Here’s a short video we filmed last week when we printed a new sign on the glass front doors of FramedByOrms with our advanced Océ Arizona 360 GT flatbed printer.
The Océ (pronounced: “oh-shay”) is one very impressive machine, capable of printing on any flat surface, even glass, as you can see in the video. The moving gantry can even be raised to print on flat media up to 48mm thick – in other words, you can print any design or image onto a regular door, or a tabletop. As long as the object is relatively flat and smooth, and less then 48mm thick, we can print on it!
As you’ll notice in the video, the Océ was printing a layer of white ink as well, which offers you even more freedom when printing on various surfaces. In our case, we printed two colour layers for the base design, and then a white layer to fill in the text – it looks great with a back light shining through it. You’ll also see that we printed the graphic in reverse, so that it’s on the inside of the glass when the doors are closed.
