Print Techniques and Plant List

Solvent printing is the hardiest of printings and is used for indoor and outdoor media. The print is UV fast and water proof. The process is fast and can be used on a wide variety of media. The print has excellent reproduction. Commonly used in the production of banners, signage and exhibition work. We can use various materials to suit long and short term applications.

We use a range of Mimaki Solvent Printers with Mimaki's own inks for colour matching and high quality print reproduction.

Aqueous printing is a water based ink. This is not as permanent as other processes but has its place in the exhibition and fine-art markets. More inks make the colours more vibrant and give depth to images. We use this for products such as exhibition stands and posters. Aqueous prints can be encapsulated in various laminates to protect them from damage and UV effects.

We use Epson Fine Art Printers to give maximum colour definition to you prints and fast turnaround speed.

Ultra Violet (UV) printing is becoming more popular due to the environmental and cost saving benefits that it offers. UV print can be onto roll fed media or direct to substrate. The process involves ultra violet rays changing a liquid into a solid, the environmental aspect comes from the fact that there is little evaporation of harmful substances into the atmosphere. UV printing increase the range of materials that can be printed on and now we can print direct onto Wood, melamine, veneer, plastic, Perspex or metal and other non-porous substrates.

We use an LED UV Flatbed printer with white ink and gloss varnish to give us a wide range of high quality print finishes on virtually any material.
