Why the future of printing is undoubtedly LED UV

After providing exceptional printing and an outstanding service to literally hundreds-upon-thousands of customers for almost 60 years, it’s pretty fair to say there’s not a lot we don’t know about printing.

Like all industries, printing has rapidly evolved over the years, and for the last six decades, we’ve lived and breathed these changes. But that’s not all, we’ve also had our finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest industry developments, including the introduction of LED UV printing.

For those of you who don’t know, we were the first printing company to bring
LED UV printing over to the UK

That’s right, we invested in our two state-of-the-art LED UV printing presses back in 2014, and have spent the last few years meticulously reviewing and refining our processes to provide our customers with truly standout results. From testing the inks, to reviewing the paper, our team of specialists have been fine tuning our LED UV printing service to provide our customers with superior print quality, every time.

Contrary to what some people might believe, LED UV printing is more than just a buzz phrase or fleeting piece of technology that’s here one minute and gone the next. It’s shaping the future of print as we currently know it, for the better. Here are four reasons why the future of printing is undoubtedly LED UV:

It’s not a one-trick pony

Unlike some technologies, which are only suitable for certain applications, LED UV printing is ideal for the widest range of projects, whether that’s newsletters, magazines, stationery and prospectuses or catalogues, direct mailers, corporate reports and handbooks, the list is endless on coated or uncoated papers! 

It delivers perfection

If you’re looking for fantastic print quality, then LED UV printing won’t fail to disappoint. Why? Because it’s specifically designed to produce a sharper, more defined finish. The end result: colours look more vivid, even on uncoated stocks and, because there’s no need for a sealing coat, the paper retains its original characteristics.

It’s a real time-saver  

One of the best things about LED UV printing is the instant drying process. No more having to wait for the ink to dry and no more having to use anti-set off powder spray, which can often create blemishes and markings (another reason why LED UV printing delivers perfection). In fact, it’s so efficient, that we estimate it can reduce the turnaround of most printing jobs by around 40 per cent.

It’s kind to the environment

Last, but by no means least, LED UV printing uses less power than traditional print drying technology. Its instant on/off functionality reduces standby consumption between jobs which, in turn reduces overall C02 emissions. Plus, being the environmentally responsible bunch that we are here at B&B Press, we also make sure that the ink we use is recyclable too.


So, there you have it, some (not all) of the main reasons why the future of printing is undoubtedly LED UV.
