Have you ever had a toast holding a glass that had something printed on? A cold beer maybe with a golden print that says about the origin of the beer feels just a bit tastier? Nobody has to admit it, but it is so, for the majority of us. A cup of coffee with your favorite brand, a pen you write down your ideas with, a key fob with keys many of which you use only once a year…All those curved shapes and surfaces were printed on using the pad printing technique.
Printing House Mačinković is most famous for this type of printing. Thousands of glasses, mugs and cups, lighters, ceramic bowls and other articles from our catalogue have been printed here for the sole purpose of putting your business in the market’s focus. Maybe next time while having a toast you will look at the glass and wonder – what are the chances this came from Printing House Mačinković? We say – very high chances.
Pad printing is accomplished by using an indirect offset (gravure) printing process that involves an image being transferred from the cliché via a silicone pad onto a substrate. Pad printing is used for printing on otherwise difficult to print on curvy products made of materials such as glass, ceramics, plastic, rubber, metal.
The most common articles printed with this technique are pencils and pens, cups, ashtrays, key fobs and other similar promotional items you can find on the page promotional material.
One of the main advantages of this technique is that it is applicable to many surfaces, even the rough ones that would make it impossible to use other printing techniques on.
Moreover, pad printing supports printing on items made of many different materials – ceramics, glass, plastic..
