UV Printing for the Corrugated Printed Box
UV Printing & Inks
UV printing is environmental friendly while producing vivid images for your custom printed paper boxes and gift paper boxes. Below are the benefits of the UV printing:
- Faster turnaround time: UV inks dry instantly on the press when exposed to UV light
- Zero VOC emission: unlike the conventional inks containing hazardous chemical solvents, UV inks release no volatile organic compounds (VOC)
- Higher resistance to smudge and abrasion
- More vivid printed texts and graphics on your custom packaging box or paper bag
UV coating is a special varnishing that dries within a second when exposed to the UV light. It reduces the production time and adds an extra layer of protection from abrasion without adding thickness or reducing flexibility.
Also called UV varnishing, UV coating is a process for achieving a richer coating on your custom printed boxes.
The UV coating is divided into 2 types, all-over UV coating and spot UV coating.
UV Printing for the Black Paper Box
All-Over UV Coating
For all-over UV coating, the UV varnishes are applied all over the printing surface. It provides the excellent protective qualities and a pleasant tactile experience for the consumers.
Spot UV Coating
For spot UV varnishing, the UV varnishes are only applied to the specific area of the printing surface to highlight specific texts or images, particularly the logo. The Spot UV varnishing is widely used for cosmetic packaging boxes, jewelry boxes, luxury paper bags, paper boxes, rigid boxes, gift boxes, and retail packaging boxes.
