Flat bed printing

When size counts

Using our Arizona flat bed printers we can print super size at 2440mm x 1220mm (8’ x 4’) in stunning quality. Although most customers choose to print on foamex and correx board we offer an extensive range of materials including:

  • 3mm foamex
  • 5mm foamex
  • Correx 
  • Card
  • MDF
  • Foam PWC
  • Foamboard
  • Aluminium
  • Kapaboard
  • Wood
  • Stone
  • Perspex
  • Glass

Our flat bed printers use UV cure inks allowing foamex and correx boards as well as other materials to be exposed to the elements as well positioned in brightly lit indoor areas. Image quality can be exceptionally high for photographic content where high quality and super finer details are required.

White ink produces foamex panels with the ultimate vibrancy

As well as the standard CMYK inks we also have the addition of WHITE and CLEAR. It's easy to underestimate the impact of WHITE ink but it can open up a whole new range of creative opportunities printing onto clear materials like glass, acrylic, clear vinyls and removable window films. Without the WHITE ink backing the standard CMYK they can look washed out and insipid, stick some WHITE behind them and the colours jump right out at you. This also looks great when printing on coloured surfaces like wood, black & coloured plastics, tiles and corrugated card. By laying down the WHITE ink first you’re enabling the machine to produce the most vibrant and accurate colours achievable.  

Clear Ink adds another dimension

CLEAR ink enables you to get the same kind of results as having a spot UV gloss put on your work without the added cost of having blocks made and large run lengths. It's also a fantastic way of embellishing print giving it gloss detail that comes to life when caught in the right light.  

We can print onto a shape of panel you require

To finish it all we can also cut the materials to shape using our flatbed CNC cutters. This means you can have the shape you want and not just squares or rectangles. The cutters will follow the contour of the image and use the right tool for the material. Hard plastics, acrylics, wood and aluminium composites are cut using powerful routers where softer materials like card, Correx, foam, PVC can be cut and creased using blades and creasing wheels. The cutters also have oscillating knives which are perfect for fine detail or intricate cutting of packaging foam ideal for housing products like USB’s, LED screens and other presentation items.  

Our flatbed printing service is relied upon by the most demanding clients, including International automotive and pharmaceutical companies where we work together to meet tight deadlines for global distribution. However we are just as delighted to take one off private commissions. 

We have branches in Bradford, Manchester, Middleton and Warrington.
