Advantages of UV direct printing
Apparent dot sharpness and color saturation are improved because there is little opportunity for ink dots to spread. No ink absorption into the actual substrate. Rather, the inks reside mostly hardened onto the outer surface of the substrate.
Chemical interaction with the substrate is reduced because of the quick, hard drying, and low absorption properties. This fact opens up doors to a variety of different substrates to be used. More choices means greater opportunity for creative sign solutions such as papyrus paper. Also, there are more opportunities for using diverse recycled materials.
The special UV inks employed release zero VOC’s,making it a greener process for our environment and a safer one.
The scratch-resistant surface makes the handling, transportation, and installation much improved. Plus this has a better tolerance to walk-by traffic than most. A tougher product ultimate leads to savings.
Faster production times because of the instant curing process. Jobs can even be two-sided, and its still a time saver for your UV print provider. Set-up time remains the same regardless of the printing process.
Lower cost because there is no need for additional materials and labor for mounting onto a second substrate. The surface does not need to be protected by an over-laminate nor to be placed under glass.
UV prints can be produced with high levels of gloss or dull finishes, depending on the look required for your project.
Installations can be easier because now you have the option to choose lightweight alternative substrates.
