Pad Printing process an inked image is transferred from a photo-etched plate to a thick, soft silicone pad. The pad is then pressed against the object. The pad can wrap itself as much as 180° around a small object, and ink coverage is excellent. One colour is done at a time, but registration between colours is so accurate it allows four-colour process printing. Post-curing is aided by the use of heating tunnels.
Pad Printing is widely employed for printing plastic pens, memory sticks, water bottles and mugs, as well as many other plastic promotional items.
Screen Printing process a screen is made up of a metal frame with fine gauze tightly stretched over it. The gauze is covered with a light-sensitive coating, into which the logo is burned. Ink is pushed through the screen by a squeegee and only transfers where the logo was burned.
Screen Printing provides excellent coverage and is especially good for large and bold logos; it is widely employed for printing bags, folders, umbrellas and t-shirts.
Stickers are digitally printed in full-colour by computerized Vinyl Printers and then automatically cut to a variety of shapes (square, rectangle, triangle, circle, oval) by computerized Vinyl Cutters.
Domed Stickers are created by coating a Vinyl Sticker with Polyurethane to give a three-dimensional appearance.
Domed stickers can be applied to many surfaces or heat pressed onto fabrics and are utilized to easily achieve full-colour branding on items like cooler bags (which can only be printed with 1 colour logos) by applying the full-colour domed sticker to a recessed branding plaque.
Laser engraving is a process by which an image is marked into the surface of either metal (by YAG laser) or organic items (by CO2 laser) by removing approx. 0.8 microns off the surface of the product. A computer system is used to drive the movements of the laser head whereby very precise and clean engravings are achieved at a high rate.
Laser Engraving allows logos to be replicated with precise accuracy and is widely employed to brand metal pens, metal mugs, metal keyrings and knives
Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric or other materials with designs stitched in strands of thread. Industrial Embroidery machines are driven by computers that read digitized embroidery files created by special software.
Embroidery machines produce high quality, neatly stitched, multi-colour designs on clothing, caps, towels and bags.
A logo is burned into the product with a CO2 laser, replicating the original logo with great accuracy and in minute detail. Suitable for engraving on natural materials like wood, glass and leather.
