A Print Finishing Primer

A Print Finishing Primer

In the digital graphics industry, a great deal of attention is paid to output devices. It isn’t difficult to understand why. Wide-format inkjet devices, whether fast or slow, flatbed or roll-to-roll, play an important role in the creation of graphic prints. But it’s important to remember that most prints must be finished in some way before they can be delivered to the customer as a sellable final product. One of the most common and perhaps underappreciated finishing steps is lamination.

Printer Technology: Looking Under the Hood

The rapid pace of technological development and innovation in the area of wide-format digital printers has dramatically changed the landscape of print possibilities for the sign and commercial graphics industry. From ultra-high resolutions and ever increasing production speeds to the ever-widening range of printable substrates—the technology that enables these feats has become the backbone of this progress.

Understanding Laminating Film

Understanding Laminating Film

Of all the questions and issues surrounding the lamination of large format digital graphics, film selection is perhaps one of the toughest. Selecting lamination films is sometimes a complex process.

Price alone is not a good basis for making film-buying decisions either. Unless you know from experience that it will work on your media, buying the lowest price film can be a losing proposition. The cost of reprinting and refinishing the pieces ruined by using the wrong film is much higher than the extra cost of buying the right film at the start.
