New technology and new processes allows Bigger Printing to print onto a new range materials

 

The Bigger Printing Company is thrilled to announce its latest series of print innovations, with a new range of printed samples – showcasing some new print techniques with white ink, and some new materials which previously have been difficult to print to.

Shown above, and in the video below, is a small selection of the latest materials which Bigger Printing can now offer, including mirror composite aluminium, hessian, plywood, OSB wood board, floor vinyl, and magnetic sheet.

Below is a quick video showing a small selection of the new materials available to Bigger Printing's clients.

 

A selection of these materials has been available for a while within the print industry, however, Bigger Printing has developed new ways of working with these materials, taking advantage of the latest white ink technology, and the latest RIP technology developments. This is most noticeable with the clear and cast acrylic samples, which mix together photographic white ink, vector white ink, photographic CMYK and vector CMYK in the same print file. Some 'standard' solutions have also been pushed forward, but require suitable technology to utalise them - such as the development of Contra Vision® Applied Inside™. This version of Contra Vision® is internally applied, allowing installations at height to be completed much easier, however, this solution requires a flood of white ink and solid black CMYK on top of the design - without it, the design will be washed out and the whole effect will not work.
