A magic trick to trigger communication

sales promotion

You want to create a communication opportunity to promote your products at exhibitions, events and stores, but sales information tends to be avoided. Trick-printed signs and displays can be used to create an opportunity for communication by attracting people's interest with unexpectedness like a magic trick. Trick print signs and displays also have the advantage of being able to communicate information using the signs and displays.

Visualization is evidence.

The UV-cutting function of the product, which cannot be proven by verbal or written descriptions alone, can be confirmed visually, thus gaining trust and confidence. Because it is printed, it is possible to communicate the evidence of UV cut effects at the same time as promotion.

About the TRICK PRINT® series (Solar Print and Black Light Print)

SO-KEN's original special inks and special processing are used to create a unique and cutting-edge printing technology that causes "surprise" and "fun".

There are two types of changeable printing using full-color ink that reacts to ultraviolet rays. Each of them has different characteristics, so please choose the one that best suits your application and purpose.

solar print

This is a printing technology that is invisible in normal light, but produces full color when exposed to sunlight or UV light.

SOLAR PRINT is suitable for expressions that change slowly. 

You want to create an expression that gradually changes as it is irradiated with ultraviolet rays. In such cases, SOLAR is recommended. It can provide a simulated experience where the state of the image really changes with UV light. It takes about 3 to 5 minutes for the color to fade.

UV care promotion

This is a printing technology that is invisible in normal light, but emits full-color light when irradiated with a black light (UV).

BLACKLIGHT PRINT is suitable for expressions that require instant changeover.

I want to switch on/off instantly. I want to see immediately when the UV light is on and when it is off. You want to save time. In such cases, black light printing is recommended. You can see the change in an instant, and it does not take time for the color to disappear like SOLAR PRINT.

UV care promotion

It is also used by car dealers and eyeglass stores that deal in UV-cut glass.

Easy comparison with other products for UV protection

You can compare how well your products block UV rays.

As a promotion for UV cut related products, it is possible to verify in various forms such as glass, film, lens, cream, and liquid.

A print with a mechanism that changes the picture when exposed to UV light is placed, and products with and without UV protection are placed on it.
Example of verification using a BLACKLIGHT PRINT that changes to a design with bloodshot eyes when reacting to ultraviolet light.
