Iridescent Printing

Hot Ink brings you the first Xerox ‘Iridesse’ in Cape Town, capable of incredible iridescent print effects. The metallic gold and silver can now be layed down either underneath or over your cmyk colours in varying opacities, creating a wide variety of results that can be as wild and shiny or as sleek and subtle as your artwork requires.

Further effects can be produced when combining our clear varnish with metallic gold and silver. The addition of varnish has a dual effect: appearing glossy when applied on top of CMYK, but having a dulling effect when printed over metallics, resulting in unique shifts of light as you move your paper.

To stand out from the rest, your printing needs to be unique and eye-catching and it has been forecast that embellished printing is set to grow by 27% between 2015 and 2020. Our iridescent effects are easy to create and affordable to apply, plus we have handy guidelines available to help you with setting up. So get started now and create some digital alchemy of your own with this luxury finish exclusive to Hot Ink.
