We are excited to announce that CBS has recently expanded our product portfolio to include printing technology designed for signage, wraps, and other outdoor applications.
This new printing technology comes with a diverse selection of sizes and specifications to ensure solutions that fit the exact desired need of each client. These printers are available with UV, Solvent, and Eco-Solvent inks and come in a wide range of sizes ranging from 48 to 104 inches.
This technology has largely been used by print shops because in house solutions were hard to come by. However, CBS now has solutions for those businesses seeking an alternative to outsourcing. By bringing these types of printing projects in house, businesses can now reproduce what they need, when they need it, at a much more cost effective price point when compared to expensive print shops.
Since this new technology comes with a variety of options regarding size and ink types, it is vital to understand what the different inks do and how they are best utilized.
Eco-Solvent solutions are fantastic since they have less odor and can be used in any space with good ventilation. Indoor signage and graphics are common places where this style of printing is used.
Solvent inks are not made from mineral bases and tend to be fade proof, water proof, and resilient to scratches and contact. These inks are more typical for anything exposed to harsher elements or spending long amounts of time outside. Eco-Solvent solutions tend to be more ideal for indoor environments where Solvent solutions are more suitable for being outdoors.
UV ink is an extremely resilient solution and can last longer than either solvent ink in sunlight. The UV ink application process actually uses UV lights inside the printer to dry the ink immediately. Since this ink is made of different chemical compounds it can last longer outside while still remaining waterproof and resilient.
Each of these solutions is now available from CBS and our Wide Format Specialist can walk you through how to select the perfect solution for you or your business.
