Special Inks and Coatings

Raised UV

UV inks are changing the industry. Why? They’re

Brighter | Faster | Healthier

Vivid colors - UV inks cure quickly so they do not soak into the paper the way that conventional inks are known to. This dramatic difference creates breathtakingly vibrant colors, even on uncoated stocks. Add a glossy UV coating to make your entire project “pop.”

And because the drying time is negated, the colors you see during your press checks will not change as the inks dry (known as dry back).

Faster turn-times - Conventional inks take a minimum of 12 hours to dry before they can move onto the next stage of the process. UV inks are cured on-press - and because Printco has a full line of bindery and finishing options, this means your project never sits idle.

Environmentally-forward technology - Curing these special inks with ultra-violet lighting is revolutionary in that it produces no VOCs (volatile organic compound). Whether your printed piece is saved, recycled, or eventually thrown in a landfill, this clean process means it will not biodegrade in a harmful way.

And the best thing about UV Inks?

The way it makes people go, “Oooooh!”
