Tips for Combating the Pitfalls of Reflex Blue Ink

Ask any printer and they'll tell you Reflex Blue is one of the most challenging ink colors to work with. It lends itself to poor drying, excessive marking, and low scuff resistance. The irony is it is used in so many corporate logos. Domtar recently put out some great tips for Fighting the Reflex Blues:

  • Use a spot or flood varnish to seal the ink and eliminate scuffing, fingerprinting, and bronzing in largerink areas.
  • Use "Imitation Reflex Blue: ink
  • Allow ample drying time on all projects using Reflex Blue
  • Paper can be an issue too, minimal markings occur with an uncoated sheet - if you need to print on coated, then a gloss coated sheet is your best option.
