CMSpot6™

Unlimited Design Possibilities with Industry Leading Durability

Agencies looking to create unique community identity by including colorful images on their street name and other specialty signs have had to limit their creativity to standard highway colors, or accept the compromise of the shorter life of process colors. This until now.

Avery Dennison's CMSpot6 is the latest revolutionary development in traffic sign digital printing that eliminates design and durability compromises - creating unlimited design possibilities. And TrafficJet™ with CMSpot6 is the only industry printer with this combination of durable spot and process colors. The result - a 37% larger color gamut and industry-leading durability. Up to 12 years on standard highway colors, and 10 years on process colors1.

The Old Way

 

 

 

 

 

Traditional ink configuration allowed for CMYK cartridges plus four traffic spot colors. Users would have to choose which four of the six traffic colors they wanted to use for traffic sign printing. This process also limited the warranty of the process colors to just 3-7 years. 

Remove, Replace, Rethink Possibilities

 

 

 

 

What if there was a way to better capitalize on the durability of TrafficJet spot yellow and black by actually using them in place of the Y and K in a traditional CMYK ink set?

The New Way

 

 

 

CMSpot6 eliminates the Y and K colors from a CMYK ink set, and replaces them with spot yellow and black with dual roles to print specification-compliant traffic signs, and blends them with cyan and magenta for custom colored images. In addition, by opening up two more ink bays, all six highway spot colors can be loaded with cyan and magenta for unlimited design and print possibilities.
