Large-scale inkjet printing has made amazing strides in the past several years. There are a number of large format and industrial printers available on the market today, including products from Roland, Mimaki, Mutoh, Epson, HP, and other larger industrial providers.

As the cost of digital inkjet printing comes down, it is beginning to replace older technologies and open up new avenues for innovation and widespread use of printed media. Most promising is perhaps the advancement and increased adoption of UV curable inkjet technology, which has the potential to increase the speed and accuracy at which products like decorative window films are printed.

Furthermore, UV curable inkjet technology removes the need to use solvents, which removes the issue of noxious fumes. UV curable inks can be applied to a variety of substrates, even uncoated ones, which makes them ideal for a number of applications. For example, they can be applied to wood and glass, or to materials like vinyl and other plastics which make up decorative window films.

As a printer, there are numerous window film options available when selecting products to use as part of your wide format and large-scale printing services. You want to familiarize yourself with the products that your clients want the most. This includes the latest in inkjet printable window film, including scratch-resistant window film, UV protective window film, and both temporary and permanent window film.
