Several mistakes in printing digital photos on UV flatbed printers?

Table Of Contents

At present, more and more people are using digital cameras, and the technology of digital cameras is getting better and better, and the photos taken are getting clearer and clearer. With the passage of time, people are no longer satisfied with sending the photos taken to professional digital shops for development, but instead use UV printers to directly print digital photos. Some users don’t know much about flatbed printers, and they may have some wrong perceptions about printing digital photos on flatbed printers.

  The first misunderstanding: digital photos can only be viewed on the computer.

        Some friends are not familiar with digital cameras and think that the photos taken by digital cameras can only be viewed on the computer. This is actually wrong. With the continuous maturity of digital technology, digital cameras can be directly connected to printers to directly output and print photos. The most commonly used equipment for this technology is a color inkjet printer, but the cost of printing photos using this printer is too high, the printed photos are easy to fade, and the storage time is not long. Therefore, another economical photo printing method is welcomed by the market, which is to quickly develop digital photos through digital color expansion technology, save the photos as files during the development, and then copy them to the computer using a flat-panel printer. Printing is convenient, fast, clear and vivid, and does not fade, and it can be stored for a long time.

  The second misunderstanding: digital photos can only be printed on professional photo paper.

         The traditional printing method of digital photos and the direct printing method using inkjet printers all use professional photo paper as the printing medium to print good photos. Other media are not suitable, but flatbed printers do not. UV flatbed printers can print photos on many materials, such as metal, glass, leather, ceramics, wood, bamboo, cloth, T-shirts, plastic, silicone, MDF, PVC, acrylic, advertising materials, etc., with clear pictures and realistic effects. Printing photos with uv flatbed printer can meet your pursuit of personality and fashion, and you can print your favorite photos on various crystals, murals, etc.

  The third misunderstanding: the higher the resolution of the digital photo, the clearer the printing effect.

        Many people think that the higher the output resolution of digital photos, the clearer and more vivid the effects of photos printed by flatbed printers. This idea is biased and correct within a certain range. That’s because every printer has its limit printing resolution. If the output resolution of the photo is higher than this limit printing resolution, the printing fidelity and clarity of the photo will not be improved; if the output resolution of the photo is If it is too high, it will result in a huge amount of image output data. When the computer transmits image data to the printer, the speed will become very slow, and the printer’s nozzle will also stop and wait for the image data. Obviously the image is too high. The output resolution will only affect the photo printing speed, and will not have much impact on the printing effect. Therefore, when printing digital photos, do not set the print resolution too high. You should find a suitable balance between the print effect and the amount of data to ensure that you can get a good photo output effect without affecting the printing speed.

        Flatbed printers can directly print digital photos on metal, glass, leather, ceramics, wood, bamboo, cloth, T-shirts, plastic, silicone, MDF, PVC, acrylic, advertising materials and other materials, which can completely realize your Personality and fashion requirements. However, some people may have a wrong understanding of digital photos printed by UV printers.

  The fourth misunderstanding: The printing effect of the UV flatbed printer should be the same as the computer browsing effect.

        Theoretically speaking, the printing effect of the flatbed printer should be the same as the effect seen on the computer screen, but this is not the case. The same digital photo is displayed differently on screens of different resolutions, and the printing effect is even more so. The printing effect is greatly affected by factors such as ink, printing material and even the surrounding environment. If the ink brand model used is wrong or is not the original ink, the printing effect may appear color cast; different printing materials have different ink absorption conditions. The effect is naturally different. With the continuous development of flatbed printers and the continuous maturity of printing technology, it is now possible to correct the color cast through the driver. You only need to set the appropriate printing parameters to print out patterns that are infinitely close to the browsing effect. Of course, if there is a serious color cast, you need to check whether the ink in the flatbed printer cartridge is exhausted, and if it is, add new ink in time.

  The fifth misunderstanding: the printing speed of flatbed printers when printing digital photos is inversely proportional to the size of the photos.

        We know that the higher the resolution of the digital photo, the larger the size, the clearer the printing effect, and the lower the printing speed. So many people think that the printing speed of a tablet is inversely proportional to the size of the photo. In fact, this understanding is based on Partially general. Because the printing speed of digital photos is not only related to the size of the photos, but also related to the processing speed of the computer system, the connection speed of the printer and the computer interface, the size of the print buffer, and the size and number of flatbed printer nozzles.

        Flatbed printers currently on the market use computer systems to process print data. If the computer configuration is low, the output speed of the printer may be very slow. The performance of the printer itself will also affect the printing speed. If the tablet interface uses an ordinary parallel port, then printing high-resolution digital photos will often appear to be inadequate. If you switch to a USB interface, the printing speed will increase very much. fast.

  The sixth misunderstanding: The effect of digital photos printed by color inkjet printers and flatbed printers is the same.

        This understanding is wrong. Color inkjet printers realize the color tone change of digital photos by controlling the size and number of sprayed ink dots, thereby realizing color pattern printing. However, due to the limited types of ink colors and the ink dots themselves have no shade changes, no matter how high the resolution of the color inkjet printer is, there will be ink dots in the lighter tones of the photo, so that the continuous tone of the digital photo is It will not be realistically reflected.

        Flatbed printers are indeed different. Now the nozzles used in UV printers have the function of internal heating or external heating, which can vaporize the ejected ink by heating, and then spray it on the photo printing material. Because the heating temperature is different, the degree of vaporization of the ink can be different, and the color depth will be very realistic, so that each pixel can have a continuous and soft tone. So judging from the actual printing effect, the digital photos printed by UV flatbed printers are better than color inkjet printers.
