The difference you can see and feel

Unmatched digital technology only available from KODAK NEXPRESS Digital Production Color Presses, Dimensional Printing gives specified text and images a raised or 3D effect that can help communications stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Dimensional Printing takes place inline, maintaining press productivity while creating high-impact results that grab a reader’s attention.

How It Works

Dimensional Printing starts by loading KODAK NEXPRESS Dimensional Clear Dry Ink into the Fifth Imaging Unit of a NexPress Press.  Dimensional Clear Dry Ink is a new dry ink that creates a clear “raised” layer on top of a page element after fusing. It can be used to enhance graphics, text, or a full color image.

The overall tactile effect is similar to thermography, but with a greater degree of control—Dimensional Printing can be set to produce variable heights, so you can more closely mimic the texture of a specific image. And unlike thermography, which can only be applied to ink, Dimensional Clear Dry Ink does not require ink or an image to adhere to the substrate.

Good for your business, better for the planet

Like all KODAK NEXPRESS Fifth Imaging Unit Solutions, Dimensional Printing creates prints that are recyclable. Dimensional Printing does not require any special de-inking and uses no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) so you can produce prints that drive more profit per page and is still safe for our environment.
