What do print services entail?
Our printing services use innovative materials and equipment for the best result. Digital printing defines how the ink is printed onto the material and it works in a similar way to how home desktop printers work, but on a larger scale. Printer usually print in a four-colour process known as CMYK – this is made up of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black colours. The image being printed is split into these four main colours and prints as a set of percentages of each colour to create the desired image. We add white inks to reinforce the colours and reduce the translucency of the inks to make the image more opaque.
UV printing refers to the curing process of the ink which is used when printing onto plastic substrates. While home printing cures by air drying, with plastic materials there is no absorption, so the ink would simply run off. The addition of a drying solution helps the ink to dry thoroughly and this is achieved through a UV or UV LED light source, applied in quick sharp bursts to dry the ink quickly and to stop it pooling on the plastic sheet. The benefit of using UV light to dry the ink is that is makes them more durable and hardwearing, meaning they won’t fade as quickly as typical inks. This makes them better suited to outdoor applications or for window and vehicle stickers.
Our printing services provide a cost-effective option that is quicker to produce than some other printing techniques. There are many advantages to using digital printing processes, such as no pre-press costs or the need for stencils which are needed in lithographic or screen printing methods. For this reason, digital printing is well suited to custom designs and bespoke prints – it’s also more versatile for printing on different materials.
