Nazdar's UV-LED inks have been specifically formulated to cure at 395 nanometers (nm). In general, UV-LED systems have a tolerance range of +/-5 nm and an nm output curve that is relatively narrow but spans approximately +/- 15 nm. The initiators selected for UV-LED inks target this range, but are also reactive outside this range. This means that UV-LED inks should be reactive to both UV-LED and mercury vapor curing systems. This may vary to some degree depending on the specific ink's color and pigment load.

Selling a customer a wrap job begins by asking a lot of questions. Through the process of interviewing the customer to determine their needs, we focus on how much of the vehicle will have graphics. Coverage will dictate price and will also determine the parameters of the design.

Environmental graphics are all about turning a space into an experience. Five shops show us how it's done.
Remember when the best thing about wide-format printing was that it was big? The task of slapping a logo on a banner or an ad on a poster will always fall to someone, but in 2017, those are no longer the jobs that showcase what digital can really do. The best thing about wide-format today is the ability to print someone special, and there's a whole new pool of end users who are beginning to pay attention.

Has your shop ever donated part or all of a wrap for a charitable cause? It should, and not only for the reason of doing good. Your shop could also do well by showing off its wrap chops (in addition to its generosity) to the community. And if you’ve just started in your market or have only recently taken on offering wraps, donating a wrap for a charitable cause will get you noticed – by the people supporting the cause itself, by the other sponsors and by the local public. Two companies that did wraps for different causes behind fighting breast cancer are featured here.

Having a business or other college degree does not guarantee any amount of success or sustainability in the wrap business. Nor is there a manual that spells it all out for you when courting brand new projects. This industry is ever-changing, and you have to learn how to invest in and adapt to the latest trends, printers, tools, vinyl film, installation techniques, etc.
