Fit to Print Advertising, Inc. - Conversion to UV Curing. OTA 1996.

Fit To Print Advertising Inc. found many benefits when it converted from conventional printing processes using solvent-based inks to ultraviolet (UV) cured inks. The UV process is now used in 80% of the company's production and, as a result, Fit To Print has increased productivity, opened new markets, reduced labor-intensive cleaning processes, and achieved compliance with wastewater regulations. The company's managers say the switch to mostly UV inks resulted in a 60% reduction in the amount of solvents used in their production processes, and a 20% increase in business. Annual savings to date have amounted to nearly $25,000 and available production time has increased by 33%. Fit To Print managers directly credit the switch to UV curing with their ability to win a large contract with a leading U.S. retailer, creating the need to hire five additional staff.
