Flatbed Printing Guide

What can it do?
Produces top quality wide format inkjet printwork for indoor and outdoor applications on rigid substrates such as glass, wood, dibond (aluminium faced substrate), acrylic, mirrored acrylic, exhibition panels.

How do I send work?
You will need to upload your work via SnoWhite choosing the generic flatbed option and then supply your chosen material for printing to Creative Services Centre.

It is advised that students discuss their ideas with the CSC technicians prior to purchasing materials to ensure the desired results are achievable.

  • Materials must be 100% flat with no warping.
  • Artwork that goes fully to the edge of the material will require bleed.
  • White Ink must be 100% magenta in the artwork or a labelled spot colour

What is bleed?
Bleed is the extra area outside of a finished document that designers allow if they want images butted up to the edge of the page. 5mm is ideal for flatbed printing.
