The answer is beyond doubt, UV printing can establish the relief foundation through the repeated accumulation of white ink, and then touch up with color ink so that the pattern is layered and three-dimensional vivid. The embossed effect not only makes the product feel unique but also presents a 3D stereoscopic visual effect. So, how exactly does the UV printer achieve this amazing embossed effect?

The principle of UV embossing printing

· The embossed effect is mainly achieved through the accumulation of UV white ink, the higher the thickness of the accumulation, the stronger the sense of embossed.
· The UV printer prints the white ink layer several times in the printing process, gradually increasing the thickness so that the embossed effect is more significant.
· The accumulated white ink not only makes the product layered but also presents a lifelike effect.
· The innovation of UV embossed printing lies in the combination of traditional carving technology and modern UV digital printing technology so that the product has a strong three-dimensional effect, unique characteristic.
