It continues with Prägo patrices.

For more than 40 years, Prägo has been supplying its customers worldwide with counter die products for blind embossing and relief foil hot stamping.

Now the company has changed its owner: TCL-Solutions took over the business on 1 March. "We received the information that the patrix manufacturer wanted to close its doors from one of our customers in France," describes Managing Director Gerd Carl. "Prego patrices are characterised by excellent contour sharpness and register accuracy as well as short production times. "The production will take place at our new, larger location in Mülheim an der Ruhr," says Carl, a trained letterpress printer.
With this decision, TCL-Solutions is expanding its portfolio and consolidating its position as a solution provider for special applications.


TCL-Solutions GmbH has established itself as a provider of products and services in waterless offset printing. In addition, the company sells LED standard lights for metamerism-free light that it has developed and manufactures itself.
With the continuation of Prägo, TCL is responding to the demand of many customers for products for the production of print enhancements.
