Q:Why UV printing?
It's green! Because the ink is dried immediately with UV lamps, there are virtually no
chemicals (VOC's) released into the air.
It's fast! Again, no waiting around for inks to dry. This means your printed piece can move
along the production line without stopping to dry!
It's cost effective! You save time in drying and in costly coatings. A costly aqueous coating
is often applied when using traditional inks to promote faster drying times and to prevent
smearing and smudging. UV printing does not require aqueous coating!
It's more appealing! The UV inks are more vibrant since the ink does not have as much time to
soak into the stock. It is also a harder surface with a lot more sheen!
