Frequently Asked Questions
Can I print on leather/faux leather?
Several Roland DG print technologies allow you to print or mark either real leather or faux leather in a straightforward and user-friendly process. While some technologies might suit your needs better than others, it's possible to customise artificial leather materials like PU leather and leatherette, as well as vegan-friendly leathers like Piñatex.
Is leather printing durable?
Today's digital printing and ink technologies are capable of producing some of the most tough and hardwearing output available. Not only can Roland DG leather printing inks withstand moisture and UV rays, special stretchable UV inks are ideal for leather-based substrates, with their high tolerances for frequent stretching and shrinking.
How do I print on leather/faux leather?
Depending on your needs, it's possible to print with a choice of ink types (like UV or Resin ink), using a direct print or a transfer-based system. You could print directly onto a leather item (like a wallet) using a flatbed UV solution, or you could print custom-designed patterns onto faux leather materials using a roll-to-roll Resin printer before an item goes into production. Solutions also exist to apply foil to leather for those wanting to add a more unique customisation service.
How do I print on a leather object?
It's possible to print onto 3D objects made of leather and we recommend flatbed UV printing as an ideal solution. With generous printing heights and highly precise calibration systems, it's perfect for printing onto flat leather objects. If you need help positioning irregularly shaped items on the print bed, read our article about creating your own printing jigs or get in touch with a Roland DG expert who will be happy to answer your questions.
How do I print on dark leather?
If you need to print on darker leather items and you want to retain vivid and accurate print reproduction, you should consider purchasing a direct-to-object print solution with the capability to print with white ink. This allows you to print a solid, white basecoat ensuring your prints have the fullest impact, even when printed on darker substrates.
