5th COLOR PRINTING
CMYK is only four colors. Why stop there?
Accuprint's 5th color digital printing allows for an incredibly expanded color gamut, amazing neon and neon blend colors, clear accent, white printing and more.
Give your business an elegant and upscale feel at a lower cost than you’d expect. Choose clear print from our 5th Color enhancements for a high-end gloss finish on product images, photos and logos. From business cards to menus, fashion catalogs to event programs, clear enhancements deliver a sense of sophistication that reflects the high quality your brand stands for. This clear print creates an amazing, almost holographic ghost look when printed in isolation on black, or other dark stocks.
Take your brand materials beyond basic. White printing opens up a ton of creative opportunities that will help your business be seen. Use it as a base layer to print on colored media and retain full color image accuracy. That means photos, graphics and logos remain vibrant and stay on-brand. Apply it as a single color to darker media for a striking contrast. It can even be used to simulate metallic effects. If you’re in event marketing, retail, beauty or hospitality, you’ll be amazed at what white printing can bring to your designs.
Next time you’re creating marketing materials think about adding neon pink embellishment to your design. This vivid 5th color adds unmissable pop — drawing the eye to fundraising materials, direct mail, retail displays, seasonal specials, fashion catalogs and packaging. But it's not just for the pink! Neon pink can also be blended with CMYK to create outrageous oranges and rich purples to match more brand colors digitally. Explore the possibilities, benefit from the impact and ask us how you can expand your creativity by expanding your overall color gamut.
Up the energy of your printed materials. Go bold and bright with neon yellow. It’s affordable, even for personalized, short-run and on-demand printing jobs. Neon yellow is perfect for making an immediate visual impact and creating a hierarchy of messaging.

Neon yellow enhancement can also be blended with CMYK to create a wider range of greens and intense yellows.

Using Neon Pink and Neon Yellow in color blends can create visually stunning colors not achievable in standard CMYK color gamuts. We have printed color charts available and are happy to send them to you at no charge. Making them available as a download would be meaningless as they need to be printed with the neon 5th colors to properly show the resulting color.
