Padprint

This is another ink applying method which gives good effect on odd or curved shapes. Your corporate design will be applied on a printing block. By means of a rubber pad your design will be printed on the product. We make use of several pad shapes, which makes it possible to process a variety of business gifts. Most of the promotional merchandise that we sell can be processed with a padprint of your logo, text or image. Based on the material, shape and labor intensity the degree of complexity to imprint the product is determined. We distinguish easy (P1), medium (P2) and hard (P3) surfaces to apply this printing technique. This printing technique is mostly used for prints on, for example, golf balls, lighters, pens, usb-sticks or mugs.

Screenprint

This is a printmaking technique that creates a screen using a stencil and a porous fabric fo print your logo, text or image on a product. Areas of the screen are blocked off with a non-permeable material (a stencil) which is a positive of the image to be printed; the open spaces are where the ink will appear. The screen is placed on top of a piece of dry paper or fabric. Then the ink is placed on top of the screen, and a rubber blade is used to push the ink evenly into the screen openings and onto the substrate. Finally the ink passes through the open spaces in the screen onto the product or fabric below and the processing is completed. Only flat surfaces can be processed with screen printing. Almost all of the flat promotional items or corporate gifts out of our array of products can be printed with one or more colours. Based on the material, shape and labor intensity the degree of complexity to imprint the product is determined. We distinguish easy (S1), medium (S2) and hard (S3) surfaces to apply this printing technique. This personalised printing method is mostly used for printed merchandise such as an umbrella, laptop bag or personalised bagpack.

Embroidery

This a processing technique at which your logo, text or image is embroidered on a fabric by using modern embroidery machinery. The price to embroider strongly depends on the number of colours and the total surface area of your logo, text or image. The maximum number of colours to be used is 15. Personalised embroidery for full surface or use of gold or silver cord has an additional cost. This method of personalisation is mostly used for merchandise or clothing such as corporate headwear (cap, hat) or bath robes.

Transfer printing

This is a printing technique at which your design will be printed on a paper image carrier with the help of a printer. By means of a transfer stamp this carrier is embossed on the product. This method is mainly used when more colours need to be printed or when very fine details need to be depicted on coarse textile. This processing technique is mostly used for prints on, for example, lanyards, caps or umbrellas.

Laser engraving

This is a processing technique at which your design will be burnt on a product by means of a computer controlled laser beam. The upper layer of metal products is basically burnt away by the laser beam. The result is very elegant and your logo, text or image can be attractively reproduced. The final colour is determined by the colour of the metal or layer which is beneath the finishing layer. This technique is commonly used on processing, for example, luxurous metal pens, laser pens, key chains or business card holders. This processing technique is mostly used for prints on, for example, lanyards, caps or umbrellas.

Blind embossing

A printing metod at which your logo, text or image will be printed by using a custom made printing block of your logo, text or image. A metal block is pressure stamped onto the product to leave a lasting impression of your design. This is usually done without foil, just leaving your design in plain relief. Blind embossing is not possible in colour and not many products are suitable for this processing technique. This technique is mostly used to mark leather goods, leather document cases, briefcases, metal products, etc

Blocking

A printing metod at which your logo, text or image will be printed by using a custom made printing block of your logo, text or image. A metal block is pressure stamped onto the product, usually with a gold or silver foil, to leave a lasting impression of your design. The great advantage of this technique is the use of the colour foil to provide your product with colour. This technique is mostly used to mark imitation leather goods, writing-cases, agendas or mugs.

Doming

This is a technique at which a sticker is equipped with a synthetic resin layer. This crystal clear layer will protect and slightly enlarge your logo, text or image. It also ensures that the printing design remains non-scratch and colour fast. This processing method is very suitable for usb-sticks, the extremity of ballpoints or as a luxury version of your logo.

Digital printing

A technique which makes use of a large printer to create a digital print. This method enables the full colour print of relatively large surfaces. This processing method is interesting for its price for low volumes and is commonly used for printing, for example, an advertisement flag or banner.

Digital Pad

An inkjet printing technique, for flat and 3D shaped items, on nearly all materials. Your logo will be digitally printed directly onto the item in an extreme high quality. The artwork will always be printed in full colour and the details can be extremely fine.From simple text to high definition pictures, all is possible. Printing is done with a great accuracy, making it very suitable for multiple colour printing. It is also possible to match Pantone colours.Even printing up to the edges of the printing surface is possible, causing the imprint size to be significantly bigger than using a pad print. Depending on the material it can be that a white base needs to be printed first or that the material needs to be pre-treated.

Digital label

The print quality is very high and the details very fine. The prices include any kind of basic shapes which can be made in a single cut. Shapes made in different cuts add complexity in the cutting and the peeling processes are on request.

Once the transfer is cut according to the desired shape it is transferred via a heat press. This kind of transfer can suit to most of our textile materials. Shapes made in different cuts add complexity in the cutting and the peeling processes are on request. Our prices list only includes any kind of basic shapes which can be made in a single cut.

Ceramic transfer

A screen printed transfer is first applied to the ceramic material and then is baked in an oven at a temperature higher than 700°C. During the baking process ceramic’s pores open and the ink is mixed with the ceramic itself. Once the ceramic is cold the ink can’t be removed from the ceramic by any of the conventional uses of the ceramic items. Please note light colors will come out darker due to the backing process!
