Here at Robert Neon, we offer 2 types of Large Format Printing, UV (aka Ultra-Violet) and Solvent Printing. Robert Neon focuses more on the UV Printing because of its benefits in Long-Term and Large prints. Although Solvent Printing is cheaper, it is mostly used for Short-Term Prints. As for Material wise, we are able to print on any material that is rolled, such as Flex Face, Banner, Canvas, Vinyl etc.Colors life is up to 5 years – The main advantages of UV compared to solvent would be the colors life. In Solvent prints, color begins to fade from day 1 due to exposure to the sun’s rays. Unlike UV Prints, which is totally opposite, because of the ultraviolet radiations emitted by the sun, it makes the prints glossier or richer in color.
Higher resolution means sharper detail – Our machine having a higher resolution, would mean having sharper text and most of all sharper details on our prints. Our machine plays in the resolutions of 300×400, 300×600 and 400×800.
Tough Prints yet Brighter colors – Finished products exhibit exceptional stain, abrasion and solvent resistance coupled with superior toughness. Moreover, UV curing allows the printing and ink industries to achieve the highest gloss attainable by any coating method.
Prints don’t flake, chip or peel off – The inks used will guarantee the customer’s finished printed product, whether it is on roll stock or rigid substrate, prints do not peel, flake or chip when cut on any automated dye cutter or router machine. Be it indoor or outdoor prints.
Environment friendly – The use of naturally-derived and organic substances in the ink increases the overall biodegradability of the printing matter.
Dusts don’t stick – And to add, there is this static that prevents dust or sand from clinging to the print. Unlike in Solvent, where is no static, this causes dust stick to the print after a time of exposure.
More vibrant colors – Since UV inks dry when exposed to UV light, the inks do not have the time to soak into the paper. The ink dot is left sitting on top of the uncoated sheet, where it presents a cleaner less contaminated dot, ultimately giving more vibrant color.
