Unique Assembly & Decorating offers custom pad printing services also known as custom tampo printing. Of our product printing services, pad printing is the most versatile process that we offer. As a leading pad printing company, we provide a full array of pad printing services – single color, in-line multicolor pad printing (up to 5-color spot color and 4-color process), rotational pad printing, and automation for high volume pad printing projects.

We can print nearly any rigid shape including parts that are flat, round, concave, or convex.  Using both conventional and UV inks, pad printing is compatible with nearly all rigid material – including plastic, glass, metal, wood, ceramics, and most painted or coated surfaces. We are able to work with customers who would like a custom design, and we have the capability to handle large quantity orders with quick turnaround time.

What is Pad Printing?

Pad printing, sometimes known as tampography or tampo 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.

Of all the product decorating services that we offer, we get the most questions about pad printing services.  We thought it would be a good idea to share some information about this versatile printing method. Visit our blog today to learn more!
