Selecting the correct branding method, of course, ensures maximum exposure of your logo and message; therefore we offer detailed explanations of each process to our clients.
Different types of branding are best suited to different types of products. The different types of branding we offer are below.
Screen-printing is a printing technique
that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired
image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other
printable materials, which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged
image onto a substrate.
Screen-printing is used to print large items and is ideal for umbrellas, T-Shirts, cooler bags, folders etc.
Pad Printing (also called tomography) is
a printing process that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object. This is
accomplished using an indirect offset (gravure) printing process that involves
an image being transferred from the cliché via a silicone pad onto a substrate.
This can be used to brand gift items like pens, mugs, table-top items, etc.
This is a process where gemstones are automatically adhered to a stencil before putting on fabric or leather. Our automated system has made complex designs easier and faster. It can be used on t-shirts, shoes, folders, leather, bags etc.
Stickers are printed pressure-sensitive labels that have a thick, dome-shaped
clear polyurethane coating.
Domed Stickers are used in many applications. They are durable and their three-dimensional appearance catches the eye.
Domed labels are much more permanent than many other labels and do not show wear; the clear polyurethane substance, even after curing (hardening), is self-healing. Minor scratches or cuts heal themselves and the label looks like new once again.
Several clothing manufacturers use domed labels as disposable items by affixing them to in-store hangers. The hangers are shaped in such a way that the customer will touch the label first when picking up the article of clothing for inspection. Used for key rings, photo frames etc.
Laser engraving is a quick non-contact process that will not affect the integrity of the material. Laser engraves accurately and quickly, product designs or artwork from any graphics software program. Laser engraving uses lasers to precisely mark an object. It can be done in wood, glass, acrylic, flask, knives etc.
A dye-sublimation printer (or dye-sub printer) is a computer printer, which employs a printing process that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic, card, paper, or fabric.
DIGITAL TRANSFER PRINTING
Digital printing is a much newer process that involves your artwork being processed by a computer, and then printed directly onto the surface of your product. Digital printing is not a heat transfer or appliqué, as the ink is directly adhered to the fabric of your shirt.
