UV inkjet is a special form of inkjet printing that involves special inks and UV light.

Just like typical inkjet print technology, drops of liquid ink are strategically placed onto the media in a waterfall of ink to create the desired image. However, once this step is completed the UV inks are cured under a UV light.

This curing process offers the same colour and resolution capabilities of inkjet, with a more durable image that can perform in harsher environments.

This print technology is ideal for short run jobs that require variable data, durability and colour.
