Why Use Flatbed Printing?

What is Flatbed printing?

Flatbed digital printing, also known as flatbed printing or flatbed UV printing, is a printing process characterised by a flat surface upon which a material is placed to be printed on. Flatbed digital printing makes use of UV curable inks made of acrylic monomers that are exposed to strong UV-light to cure or polymerise them.

Flatbed digital printing is ideal for advertising, interior design, exhibitions, marketing, retail, event signage, trade shows and so much more!

The advantages of flatbed printing

Multiple surfaces

Flatbed digital printing can print on a wide variety of surfaces, which means it is ideal for a wide range of solutions and uses.


Flatbed printing is generally a cost-efficient and affordable solution, as there is no need for additional printing plates or silkscreens during the process.

Better for the environment

Flatbed printing is more sustainable than some other systems, as it produces fewer waste cartridges and produces less air pollution.

Fast production

Flatbed printing is quite quick and speedy, as ink is distributed onto the material while specially designed UV lights cure or dry the ink instantly.

Flatbed printers include an adjustable printing bed which makes it possible to print on surfaces of various thicknesses- from a pane of glass, metal panel or a sheet of paper, flatbed printers can adapt to different material dimensions.

UV resistant and non-fade longevity

As an additional benefit that is hugely beneficial for outdoor banners and signage, flatbed printing offers high printing resolution and UV resistance, ensuring that the colours stay bright for longer.
