Printing service

Part of our service is that we also take care of the finishing of your articles. Of course, we adhere completely to your wishes and specifications. In order to give you the opportunity to gain knowledge about the processes and at the same time to facilitate the process, we have compiled some information about the printing processes.

Refinement Procedure Result / Advantages Articles Attention/ Disadvantages
silk-screen printing 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. Articles with a smooth surface: Frisbee discs, notebooks, plastic rulers or cotton bags. If the background is dark, white must be used for pre-printing. Not suitable for colour gradients and small motifs. Low printing speed.
Pad printing Indirect gravure printing. Pressure motif is etched onto a so-called cliché. The depressions created by the etching contain the ink which the silicone rubber pad releases onto the substrate. Suitable for full tone motifs. Different materials possible. Ideal for multidimensional objects and uneven surfaces. Typically for ballpoint pens. Plastic cups, lighters, calculators. Only smaller motifs can be realized. Thin application of paint
Thermotransfer Selective heat generation. Where heat is generated, the colour melts and the motif is transferred. Hop-resolved print quality. High surface gloss. The process is particularly suitable for textile advertising media with a coarse structure, three-dimensional objects and multi-coloured motifs. Halftones can only be transmitted in raster form.
UV Printing Ink jet process. Ink does not penetrate completely into the material to be printed but lies on top of it. Ink is cured with ultraviolet light. Cheap, quick. Suitable for structured materials such as wood, metal, Plexiglas or PVC. Fading of the colour is almost impossible. With High Definition UV printing, colour-intensive, small motifs are shown to their best advantage.
Offset Indirect flat printing process. The ink is transferred to the printing substrate via a blanket cylinder. Offset printing is one of the oldest printing processes in which the ink is transferred to the material via printing rollers. Newspapers are a classic example of application. Printing result with sharp edges and brilliant colours. Well suited for half-tones and gradients. Fast, all colours photorealistic, for large quantities, flexible substrates Films/ plastics, paper, flexible substrates is only worthwhile for large quantities, relatively expensive compared to digital printing, no textiles or rigid substrates.
Thermosublimation Coloured wax is made gaseous at high temperatures. The dyes evaporate from the carrier film. Great colour brilliance and the high resolution of the thermosublimation printing are convincing. Real tonal value gradations without screening possible This procedure is used for jerseys, flags or seat cubes.  Comparatively slow. Print image must be covered with a transparent protective layer to ensure durability.
Doming With the Doming a sticker is provided with a 2-component epoxy resin. This resin is not only crystal clear, but also protects the image underneath and enlarges the image in some way. A resin coating (epoxy resin) creates a 3D lens effect and gives the colour of the logo extra depth and luminosity. 3-D look, resistant, affordable, durable With this type of finishing you can make articles such as pens, power banks, cases, mugs or folders special. requires recesses
Laser engraving/ Branding In this process, a laser beam is used to engrave text, logos or drawings into the surface of an object. A great advantage is the extremely exact and permanent marking. This method of finishing is often used for metal pens or metal knives. A big advantage is the extremely exact and permanent marking. This method of finishing is often used for metal pens or metal knives. Also suitable for wood. Only one colour. no colours can be displayed, no colour gradients, time-consuming
Etching Etching is an inexpensive alternative to laser engraving. The electronic process is used for signing metallic products. The appearance depends on the alloys and is usually dark to grey-black. As with laser engraving, mainly metal pens or metal knives are refined here.  
Digitaldruck In digital printing, the logo is digitally printed on an adhesive film with a plotter and cut out digitally at the same time. After the desired shape has been cut out, the logo is applied using heat and pressure. The digital transfer is done in a high-resolution full-colour printing process. high resolution, photorealistic, high quality, low cost, fast This process is ideal for full color logos, which can be applied to stationery or smooth surfaces such as power banks, notebooks or shopping cart chips. only in large numbers
Embossing A distinction can be made here between blind embossing and hot foil stamping. With blind embossing, the motif is pressed into the workpiece by an embossing die. Hot foil stamping is a high-pressure process in which a thin plastic foil is applied using pressure and heat. noble, durable, 3-D look The type of finishing can be applied to metallic articles, plastic or leather goods. E.g. key fobs no colours can be displayed, time-consuming, high tool costs
Embroidery Through the technique of embroidery your logo is shown off to its best advantage. The advertising is applied by embroidering it into the product surface. special optics, high quality, durable, also for dark textiles Both smooth (clothing) and irregular (hats, rucksacks, bags etc.) surfaces are suitable for this type of finishing. no colour gradients, no small contours can be displayed
Transfer printing This is an indirect printing process. With the help of transfer papers or films, the print is applied to the object at high temperature using a heat press. This type of finishing is also frequently used in the field of advertising textiles. Especially the easy-care properties and the durability of the print show great advantages in the advertising application on textiles. Opaque colours, colour gradients, high quality, wash-resistant. Textilian expensive
Screen transfer printing Using screen transfer printing, the motif is printed on a paper image carrier and transferred to the article using a transfer press. Opaque colours, cheaper than transfer printing textiles and plastics, up to 4 colours higher handling costs
Sublimations-print In sublimation printing, the dye is evaporated into the material of the promotional item. No surface, directly in the fabric, scratch resistant Textiles, plastics, ceramics, digital printing, all colours, alternative to transfer printing time-consuming, high initial costs
Flocking A flock is a short cut fibre or film that is applied to a substrate coated with adhesive. colour brilliance, highest ink coverage, durable, also for dark textiles Almost all materials, velvety smooth surfaces no colour gradients, no small contours can be displayed
Flexo Printing Flexo printing is a versatile and fast printing process in which the ink is transferred to the material via printing rollers. fast, all colours photorealistic, changes of the print motif are possible quickly, flexible substrates foils, plastics, paper/cardboard, flexible substrates low opacity, slightly blurred print image possible
