Artists and photographers set the highest standards for reproduction of their works: colour accuracy and rendering of detail have to be just right. They achieve this with swissQprint large format printers, leading to further growth of the user community as word spreads around.
Typical application areas
Putting art into words is difficult. So we’ll let the images speak for themselves.
Good to know
Reproduction of oil and acrylic paintings is a growing and lucrative market. 3D scanners capture the originals. swissQprint UV inkjet printers speedily build up a layered relief that replicates brush strokes in minutest detail. Varnish, printed in the right places and with the right gloss level, provides the fitting finish. Only a practiced eye will spot the reproduction for what it is. And its impression will last for years, thanks to colour-fast inks.
Optimal results, reliably and fast
Printing with minimal clearance between print head and substrate is crucial to high quality. swissQprint flatbed printers always operate as close to the substrate as possible. Also when layering ink for art reproduction. How does that work? It's quite simple: the print head clearance adjusts itself continuously and automatically as the process advances. As a user, you can stay completely relaxed in certainty of achieving the optimum result. And it won't take long in coming.
Photo reproductions made by swissQprint fit confidently into the giclée scene, thanks to droplet placement having been perfected over the years. Specifically, it's about the combination of state-of-the-art print head technology with solid precision mechanics and an in-house developed control system. Every dot lands exactly where it should, so the viewer is presented with a harmonious overall picture.
From colourful to monochrome
swissQprint UV inks cover an enormous colour gamut, ensuring accurate colour reproduction of artwork and photographs. Complementary light colours are available for printing fine gradients and natural skin tones. In black and white photography, light black is a must: the supplementary ink establishes a stable grey balance for copious rendering of tonal fade in dark areas and smooth shading.
Attention grabbers: neon yellow and neon pink give printed materials that sensational look. And they are
