Printing Processes

Screen Printing

The most versatile of all print processes used to print on a wide variety of materials. The main advantage over other print processes is that a greater thickness and variety of ink can be applied to material of any thickness, shape or size.

Pad Printing

Transfers an image from an etched plate via a silicone pad onto the material. A wide range of surfaces can be printed – flat, cylindrical, spherical, concave and convex.

Digital Printing

The latest print technology linking computer with printer. Suitable for short runs, it uses a toner based process instead of ink.

Offset Printing

Accurate and economical production of high volumes with each colour applied by a separate unit.

Plastisol Transfer

Indirect printing method where inks are printed onto a release paper and then transferred with a heat press onto the product. This process allows the printing of several colours with close alignment or registration to each other.

Die Sublimation

Similar to Plastisol Transfer, ink is printed onto a release paper and then transferred with a heat press onto a neoprene product. This is a full colour process using an RGB colour format and gives a good vibrant reproduction of full colour images. This process is used for all Mousemats, Trucker Caps and Can or Stubby Coolers.
