UV Printing is a form of digital printing which uses ultra-violet light to cure ink to surfaces. Its rapid drying speed while maintaining a high level of detail makes it the superior choice for printing on plastic! It is used to print black, greyscale or any colors, to create text, logos, or even photographs. As such an imperative printing option for our entire plastic cardstock range, it is an included print feature in the base price of such products. On any plastic which is translucent, UV print is not an opaque printing process and therefore will retain the translucency of the cardstock. UV Print is also very versatile as it is compatible to be used in combination with any of our other available plastic print features. This can be very advantageous for clients who wish to reduce the translucency of some details, as UV print can then be applied over a more opaque print feature such as white ink.
