What is LE UV offset

Lately, you’ve seen occasional updates about our newest acquisition, but now it’s really official: our LE UV offset printing press is installed and ready to roll! What that means for your printing? We list that neatly here.

Your printing is done much faster

One of the very greatest strengths of this printing press: the lightning-fast ink curing. With a traditional printing press, we usually use a transparent varnish or smet powder as an additional protective layer to make the ink dry faster. You don’t have to do that anymore. Thanks to the innovative LE UV technology, the ink is cured in an instant and printing sheets can be finished immediately. Speed and efficiency: check!

But also really much faster

It’s not just the rapid curing of the ink that makes it more efficient. The LE UV offset printing press operates almost fully automatically. “Push-to-Stop” is what it is called. This technology ensures that our printers have to intervene much less and we can keep printing uninterrupted. Reduced setup times, less write-in and big time savings: we’ll make sure you’re at your beck and call!

The color quality of your printing is much more intense

Speed is one thing, beauty another. Fast curing ensures unparalleled print quality. In a traditional drying process, some ink always penetrates the paper. As a result, colors lose strength and may even look somewhat dull. Not at LE UV curing. There is no ink absorption, making colors much deeper, more powerful and brighter. The color contrast is much stronger, making your printing really shine!

You have much more choice of materials

Whatever paper you have in mind, coated or uncoated, almost all can be done. Printing with LE UV offset can be done on an awful lot of materials: Paper with a high grammage or just a low, and even uncoated paper we can print on. Pretty much anything is possible. So feel free to think out of the box and let your creativity run wild!

Is your project suitable for offset printing?

Offset or digital? So which choice is best for your project? That depends on a lot of things. For small runs, for example, digital printing can be cheaper and you can still get very nice results. The difference with offset is barely visible to the naked eye. So when do we recommend offset? For large print runs such as books, magazines, catalogs and posters, it is an absolute value!
