How to Print Custom Ceramic Tiles Mosaic | Compress LED UV Printer
Interior Designer have been having custom FABRIC printed for years. There are established on demand custom fabric printers all over the world serving the interior design market.
But it’s only recently that the Compress LED UV printer has brought on demand custom ceramic tile printing like this to the market!
The ability to print on glazed ceramic tiles, like the mosaic that you will see here in this video, add another VERY profitable option for printers, designers and custom tile outlets with the need to add personalization services.
Tiles shown are standard sized 12” x 12” squares of white glazed ceramic tiles purchased retail for $3.00 each.
We chose a stock image of water color lilies to print, but the Compress iUV1200s flatbed UV printer could have printed any design on these! Here are just a few ideas:
• Family Photos
• Sayings or Quotes
• Abstract patterns
• Classic Paintings
You can even use the same pattern you had created for a custom fabric for draperies or furniture!
Printing on Tiles or making custom tiles is just one of the things you can do with the Compress UV Printer.

The Compress iUV1200s LED UV Printer is a flatbed uv printer that occupies a unique place in the market with a 44.75” x 29.5” bed size. That’s significantly larger than any similar product on the market. Most small format uv printers are 14x16” only.
The other unique feature, which you will not see demonstrated here, is that you can print on items up to 11.8” deep. We’re printing on standard tiles here but why limit your opportunities?
We are showing printing 4 here, but there WAS room on the bed for more tiles.
• Mosaic tile set of 4 dimensions of 23”” x 23”
• Total Ink cost $.55
• Total materials cost for the tiles approximately $12.55
• All 4 Tile squares printed in approximately 6:40
• Production would be about 8 sets per hour
Easy ROI Calculations:
We found one company online that will create a custom mosaic using square tiles (21.25” x 21.25” was the closest dimension to ours) with this exact image for $297.50
Using that retail value as a sample:
• You can print 8 sets of these in 1 hour
• You will be able to produce 48 of these custom tiles per hour
• Materials cost per hour = 8 X $12.55 = $100.40
Using a $297.50 retail for each that is $2,380/hour in revenues.
Less your $100.40 in materials cost you have over $2,279.60 for labor, profits and overhead.
We realize these are very simple calculations and costs and revenues will vary.. but the opportunity is there!
The Compress LED UV Printer is a great tool for printing custom ceramic tiles.
