When you want your Colours to pop off specialty coloured stock like brown earth looking Kraft stock, and / or you want to include white elements in your design, our specialty white ink option will help achieve the look you're after.
One of our all time favorite specialty ink colour options which is commonly requested is the White ink printing process.
Although It’s not a colour, it’s a statement!
White Ink on say black or kraft colour card stock adds an embellishment that’s guaranteed to catch all the right attention.
While we refer to white ink as a fifth colour, according to scientific definitions it is not a colour, but for our purposes of printing and keeping it simple it is a colour and is in addition to the four CMYK standard colours which are Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black.
That said, White ink is actually quite special. Adding white ink to your prints specially for black stocks or kraft can level up your prints to make them look exceptionally more elegant than prints without the white ink.
Including white ink to your CMYK printing process will result in more vibrant colours and make your artwork and designs pop. These simple elements can boost your prints for aesthetic value and quality. This process is not easy, but it is worth the effort to produce high definition colours for prints.
Achieving the perfect colour schemes includes a cycle of pressing a few layers of the white ink to create the appropriate opacity. This is specially used for Kraft paper since it is usually has a solid and strong colour that sometimes can cause the artwork or designs to appear faded or cloudy. If you check at the bottom, you’ll see the big difference that White ink can do for Kraft card stocks.
There are so many ways to utilize White ink, if you play around with it enough it could make a big difference in your printing quality and create a bigger impact for your presentations and offline marketing solutions.
