UV Process Printing - Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between UV Printing and Heat set printing?
UV Process Printing uses a special formula of ink that is cured by
UV lamps allowing a cold web press to print quality process color
on gloss stocks. UV Process printing does not utilize heaters to
dry the ink, so it is more energy efficient. The quality of
registration is still comparable to cold web printing with colors
that are more vibrant and do not offset or smudge.
Do I need to prepare my files differently if my publication is
printing in UV Process?
Generally, UV Process Printing is much darker and more vivid in
color than printing on cold web press. You may want to consider
lightening your photos for this process.
What makes UV Process Printing more environmentally friendly than
Heat set printing?
Without the use of solvents, there are no VOCs (volatile organic
compounds) released into the atmosphere resulting in a better
environment for all of us.
How long has UV Printing been around?
UV Process printing has been around for over 30 years, but only in
the last few years has it been available for the application of
printing on cold web offset presses. Eagle Web Press was a beta
site for testing and proving the UV inks. We started printing with
the UV Process in 2008.
What are the advantages for printing with UV Process over cold web
UV Process printing is environmentally friendly, energy efficient,
produces rich, vibrant colors without offsetting traditionally
associated with cold web presses at a lower cost than heat set
Currently my publication is on uncoated stock, can I keep the same
paper but print UV?
UV printing is available on uncoated stocks as well as coated paper
stocks.Welcome to contact with us for the quotation .
I have Process color on one plate, the balance of my publication is
black ink only. Can I have the UV Process only on the one plate
where I have full color?
We also offer combo publications with one web printing with UV
process and the balance printing conventional cold web. This is a
good way to increase your overall look and quality without a huge
jump in costs.
Why is UV Process Printing more energy efficient?
Traditional print technologies (ie heat set) using conventional
materials generate high energy costs due to the extensive use of
ovens and dryers required to pull water and solvents out of the
inks (curing the inks). UV process printing does not require
heaters or dryers, using a fraction of the energy needed for
traditional heat set.
How does the UV special ink work?
The UV process relies on special inks that have photo initiators in
them that when exposed to UV light, spurs a chain reaction that
forms a solid, dry continuous ink, yielding bright, vivid colors
and deep rich blacks. We are very pleased with the success to date
and anticipate an ever growing increase in demand of UV printed
Are spot colors available for UV Printing?
Yes, these inks are special order, so allow a minimum of two weeks
for ordering prior to production. Pantone colors can be mixed using

Advantages of UV Flatbed Print Technology
The biggest advantages of UV Print technology are versatility andaccuracy. Rigid substrates from glass to wood now become printable with
exceptional detail. As long as your material has a flat surface and
does not exceed the maximum size of printable area of the flatbed,
you can print on it.
UV Flatbed Printing offers you:
- Versatile direct-to-rigid-substrate printing
- CMYK + White ink capabilities
- Near photographic image qualities
- Fast print onto rigid substrates up to 48mm thick
- Full integration with our in-house digital routing and cutting
