crystal are a true partner!

We were introduced to Ecofoil in September 2019 and immediately had reservations around its claims of being a sustainable alternative to MetPol that could be processed using both conventional and UV inks. After a number of conversations to reassure us we progressed with a project using Ecofoil which involved opaque whites, Pantone washes, CMYK and aqueous coatings.

The results stunned our press room team. The material ran beautifully through our presses, we were able to run both print passes within 24hours of each (which is a huge benefit to us given we only run standard conventional sheet-fed inks) and the whole project including die cutting and converting was complete within 4 days (the same project using MetPol would have taken us weeks).

Ecofoil is truly a revolution in the foil-board market and has lived up to every single claim that it makes. We will be promoting Ecofoil to all our foil board customers and would have no hesitation in transferring all foil-board production across to Ecofoil.
