Frequently Asked Questions

Yes - Direct-to-object UV or eco-solvent solutions make it possible to print directly onto a wide range of wooden material, including solid soft and hard wood, bamboo, cork and composite wooden products like plywood and chipboard.

There are several methods of transferring prints to wooden items. These include cold-apply methods like decal transfers, and heat transfer options like heat-transfer vinyl and direct-to-film (DTF) printing. Results will vary widely depending on the type of wood used, the evenness of the surface and other factors. It's best to test options prior to production or to consult an expert for more advice.

Most digital printing technologies print with inks which are semi-transparent, making them best-suited for printing onto light-coloured surfaces. However, white ink is also available, which creates an opaque sub-coat allowing you to reproduce images on any surface with full vibrancy.

To print any texture, you will need a UV printer equipped with gloss or clear UV ink. This is specified in the design file with a special spot colour, which the printer's software can interpret as gloss ink areas. You can vary the transparency of these spot colours or add gradients to increase or decrease the density of gloss ink, effectively adding another dimension to the print output. To emphasise the effect even further, you can build the print up in several layers. To learn more about these techniques, browse our blog or get in touch with a Roland DG print expert
