Flatbed printing is just amazing, able to print on any flat surface, even glass. The moving gantry can even be raised to print on flat media up to 48mm thick – in other words, you can print any design or image onto a regular door, or a tabletop. As long as the object is relatively flat and smooth, and less then 48mm thick. The printer has white ink as well, which offers you even more freedom when printing on various surfaces.
The Flatbed Printer uses a UV Latex Ink and it can print White, when printing on darker substrates.

Flatbed Printing – Why?
Flatbed printing give you the opportunity to print DIRECTLY onto the substrate that you want, not like it was normally done, by first printing it on Vinyl, and then applying it to the substrate. Also we use UV inks, which last a lot longer under South African conditions. The conclusion is that the printing will last a lot longer, as you have no vinyl that can peel off, inks that fade, etc.

Remember how we all used to try and get the stickers onto CD’s or DVD’s, mounted in the centre and without and folds, or they just peel off again – and pray that this does not happen in the drive. What are the other advantages of printing directly onto a CD/DVD instead of printing a label and attaching it to the disc? The answer again is costs, as you don’t need to purchase discs and adhesive labels, but only the disks, and you avoid a lot of frustration.
The Printer uses quick-drying Inkjet Inks that are specially made to hold onto the disks.
Direct CD/DVD Printing – Why?
It’s an easy, one-step process. You won’t have to waste time dealing with label placement, and you avoid possible damage to your CD/DVD drive or player, which can sometimes occur with labels that peel off from heat, wear and time. Many manufacturers of CD and DVD drives warn customers against using adhesive labels on CDs or DVDs because the adhesive label could peel off and damage the drive.
