Pad Printing on Wood
Our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility provides the highest quality custom pad printing for wooden parts. Our most interesting pad printing projects have been on wooden parts such as wooden Easter eggs used for an Easter egg hunt at Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears), custom mini bats for the Chicago Cubs, and chopsticks used as wedding favors for a member of the Chicago Bulls organization.
Pad Printing on Wood at Unique
When pad printing on wooden products, the challenge can often be the inconsistency of the parts. For example, unlike plastic injection mold parts with part tolerances of .005” to .010”, the manufacturing processes for wooden products typically result in much larger part tolerances. These larger part tolerances can make image location repeatability and image registration a challenge. For wood pad printing, we have the in-house capabilities to be very creative with the fixturing to neutralize these larger part tolerances and produce a great result. We offer both single color and multicolor wood pad printing, providing the finest detail and tightest tolerances.
- Bare, coated, and painted wood parts
- Nearly any shape of wood such as wooden napkin holders and wooden toys and novelty items
- Single Color Pad Printing
- In-Line Multicolor Pad Printing up to 5-color Spot & 4-color process) with perfect registration
When printing or decorating on wooden products, the challenge can often be the inconsistency of the parts. So, when printing or decorating on wooden substrates, we have to be more creative with the tooling to minimize the effect these larger part tolerances. We have experience printing on baseball bats, cutting boards, wooden napkin holders, wood display boxes, and other wood parts.
Is pad printing the right choice for my wood part?
Pad printing may be a good option if:
- The decorating area is either raised or recessed
- The part has complete curvature, concave, or convex
- The project requires a multicolor image
