Hop Industries, manufacturer of the durable Hop-Syn synthetic paper, today announces a new trends report about the proliferation, and its contributing factors, of UV and LED digital printing. Fast emerging as a cost-effective and high-quality alternative to traditional printing methods such as offset and flexo, UV and LED digital printing has several notable advantages. The report highlights these advantages, as well as the sustainability factors that are driving print service providers (PSPs) to embrace UV and LED technologies. These include durable substrates designed for UV and LED printing, which are also environmentally-friendly, such as Hop-Syn synthetic paper. Hop-Syn comes in multiple grades, and delivers high quality results on leading digital printers such as EFI and swissQprint, recently featured at SGIA Expo 2017.
“Technological innovations are rapidly evolving for UV and LED printing, and with it comes new applications and choices,” comments Jack Smith, Senior Vice President, Hop Industries. “Our newest report is a helpful guide to understanding this new market segment, and the environmental implications that can either make or break customers’ sustainability mandates.”
Additionally, Hop’s new report addresses shifts in marketing trends, which are contributing to the quick adoption of UV and LED printing. The report addresses the move from a one-size-fits-all brand marketing approach to more targeted communications. It also highlights the increasing demand for more sustainable, environmentally friendlier printing processes, inks, and substrates such as Hop-Syn synthetic paper. Hop-Syn is 100% recyclable, and meets RoHS and CONEG certifications, and is produced under ISO 9001 standards.
