Double Hit Black & White
Pin sharp lines, flowing colour gradients and outstanding image quality all whilst increasing productivity – this is what differentiates digital label printing from other technologies.
In order to achieve high-quality results when printing brilliant white and deep black, we have added the option of printing these two colours twice. In technical terms this process is called “double hit” – black or white inks are applied twice to increase the opacity and the richness of the print result. Thanks to 100 % accuracy of digital print registrations, we’re able to guarantee a brilliant print result with double ink application!
How to Apply the Double Hit Function
The double hit option is a premium function which can be added to your account after requesting it with our customer service team.
Following successful activation, you will be able to choose from the following “Double Hit” options in your personalised online calculator:
Adapting Your Label Artwork
Double Hit Black
All areas within the label artwork that are set up as 100% “K” will be printed using a double hit of black.
Double Hit HPI-White
All areas within the label artwork that are set up as 100% HPI-White will be printed with a double hit. Please note that white ink must be set up as a spot colour and labelled as “HPI-White” within your label artwork.
