It's Time to Think About White Ink
Well, more accurately, short-run opaque digital white printing.
No longer the exclusive product of expensive screen printing or specialty offset press jobs, digital printing now allows for the striking use of white printing on dark solid paper.
Digital white is a separate, opaque print layer that is applied in the same print run as the full color elements. This can allow vibrant, full color images on dark or even black stocks that would otherwise be impossible to achieve. Additionally, digital white can be used to create stunning monochrome images on black or color stocks.
How can Digital White benefit your print jobs?
5 Reasons You Should Invest In Spot Varnish
Spot varnish has long been a mainstay of the offset print world.
Creating visual appeal and tactile impact with a sense of luxury and expense required, well, actual expense. Large print runs were more suited to manage per piece cost due to extra setup requirements.
Now, with increased availability of short run digital spot varnish, the technique can benefits a larger range of print projects.
A Varnish is a quick drying, liquid coating applied to a print piece. Spot Varnish is the use of varnishing on only specific parts or shapes of a printed piece. As an extra step in the printing process, spot varnish traditionally involves more cost and production time. Digital spot varnishing ameliorates these concerns by varnishing while printing, with reduced setup requirements.
