Sublimation printing is a modern printing technique that is safe and friendly for the environment. With its production there are no dangerous substances, making it an ideal way to care for the environment. This technology perfectly meets the requirements of today’s market – fast and easy production. Print (CMYK) is made with special inks on transfer paper and then under high pressure and temperature is transmitted to the object covered with polyester paint. Each printing needs to be with the pressure, temperature and time. For example, for printing on aluminum gadgets using heat presses we use the pressure of 5000 Pa at a temperature of 195 ° C in about 40 seconds.
Silk printing is one of the oldest printing techniques that is often called with several different names such as screen printing. Silk printing technique is versatile method to print lanyards as by special inks many styles can be made. This printing technology is designed for printing on flat surfaces. The main part of the process requires a dense mesh or stretch mesh around a rigid frame and a mask the sites to be unprintable. Printing is done by setting a screen placed on a top of the desired material, pressing the ink directly on the print substrate. Some special inks demand an undercoat for the highest quality. Final part is that the printed piece is heat dried carefully.
Reflective print is made with the same technique than silk printing but a special ink is required to have the reflective result. With the reflective ink it is very important to concentrate on molding as different materials demand little bit different kind on molding. For some material, such as nylon or polyester fabrics, it is best to print over an under base in order to obtain the cleanest print. We always test the print for adhesion. This technology demand time as to achieve the optical effect it usually requires a second run. In production time is needed to let the ink dry properly before the second run.
Fluorescent is a printing technique similar to silk printing. To have the glow-in-the-dark effect, a special ink that has coarse pigments is required. The ink is available in white. This technology demand time as to achieve the optical effect it usually requires a second run. In production time is needed to let the ink dry properly between the runs.
On Jacquard woven technique the logo is part of the ribbon as it is sewed in the material during manufacture process. Jacquard weaving is made on weaving machines programmed to raise a thread independently of the other, which gives us much greater flexibility in weaving and offers the highest quality control of the performed model. This mechanism is probably one of the most important weaving inventions, which at high process automation allows for an unlimited variety of design performed. Despite the automation this is an technology that still demand more time for the manufacture process. 3 to 4 colors can be woven and any pantone can be matched.
The technique of the model applied on the surface of the object using a laser. The laserengraver can be placed on objects made of different materials such as metals, ceramics, glass, plexiglass, polyethylene, silicone, leather, rubber, wood and many others.
Golden or silver like color, soft in touch printing effect. Perceptible under the finger. Recommended to be used in simple, but extraordinary projects. Can be combined with max 2 other printing colors.
