New Metallic Ink Printing Amplifies CMYK Tints and Imagery

The Xerox Iridesse Production Press is a powerful printing choice as it pairs automated, agile digital production with the ability to create superior image quality and jaw dropping print embellishments. This production press unleashes the full potential of your print project while also producing eye-catching brilliant results.

Iridesse also grows your “wow factor” per page by combining compelling four color imagery with up to two specialty dry inks in-line (all in a single pass). Consumers will find it hard to resist your printed materials thanks to the pairing of high-quality graphic design and colorful results.  

New Printer Creates Stunning Image Quality For Customer

One of the items that is unique to Xerox is Ultra HD Resolution that produces offset results such as halftone images, smooth tints and gradients that many competitors do not have the print technology to match.

When we use a phrase like “new, small particle high definition emulsion aggregate or HDEA toner that has a smooth low gloss appearance that optimizes yield”, it simply means you get better results while spending less money.  The belt fuser is able to ensure exceptional image quality across a range of coated, uncoated and textured media all the way up to 400 grams per square meter.  The printed sheets are then cooled and decurled so they will be ready when you choose either 2-sided imaging or finishing. 

Xerox Iredesse Makes Specialty Embellishments On Print Product Cheaper

While the four color quality means your printed materials will have a high-quality look, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what Iredesse can do. It redefines digital printing thanks to Color FLX Technology which allows us to layer CMYK with up to two specialty dry inks (including true metallic Silver or Gold, White or Clear). The layering process happens in a single productive pass that maintains quality reproduction from color to color for the printed results you desire.

Specialty dry inks that are placed in the underlay station provide a base that enhances CMYK tints and imagery.  Metallic ink printing underlays can create a rainbow of iridescent effects while white underlays expand the available applications to include films, colored, and other specialty media choices.  Metallic, white or clear overlays are able to create spot embellishment effects for graphics including logos and patterns. 

Iridesse has the capability for short run, quick turn, high value applications which translates to fewer passes for each print run. In turn, this saves you time and money while still producing an amazing product. 

Improve the Look of These Print Products With New Print Technology

There are multiple applications our new printer can handle that elevate the look of your print products using metallic underlays to create stunning iridescent effects.  You can also save on the cost of your print campaign with shorter and more productive runtimes.  Some of the print projects that are ideal for this printer include:
