Iridescence – Adjective – Showing luminous colours that seem to change when seen from different angles.
Originating in the late 18th century from the Latin ‘iris’ or ‘irid’ for ‘rainbow’, iridescence is a concept we’re all familiar with. For you it might relate to peacock feathers, bubbles, CDs (anybody remember those?), sea shells or minerals – just a starter for ten. Now, those amazing, high-sheen effects can be achieved in all their glory on the Xerox Iridesse Production Press in a more practical way than ever before.
The recent launch of the Iridesse brings new opportunities to bring a stunning iridescence and pearlescence to print, enabling you to provide more creative products with a beautiful high shine and high flop index value. The smallest HD EA toner particle currently on the market – just seven microns – allows incredible fine details, highlights and shadows to be realised, with an enormously enviable gloss.
The game-changing Iridesse Production Press is also the first device in the industry to offer a six station print-engine operating inline on a single pass. You have the efficiency and flexibility to print CMYK and two from a selection of Speciality Dry Inks (gold, silver and clear) at the same time. The possibilities for print are cutting-edge embellishments, dynamic combinations, and alluring metallics in a format that still makes short-run jobs affordable and profitable.
From postcards to banners, high-value, high-end and high-quality print is more practical than ever, even on short runs. Colour changes are cut to just twenty minutes, and an EZ press check means a set-up time of less than ten minutes. A fantastic 1200 dpi RIP resolution and 2400 dpi print resolution on a wide variety of coated and uncoated stocks and a speed of 120 page/minute just add to the benefits of the new Press.
The Iridesse has it all – ease of use, quality, six colours in a single pass.
