Foiling’s Next Frontier: Sleeking

Foiling can create the perfect finishing touch, but it’s not always practical – or affordable — for short run projects. Until now. Working in combination with any HP Indigo press, sleeking is a cost-effective digital technique that designers can utilize for classic foil applications. Not only does it open up a new world of possibilities, but it lets designers overprint foils to create a burst of unexpected color that is guaranteed to impress.
Join us on July 19th as printing and design experts Chris Buoni and Erika Bartos share inspirational examples of sleeking at its finest. You’ll see how sleeking can be used in a classic silver or gold foil way to bring type or patterns to life; a metalized background, to enhance your images; or a dramatic holographic impression to create print projects that will impress the pickiest clients.
Chris Buoni is the VP of New Business Development for Perfect Communications, where he has spent 24 years with a primary focus on print. Currently, Chris oversees the sales and marketing of all digital and print products for Perfect Communications. Chris has been active in AIGA Philadelphia for eight years, serving on the board as Partnership and Membership Director. Although not a designer, Chris is passionate about design and dedicated to empowering the design community to recognize its full potential. Chris also serves his local community of Medford Township, NJ, as an elected official on the town council, where he served as Mayor for 2014.
Erika Bartos is the founder and partner of Hooray Design® based out of Ontario, Canada. With a good number of years of experience in design and print combined, she brings a realistic knowledge of how design translates to a final printed piece. Her perspective remains, “designing is a privilege and the details matter—start to finish.” When not on the job she relishes time with her family, enjoying real conversation, getting lost in time while gardening, organizing pretty much anything, and taking in the sincerity of culture and history anywhere she finds herself.
