Why Use UV Flatbed Printers?

The value of a UV flatbed printer is in the wide variety of surfaces onto which it can print. The possibilities are seemingly endless. Whether used for marketing, advertising, interior design or visual art, a UV flatbed printer can transform your creative approach.

UV Flatbed Printers Can Print Onto…

  • Ceramic: This substrate can be easily used for objects such as coasters, mugs, and dishware. Coasters are a great way to market your brand, and personalized mugs or dishware are thoughtful gifts for any special person in your life.
  • Leather: Just like ceramic, leather is used for many common products. A customized design on a leather wallet, belt, or notebook can make it quickly stand out amongst the rest.
  • Glass: One of the most versatile surfaces, glass can serve as the material for just about anything. Consider a picture frame, candle holder or any other home accent with beautiful customization.
  • Wood: Enhance your home or office by using a UV flatbed printer to create a custom wood piece.

These are just a few of the surfaces we use with our UV flatbed printers. Others include Plexi, aluminum, Sintra, and various eco-friendly options.
