Flatbed printing replacing Silkscreening. This is why…
Flatbed printing offers stunning resolution and UV resistance for non-fade longevity.
Typically used for commercial applications (retail and event signage), flatbed printing is often a substitute for screen-printing. Since no printing plates or silk-screens must be produced, digital printing technology allows shorter runs of signs to be produced economically.
Flatbed Digital printing is the reproduction of digital images using inkjet printing, typically on smooth boards, wallpaper, posters ect… Materials are placed on a vacuum bed and imaged from above. Printers use inks made of acrylic monomers that are then exposed to strong UV-light to cure them.
The advantage of flatbed digital printing
The biggest advantage that you can get from flatbed digital printing is the versatility that they offer. No matter what material, and what size of the material or quantity you want to print , as long as it has a flat surface and does not exceed the maximum size of printable area of the flatbed, you can print on it. The resolution of prints produced is also very high and they can print in quick speed.
For a truly unique print, this is the best process….
