Why the future of printing is undoubtedly LED UV

Having provided exceptional printing and outstanding service to literally hundreds-upon-thousands of customers for over 60 years, it’s 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 exceptional 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. It’s shaping the future of print as we currently know it, for the better. Here are five of the reasons why the future of printing is undoubtedly LED UV:

  1. It’s Not A One-Trick Pony
  2. It’s Versatile
  3. It Delivers Perfection
  4. It’s A Real Time-Saver
  5. It’s Kind To The Environment 

1. 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 it’s:

  • Newsletters
  • Magazines
  • Stationery 
  • Prospectuses
  • Catalogues
  • Direct mailers
  • Corporate reports
  • Handbooks

The list is endless on coated or uncoated papers! 

2. It’s Versatile

It doesn’t restrict you when it comes to your printed product options. Using this method enables you to print on a diverse range of surfaces - from wood and glass to fabric and leather. No matter what your choice of surface or design - the opportunities provided by LED UV printing are endless.

3. 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.

4. It’s A Real Time-Saver

One of the best things about LED UV printing is the instant drying process. No longer having to wait for the ink to dry and 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.

5. It’s Kind to the Environment

Last, but not least, LED UV printing uses much less power than traditional conventional printing presses. 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. 

So, now you know that LED UV printing produces high quality results for a wide variety of applications - as well as instantly drying and not harming the environment. And these are only a few of the reasons why the future of printing is undoubtedly LED UV.
