UVDTF Printing

UVDTF ™ is a process by which you use a UV printer (that is capable of UV white/color and varnish printing) to print to UVDTF ™ sheets. Instead of printing directly to hard objects (which could be limited in production environments, owing to only being able to print to 1 object at a time, or limited to materials that are not irregularly shaped), you can print instead with your UV printer to UVDTF™ Sheets, 1 image at a time, or multiple images at a time, essentially creating a UV printed sticker sheet (with 1 or multiple images). Then simply peel and transfer your UV "stickers" to your hard objects. Great for irregular materials, curved materials, and ultra-tall or very large materials, that otherwise may not be possible to print directly to).

UVDTF® works on UVTRANSFER® printers, or any UV printer that has enough channels to print CMYK + W + Varnish.

UVDTF® combines the technologies of UV and DTF. Utilizing UV printers and UV ink, you can print to UVDTF ™ sheets, for transferance to hard objects (even curved objects).

What is UVDTF®?

UVDTF® is a cutting-edge solution at the intersection of UV Printing Technology and DTF Printing Technology. Instead of printing with UV ink direct to substrates, you can print with UV ink (and varnish) to UV DTF ® Sheets, and then through a 2 step process, transfer your UV prints to your substrate. Instead of using your UV printer to print directly to hard objects (which could be limited in production, owing to only being able to print to 1 object at a time, or limited to materials that are not iregularly shaped), you can print insetad with your UV printer to UVDTF ® Sheets, 1 image at a time, or multiple images at a time, essentially creating a UV printed sticker. Then simply peel and transfer your UV "stickers" to your hard objects. Great for irregular materials, curved materials, and ultra-tall or very large materials, that otherwise may not be possible to print directly to).

NOTE: While the UVDTF Stickers are water-resistant and wear-resistant, they are not as resistant to the elements as direct to object UV printing.

The UVDTF® prints will adhere to almost all hard substrate materials including Puzzles, Canvas, Cell Phone Cases, Leather, Glass, Labels, Metal, Crystal, KT Board, Acrylic, PVC, ABS, EVA, Plastic, Mobile Power Banks / Chargers, Stone, U disks / Thumb Drives, Silica Gel.

Procedure:

  • Print to A film (print with UV ink, and add a layer of varnish print for best results)
  • Laminate A film to B film
  • Peel and apply
