Our Print Process
The Landa Nanography® process offers unprecedented dot sharpness and color uniformity by utilizing 24 print heads per color. EACH print head contains 2,048 nozzles for a total count of 49,152 nozzles per color, allowing us to target 96% of Pantone colors using water based inks. These cutting edge bits of technology separates Landa Nanography® printing from other printers in the industry.
7 Color Printing:
The Nanographic Printing® Process is a digital process in which Billions of droplets, .5 microns thick, are ejected onto a transfer Blanket. The Ink is then dried to form the image and transferred Directly on any substrate
How it works:
How does our printing compare to the competition?
The NanoInk technology creates the sharpest dot image available that lays on top of the substrates vs absorbing into them. This process allows you to print on any surface and capture the same high level results, best imaging, and most vibrant color print. Your output on a premium stock would look the exact same on an uncoated or recycled stock. The ink can print on any substrate no matter if it is on a coated or uncoated board, paper, styrene PET, or labels stock.
We are focused on providing a sustainable process for our production plant. From start to finish many steps and processes have been created and we are focused on making our carbon footprint very minimal to help protect or planet.
There are no printing plates, no waste of material, water based inks and all inks are supplied in recyclable cardboard material.
Just-in-time printing also allows customers to only print what is needed so there is not a ton of waste or extras sitting on their floors as well. At Virtual we have no minimums so this can help teams constantly refresh packaging as the fads, regulations, and seasons change.
