PAD PRINTING Pad Printing is an offset printing process that involves ink being transferred from an engraved metal plate onto a product via a silicone pad, creating an image on the product. Each colour is applied separately but the detail in the print can still be excellent. • Great all-round solution that’s fast and economical • Can be applied on virtually any shape • Suitable for most surface textures • Favoured for small plastic items like pens, keyholders and torches • Allows single and multi-colour branding ( up to 4 colours ) SCREEN PRINTING Screen Printing is the process whereby a logo is exposed onto a mesh screen, with the blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is then placed onto the screen and a squeegee pushes the ink through the screen in the areas where the logo has been imposed. Colours are printed one at a time so accurate registration is essential. • Cost-effective solution for larger quantities • Provides excellent coverage and is especially good for large and bold logos • Ideal for bags and t-shirts but can also be used for umbrellas, coolers and smaller items like notebooks and folders • Allows single and multi-colour branding ( up to 6 colours ) SUBLIMATION PRINTING Sublimation Printing is a process done by way of a digital full-colour printer which is fitted with special sublimation inks. The logo is printed onto a special transfer paper and cut automatically to the correct shape. The logo is then placed onto the product and heat is applied, causing the inks to migrate from the paper onto the product. • Ensures premium full-colour photorealistic prints • Flexibility characteristics of the product are not affected since the ink simply migrates to the product • Only suitable for white products made from polyester fabric ( minimum 60% ) and polymer coated products VINYL STICKERS Stickers are digitally printed in full-colour on an adhesive vinyl and then automatically cut to almost any shape. • Cost-effective, low or high-volume, multi-colour branding method • Strong resistance to fading or damage • Can only be applied to flat or slightly curved surfaces 11
