What's Special About the 8-Color Printer?, Jessup, Maryland

Laser Line has been supplying top-of-the-line printer service and more to businesses and individuals in the Maryland, Washington D.C., and Northern Virginia areas since 1989. Whether their customers are family businesses or Fortune 500 enterprises, they offer everything from repair work on office copiers to the highest quality print jobs available. In the case of the latter, there's an abundance of hype surrounding the power of 8-color printers, so Laser Line is here to break it down and highlight pros and cons of these printing systems.

Most home printers deal in four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black). 6-Color printers take those base colors and add in two diluted (light) colors. Add two more on top of that and you have an 8-color printing system that can produce images of an even higher quality. You can see the difference when you compare 4- and 6-color printer results to the output of an 8-color printer. Other advantages include increased resolution with finer details, smoother gradient transitions, vivid and crisp colors, and reduced graininess.

8-color printer systems aren't without their disadvantages, however. 8-color printers have a higher ink consumption than 4- and 6- color printers. 8-color printers also take a long time to print images since you’re producing high-quality images.
