San Antonio, TX (October 11, 2005) Gandinnovations has completed its research and development of their new white ink and clear varnish applied with the Jeti 3150 UV Flatbed at Viscom in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“We feel that Viscom was the right place to give our overseas customers a first look of our new white ink and clear varnish,” says Hary Gandy, Gandinnovation's CEO of worldwide sales.
White ink is applied under or on top of the image during the printing process and is used to give the Jeti 3150 another dimension.
White ink has been one of the big talks of 2005, and Gandinnovations feels that they can offer their customers the quality they seek to provide their end users with a superior product.
Clear varnish, used to make the colors more brilliant, is applied to the image after is printing is completed. “It can be applied onto the entire image or just certain area, highlighting what the advertiser want their customers to see,” says Gandy. “We really think our Jeti users will be able to find a use for the clear varnish with every project they complete.”
The clear varnish not only highlights an image, but offers protection from the elements offering Jeti users a cheaper alternative to lamination.
Along with the Jeti 3150 UV Flatbed, Gandinnovations showcased Jeti 5000, five meter solvent printer, and the Jeti 3318 with modular backlit camera unit used printing backlit with perfect dot placement. The Jeti 3312 dye-sub was also on hand with its direct to flag material capabilities.
