How It Works

Dimensional Printing starts by loading Dimensional Clear Dry Ink into the Fifth Imaging Unit of our Digital 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.


Dimensional Print is useful as a high-impact visual on a variety of printed pieces. Below is a brief list of the possibilities.
