Printing techniques

Silkscreenprinting

Silk screen printing is a method of printing by which an ink passes through a special mesh or fabric of polyester or nylon, in which some areas have been blocked by an emulsion and others have been left unblocked so that the ink passes freely through them. The origins of this printing technique are found in Asia 5,000 years ago. It is a system widely used in the customization of promotional products thanks to its versatility and good value for money.

Pad printing

This printing technique consists of a metal plate on which the image to be reproduced has been etched. The ink is deposited within the etched image and, by means of a pad, it is collected and transported on the item to be printed. One of its great advantages is that it allows easy printing on non-flat surfaces. Unlike other printing techniques, such as silk screen printing, this technology is relatively modern, since it was not until the beginning of the 20th century that its use became widespread. Tampography is currently a very common technology in various industries, and its use in promotional and advertising gifts is fully extended due to its adequate cost and good results.

Laser engraving

Laser engraving is a technology in which the surface to be etched is heated by a laser beam, causing this surface to change colour, evaporate or burn. The laser engraving is permanent since it modifies the surface of the object to be engraved. Laser engraving can be used on various materials, such as wood, metal, glass, etc.

Debossing

It is a very old technique. It consists in applying a die or hot mould with the shape you want to engrave onto the surface to be customized, resulting in a permanent depressed image in the object. It is widely used on leather, leatherette, paper and cardboard.

Embroidery

It is an ornamental sewing process in which designs are reproduced in fabrics with high-gloss yarns. The design you want to embroider is transferred to a software that decomposes it into stitches, sending the embroidery machine the instructions to reproduce it with precision. Embroidery is widely used in garments, giving them a high quality appearance.

Screen print

It is a technique similar to screen printing, it differs from it in that, in this case, it will first be printed on a paper or similar base to later transfer that printing to the object you want to personalize. It is a suitable solution for caps, bags and similar items.

Digital transfer

In this technique, a vinyl is first printed and then adhered to the article. It's like an adhesive film attached to the garment.

Dye sublimation

Sublimation is the process by which heat is applied to a design that is transferred to the tissue at a molecular level, so that the design becomes part of the fabric. This process is suitable for artificial fabrics, so this technique is generally used for items such as 100% polyester shirts, lanyards, mouse pads, etc.

Digital printing

Objects are printed by special inkjet printers. It does not need stencils or screens, and has the advantage that it prints in full colour. It can be used in various materials, such as plastics, fabrics, etc.
