Decoration Method - Pad Printing

Pad Printing

Pad printing, also called tampography or tampo printing, is an indirect offset (gravure) printing process where a silicone pad takes a 2-D image from a laser engraved (etched) printing plate (also called cliché) and transfers it to a 3-D object.

Pad printing makes it possible to print all kinds of difficult shaped products such as curved (convex), hollow (concave), cylindrical, spherical, compound angles, textures, etc. which were not available with traditional printing processes. It is also commonly used to print inside back collar tags/labels with the ability to achieve fine details as thin as 1mm.
