Recently, with the advent of Specialty UV printers (such as the Compress brand of LED UV Printer’s), the interior decorator market has seen the rise of on-demand custom print ceramic tiles and printed photos on ceramic tiles.
Using any of the transfer style printers to create the effects you see in this video would not be possible. When you apply a transfer using sublimation, white toner printers or print & cut systems, you end up with a full image sheet covering the custom print ceramic tiles
For example, to apply a full image to print mosaic ceramic tiles, you would have to cut around EVERY tile. Yikes!
The direct, ink jetting of a flatbed UV printer is perfect for this application.
Flatbed UV Printers ONLY print where you tell them
There’s no curing necessary
You get a larger print area – more prints or bigger prints
Works with BOTH light and dark print ceramic tiles
If you offer other printed services to interior designers, custom tile shops, architects, etc. the Compress iuv600s should be at the top of your list.
