SOLAR PRINT

How to create data

  • Large-format inkjet printing

When expressing a design coming out of a plain surface.

The expression is that nothing can be seen visually, but when exposed to sunlight (ultraviolet rays), color is added. In the same place where there is process ink, it is not possible to add color with solar ink.

About overlapping colors

Vertical lines are printed with normal ink and horizontal lines are printed with solar ink.When the total amount of ink reaches 200% or more by printing normal ink and solar ink data at the same time, blurring will occur.
