White acrylic sync slates, available for dummy slates, insert slates, time code faceplates and TCi Slates (for iPad), we print directly onto the front of the board using the latest UV print technology and inks. Several advantages are realized.
1. Full color prints up to 5760 DPI.
2. The ink (ultra violet cured) is both durable and virtually impervious to chemicals, cleaners. The ink is light fast (will not fade) and contains no VOC's (will not harm the environment).
3. Superior translucency. Because we are printing directly to the acrylic there is no laminate sheet to block back lighting
4. No engraving groves to keep clean.
Clear acrylic sync slates the options for creating spectacular results are even greater. First, we start with optically clear acrylic that is coated with an anti-scratch coating. This coating will greatly reduce the amount of fine scratching that occurs to uncoated clear acrylic when wiped with paper towels, rags, etc. and will allow for easier wipe-off. The result, a nearly new looking slate board at the end of production suitable for display.
We typically print the artwork onto the back of the clear . We can also print on the back side, or both. Printing on both sides creates a 3D effect, the foreground (usually text) can be printed on the front with the background images printed on the back.
The artwork is protected on the back side by a clear laminate sheet.
There are several advantages to our method of printing on clear acrylic.
1. Increased artwork options
2. Superior clarity, your artwork is not "glued" to the back.
3. Superior durability. The inks are durable enough that a laminate sheet is not required
4. Superior transparency. Because we are printing directly to the acrylic there is no laminate sheet to block back lighting
In addition to the above, all edges on the acrylic boards are rounded over for user comfort and the center of the time code faceplate is removed to prevent glare in front of the time code readout.
So that's it for the boards, mostly.
The marker sticks are customizable as well. In addition to having several standard color combinations to choose from we can customize the sticks with your graphics. We can apply graphics to the inside edges (the edges that come together when the marker sticks are closed). This comes in handy if you want to identify the slate as yours or your companies.
