Achieve Sculpted UV™ finish with a standard CMYK image and a supporting Sculpted UV™ Mask file to produce this innovative controlled textured print that will ‘wow’ clients and viewers alike!
The Sculpted UV™ technique is produced through a unique digital printing process that precisely registers a clear, multi-level, sculptedpolymer to images and graphics in printed materials. As a result, marketing, point of sale, packaging and promotional materials are printed with life-like sensory perception enticing the user to reach out and feel the texture and enjoy an engaging, tactile experience. For example, a printed image of a basketball would have dimples, pebbling and grooves on it, mimicking the feel of a real basketball.
Key features of the Sculpted UV™ process include sheet sizes up to 20″x42″ with thicknesses to 25 points, full variable data capabilities and an on-board camera system that ensures pinpoint registration to printed pages. Sculpted UV™ can be applied directly onto most digital or offset print with no lamination required. Adding to the forward-thinking nature of the Sculpted UV™ technology, the digital press and associated process are environmentally-friendly. The Sculpted UV™ process requires no plates, minimum electricity usage, contains no polluting additives, and results in virtually no printing waste.

– Imagine the Possibilities! Use images that lend itself to texture and patterns and shapes and lines.
