Using the same inks formulated to achieve maximum ink adhesion on glass, we are capable of pad printing a variety of ceramic parts. Whether pad printing a small run of ceramic mugs or a high volume order of ceramic color tiles for a large tile manufacturer, pad printing is a cost-effective method for printing ceramic parts with impressive results. We offer both single color and multicolor pad printing for ceramic projects.
Offering in-house design and color matching services, if your ceramic part is cylindrical or flat, and needs a single or multicolor print, pad printing could be the best most cost-effective printing solution for you. We will test and use the most compatible ink for your project.
Why is pad printing ideal for my ceramic part?
Pad printing is ideal for three-dimensional ceramic parts since it offers clean transfer of the image onto the ceramic part by a silicone pad. This pad is flexible so it can wrap around to not distort the image, given some size restrictions. The image is transferred to the part from ink filled etched images in a printing plate and allows for extremely fine detail and tight multicolor registration are readily achievable with pad printing.
