What is UV Printing?
UV printing is a form of digital printing that uses ultra-violet lights to dry or cure ink as it is printed. As the printer distributes ink on the surface of a material (called a "substrate"), specially designed UV lights follow close behind, curing - or drying - the ink instantly. Originally developed for quickly drying gel nail polishes during manicures, ultraviolet light applications quickly expanded into industrial and commercial markets. Because the UV lights cure any printed ink immediately, the dots of wet ink do not get a chance to spread out once printed, resulting in much finer detail.
 
In addition, UV cured inks are weather-resistant and offer increased resistance to fading. This curing process is more environmentally friendly as it produces few VOC’s, odor, and heat. UV curing also allows the flatbed printer to be used with nontraditional materials like acrylic or aluminum. In fact, this UV flatbed printer is compatible with most substrates up to 2” thick!

Essentially, what sets this flatbed printer out from the crowd is its UV curing technology. This type of printer will allow us to print directly onto materials like acrylic with record speed and incredible detail - all while maintaining the highest industry standards for environmentally responsibile printing processes! In this article, we’ll explain how UV printing works, what our UV printer can do, and why it’s a great choice for those seeking custom signage!
