Printing Graphics on Primacoustic Paintables™ Acoustic Panels
Any image can be printed on the Primacoustic Paintables Acoustic panels. This service is available at many commercial print shops. Check for print facilities that are set up for sign and banner printing, or other large scale print projects.
The panels can be printed using a flatbed UV printer. These large sized printers use similar technology to an inkjet printer you would have in your home, but are setup to accept large, thick materials.
- Flatbed printer must accept panels up to 24” x 48” (60 x 120cm)
- Flatbed printer must accept media up to 2” (5cm) thick, with a variance of up to 0.1” (3mm)
- Paintable panels should NOT be flooded or primed prior to printing. Primacoustic Paintables are ready for color printing directly on to their coated surface from the factory.
