At Customark, we can offer direct printing onto multiple surfaces with multiple colours.
The print can be applied using the following processes:
- Screen printing – most common for panels and plates
- Pad printing – or sometimes referred to as Tampo Printing which is mostly for small components of 3D surfaces
- Digital printing – which can be used for multi-coloured, complex images
- Laser etching – more commonly associated with data or warning plates but also as a decorative finish
The application always dictates the ideal process and occasionally a combination of two options delivers the desired result. All applications are suitable for high or low volume. However, digital printing is a relatively slow process for the higher volume and therefore can be costlier.
Direct printing is often used to cover large areas with print rather than applying the cost of label material, adhesives and applications thus making it a very cost-effective option. The inks are normally extremely durable with epoxy finished which are stoved in place. Surfaces are normally suitable for both indoor or outdoor applications and can be further protected with protective lacquers or over laminates as required.
Our technical sales department are on hand to advise on your specific application and can often answer your questions with some very basic initial qualifications.
