What is pad printing?

Pad printing is a printing technique where a flexible silicone cassette is used to transfer ink from an engraved base plate (cliché) to the product or material.

This process is popular for printing on small and irregular objects.

In pad printing, we create the ink impression by printing on a silicone pad over an engraved base plate containing ink. The silicone of the pad makes it very flexible and this is the key to the success and popularity of pad printing.

How does pad printing work?

The required design/pattern/logo is engraved on the base plate. This is an essential part of the process: only high quality plates will produce high quality prints. Panels can be created using a variety of techniques, from photoengraving to laser cutting.
The engraved area of the plate is filled with ink. Any residue or excess ink on the surface will be removed.
The inked illustrations are transferred to the pad.

The pad is pressed onto the material to be printed.
The best thing about pad printing is its flexibility, which allows to shape even the most irregular surfaces while leaving a clear and detailed printed image.
