A-to-Z of Printing: Print on Leather

Leather has always been a highly valuable material. Used in the production of many high-end fashion and décor products, leather becomes even more valuable if you’re able to personalize it with logos, patterns, art, and text.  
To successfully print on leather, your ink needs to become part of the very fabric and texture of the leather itself.  With Roland DGA VersaUV flatbed technology, that’s exactly what ECO-UV ink does by bonding directly to the leather material and taking on its unique texture and form. 
The following examples of leather customization illustrate the many types of leather products you can print directly on with digital VersaUV flatbed technologies.
