Attention Print Industry-aligned designers and printers who want to add value to print by utilising the CMYK+ capabilities of the Irridesse Press.

The printing industry employs many great craftspeople however the general lack of marketing skills has resulted in printing becoming commoditised with declining volumes.
 
This commoditisation has extended into graphic design. Designers nowadays aren’t taught how to design for print which is a major cause of volume decline as well as the underutilisation of advanced printing technologies such as CMYK+. Add to this the explosion of the gig economy, it’s no wonder it’s become very hard for graphic designers to make a living or even build a business as they compete against $2.00 per hour unskilled designers from developing countries.

To date, the tools to help graphic designers have been very generic in nature. To thrive as a designer you need to build specialist skills hence the need to create tools that are aligned to specific printing techniques such as the Irridess Press’ CMYK+ capability. Tools that provide a practical guide to optimising the printer’s capabilities enable designers to differentiate themselves by delivering exceptional value to their clients.

We know how frustrating this is. Intertype first experienced this issue in 2004 and it has only grown worse over the years

Intertype started developing a tool kit for graphic designers in 2014 based on the Xerox 1000i that only had basic CMYK+ printing capabilities. Today the Irridess press takes the capability to a whole new level which has only gone on to exemplify the graphic design issues even further. The award-winning CMYK+ Tool Kit commenced development in 2018 and has gone on to be used by over 200 designers in the Asia Pacific region. It was created with the help of one of the most skilled printing finished artist in Australia, and arguably the World.

The Tool Kit makes it easy to create CMYK+ artwork, empowering designers to promote the features and create higher-margin volume for Irridess owners and graphic designers. The kit has a white label option for printers who want to go “all-in”.

Intertype has a fully-featured Irridesse Press which means that we know how hard it is to fully utilise its capabilities. The Irridess capabilities continue to expand and the kit will evolve to cater for this. The kit originally catered for metallic silver & gold, white and clear and has recently been upgraded to support pink.
