Our printing processes explained:
- Hot Stamping Process: A plate with a mirrored image of the graphic/logo is heated and then applied to the face of the product with a metal foil. This foil acts as a sandwich filler. When heat is applied, the foil is imprinted into the face surface of the product, taking the shape of the graphic with it.
- Screen Printing Process: Colour is applied in varying layers, using a stretched silk screen mesh. A particular colour is squeezed through the screen's mesh onto the work surface (product) below.
- Pad Printing Process: This process is most often used when the surface to be printed is not flat e.g. curved. This method uses a flexible pad which can take on the shape of the surface to be printed.
- Engraving Process: Using a laser or a mechanical cutter, driven by a CNC machine, a word or logo can be etched into the surface of the finished product.
