LED UV Litho print is printed on a press which uses light instead of heat to dry the inks.
LED UV light gives the print finish superior quality and enhanced colour which results in impressive end results, particularly on uncoated papers because dot gain is drastically reduced.
Why use this service?
Our LED UV press optimises large volume print runs. A simple way to describe LED UV Litho print, it’s like watching HD vs your average SD channel. If superior print quality, is what you are after you are looking in the right place. Using LED UV printing will help you to stand out from your competitors with a more eco-friendly process which produces impressive, striking results.
How it works
UV curing works by ditching heat and uses light to dry instead.
This instant drying process means no waiting for the ink to dry and using anti-set-off powder spray, which can often create blemishes and markings.
The ink doesn’t sink into materials using LED UV making the colours always appear much sharper and vivid.
Its instant on/off functionality reduces standby consumption between jobs which, in turn, reduces overall CO2 emissions. Plus, being the environmentally responsible bunch that we are here at B&B Press, we recycle all the plates used in the print production.
You’ll receive your perfect projects much quicker than anticipated and be delighted with your order.
ONE OF THE UK'S FIRST CARBON BALANCED PRINTERS
LED UV uses around 20% less ink than conventional printing presses because there is no absorption of the ink into the paper.
This technique uses 95% less power than conventional infrared drying.
"The designer used strong colours for the look and feel of the magazine and I was concerned that we might lose some of the vibrancy during the printing process due to our choice of paper stock.
The equipment and processes used by B&B Press meant that we could use the paper we wanted but lost none of the vibrancy of the artwork. The finish is superb and met all our expectations. And more importantly, our readership love it and I’m getting some really good feedback."

We would suggest sending us a high-resolution print-ready PDF, with ticks and bleeds. If you need help with this check out our Artwork Guidance page.
