For cylindrical parts, we most often employ either screen printing, pad printing, or foil banding. We work with each customer to determine the best product printing or product decorating method depending on the details of each project.
For projects that require a large image wrapping around circumference of the part, we most likely would recommend cylindrical screen printing. This type of screen printing is often used for rigid or flexible bottles, jars, syringes, tubes, vials, or most any cylindrical part. Screen printing also creates opaque images with impressive results and color contrast regardless of the part color.
For projects that do NOT require a large image wrapping around the circumference of the part, we would most likely recommend pad printing. Meaning, as a general rule, approximately 25% of a circumference can be pad printed with standard vertical pad printing without the image distorting.
With foil banding, we are able to decorate virtually any shaped plastic cap, closure, collar or dispenser shroud with an impressive, high-end appearing reflective metallic foil or a high gloss opaque colored foil which is not achievable with pad printing or screen printing inks.
