A CHOICE OF UV OR SOLVENT PRINTING

UV PRINTING

UV printing and solvent printing are two popular techniques in the printing industry, each with its own unique advantages. UV printing utilizes ultraviolet light to cure or dry ink instantly, resulting in fast production and reduced drying time. This process allows for printing on a wide range of substrates, including rigid materials like glass, metal, and plastic.
UV inks are also highly durable, resistant to fading and scratching, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Additionally, UV printing offers vibrant colours and excellent print quality, capturing intricate details with precision.

SOLVENT PRINTING

Solvent printing employs solvent-based inks that contain pigments dissolved in a solvent carrier. This technique is particularly effective for large-format printing and is known for its durability and resistance to outdoor elements.
Solvent inks penetrate into the substrate, creating long-lasting prints that are resistant to water, UV rays, and abrasion. Solvent printers are versatile and can handle a wide range of materials, including vinyl, and banner materials. They are also known for their fast printing speeds, making them suitable for high-volume production.

MATERIALS

Material choice is a critical step in the design process. The material used for a product will have a significant impact on its performance, cost, and sustainability. There are many factors to consider when choosing a material, including the application, the environment, the budget, and the desired aesthetic.

Resin Domed Labels

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED SCREEN PRINTING?

The main advantage of screen printing is that it is a cost-effective method for printing large quantities of items. The initial setup cost for screen printing can be high, but the cost per unit decreases as the number of items printed increases. The ink used in screen printing is thick and durable, which makes the prints resistant to fading and wear.

Screen printing is also a versatile printing method that can be used to create a variety of designs.
