What is Pad Printing?
Pad printing is a wet process in which three-dimensional plastic, glass, metal, rubber, or wooden part can be decorated. The image is transferred to the part from ink filled etched images in a printing plate by way of a silicone pad. Pad printing can successfully decorate three-dimensional parts because while transferring the image to the part, the silicone pad wraps around or adapts to the shape of the part without distorting the image, given some image size restrictions. Extremely fine detail and tight multicolor registration are readily achievable with pad printing.
We provide custom pad printing services throughout the United States and Canada. No matter where our customers are located, they have come to rely on our expert staff and our knowledge of the pad printing process.
