technology

We’ve expanded our technical range in large-format work with the installation of a cutting-edge Vutek H3. The H3 printer is capable of imaging on 10 foot wide rigid board or roll material. The H3’s UV ink means color cures immediately, which allows for printing on difficult surfaces. Plus, use of a unique white ink on the H3 creates striking effects on clear or translucent materials, even plexi or glass.
