Pad Printing

From a simple single colour digit on a medical instrument, through to a 4-colour image on a frisbee. Industrial Pad Printing is a printing process that transfers a 2D image onto a 3D object by using a silicone pad to transfer the image onto virtually any shaped surface. Also known as Tampo Printing or Direct Branding this process is the best way to add print to your product or item when a label just won’t work or look right.
Due to the silicone pad having unique properties, it is able to pick up the image from a flat surface and transfer it on to a variety of surfaces including flat spherical, cylindrical, textured, concave and convex.
