Xerox® White Dry Ink

Xerox White Dry Ink plays multiple roles in the printing process:

It enables white to be printed on colored substrates — sitting atop either non-white media or CMYK-printed images.It can provide a bright white base coat for optimizing CMYK vibrancy and enabling variable information printing on colored surfaces.It can broaden the range of non-white substrates that can be used for invitations, menus and various marketing pieces — such as direct mail, postcards, business cards and posters — often to striking effect.And when printed in percentages rather than full coverage, white ink can create frost or translucent effects.
