The Allure of UV-LED Printing on Glass

If you are not currently UV printing on glass, I recommend doing a few test products to see how your customer base responds. UV-printed glass products have a higher quality feel that is hard to achieve with acrylic or cut vinyl applied to glass substrates. If you take the time to learn about UV printing on glass, you might end up needing another UV printer to handle all of the opportunities. 

Why should you UV print glass? Because a majority of your competitors don’t do it. With UV print, it’s easy to do if you get the proper equipment that is set up and dialed in for glass.
