Jim Hamilton of InfoTrends discusses two print samples: a Front Row Movies mailer and a Sorori fashion catalog that were produced by Kodak customer The Lettershop Group using a Kodak S10 Imprinting System with CMYK. Both jobs were printed on 170-gsm Galarie Silk.

A discussion of these print samples is also part of a new white paper called “High-Speed Monochrome and Color Inkjet in Hybrid Configurations” that is available as a free download on the InfoTrends web site.

In this video I discuss a set of print samples from Graph Expo 2010 and explain how they relate to the following trends:

  • Formats larger than 12 x 18

  • High-speed color inkjet printing on coated paper
  • Color inkjet envelope printing

The possibilities range from simple spot color use to custom colors, coatings, and magnetic image character recognition (MICR). The table below shows a brief summary of the current state of the art. This table includes only currently available products used for document applications. Another table would need to be dedicated to adequately address products in the flexible label and packaging space. Read more »
