Mimaki USA has introduced silver ink for its ES3 ink portfolio of eco-solvent inks for the JV33 and CJV30 Series of large format printers and ES3 white ink that is designed for printing on transparent and colored substrates. Benefits of the new silver ink include production of higher-valued print products as well as metallic effects, such as gold or bronze as well as other color shades. Mimaki's existing solvent printers such as the JV33 and CJV30 Series are compatible with the new silver ink. It is not necessary to acquire additional devices or equipment. Printing with silver ink requires no special knowledge or technical skills. Users choose the appropriate color from the metallic color library in Raster Link Pro5 and print their jobs using silver ink. In addition, Raster Link Pro5 enables output of all shades of metallic colors by calling up the feature chart for silver ink. Users can also devise their own or the appropriate customers’ colors and metallic shades.
