Using Bellissima, high quality prints equivalent to 350 to 450 lpi are produced with unrivalled image reproduction and no colour shifts on mis-registration. Utilising fixed palette inks the screening delivers smooth flat tints and moiré free prints. Vignettes fade smoothly to nothing enabled by printed highlight dots as low as 1.0% and shadow dots up to 99.5%.
Working optimally at 4000 dpi the patented screening incorporates features including 100% solid surface patterning options and solid object protection. Printing press issues including bounce, barring and slur are all reduced significantly and in some cases eliminated. Bellissima DMS also delivers on ink savings, which can be augmented by GCR based software, improves the efficiency of the press room, and utilises existing printing press equipment.
