How to Print Your Business Cards
Types of printing used to print business cards
CNC LASER MACHINE PRINTING
Uv printing is mostly used to print on a large scale with color print. Uv printer is like ordinary printers. This printer is used to print on objects instead of paper, we can directly put wood or any other object in the printing slot and give commands to the printer to print a particular design.
CNC laser machine printing
CNC laser machine used for engraving and cutting. We just give the design to the printing machine along with the command to engrave or cut according to design. The machine gives out very accurate results of laser engraved wood business cards and printing work looks pretty. It's the most common printing on the wood business card
Acetone is a chemical fluid that replicates the design on wood after applying to the printed sheet. A printed sheet is paper with the client's design placed on the wood and then acetone acid is poured on it which embeds the design on the wood. It has instant results but the quality is not very good
Polycrylic is a glue-type fluid that works like that of acetone but produces very impressive and clear results. However, its processing takes more time than acetone printing and is not economical for large scale production
Gel medium is almost similar to polyacrylic and also gives similar results. It takes more time to process than but it's difficult to scratch it from the wood
