Clear Ink Advantages

Digital clear ink provides a number of unique advantages that differ from traditional processes such as lamination or UV coating:

Make your print pop! Clear ink helps colours pop, adding a stunning high gloss finish to photos and other elements.
Focus attention Draw attention to key messages by using clear ink to highlight what’s important.
Variable printing Personalize your print! The digital process used to apply clear ink allows you to add variable information and customize content to your customers.
Added protection Flood the entire page with clear ink to achieve a similar effect to lamination, adding protection to products that are prone to wear.
Fast turnarounds Clear ink is applied inline, and requires no additional machine set-up. Enjoy high speed digital printing with quick turnarounds.
