Ultra Violet (UV) printing is different from conventional printing in a number of ways. The basic elements – ink and paper – are the same, but the overall process and the products involved are completely unique.
In conventional printing, ink dries when solvents found in the ink evaporate into the air and absorb into the paper. UV inks, on the other hand, are cured on press via UV lamps.
Combined with high-quality products, UV printing offers a wide range of benefits, making it the preferred choice for a wide range of unique and high-quality print work.
If you have spent any time in a press room or manufacturing facility, you may have heard the expression, “Garbage in = Garbage out.” In other words, the quality of your end product is only as good as the quality of the materials you use to produce it.
In order to provide your customers with a high-quality product, you have to invest in the quality of the materials you purchase for your pressroom. Unfortunately, many printers have learned this lesson the hard way.
