Print cups and coffee mugs and design them as a woven material: gladly! But how? There are various methods available for designing your promotional item. Each method offers individual advantages and disadvantages.
Tampon and screen printing are fast and inexpensive printing methods. The motif is pressed onto the cup or mug with the help of a stencil. The easier your motif is chosen, the better the result will be with this printing method.
With transfer printing, the motif is transferred to the porcelain like a sticker. Subsequently, a fixation by heating takes place. The colours in transfer printing are usually slightly paler than in other processes. This is due to the fact that only organic colours are used, which contain neither cyan nor magenta.
Digital printing works similar to a colour copier. The toner in this process consists of ceramic colours. The advantage of digital printing is that you can print cups and coffee cups without much effort. The time required for printing by digital printing is relatively low.
Only cups and mugs with a plastic layer are suitable for sublimation printing. In this process, the surface is heated so that it can absorb the motif.
You can use doming to enhance logos and stickers on cups and mugs. First the sticker is applied to the cup. The subsequent treatment with a special gel creates a three-dimensional motif. Since the customer touches a cup with his or her fingers, this method guarantees special attention. Printing cups and coffee mugs in this way guarantees a positive surprise effect!
Laser inscription and engraving allow fine structures on many materials. When printing cups and mugs, this method is usually only used on metal objects.
The two most common finishing methods for cups and mugs are screen printing and sublimation printing. Here
Through-printing process - ink is distributed with a squeegee on a bead of plastic fabric and pressed through the meshes with pressure.
Suitable for different materials and surfaces. Predestined for large motifs. Result very resistant (good for everyday objects). Pantone and special colours such as gold & silver can be realised well with screen printing.
If the background is dark, white must be used for pre-printing. Not suitable for colour gradients and small motifs. Low printing speed
In sublimation printing, the dye is evaporated into the material of the promotional item.
No surface, directly in the fabric, scratch resistant
Relatively time-consuming, relatively high initial costs
