Direct to substrate flatbed digital printing. Just what does that mean, you ask? Well, for our customers, it means more options in signage, quicker job completion times, and less waste, so that we can keep costs low. We understand that technology is in a constant state of evolution, and that you probably don’t care about the minute specifics of this new piece of equipment; however, we also understand that you DO care about what this new piece of machinery can do for you and your business! So, for the sake of simplicity – and because we all love lists – let us just run down the basics.
- Using inkjet printing, it can reproduce digital images with additional capabilities that some of the older generation printers were not capable of doing.
- It can print on any hard surface material up to 2 inches thick, including paperboard, plastic, wood, metal, tile, glass, Formica, etc.
- By printing direct to the substrate, there is no cutting and mounting required, eliminating extra materials, time, and expense.
- With a 4’ x 8’ printer bed, it allows for large format printing.
- The resolution, visual acuity, and vibrant color are superior to early printing equipment.
- The ink used is fade-resistant, lending to a multi-year life expectancy for the finished product.
- With color matching capabilities, you can count on a consistent appearance from one substrate to another – very important for branding and advertising.
- Quick drying ink and one-sheet solutions leads to less material needed for a final print and less time for you to wait for your project.
