C.J. Graphics became the first company in North America to purchase a Scodix Ultra Pro with Scodix Foil. News of the purchase comes a week after the Toronto printing company announced its Canada-first installation of a new Highcon Euclid II+ system.

On September 10, the C.J. Group of Companies, which controls C.J. Graphics, also announced its acquisition of Toronto-based SBC Media, one of Canada’s leading sports lifestyle media companies.

Launched this week at Graph Expo, Scodix Foil is an inline digital foiling system supporting the Scodix Ultra Pro enhancement press. Scodix Foil is designed for producing cost-effective foil with run lengths from one up to 10,000. Most printing projects, such as packaging, brochures, business cards, invitations and book covers, can be enhanced via the Scodix Ultra Pro system.


The C.J. Group of Companies’ acquisition of SBC Media includes six magazines, two annual guides and all related websites, social media platforms and assets, which will operate under the C.J. Oyster Publishing division of the C.J. Group. Former printing industry journalist Filomena Tamburri joined C.J. Oyster Publishing several weeks ago as Group Publisher.

The SBC titles and brands moving to the C.J. Group umbrella include: Snowboard Canada, SBC Skateboard, SBC Skier, SBC Wakeboard, SBC Business, SBC Ski & Snowboard Resort Guide (annual), Snowboard Canada Women’s (annual), and SBC Surf.

“SBC is woven into the fabric of skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, wakeboarding and action sports across Canada. Our vision and leadership will ensure athletes, content producers and brands continue to have a prestigious national, multi-media platform to showcase their sports, lifestyles and products,” said Jay Mandarino, CEO and President of the C.J. Group of Companies. “We are very excited by the positive support we’ve received from the action sports industry and community about our acquisition.”
