Four-colour process digital printing utilises traditional CMYK inks to produce most full-colour print jobs. The four colours – cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black) – are known as the subtractive primaries. The combination of cyan, magenta, and yellow (CMY) is capable of creating a form of black-coloured ink, but the added fourth colour (K) enables reproduction of a “true” black. The integration of a “true,” often darker black to traditional CMY, results in a more accurate representation of black prints.

Best Method of Printing?

Digital printing is the preferred method of utilising CMYK process colours. Thanks to the integration of computer software programs with digital printers, set-up time and colour alignment are drastically reduced, producing true-to-colour prints. For printing a complex, full colour design, screen printing is not a viable option. Our UK digital printing is the perfect option for your full colour, 360 degree wrap prints.

Adding More Process Colours

The addition of colours beyond CMYK is referred to as high-fidelity (hi-fi) colour printing. With more colours we’re able to produce sharper detail and extremely vibrant printed images. A common addition to the four-colour process adds light cyan and light magenta to the mix. By adding these lighter colours, the six-colour printing process can achieve photo-realistic images through improved skin-tone matching. This method is uniquely appropriate for personalised printing, which often requires one-off production of facial images.

Digital Printing Trends

With the rise of online marketplaces such as Etsy, print shops and manufacturers have been trying to penetrate the personalisation market. Consumer demand for personalised products is on the rise, not only with individual names but with photos of themselves and loved ones. We’re able to offer the highest print quality to compete in the personalisation business.
