Our new flatbed printer has so many benefits and features that produces such amazing, high quality printing on rigid material that we had to share what we have learned.
Flatbed printing is used on many types of rigid substrate:
- Coroplast, foam and gator board
About the printer and benefits:
- Prints up to 64” wide
- Prints on thick material up to 2.5″
- Load, print and collect media simultaneously
- 6 different colored inks and capable of white printing
- UV Curable inks help keep the workplace free from odors
- Different sizes materials and different images can print at the same time
- Indoor and outdoor applications
- Real Estate
- Yard signs
- Traffic signs
- Construction Sites
- Home builders
- Fine art and decoration
Here is the best reason for this type of printer:
No more mounting and laminating. Print directly to the material. This saves the extra steps of: printing on flexible material and then mounting on the rigid substrate. No laminating material and backing (waste) material is used. TIME, MONEY, and REDUCES WASTE!
Soon after we got the printer set up and running, we got a call from a small company in Cheyenne, WY called Warehouse21. Here is how they describe what they do: “W21 is a full-service advertising, marketing and design firm located in a historically significant old warehouse in the heart of Cheyenne, Wyoming. We specialize in creating and executing strategically sound, integrated, multimedia campaigns that produce measurable results. Since no two projects are ever alike, we create customized advertising and marketing solutions that successfully integrate strategy, creativity, content and technology to elevate brands and move people to act.” Wow! You must go to their website and read about the team and more about what they do. The company was working on a project for the Wyoming Judicial Learning Center and needed some assistance with flatbed printing.
We printed almost 300 signs using maxmetal on white, brushed metal and gold metal. In many different sizes including different sizes of circles. Maxmetal is ideal for high-quality digital and screenprinted graphics and perfect for the job.
Many different types of full color prints were made:
