Acuity Select 20 Series

The Acuity Select 20 series features up to eight color channels, including options to run white, varnish and now light inks making it an affordable solution for a number of creative print applications. The versatility of printing high quality, 1200 dpi or greater graphics on rigid, flexible and even roll media gives printers new, additional opportunities to expand their print capabilities…and ultimately their business. In addition to the standard CMYK ink set, the Acuity Select offers unprecedented color control with these expansion options:

  • White + Varnish – Adding these two ink channels allows for printing on a range on non-white substrates and adds a spot or flood coat varnish effect in a single pass.
  • White + White – Adding two white ink channels improve the density of white in a single pass, which is ideal for backlit applications.
  • Additional Cyan + Magenta – Adding these two ink channels boosts the overall print speed of the press making it the most productive configuration.
  • Light Cyan + Light Magenta – Adding these two ink channels enhances the print quality for fine art quality printing.

Simon Nussbaum, Owner of Image360 in Elgin, IL, discusses why the Acuity Select 26 has been a great addition to his business.
