UV Flatbed Printing

With our state-of-the-art UV flatbed printer, Pella Engraving & Sign Company can print color, text, and images onto materials like aluminum and Metalphoto®. We can easily incorporate photos, corporate logos, government seals, and more onto plaques, signage, and nameplates for our customers.

Our team starts by uploading the project design—either provided by the client or created by PEC—to the UV flatbed printer. Material is loaded into the printing bed. As the bed moves through the printer, the nozzle first lays down a primer to provide a solid base and improve printing adhesion. Ink is applied next, then gloss overlays if needed. The UV light follows the nozzle and cures each layer as it is applied.
