Full Inkcups Pinnacle Award Winner Details

  • The XJET Switch flatbed UV printer is designed for full-color direct-to-reusable bag applications, hard goods, and more. This printer swiftly and expertly decorates clear PVC tote bags, otherwise referred to as stadium bags, which many major venues in the United States mandate as the only bags permitted within the premise.
  • Nano Pin Curing enables printing on transparent cylindrical vessels such as Triton containers, wine and spirit bottles, candle holders and assorted glassware without the need to fill the vessel with a UV-blocking substance. This new technology enables simplified digital printing on vessels and significantly reduces wear and tear on print heads, improves production processes, and ensures that your product remains uncontaminated on the inside.
  • Lustre Effect is a print technique made possible by software technology that allows for a metallic appearance on aluminum, stainless, and other metal cylindrical vessels. The Lustre Effect allows for a range of hundreds of metallic shades for unique and eye-catching graphics. For limitless creativity, it also offers unlimited embellishment features to create gradations, dimensions, hidden and subtle watermarks, and patterns with metallic colors.
