MATERIAL DATA SHEET
Single Sided– Clear semi rigid PVC can be digitally printed direct to the face of the material on our large format printers using UV cured inks which offer market leading print quality, robustness and longevity.
Double Sided – Clear semi rigid PVC can be printed on both sides with the same or varying artwork images. Our large format printers allow for perfect registration given accurate double sided prints.
Spot White– When working with colour variations of Clear semi rigid PVC we can still print direct to surface in full colour underpinning your print with a spot white to ensure it is as vibrant as it would have been if printed on a white sheet.
Spot White (Clear Material) – With clear materials a white ink is often required to add the ability to include white areas of a design or to underpin CMYK printing to give it a denser appearance.
White Flood – Clear semi rigid PVC can be printed with a full coverage white ink layer to back up a colour printed design giving you the appearance of a white background. This is popular when printing in reverse.
