Today at Inkcups Now, we printed on coasters with the PromoJET flatbed inkjet.
The interesting thing about these coasters was the texture of them. Two of the coasters had a rough/bumpy surface, and the other two had a smooth glossy finish. Both rough and smooth textures would present a challenge to anyone in the printing industry. The glossy finish of the coaster increases the difficulty of ink adhering to the surface and the rough/bumpy surface is difficult to print an image on without distorting it.
How do we overcome these obstacles? Use the PromoJET solvent inkjet! The PromoJET is able to print on both surfaces simultaneously. The PromoJET’s advanced printing technology allows the user to print on rough/bumpy surfaces without distorting the image. For smooth/glossy objects, the PromoJET ink will adhere to it with no problem at all!The coasters were printed with two kinds of images, one in black and white, and the other using 4 colors. As you can see each image came out clear and sharp with no blurriness or distortion.
