The 2024 Print Embellishment Conference, sponsored by the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA), PostPress Magazine and Amplify Print, will be held April 9-11 at the Delta Hotels Dallas Southlake in Dallas, Texas.

Panel members Rod Franson, Carlson Print; Tim Cain, Breit Technologies; and Chris Hogge, Harris & Bruno, will share their experiences with UV and UV LED curing technologies for print and print embellishment applications.

The discussion will include applications in which UV curing technologies are utilized; the advantages and disadvantages for print embellishment; and its growth in offset, flexo and digital print, as well as with special embellishment technologies, such as cold foil transfer, Cast & Cure, specialty UV coatings, and digital inkjet foils and coatings.
