Kluge is the most versatile small die-cutter/foil stamper on the market today. It’s easy to see why most finishing shops have at least one Kluge. The versatility and ease of use makes it a true work horse.
JohnHenry Ruggieri, SunDance
Founded in innovation and the highest quality products, Kluge is a brand with which our company can resonate. When deciding to purchase a folder-gluer, we wanted something that was not only functional, but had the intricacies needed to provide our clients with premium and varied products. By combining our current print technology with the added capabilities of this folder-gluer, we believe we can revolutionize the packaging market for small to medium-sized businesses.
Ryan Cooper, DMS Color
Kluge offers a superior product for its market and KC [Kluge’s product design and technical support manager] did an excellent job training our operators and getting Linemark ready for profitable production. We’re making money with our Kluge.
Steve Bearden, Linemark
The quality and ease of use of our new ApexFoil machine, along with the sale, installation and support of the Kluge team, especially Kenneth ‘K.C.’ Chapin, has exceeded our expectations.
Brad Phinny, Slate Group
The addition of a third Kluge press in January, has allowed us increased output, flexibility and machine dependability, as we add those extra’s to our product. The purchase of a remanufactured machine was an easy decision knowing Kluge’s proven value.”
Mike Bognar, Leanin' Tree
We were familiar with Kluge and the quality of their presses so when we needed more production capacity, we looked for another Kluge. Kluge provided excellent technical service at installation and they also repaired our older press with impressive skill and expertise. The adjustable impression feature has been a great time saver for make-readies. We utilize our Kluges every day and we look forward to our continuing partnership with Kluge for many years to come.
Larry Karr, Karr Graphics
It was tempting to buy from someone else but we didn’t want to take a chance on buying junk. So we researched and we heard from other people that Kluge did it right. Now that it has been installed, we’re impressed with the quality of the machine and the technical support. I’m confident that this press will run well for many years and Kluge will be there to support us.
Craig Chrisman, Prestar Packaging
Finishing techniques such as foil stamping, embossing, die-cutting and laminating add value to any printed piece. Used individually or in combination, these techniques transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. I’m confident with the addition of this press and under the leadership of Mike Reynolds and his 35 years of experience in the print finishing industry, Eckhart will successfully expand our print finishing division, increase our service offerings and provide additional efficiencies to customers.
Chris Eckhart, Eckhart & Company
During the Kluge EHD demonstration at Drupa 2016, it became totally compelling for us to invest in this machine based on its versatility and the quality of product it could produce. Even though it would still require a skilled operator, it was clearly the purchase to make as quality is something on which we will not compromise. The addition of the Kluge has not only allowed supplementary processes such as the embossing of thick board, but because of the extra impression pressure available, it has had a positive effect on the end quality of the product.
Charlie Anderson, C&D Print Media
We believe that technology and the right equipment is key to the continued success of YPS and we have made a number of key purchases recently. We first came across Kluge at Drupa 2016 when we were seeking out die-cutting and foiling options. Having not previously been familiar with their products, we were very impressed with the foiling and embossing on the Kluge, which was far superior to anything we had seen before. The Kluge adds perfectly to our internal finishing capabilities and will allow us to both foil and die-cut in-house, thereby keeping control of time critical jobs.
Steven Brown, Your Print Solution
We had only vaguely heard of Kluge before that [trade] show but, having got to know them, we find their products and service second to none. Indeed, their OmniFold 3000 is so fast and easy to use it has allowed us to reduce our prices and that is already attracting new clients who hitherto hadn’t considered us for this type of work.
Matt Burgess, Packaids
Our reason for buying the Kluge was to bring our die-cutting in house and to be able to have more control over turnaround on embossing and foil stamping. We see short run special print effects as an important niche growth sector over the coming years, allowing brand owners to differentiate themselves and their products. The Kluge EHF will allow us to serve this requirement quickly and efficiently.”
Henry Luce, Stormpress
We always want to have the best press and Kluge is the #1 name in the foil stamping, embossing and die-cutting industry. For that reason, the Kluge was always on our want list, then finally it became a need. The EHF is a great machine and it makes life extremely easy. We no longer have the frustration of working with other people’s timelines in sending the work out and our operator is pleased. We are happy to be in partnership with Kluge.
Mike Morgan, Mele Printing
We were looking at getting into the larger format die-cutting and the market was right to make the move now. The EHG has many advantages – the ability to run jobs multiple up is good and the adjustable impression feature makes make-ready easy and it saves time. Being a diecutter, what I like most about Kluge is the registration. Kluge has the best registration on the market. It can hold it perfect. I’d recommend any shop to go with Kluges.
Scott Staples, Madison Bindery
When we went through the process of identifying what equipment to purchase, our primary consideration was quality. We believed that was most important in meeting the demands of our customers. I believe Kluge is one of very few companies who is committed to one of the core values that my company has, “done right the first time.” During my 33 years in the business I’ve seen a lot of “get by” purchases, we didn’t want to be a part of one of those. Working with Kluge has been a first class experience.
Kevin Williams, Williams Printing
The OmniFold plays a big part in our plan to service the growing folding carton market. Our customers have motivated us to grow in this area by offering crash-lock bottom boxes, tuck bottom boxes, tape application, and sophisticated folding and gluing applications, as well as faster production of pocket folders and mailers. We are very pleased with our OmniFold and we look forward to providing our customers that “one-stop-shop” experience well into the future.
Todd Pemberton, C&D Printing
We keep at least three of our Kluges busy every day, sometimes all five. The 14×22 EHD is ideal for feeding and foil stamping pre-diecut folding cartons. It also allows us to die-cut jobs without nicking so nothing has to be sanded, the product goes direct into the box. The ease of feeding and make-ready make it a good choice for our small quantity, short runs that would be too time consuming on a larger press.
Patrick Choquet, Gravure Choquet
This isn’t our first Kluge, but it is the first one we’ve purchased directly from Kluge. The after sales support has been terrific. We’ve never had it that good.
Jim McMullen, Champ Printing Company
“The Kluge UniFold automatic folder gluer is a solid machine. Our previous folder gluer (not manufactured by Kluge) only ‘just about’ did its job, and was reaching the end of its life. We wanted a fresh machine that would be easy to operate and help us expand further into the folding and gluing market. For us, the UniFold folder gluer seemed the only way to go, its modular construction makes the machine easy to configure for many different folding and gluing applications. Since its installation, the Kluge folder gluer has proved that our choice was the right one. With user-friendly features and speedy make-ready times, the machine has a very quick learning curve as well as multi-functionality, making it our ticket into the converting industry. Needless to say, we are very pleased with our UniFold folder gluer and are enthused to have this equipment as a part of our print shop.”
