 Let's take a journey (2)

The addition of our NEW UV print capabilities allows us to provide many advantages over traditional printing. Below are a few of the main benefits of UV printing and ideas as to how UV print technology can elevate your brand: 

  • Environmental - UV printing is considered a green technology because it leaves an almost zero-carbon footprint and releases no VOC's into the environment. 
  • UV Cures Immediately - Because the inks are exposed to ultra-violet lights, they immediately turn from a liquid to a solid with almost no absorption of the ink into the paper stock. This means you can print on almost an substrate you can imagine when printing with UV inks. And, it's not just for paper and board stock. We can also UV print on styrene, PVC, polycarbonate, PETG, flexible vinyl, clings, metallic board or foil. Plus it's superior on uncoated stocks. 
  • Passport to eye-catching and tactile techniques - When you incorporate UV printing into your design, the image becomes more alive and the images become a tactile and tangible product. Some of the main techniques to consider are: 
    • Raised UV Coating
    • Textured UV Coating
    • Glitter Coating
    • Sandpaper Coating
    • Grit Coating
    • Dry Erase Coating
    • Rubber Coating
    • Pearlescent Coating 
    • Iridescent Coating
    • Strike-through-effect UV coating and reticulating varnish combinations
As you can see, there are many places you can go with UV printing. As your guide, we are with you every step of the way, providing ideas and solutions. Keep your eyes on the horizon; we will be launching a new campaign specific to UV printing and techniques. It will include a toolkit with inspiring and educational printed samples, price comparisons, design tips, and more. To explore the possibilities and learn more, click here
