Below you can see Our various product printing techniques

Pad Printing

Pad printing is a technique where silicone stamps are used to print the logo on the item. With this technique you achieve a sharper finish and a perfect colour matching (PMS) is achievable. Pad printing is the most used printing technique whereby a logo is engraved onto a metal plate and then transferred onto the item using a silicone pad, as ink does not adhere to silicone. Like Screen printing each colour must be printed separately.

Almost any kind of shape or item in the world can be printed by the pad printing technique. That is why this is the most used printing technique in our business.

Screen Printing

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh with a lot of small openings is used to transfer ink onto the item. A stencil will block certain parts to the shape of the logo. The ink is placed on the mesh and then pushed through the mesh onto the product. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens must be used to produce a multi- coloured image or logo. After printing the item is placed in a drying tunnel to cure the ink to the item.

With Screen printing 360 the same technique is applied to a cylindrical item where the item is slightly rotated that results in a round screen print.

If the print surface is flat, all items can be printed.

Digital Printing

pop socket

Digital printing is done by placing the product under a full-colour digital printer. On a special UV digital printer, the imprint is printed directly onto the item. The image is created by firing many dots onto the printable surface, and combined they create a colour or image. Digital printing is most used for printing on flat and even surfaces as the distance from the printhead to the item is fixed. The printer can print CMYK colour mode but also white.

Tara Slevin group also offers a digital printing 360 option on cylindrical items, such as our glass, plastic or metal bottles. This technique is only possible on items without handles.

If the print area is flat and has an even surface, all items can be printed.

Screen Transfer

With Screen transfer the logo is first printed on special silicon-based paper instead of directly onto the item. The colours are printed one by one, on a white base. After each print run, it goes through a drying tunnel. After all colours are printed, a layer of glue is added in the same shape as the logo and an adhesive powder is applied. By use of a heat press the transfer will be applied to the item. The heat will make the glue liquid and the pressure will cause for a good adhesion on the item. The paper is then removed and the logo will remain on the item.

If the print surface is flat, all items can be printed.

Embroidery

Embroidery is a technique where multiple stitches are combined to create the image or logo. It is a very popular technique in products such as caps, textiles, or bags. A special embroidery file is created, which contains all details of the work and settings for the machine. The item is put under a large sewing machine which sewing heads can contain up to 12 needles (So 15 different threads (colours) can be embroidered in one run).

  • Backpacks
  • Laptop bags
  • T-shirts
  • Body warmers
  • Other textiles
  • Threads are matching with Pantone (PMS) colours

Laser Engraving

Laser engraving can be applied to items made of organic materials such as wood, glass and rubber or metals (coated and non-coated). With laser engraving the result of a text or logo is precise,clean, permanent and luxurious. A digital logo will be sent to the laser machine. With a Fibre laser (hard laser: mostly used for engraving/marking metals or rigid items) or a CO2 laser (soft laser: mostly used for engraving/marking organic materials) the top layer of the material will be ‘burned’ away. The logo then becomes visible.

Tara Selvin group also offers a laser engraving 360 option on cylindrical items, such as glass, plastic or metal bottles. This technique is only possible on items without handles.

Sublimation

Sublimation is a digital print technique where you can print full coloured images onto white, hard surfaces or polyester coated items. First an image or logo is printed on sublimation paper with full colour (CMYK) printing. The sheets of paper are then automatically cut. These printed sheets are applied onto a product using pressure, time and heat. During this process the ink changes from solid to gas particles which penetrate the surface of the item. Once the item is cooled, the ink is fixed within the surface or coating of the item.

Digital Label

Digital Label is a digital print on a sticker, that we place on a product. This technique is often used on items where no other printing technique can be applied. A full colour sticker is printed and is then cut with a plotter. The Digital label is then peeled off and applied onto the items.

Doming

doming

The doming procedure consists of printing the logo on a self-adhesive label domed with an acrylic resin layer. It is a durable solution and cannot be easily scratched or dented. Once the labels are combined with the acrylic resin, they are cured in an oven. After the curing process the doming labels are ready to be applied onto the items.

Any item of which the surface is flat and suitable to put a sticker on.

Debossing

Debossing is a popular technique for marking products made of leather, PU, or cardboard. The logo is first engraved into a metal stamp. The logo is then pressed into the material giving it a permanent imprint. The material must be thick enough to withstand the pressure of the machine and the surface must be even and flat.
