Pad Printing

(also called tampography) is a printing process that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object.

 

This is accomplished using an indirect offset (gravure) printing process that involves an image being transferred from the cliché via a silicone pad onto a substrate.

 

Pad printing is used for printing on otherwise difficult to print on products in many industries including medical, automotive, promotional, apparel, and electronic objects, as well as appliances, sports equipment and toys.

 

The unique properties of the silicone pad enable it to pick the image up from a flat plane and transfer it to a variety of surfaces, such as flat, cylindrical, spherical, compound angles, textures, concave, or convex surfaces.

Digital Transfers

What is DTF, direct to film printing. DTF is an alternative printing process to DTG. Using a specific kind of water-based ink to print a film transfer that is then dried, a powdered glue is applied to the back and then heat cured ready for storage or instant use.  The DTF process is as simple in its working as its name suggests – Print on a film and directly transfer onto fabric. The most prominent factor that makes this process worthy of use across a larger number of people is the freedom to choose almost any fabric. Be it polyester, cotton, silk or synthetic fibres like rayon or terrycot, the DTF printing process will definitely work its magic on them

 

Heat transfer PU Vinyl is a polyurethane (PU) or poly vinyl chloride (PVC) material that is used to cut designs from. Heat transfer vinyl is available in a wide selection of colors and finishes such as metallic, glitter, flock, and glow in the dark.  We specifically use Premium polyurethane or PU film,  it's a fantastic heat press vinyl option which is easy to apply and offers excellent flexibility and durability.  Best for once off garments when the cost of screens are too much to be absorbed into a single print.

BRANDING METHODS

is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil.

 

A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed.

 

One colour is printed at a time, several screens can be used to produce a multi-coloured image or design.
