How Does UV Printing Work?

UV digital printing speeds up the print production process by instantly curing specially formulated UV inks on a vast range of materials using UV lamps.

Print Head Technology

Piezo print heads eject ink with precision onto the print media. This technology gives you control over the print quality, colour density and finish.

UV Inks

The ink is instantly cured during printing, meaning you can produce more, faster, with no drying times and ensure a high-quality, durable finish.

UV Lamps

LED lamps are long-lasting, ozone-free, safe, energy-efficient and cost-effective. Their low temperatures let you print on heat sensitive materials.

Print Onto Almost Anything


You can print on a huge range of material with UV print. Since the ink is cured instantly, it isn’t absorbed and doesn’t not etch, damage or react with the media. Also, with low curing temperatures, you can print on heat-sensitive materials.

With this capability, you can extend your product catalogue to include items made from wood, glass, ceramic, leather, canvas or metal, as well as a wide range of plastics.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can UV print onto most fabrics if they can be placed flat on the bed, but it is not recommended for garments which may come into contact with skin. In all cases, it’s recommended to test any substrate to ensure the best results.

Printing on acrylic sheets or block is similar to printing on any other flat surface – simply place the item on the bed, set up your artwork in the RIP and start printing. You may wish to mask the sides of acrylic blocks to prevent overspray.

A UV print will typically last at least 2 years without fading, and with lamination, this can be even longer.

Spot UV is a term used to describe the application of a clear ink for highlighting elements of the design. This creates an eye-catching, glossy finish in specific areas, for example on logos or text.

Because the ink is cured instantly at low temperatures, UV printers use much less energy than other technologies which rely on heat to dry the ink. Also, the lamps require no warm-up time, which reduces standby consumption when not in use.
