Instant Drying LED-UV Printing & Uncoated paper

On a conventional press, the inks absorb into the paper and much of the colour vibrancy is lost. LED-UV Printing is different, Instant drying gives stunning uncoated paper results every time.

Our LED-UV press has been installed now for 3 months and is far exceeding our expectations. One of the most obvious benefits is how vibrant and detailed a result we now get on uncoated papers and boards. This is because of the instant drying, on a conventional press the inks absorb into the paper and a couple of hours after printing fine detail and much of the colour vibrancy has been lost as it has absorbed into the paper.

LED-UV doesn't suffer from this as the inks dry instantly, 'freezing' the image onto the paper exactly as the designer intended for it to look. Thus giving vibrant colours and fine detail like hair is preserved without the edges 'softening'.

Uncoated paper use in on the increase and it is used for a variety of purposes, and with it's perceived 'trendy' image it's often used for college prospectus. We were approached by Reaseheath College of Nantwich, to print their new prospectus onto our Horizon Uncoated Paper. The end result is stunning and far exceeds previous prospectus printed onto Uncoated Paper. The areas of solid colour had depth that almost jumped off the page and images had a previously unavailable clarity.

There are many other uses of uncoated papers, catalogues, brochures and leaflets are just a few, ask us about how LED-UV Printing could make your printed items come to life.
