Vivid Laminating Technologies helping to achieve XPD’s vision.


Established back in 2012, Leamington Spa based XPD Print specialise in providing digital printing across a broad spectrum of products. They also offer a wide variety of finishing services. Supported by their Matrix-530p and their VeloBlade, they provide an impressive range of foiling, spot-UV effects, lamination, personalisation, packaging, kiss-cut labels, POS and much more.

Discussing combining their Matrix and VeloBlade, Colin told us, “We’re able to produce an array of different types of packaging, many of which are soft touch laminated and foiled. The combination of the Matrix and VeloBlade enables us to efficiently produce unique and interesting products with relative ease. We’ve even started producing POS and are taking die-cutting orders from local printers”.


With the vision of bringing more work in-house, expanding the services they offer as well as reducing costs and carbon footprint, XPD thought the VeloBlade to be the ideal system to help them achieve these aims. Colin said “the VeloBlade has given us the platform to grow the business. Extending our services has enabled us to attract many new clients who require packaging and POS. The fact we can offer these sought-after services in-house, ensures we’re in complete control of customer experience from start to finish as we’re not reliant on outsourcing to fulfil orders”.

Since introducing the VeloBlade, XPD have seen an increase in orders and an improvement in their service. Colin Jones, Director at XPD said “the VeloBlade allows us to offer many additional products and services to our clients. It has meant we have been able to keep more services in-house so we’re more in control of deadlines and we have been inundated with work from across the UK”.

When discussing their experience with Vivid and why they chose the VeloBlade, Colin had nothing but positive things to say; “Vivid have been very supportive of us. We needed to match the high quality of existing products and we found that compared to similar devices the VeloBlade’s output is best in class. The service and response we have received from Vivid has been exemplary, they’re great to do business with”.
