The International Sign Association (ISA) explores the benefits of innovative curing technologies in its latest whitepaper, produced in conjunction with InfoTrends. The paper reviews both UV cured and latex inkjet methods. In addition to examining the market trends and opportunities in wide-format printing as well as the benefits of UV curable and latex ink technologies, the whitepaper includes fascinating case studies of two sign and print shops that have implemented the technology.
An AlphaGraphics franchise in Suwanee, GA, found success in serving movie and television production clients. After installing a wide-format printer with cool cure inkjet technology, the company has been able to print acrylic Christmas ornaments using white inks, newsprint for movie props, movie backdrops and exhibit graphics.
Portland Vital Signs in Portland, OR, uses two printers with LED UV technology to manufacture signs and retail displays for clients across the U.S. It has found the LED technology’s lower heat allows for printing on much thinner materials. The whitepaper also compares the various benefits of UV cured and latex inkjet technologies.
The research is free for ISA and Affiliated Association members. It’s $24.95 for non-members. More information: www.signs.org/curingtechnologies.
