Add Stand Out Finishing Touches using Gold and Silver Texture Effects and Fluorescent Ink
Compatible with a number of Canon printers3, gold and silver texture effects can be used to enhance the design, thanks to newly developed image processing technology.When printing with the imagePROGRAF GP Series4, the Vivid mode in the application can be adjusted in three levels to enhance the brightness and vibrancy of the overall output. This is made possible by the “Radiant Infusion" technology, in which fluorescent pink ink layers with other inks on the paper.
