If the surface of the printing material is softer, the gap is larger, and the background color is darker, such as leather, cloth, etc., you need to increase the amount of ink by 20%-40%.

  It depends on the requirements of the UV flatbed printer to print patterns, and adjust the ink thickness according to the color of the pattern.

If the color of the pattern to be printed is bright and dark, the ink thickness needs to be increased appropriately, and vice versa, the ink thickness must be reduced.

  It depends on the special needs of customers and adjusts the ink thickness according to the different needs of customers.
