Pad Printing is often the most economical, precise, and repeatable decorating method for industrial and medical device components.
Components are rarely flat. Rather, the surface to be decorated is often curved, recessed, or raised. Silicone pad transfer is a proven method to decorate non-flat surface areas precisely and repetitively.
Liberty Clark staff of artisans has, on average, six years of pad printing experience. We like what we do, and we’re very good at it!
Occasionally, screen printing may be more practical and economical than pad printing. If your product requires a large surface area to be decorated then we may suggest this decorating method. Screen printing is most practical when the surface area is flat or cylindrical.
Digital direct-to-substrate may be a cost effective decorating solution for short-run, or prototype projects that require multiple artwork colors. Call us to discuss.
Cylindrical Screen Printing
Our “cylinder” screen printing machines may also be tooled to screen print tapered cylinders.
We have successfully screen printed syringes, small plastic tubing, and many consumer products.
Effective and stylish method to decorate raised text, bezels, and housing borders. If your component has a raised surface that requires decorating, let’s talk.
Heat transfer may be suitable and economical for multi-color decorating needs. The process involves graphic images transferred to a surface material using heat and pressure.
Images are created to “chemically” bond to the target surface. Our heat transfer images have been successfully applied to the following substrates:
- Acrylic (cast and molded)
- Polyphenylene (PPO)
- Cellulose Butyrate (CAB)
- Polyphenylene Sulfide
- Styrene (GP & high impact)
- Polyamides (nylon)
- Painted Surfaces (wood, metal, etc.)
- Polyester (including glass filled)
