Why We Love Digital UV Printing?

Digital 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. And, today we are going to talk about why we love UV printing.

Print on most materials
First and foremost, digital UV printing is better for the environment because no solvents are being released into the air, helping your business to reduce its emissions. Another advantage is the fact that you can print on nonporous materials like plastic, glass and metals. Essentially, if you can fit the material into the printing press, you can print on it with UV ink.
 
Quicker than conventional printing
Aside from the aforementioned, there are a few other major benefits to this unique printing process. For one, it’s far quicker than conventional printing. You no longer need to wait for the ink on your pieces to dry, as the UV ink dries through a photomechanical process. It’s almost instantaneous, so you can get more done in less time.
 
Cost-effective
Because of this, UV printing is also an incredibly cost-effective method. Think about it; you’re clearly saving money through the faster drying times. However, there are also big savings to be made by removing the need for aqueous coatings, which are necessary for conventional ink to dry faster and not smear. UV printing requires no coatings.
 
Vibrant finish
In addition, UV printing often provides a more vibrant finish, as the UV lights give the ink no time to soak into the paper. Photorealistic printing is more than achievable, so whether you’re creating an external sign or a stack of beautiful business cards, your customers are sure to be pleased with the final result.
