Xerox® Commemorative Edition
The challenge hasn’t changed—it’s only gotten harder. We live in an over-stimulated world, where we’re inundated with posters, social media, signage, streaming video, texts, emails and direct mail. So what is a print provider to do?
Here’s one solution: Shine through the clutter with digitally produced metallic effects at rated press speed for static and variable jobs. With the Xerox® Color 1000i Press and available specialty dry inks you can deliver true metallic silver or gold colors and tints without the cost and time involved in traditional processes.
Turn Heads. Without the Headaches. Production costs are lower thanks to the elimination of custom materials and dyes, less wasteful processes and an in-line digital workflow that reduces staff time and increases productivity. Add an extra layer of sparkle and shine to mailers, invitations, advertisements and a wide variety of variable information applications, opening up lucrative opportunities for you and your customers.
Astound Clients with Speed and Quality. As Mark Serbin of Serbin Printing in Sarasota, Florida stated, “Meeting deadlines with these presses is very easy.” The metallic and clear dry ink turnarounds for printed output match those of CMYK digital printing applications. How? Robust automation with the unique Xerox Full Width Array featuring the Automated Color Quality Suite for outstanding image quality and consistency.
Turn Up Your In-House Innovation. With the Xerox® Color 1000i Press and a wide range of coated, uncoated and specialty stock capabilities, you can add premium effects to official documents, personalized communications, menus, point-of-sale signage, packaging and image overlays on photos and logos—all in-house.
So are you ready to stand out in 2016? The Xerox® Color 1000i Press is a great place to start.
Want a sample of what the Xerox® Color 1000i Press is capable of? You’re looking at one—this edition of the Digital Hot Spot was printed on the press with metallic silver dry ink.
More noise. More clutter. More distractions. If you want to stand out in 2016 you’ll need to be radically different.

Why the Xerox® iGen® 5 Press is your ticket to growth in 2016
1. Beautiful Digital Color By loading orange, green or blue as a supplement to
CMYK, the Xerox® iGen 5 Press can match 90 percent of the PANTONE® Plus Coated Library within 3 delta E. Now you can easily hit your clients’ unique and distinctive brand colors while keeping the job digital.
2. Instant Color Matching With the press’s Gamut Extension Tool, you can quickly find
out whether a job can be accurately run in standard CMYK or if it will benefit from using a five-color workflow. Simply enter the desired PANTONE code and you’ll immediately see just how accurately that color can be hit by using a fifth color.
3. Fast Switch Muscles It only takes 30 minutes to swap out the additional fifth color
station. With practice and experience, it is easy to cut that time down to under 20 minutes.
4. Mistake-Free Productivity Delivering 25 percent more productivity than the competition,
the Xerox® iGen 5 Press automates everything from color management to system profiling to real-time streak detection. Get the quality you need—without the errors that typically come with rushed jobs.
5. Scalable Speed and Color Built on a single, configurable platform, choose the speed
point and number of color stations that best fit your print shop’s needs. If those needs change in a few years, you can easily upgrade.
The days of having to pick productivity over accuracy, speed over quality or outsourcing over in-house are in the past with the Xerox® iGen 5 Press.
Color is king in the print world. But so too is productivity. How can both reign supreme in your print environment? The Xerox® iGen 5 Press and its fifth color station give you five ways:
Get the equivalent of five extra months of production time with the iGen 5.
