Due to the nature of digital printing – some colours will band. Dark colours, blues and greys often have issues causing banding. Banding does not occur in Premium Offset printing.
Banding is an inconsistency in the printing that causes streaks (or lines / bands) to appear through the print in lighter and darker tones. Banding is an issue that cannot be avoided by any Digital Output printing, even with the latest technology that Jukebox Print uses.
Designs that have large areas of solid colour can have this issue. There are a few ways we can suggest to avoid this issue:
- Modifying the design – reduce or remove the size or amount of solid colour
- Upgrading to Premium Offset output – contact our Customer Service team to arrange this
