The new trend in the field of fine arts is that of using crystal printing to produce photographic images. This exciting new technique involves using a specialised coating to create an image, usually in either a negative or a positive format. These types of negatives and positives are then placed onto a glass plate. A special glass picture cube is used to develop the image, often with a process called photolithography.
The first major boost to the crystal printing industry came from computer technology, which allowed for the production of photographic prints from digital images captured on digital cameras. Although this technology relied on printing through glass plates it was found that it produced results far superior to the traditional printing methods. These new printing methods could then be successfully used to produce crystal prints. The glass used for this process was first made from a different material than the glass picture cube, which is still being developed.
The main benefits of using this type of technology are that it is more cost effective and quicker to produce. By using a crystal coating the image is coated around the glass plate. Because of this the image has a much higher intensity than a conventional negative. Instead of using chemicals to darken the glass, the crystal coating is responsible for the change. This coating also gives the image a higher depth of field than a regular negative.
This method works by passing a light source across the surface of the crystal, which causes the electric charges to become airborne. This airborne charge then interacts with the photograph. The interaction occurs when the electricity passes through a special electric field that is set between the positive and negative charges. Once this light source is passed across the surface, the charged particles cling to the surface like little dust particles. The dust particles themselves act as a sort of stencil, when it comes to creating the image that is to be printed onto the photograph.
Flatbed and digital UV flatbed printing technologies can be used for many different purposes. Many different types of photos including catalogs, advertisements, brochures, fliers, business documents, and other printed materials can be created using this technology. Most commonly though, customers choose to use this for digital photographs that they want to use immediately. The photo can be printed right off the printer. This means that customers can print anything on their custom photos, whether it is a photo album or a custom advertisement.
Using this type of printing, customers can get an instant photo on the spot. There are no delays in getting the photo onto the paper or receiving the proofs. This can be a wonderful thing for busy people who want an instant look at a custom photo. It can even be a great idea for advertising as well. If you want your image to be seen right away, digital UV flatbed printing is a great option to consider.
