How Do Colors Affect Purchase?

How Do Colors Affect Purchase? For retailers, selling is the art of persuasion. There are many factors that influence how and what consumers buy. A large part of every decision is based on visual cues, and the strongest and most persuasive is color.

  • 60% of consumers feel at ease and are more likely to purchase a product that has the word “guaranteed” associated with it

Disruptive, game-changing technology powers the Colordyne engine

Disruptive, game-changing technology powers the Colordyne engineColordyne Technologies’ digital color inkjet printers are powered by Memjet technology and offer industry-leading speed, resolution, and price performance. Capable of printing full variable color up to 1600 x 1600 dpi and at throughput speeds up to 32 inches per second, Memjet technology is a game changer. Designed to deliver high speeds at low costs, Colordyne is proud to offer the best technology to their partners!

Colordyne printers feature the Memjet Waterfall Printhead Technology which prints page wide in one pass. Memjet-powered printers can provide high-speed, variable data, color printing for localized on-demand label runs. Colordyne printers can produce a color label/impressions in seconds, and a full roll/stack of labels/impressions in minutes. When compared to other inkjet printers, our printer is 8 times faster!

Memjet Waterfall Printhead Technology™ achieves high-speed color printing at low cost by printing in a single pass- page wide for the label and business printing industry. The printhead requires minimal warm-up time and prints in one pass without scanning back and forth. While dramatically improving performance, this fixed head architecture also reduces the noise, vibration, mechanical complexity and drop firing complexity associated with traditional inkjet architectures. Memjet printheads are designed as a long-life, customer replaceable component allowing end users to keep their printers running at peak performance year after year while protecting their investment.

For maximum scalability, the size of the printhead nozzles enables extremely fine detail and font which offers a wide range of applications. Each printhead packs 70,400 nozzles into a silicon structure that delivers 1600 dpi native print quality that is more dense and cost efficient than any other leading inkjet IC designs. The ink is delivered in a waterfall on the substrate at a rate of over 700,000 million droplets per second at a size of 1.2 picoliter. This allows for less ink usage per image produced.

Memjet’s custom controller chips provide a powerful printing platform with extreme speed, and durability.

Memjet inks are water-based, four-color (CYMK) ink formulations. The inks are unique to meet the demands of high-speed drop ejection, single pass printing and to ensure reliable, high-quality color printing for the life of the printhead. Advance dye colorants have been chosen to achieve the highest image quality and reliability at high speeds. The printhead’s microscopic 1.2 picoliter ink droplets absorb into typical substrates in milliseconds, so media of all types that are printed with Memjet print heads and ink are completely dry the second they exit the print path.

This technology is a new way to print lightning fast and affordable color. What else would you expect from a print engine that fires more than 3 billion drops of ink per second with 70,400 nozzles?

To learn more about the world’s fastest and most affordable color printing and how leading enterprises are optimizing their business with the use of color, please call or visit us online today to schedule a demonstration.
