Digital Direct Printing

For graphics that wow, you can’t do better than digital direct printing. This is a specialty service you will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Digital direct printing is a permanent fixture that can be applied to glass, plastic, metal, and many other surfaces. Our process can add texture and usability to make your product stand out. 

UV Direct Printing

As the printer distributes ink on the surface of a material, specially designed UV lights follow close behind to dry the ink instantly. This method has several benefits, including easily adding second-surface graphics and logos to packaging. It is ideal for those who want to achieve brilliant colors and graphics with low-minimum quantities.  

UV direct print is a four-color process print (4CP), but we can color match most PMS colors.  With our presses, we also can print white ink, making it possible to print on top of colored materials.

Advantages to UV Direct Print Include

  • No minimum quantities!  However, the lower the volume, the higher the cost. Regardless of volume, there is a basic machinery setup charge for each item or container printed.
  • High print quality! At 1200 DPI resolution, the sharpness and color saturation is fantastic. 
  • Zero VOCs make UV ink an eco-friendly process.
  • UV prints can be produced with gloss or clear finishes for an additional charge.
  • UV printing can also be used for an embossed or debossed look by printing multiple layers of ink onto the surface of the packaging.

Not all package shapes are suitable for UV Direct Printing. Our team would be happy to consult with you about whether or not UV direct printing is ideal for your project.

Note: we must perform an ink adhesion test first if you have an item or container that you want direct-printed. Please have five samples ready to send in for testing.
