UV printing is a high quality, exceptionally durable and cost effective large format printing process for the production of a wide range of display graphics. There are two types of UV printing offered, firstly roll fed UV printing where graphics are printed onto a roll of media, often films, vinyls and PVCs, and flatbed printing with UV inks, where graphics are printed direct to various, rigid or flexible, flat surfaced medias and substrates (so also known as direct to substrate or direct to media UV printing) such as PVC Foamex boards or ACM (aluminium composite material).
UV printers use environmentally friendly UV curing inks, which are cured with UV light which also means the inks have to be very UV resistant, therefore, UV prints are extremely good for graphics that are situated in direct sunlight. UV prints are also water resistant and abrasion resistant so are perfect for outdoor graphics in all weather conditions
