Benefits of extended gamut printing

Compared with conventional spot color printing, extended gamut printing with Equinox is a path to high quality printing with a significant reduction of production costs. The benefits?

  • Reduced press downtime
  • Reduced wash-ups on the press
  • Higher productivity in the press room
  • Reduced ink stock


Our goal was to limit press downtime caused by color changes. By using the same set of inks for all print jobs, expanded gamut printing eliminates the need for wash-ups when switching jobs and it reduces make-ready times.

About extended gamut printing

Shorter print runs squeeze your margins and you need to meet these challenges in a time and cost effective way.

Extended gamut printing is one of the ways to do this. It allows you to print faster with superb quality while lowering your printing costs.


It is a major innovation being able to print PANTONE colors with just seven inks. Thanks to Equinox we can now offer higher quality, more saleable print with less color differentiation. We have boosted our color space and regularly use extended gamut printing. We are also saving an average of 25% in inks.
