"What a great experience. The service and facilities are second to none.
It was great to spend the day at Fuse and develop our concepts with the design team. Nowhere else have we been able to turn around finished samples so quickly and see so many variations with foil and varnish.
- Truly impressive "

"At Scodix we get the chance to work with many customers around the World and now more and more in packaging so working together with The Wilkins Group made a lot of sense. Since the start of the project in 2016 it was clear to us that Wilkins had taken their decision to go into digital very seriously. For starters they are one of only a few of the hundreds of Scodix customers World wide that branded their new product portfolio and gave it a specific identity. This identity was carried through into the Buzz Zone which was a very smart idea. If there’s one aspect though that surprised the Scodix team even more than that, was the creativity and just how smartly Fuse use the Scodix technology in their Folding Carton designs, some truly amazing new pieces have been created and we can certainly say like nothing else we have ever seen, we’ll probably have to ban them from entering the Scodix annual design competition in order to avoid a whitewash !"
