Eco Friendly Flat Sheet Digital UV Printing

Washington Graphics UV flatbed digital printing process is comprised of a flatbed digital press with flat sheets of material placed on the digital printing bed. Full color graphic images are directly printed on the loaded press sheet. Digitally printed sheets are removed from the flatbed press complete & ready to use.

UV flatbed printing allows imaging of full color vivid graphics through the use of inks and ultraviolet lamps that are mounted to the presses printer head. Our process produces vibrant full color graphics with extreme durability. A huge benefit of the UV printing process is our environment. This “green printing” solution with our VOC free “post curing” removes all harmful elements of the printing process


UV Printing 
UV flatbed printing takes flat sheet materials and transforms them into high-resolution point of purchase graphics or outdoor signage. Print on corrugated plastic for political signs or yard signs, full color posters for retail point of purchase displays, custom ceiling tiles for commercial interiors, or reverse print on clear acrylic for backlit applications. Our process opens up limitless printing options to meet all your signage needs.

Our flatbed printing process saves a large amount of time and money as most traditional roll-to-roll printing processes require printing to vinyl or similar materials, then mounting to a substrate. UV flatbed “green printing” eliminates waste and a step in your finished product by removing the print mounting, making your finished product highly economical without losing quality. Your finished products durability is further enhanced knowing that it will not delaminate!

UV flatbed printing is the perfect eco friendly printing solution for substrates that up till now have been extremely difficult to image on such as, plastics, metals, woods, papers, cardboard, polypropylene, polyethylene, and glass. These substrates can be loaded directly onto the UV flatbed printing press and imaged with full color graphic designs.  View Information on our UV Curable Ink
