Offset UV Printing
Fast • Environmentally Friendly • Effects
Ultraviolet (UV) inks are the best solution for synthetic stocks and uncoated paper, as the inks dry instantly without coating. In UV printing, special inks are exposed to ultraviolet radiation (think 'the sun', not Chernobyl). This UV radiation causes the inks to harden instantly on top of the substrate. The result produces high levels of gloss or dull coating, vivid color, and vibrant detail with superior rub resistance and no post-cure dryback--even on soft, uncoated sheets.
UV inks cure so quickly, products can be finished more rapidly, enabling higher throughput and fast turnaround, even on two-sided jobs. In-line UV printing is notable for the superior results it can achieve on difficult substrates, from uncoated paper and board to foil, including synthetic papers and static cling vinyl.
Horizon Printing is the only Austin, Pflugerville, and Round Rock area printing company with this capability in-house. Our UV inks have the option of printing with or without UV gloss coating, and can produce a variety of ink-based effects. Stop by and let us show you samples so you can see (and feel) the difference.
