Printing methods

Tampography

Process of impression based on the rubber stamp. The tampography is a technique consisting in transferring the ink contained in the cavity of a printing plate, obtained by chemical photoengraving, on an object with a plug transfer made of rubber silicone. Perfectly adapted to any type of shape, printing and parts, this process guarantees a precise and fast marking, whatever the amount of quantities needed.
 

Doming

Process used on small rigid or semi-rigid objects such as USB keys, pens or key rings. The process consists in pouring a transparent epoxy resin on a printed adhesive support. Once the resin is heated and has hardened, zooming gives the marking a very qualitative rendering.
 

Serigraphy

Serigraphy is a printing technique that uses stencils (originally silk screens) placed between the ink and the support. Today, the stencil is made of synthetic or metal book cloth with more or less fine meshes. Its surface is made porous at the printing locations thanks to an insolation technique. Ink is then applied to the whole surface using a blade. The process is repeated as many times as there are colors in the design to print. The tools used can vary and are not necessarily flat (paper, cardboard, textile, metal, glass, wood, etc.).
 

Embossing

Embossing (relief embossing or relief printing) is a printing technique without ink. The letters, designs or logos are therefore only visible because the support was distorted. The embossing is done by drilling or embossing the support.
By applying a shape to (or in) the printing board by applying pressure, an embossing appears on the support. You can actually see a difference in height. The embossing printing technique is applied to leather (synthetic) items in particular and gives a luxury radiation.
 

Digital printing

Digital printing is a duplication technique allowing printing documents directly with computer data. This kind of printing often leaves a gloss finish whatever the form of support used. The applications of the digital printing make it possible for its users to adapt to the modern requirements of the markets: on demand printing and short print runs ; printing with variable data allowing to entirely personalize and color the whole document or part of a document according to its recipient (texts, pictures).
 

Digital Printing

Digital printing on self-adhesive vinyl. The digital printing is a modern printing technology using small and large inkjet printers. These printers use inks with water, solvent or with ultraviolet ink. The adhesive vinyl is a monochrome adhesive film used as printing support.
 
 

Laser engraving YAG

Laser engraving is the removal of material by burning a laser beam in one particular spot. The laser YAG’s wavelength is twice higher than the classical lasers. Associated with a strong power, this technique makes it possible to work with rougher materials by offering a high definition in the reproduction of letters, images, logos, bar codes, identificationnumbers,… The laser Nd: YAG is used as engraving tool on many types of metals, wood and plastics.
 

CO2 laser engraving

Laser engraving is the removal of material by burning the beam of a laser in one particular spot. CO2 lasers used to label advertising objects like the pens use the same technology as the surgical lasers. Despite the use of low entry power (between 30 and 120 W), focusing the ray in only one place makes it possible to obtain the expected destructive effect as wells as obtaining this effect on a microscopic surface. This is why the CO2 lasers are extremely precise engraving tools.
 

Transfer

The design is printed in mirror image on a sheet of transfer paper then thermo glued on the support with a hot press. Heat helps ink detach from the paper. The impression by thermo transfer is used first and foremost for the impression on textile (tee-shirt, polo shirts, jackets, umbrellas, hats…).
 

Embroidery

The embroidery consists in adding a design made of thread on a fabric (Logo, lettering, …).
This marking technique offers a higher quality. It is the high-end of marking because of its rendition and its sturdiness. The result is unalterable.
 

Flocking

Flocking is a technique consisting in printing a glue on a surface on which a very fine fiber powder will be projected out of tank (or other) to form a velvet on the printing area.
 

Sublimation

Marking is printed with an ink jet printer on a special paper. With the heat and the pressure of a transfer press, the ink gasifies and penetrates directly the mesh of the textile or the support. Its assets are a perfect restitution and brightness of the colors, a reproduction of the images in high definition, an impression encrusted in the mesh of the textile and an exceptional resistance to washes up to 90 °C for markings on textiles.
