Designing for Metallic Inks with the Xerox® Iridesse

Welcome to more Visual Wow! Most print designers we know dream of working on a project that involves specialty effects including metallic dry inks. That’s why we’re excited to announce the installation of our new JP Graphics Xerox® Iridesse Production Press.

Varnishes and foiling are two popular examples of eye-catching finishes that can be applied by industrial printing companies, but the added cost and time can make these projects quite a rarity. The Xerox® Iridesse Production Press changes that. With this press, you can combine stunning four-color imagery with up to two Specialty Dry Inks – including a choice of metallic Xerox Silver Dry Ink, Xerox Gold Dry Ink, or Xerox Clear Dry Inks – in a single pass, all without sacrificing digital printing benefits such as economical short runs and personalized printing.

The Iridesse lets designers create applications with spot colors, metallic and mixed metallic gradients, and specialty enhancements. Gold and silver dry metallic inks can be used on their own or layered under or over CMYK to create unique iridescent palettes. A layer of clear dry ink can be added for an extra touch of dimension or texture. Now you can really add some bling to your printed materials.
