UV Printing on Acrylic | Making Custom Plaques in Full Color
UV Printing on acrylic is a time saver and a money-maker if you're in the Awards and Engraving business!
During this video you'll see us use the Compress iUV600s small format uv printer to print some beautiful custom acrylic awards. This one shows us front printing on 2 different sized acrylic panels for mounting on plaques.
The Achieving Dreams plaque shows off the uv printer's ability to lay down a full panel of white ink, then print the color on top for a high impact, high contrast print. Because it's an ink jet process and not vinyl or a transfer we even carried the design over the bevel without noticeable distortion.
The Champions plaque, also printed with the same small format uv printer [17.7" x 24" print area], demonstrates the ability to print JUST white ink for the lettering, and targeted white for the image.
Small format uv printer advantages:
- Printing White - this allows you to back print and to print on dark colored material
- Direct ink jet printing - means there's never any weeding
- UV Inks - dries immediately! No overnight curing, spoiled prints or transfers
- Print on MORE THINGS - no more having to order expensive sublimation blanks for ceramics or metals
