UV Flatbed Printing
What is “UV Flat Bed Printing”?
This is a relatively new technology which allows printing with UV cured inks directly onto uncoated rigid substrates.. We offer 300 dpi, 600 dpi and even 1200 dpi resolution. We can either do four colour printing with optional six colour printing plus. We also do “white printing”, which allows us to do four colour process onto clear substrates.
Our UV Flatbed printer fills the gap between our multi screen printing program and our digital inkjet program. With resolution up to 1200 dpi, we can now offer a short run, premium colour images printed onto a wide selection of solid substrates. Rather than print a digital image onto paper, then apply a double adhesive, then mount onto a substrate and thenadd a protective laminate, direct UV flat bed printing eliminates three of these individual steps thereby reducing your costs in material, time and labor. For shorter print runs, our UV Flatbed provides a less costly option for printing directly onto substrates to a maximum print size of 5’ x 10’ and media thicknesses up to 2”.
The variety of media is practically unlimited. Traditional paper and card stocks, Coroplast, Styrene, Sintra, Foamcore, Gatorboard, both reinforced and pressure sensitive vinyl, canvas and fabrics. But there’s more! Aluminum, metal, wood, ceramic tiles, glass, acrylic, Plexiglas, acetate and other transparent media can also be printed on.
Our production group has been carefully trained on this new print technology; a technology that is still evolving. New applications are surfacing weekly. If you have a specific new need for direct printing onto substrates, contact us. We look forward to arriving with you at a satisfactory solution.
