What is the Guide?

Konica Minolta's Extreme Digital Designer's Guide inspires and challenges designers to think outside the box when designing for digital.  The Guide showcases a range of digital printing applications, including texturized foil and varnish printing, various paper stock and substrate printing options, embossed labels and invitations, authenticated holographic digital printing, banner production, and more. The Extreme Digital Designer's Guide demonstrates what is possible with Konica Minolta's line of digital printers.

You have to see - and feel it - to believe it.

Our Production Partners

See For Yourself

The pieces included in the Designer's Guide have been produced on Konica Minolta's line of production and industrial printing devices, including finished material from its AccurioPress series, its MGI JETVarnish series, and the KM-1 Inkjet press. See the adjacent video for a demonstration of how the Guide was produced, and see below for some of the specific applications that are highlighted in the Guide.

"There are three reactions to a piece of design -  yes, no, and WOW!"
Milton Glaser

Digital Spot Varnish

Spot varnish adds depth and texture to your printed images through the use of clear ink to create raised effects. Thanks to digital advancements, spot varnish applications no longer require the expensive and time-consuming process of creating plates. Designing for one-off varnish jobs is now a viable option.

See how easy Konica Minolta's JETVarnish series of industrial printers make varnish application in the Designer's Guide.

Digital Foil Stamping

Foil stamping adds a touch of luxury to your design through the application of coloured aluminum and tin foils to simulate a metallic effect. Today, applying foil is easier than ever thanks to digital printers eliminating the need for expensive plates, instead relying on digital files.

Konica Minolta's JETVarnish series with the inline iFoil module makes foil application simple, cost-effective and seamless.

Substrate Flexibility

Incredible designs should never be confined to standard letter-size paper. Beautiful design can extend to banner, envelope, label and package printing - all possible through the use of digital print technology. Push the boundaries of design by printing across various media.
