Much of production color digital document printing has been process color only, where everything is reproduced with cyan, magenta, yellow, and black inks or toners. This is changing. In addition to the work of early digital print pioneers whose devices printed a fifth, sixth, or even seventh color, there has been a dramatic market expansion over the past few years characterized by digital devices with special effect enhancement capabilities. This has been occurring not only with devices supporting more than process color in-line, but also with a new class of off-line devices (mostly leveraging UV inkjet technologies) that produce a range of innovative dimensional, foil, and other effects. InfoTrends’ Beyond CMYK: The Use of Special Effects in Digital Printing provides both research and market sizing to help demonstrate the impact of this trend.
