Abstract

Disclosed are single pass custom color liquid ink development processes wherein tow or more liquid colored inks are applied simultaneously, in proper predetermined relative amounts, to provide custom or customer specified color images. The processes comprise, for example, providing a liquid development apparatus with at least one liquid developer housing containing a liquid developer comprised of at least two different colored inks that are premixed at a desired or preselected concentration ratio; and developing a latent image with the premixed liquid developer to afford custom colored developed images. The liquid development apparatus optionally has an intermediate transfer member. single pass development with the premixed or blended custom colored inks provides for high custom color image quality, registration, and fidelity.

Disclosed is a custom color liquid ink development process wherein two or more liquid colored inks are used, in proper predetermined relative amounts, to provide custom or customer specified color images. Two or more individual inks are applied simultaneously to the image receiving element (photoreceptor or other) by separate applicators prior to passing through a single developmentJmetering station. This assumes a cyclic architecture in which one of a set of multiple ink applicators is used to flood the...
