UV Printing onto Glass

UV Printing onto Glass

Advances in UV digital printing technology have opened up a world of new opportunities for shops willing to experiment with the various types of media options available to them. One of these areas includes the process of printing onto glass. In the past, imaging onto glass was mainly achieved through painting, etching and screen printing—now the same results are being attained faster and more economically using UV-cure inkjet flatbed printer technology.

Beating Static Buildup in UV Printing

Beating Static Buildup in UV Printing

Anyone who is printing onto plastic-based substrates with a UV-curing inkjet printer has encountered the problem of static buildup. Static electricity is the result of an imbalance between positive and negative charges. These charges build up on the surface of an object until they find a way to be released or discharged.

Are LED Curing Systems ready to take over?

Are LED Curing Systems ready to take over?

There’s been much attention of late on the use of mercury arc lamps for curing applications in the printing industry.

This technology is widely used however it has some serious drawbacks, not least the fact that it uses an awful lot of energy even when not actually curing anything. This means cost and unnecessary emissions which do nothing to improve a company’s carbon footprint.

High-End UV Flatbeds and the Changing Dynamics of In-Store Marketing

The use of screen-printing equipment for P-O-P and retail graphics declines as orders for shorter runs of more customized materials continue to rise.

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been about 15 years since the first flatbed inkjet printers to use UV-curable inks hit the market. So much has changed since 2000, both for firms that started out as screen printers and their clients in retailing and brand marketing.

What Can’t You Print On?

What Can’t You Print On?

The flatbed printer revolution and what it means for your business.

When discussing flatbed UV printing, the statement “what can’t you print on!” is probably more appropriate. With the right flatbed device, there are not many items you can’t directly print on. For sign shops and other design and print businesses, UV flatbed printing represents a massive increase in production capabilities.

Edge Lighting LEDs

Edge Lighting LEDs

Any time there’s a discussion of the versatile light-emitting diode (LED), there’s sure to be a lot of acronyms thrown into the mix. And acronyms—unless you have a military background (Lima! Echo! Delta! Sierra!)—can sometimes confuse and befuddle. So, for the sake of this treatise on edge-lit acrylic signs, we’ll keep the acronyms to a minimum, perhaps only to the most important acronym of all: LED.
