The printing apparatus includes: a stage to which the substrate is mounted; a location recognition unit recognizing a location of the substrate mounted to the stage; and a printing unit disposed in an upper portion of the stage and coating a printing solution on the substrate, and the location recognition unit includes a plurality of alignment marks formed in the substrate and a camera photographing the alignment marks.
|Fluorescent phase change ink compositions|
A phase change ink composition comprising an amorphous component, a crystalline material, a fluorescent material and optionally, a non-fluorescent colorant, which are suitable for ink jet printing, including printing on coated paper substrates. The novel phase change ink formulation allows the ink to change color when exposed to uv light, reversibly and multiple times, providing an ink suitable for use in security applications..
