For the last couple of years, SixB Labels has been very excited about the capabilities of our newest print technology— color digital printing. This blog post will explain a little bit about why we have chosen the approach that we take to color digital printing, based on ideas such as color theory, and go on to detail the advantages of certain techniques and printing devices to achieve the best results — the widest possible range of complex images, vibrant colors, and extremely high definition in the printed product.
The Impact of Color Theory on Digital Printing
There are two different applications of color theory: additive and subtractive. Additive color (the color used with a computer monitor or TV screen) consists of red, green, and blue (RGB). At lower values, a mix of these colors creates varying shades of grey. At maximum intensity, all three combined colors create a white image.
