Our New HP Scitex UV printer not only produces our signage faster and more efficiently, but is 100% environmentally friendly.
UV printers and UV inks allow direct-to-substrate production, reducing waste. Uv ink is cured by UV light and is ready to be shipped as soon as it comes off the printer.
With conventional ink , the printer lays the ink on a vinyl product with a plastic or paper backing. Once the ink is dry, the print has to be laminated and applied to the substrate. By printing directly to substrate, these additional steps are no longer required, thus eliminating all waste from the backing of vinyl and laminate which would otherwise end up in a landfill.
