LED-UV Offset Printing
We provide offset printing on paper and plastic, including styrene, vinyl, and more. Our team uses LED-UV technology which completely dries the press sheet before it is delivered in the press. This technology enables us to print a sharper dot with minimum dot gain. It also eliminates the problem of marking and “dry back.” This occurs when the wet sheet does not match up with the sheet the following day after it has dried completely. When printing on non-enamel offset sheets, LED-UV offers significant advantages. Colors are more vibrant resulting in an image that is sharper with fine line detail. Also, the ink dries before it soaks into the paper.
Through reticulation, we create various patterns, textures, and effects on press with the application of spot varnish and UV coating to standard offset print. With the mixture of these two applications, a chemical reaction results that produces a visual effect. Our application of reticulating varnish produces texture, dimension, and depth to words and images. With this feature, you can replicate almost anything, giving the appearance of multiple layers, raised images from the page, or even the feel of silk and sand.
Environmentally Safe Offset Printing
With LED-UV printing, the inks do not carry any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which makes them safer for the environment. With the inks hardening instantly, off-gassing is also not an issue. This technology does not generate heat and uses less energy. It also does not use spray powder. The state-of-the-art equipment we use is extensive and impressive.
