Adding the UV printer has allowed us to expand materials and processes, as well as production. Items that may not have engraved well look great when color-printed (raw metal, for instance). When looking into a UV printer, keep in mind the size of items you want to print, as well as other opportunities that may come through your shop. I always suggest getting the largest table size that you can have in your shop. Also, UV printers take a lot of maintenance. If possible, look for the printer with the best/longest warranty coverage.
