Ultra-violet (UV) printing


With its ultra-violet (UV) printing capabilities, Magna IV can produce print and marketing collateral with more vivid colors, greater opacity, sharper details, higher abrasion and longer lifespans. Unlike conventional offset printing, UV ink dries within seconds so print jobs are able to move onto the next production step and enter the marketplace quicker. This environmentally friendly technique can be used on a wide variety of surfaces, including paper, plastic, foil, synthetics, vinyl and more.

Magna IV offers a variety of specialty techniques like matte, high gloss and satin coatings, as well as soft feel coatings to give substrates a velvet-like, smooth texture. It can even apply a high-gloss varnish on top of the soft feel to accentuate images or bold type and give print and marketing collateral even more “pop!”

Unlike other printers, Magna IV can do reticulation. This gives materials a higher contrast, three-dimensional look. It can also apply raised spot coating, which can add texture to specific items, such as salt on the rim of a margarita glass or water drops on a leaf. In addition to these finishes, Magna IV can add an assortment of finishes and inks like grit, glitter, glow in the dark, curable silver, liquid foil, textured, scratch off and optic white.
