In the pad printing process, am inked image is transferred from a photo-etched plate to a thick, soft silicon pad. The pad is then pressed against the object. The pad can wrap itself as much as 180degrees around a small object and ink coverage is excellent. One colour is done at a time but registration between colours is so acurate it allows four-colour process printing. Pad printing is mostly used for printing onto corporate gifts like pens, golf balls, mugs etc. Post-curing is aided by the use of heating tunnels.


In the screen printing process, apiece of porous mesh is streched over a frame. Areas of the screen are blocked off with a non permeable material a stencil - which is a positive of the image to be printed, that is the openn spaces are where ink will appear.
Ink is placed on top of the screen and a squeegee is used to push the ink through the openings in the screen and onto the product.


Stickers are digitaly printed in full-colour and then automatically cut to any shape by computerized vinyl cutters & printers. The stickers are coated with polyurethane to give a three-dimensional appearance. Domed stickers can be applied to many surfaces or heat pressed onto fabricks.


Laser engraving is a process by which an image is marked into the surface of either metal (by YAG laser) or organic items (by CO2 laser) by removing approc. 0.8 microns off the surface of the product. Acomputer system is used to drive the movements of the laser head whereby very precise and clean engravings are achieved at high rate.


Industrial embroidery machines are driven by computers that read digitalized embroidery files created in-house by special software. Embroidery machines produce high quality, neatly stiched, multi-colour designs on items such as golf and corporate clothing as caps, collars and towels.
