From Kodak Nexpress Dimensional Printing System and Red Fluorescing Dry Ink to MICR Dry Ink, matte and glossing techniques, the Kodak Nexpress Platform offers a number of differentiating capabilities in the market. These capabilities help users stand out from the competition and expand into new revenue opportunities.
