WHITE INK PRINTING | NYC
White Ink Printing is trickier than it sounds. Against the norm of dark ink on white paper, the reversed appearance of white ink on dark paper stock offers a memorable visual contrast. Much of what you see printed in white ink isn’t white ink at all, but a foil or acrylic stamp. This is especially true with dark or brightly-colored paper. White ink is transparent when printed over black paper, dark paper or brightly-colored paper. In order to get white ink to be visible on black paper, dark paper or bright-colored paper, the white ink must be applied multiple times, which typically results in an unsightly white ink mess. A white foil stamp is the solution – it mimics the look of white ink printing: without the ink mess, and with excellent white opacity. Light ink printing & Foil Stamping looks best on dark and bright-colored papers – black or dark blue paper backgrounds. The look of white ink printing makes a logo pop, & gives a sense of visual depth to printed business cards, invitations and anywhere one might want to invert an assumed printing standard. This being New York City, black business cards continue to be a staple in-demand choice for business and personal stationery. We offer the look of white ink right here in the ever-fashionable Garment District in Midtown Manhattan.
