Our state of the art digital printers provide the customer with a multitude of advantage over traditional offset printing. Affordability, speed, quality, and versatility make digital UV printing the best choice for most printing projects. And now, large format UV printers have overcome the disparity in size that existed in offset vs. digital printing.
ADVANTAGES OF DIGITAL PRINTING
WHEN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IS A CONCERN
Because evaporation is minimized, there are far fewer emissions of volatile organic compounds into the environment compared to other inks. UV printing uses a photomechanical process to cure the ink versus drying through evaporation.
WHEN A SPECIFIC LOOK IS DESIRED
UV Printing is perfect for projects that need one of two looks:
- A crisp, sharp look on uncoated stock, or
- A satin look on coated stock
Of course, that doesn’t mean other looks can’t be accomplished. Talk to your printing rep to see if UV is right for your project.
WHEN IT’S A RUSH JOB
Since there is no evaporation process to wait around for, UV inks don’t bring the down times other inks do while they dry. This can save time and get your pieces into the market much more quickly
WHEN SMUDGING OR ABRASION IS A CONCERN
The fact that UV printing dries instantly insures that regardless of how quickly you need the piece in hand, the work won’t be smudged and a UV coating can be applied to prevent abrasions.
