Four Developments in the Commercial Print Industry for 2020
From new business-grade Apps and super-affordable ‘White plus CMY’ printers at one end, to the rising dominance of high-fusion inkjet at the other, 2020 has been a remarkable year for Xerox!
CMYK+ extends further with fluorescent pinks
Specialty printing is one of the fastest growing digital segments, and – just in time for Valentine’s Day – Xerox have announced they’ve extended their range of adaptive CMYK+ to include fluorescent PINK.
Available for the new PrimeLink C9065 and throughout the range, including the Iridesse and Versant 180 and 280 digital presses, this is sure to be a winner for the specialist printer.
Extend your Xerox Versant into an eleven colour press
Using Xerox’s Adaptive CMYK+ kit for the Xerox Versant® or Primelink® printers and graphic designers alike can experience the benefits of a hugely extended colour palette, enabling them to use fluorescent cyan, magenta and yellow, and pink.
With seven specialty colours, the kit transforms a four-colour Xerox Versant 180 Press into an 11-colour Beyond CMYK press capable of creating more than one million colour hues.
We’ve created a bright green that is eye-popping, but you can also mix fluorescent yellow with cyan to get a new shade of green,”
Xerox scientist Yat-Ming Wong.
