Branding

The perfect placement of your advertising message is just as important as your business card. The better the location of the ad, the better the product will carry and deliver your message. We will be pleased to advise you.
The most commonly used methods are pad printing, stitching and engraving.

Abrasive blasting

Abrasive blasting is the operation of vigorously propelling a stream of fine abrasive minerals to etch a surface. This process can be used in order to matt the whole glass, or with the use of a stencil, engrave a desired shape or logo on the surface.

 

 

Digital printing

Digital printing is a solutions based communication strategy focused on short runs, speed to market, and customization of print media. When used correctly digital printing can greatly impact an overall communication campaign. It can be differentiated from litho, flexography, gravure or letterpress printing in many ways, some of which are. Every impression made onto the paper can be different, as opposed to making several hundred or thousand impressions of the same image from one set of printing plates, as in traditional methods. It is excellent for rapid prototyping, or small print runs which means that it is more accessible to a wider range of designers and more cost effective in short runs.

 

Doming

Doming is a computerbased process with 3D effect and photorealistic presentation of your logo. The 3D domingsticker could be placed on your choosen articles.

Edible ink printing

Edible ink printing is the process of using edible inks to imprint a chosen image or logo on an edible surface. This is achievable by using basic home inkjet printers, fitted with edible ink cartridges, to print onto surfaces such as frosting sheets applied to cakes. A new progression in laser engraving for the food market is applying logos directly onto the food itself.
 

 

Embroidery

Embroidery gives an item a high quality look and has an extremely long useful life. Consequently, this process has become one of the most popular ways to embellish textile materials. The desired image is placed on shirts or caps by an embroidery machine. Embroidery is available in monochromatic colors or multiple colors. What makes embroidery so unique is that it withstands laundering, meets the highest quality standards and lasts a long time. Given that the threads used have been dyed in the same manner as the garments, it is virtually impossible for the embroidery to bleach out.

 

Engraving

Engraving/laser engraving is one of the most durable and most exclusive enhancement methods. It is primarily used for the personalization of premium metal products, such as first class writing instruments and cases. During this process, the top layer of the material is removed with great precision by a laser beam, which gives the inscription the motif and coloring of the core material. Laser engravings boast the highest level of precision possible in engraving, providing permanent effects.

 

Etching

Etching is suitable for permanent placement of advertising message on metal objects, such as ballpoint pens, eyeglass cases and knives. The process uses a chemical method: etching fluid is pressed through a wet felt strip through a screen template. Once the fluid touches the metal, a controlled weak current creates an electrolytic etching on the surface of the metal. The result is the permanent placement of an advertising message, which can be performed on metal, nickel coated, chrome coated and nitric acid treated materials. Etchings are highly mechanical wear resistant and provide a great alternative to engraving 

 

Flexography

Flexography (also called surface printing), often abbreviated to flexo, is a method of printing most commonly used for packaging (labels, tape, bags, boxes, banners, etc.) A flexographic print is made by creating a positive mirrored master of the required image as a 3D relief in a rubber or polymer material. A measured amount of ink is deposited upon the surface of the printing plate (or printing cylinder) using an engraved anilox roll whose texture holds a specific amount of ink. The print surface then rotates, contacting the print material which transfers the ink.

 

Flocking

The flocking process deposits multitudinous small fibers onto an adhesive coated surface. Through the commonly used electrostatic system, an electrostatic charge is generated to project these fibers at a high-velocity onto the given surfaces. In such cases, this process is used as a means of product design, for example screen printing, i.e. making logos and transferring them onto a t-shirt.

 

 

InMould

In-mould decoration, a special type of plastic moulding, is used for decorating plastic surfaces with color and/or with an abrasion resistant coat.

 

 

 

Offset printing

Offset printing is a widely used printing technique. Befor printing on the surface, the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

 

 

Pad Printing

Printing techniques will have to meet special standards if you are using a three-dimensional product with complex, uneven surfaces or very unique material characteristics and want them to be imprinted with multi-colored high quality designs. Pad printing has established itself as a popular for these applications. Pad printing is an indirect deep printing process with benefits such as high speed and relatively low costs. The metal or plastic printing die is first immersed in paint, any excessive paint is removed. A highly elastic pad (silicone-rubber) absorbs the paint and transfers it to the three-dimensional product. This process produces good print quality, especially when tiny font levels are used. Consequently, the method is particularly effective when used on products that offer only a small amount of space of advertising, such as key chains or lighters, as well as items with uneven surfaces.

 

Self-adhesive stickers

Self-adhesive stickers can be produced via printmaking or offset-printing techniques. These can be made according to individual preferences, e.g. commercial logos.

 

 

 

Silk screen printing

Silk screen printing is primarily used in those cases where special imprinting materials or requirements prohibit the use of other printing processes. Screen printing is not only a quick and cost-effective method, but also provides high levels of color and light fastness. No other printing process allows the generation of so many color effects on virtually any material. What makes this possible is that paints of different compositions can be printed on media of any kind in variable layer thicknesses. During this process, paint is pressed through a plastic or metal fabric onto the imprinted fabric with a spreading knife. To separate the areas to be printed and not to be printed, the screen is treated with a photo-mechanical process that keeps the loops open in the areas where paint is to be printed. The other loops are closed. Screen printing is suitable for imprinting virtually any material, including fabrics and plastics.

 

Silk screen printing on ceramic products

Ceramic inks are printed directly onto the selected glass or ceramic articles and bonded by baking. They are afterwards scratch and score-proof, dishwasher-safe and light-fast. A wide variety of design possibilities like, for example, the DecoLook technique is available. Basis for quick processing of print artworks are vector graphic files.

 

 

Transfer picture process

This process is suitable for unusual forms and/or complicated colour graduations. Designs are first printed with ceramic inks on transfer foil which is then applied to the article. Through the baking process the durability of the colours equals that of ceramic screen printing

 

Transfer printing

Transfer printing is used primarily on garments and uses preprinted transfer foil for the placement of the motif. As a dual phase printing process this method provides a system to print the motif on the carrier medium (foil) and to transfer the motif to the product via the carrier medium. The second step is performed with the assistance of a transfer press. This process provides great coverage and high levels of color intensity, especially on dark fabrics. A draft copy is a sketch that visualizes the desired location of the print motif in a digital layout so that it can be coordinated with the customer.
