Getting Creative with UV Printing

Turn Plain to AMAZING with Wood-Look Printing

UV Printing is a versatile printing technique that can be used to refinish almost any material. In this case, it’s been used to completely change the look of a retail “Open” sign. UV printing allows for a wide range of colors and textures to be printed onto the sign, giving it the appearance of a high-end or exotic wood grain.
