Blind Stamp, Pressure Printing

Both with blind stamp and pressure printing, a raised logo, text or other image is pressed on the product. The image is of same color with the material, but clearly distinguishable. Thanks to the relief, the image is also resilient. Can be applied to surfaces that cannot hold other prints.

Suitable materials: leather, imitation leather.

Technical requirements: logos and images cannot be very rich of details and different colors cannot be used. Product surface must be smooth on both sides.

Embroidery

Embroidery is effective, definite and long-lasting way for applying logos or images on textile surfaces, it will not bleach and is resistant to mechanical wear. Machine embroidery is applied on textile either directly or in the form of an emblem. The number of stiches and surface area of embroidery define the price - the bigger the surface area and number of stiches, the higher the final price. Good quality requires base fabric, which will help to retain a defined shape. Depending on yarn chosen, embroideries can also be metallized or glossy.

Suitable materials: fleece, silk, linen, knit fabric, cashmere, velvet, leather, imitation leather. Suitable for products like jackets, hats, fleeces, gloves, polos, T-shirts, etc.

Technical requirements: specify the width of embroidery when placing an order. Maximum number of embroidered colors is 15. As the final looks depend on the thickness of the yarn, the minimum height of embroidery is 5 mm and line thickness 1 mm. Technology requires access to the backside of the product. Embroidering through inside lining can wrinkle the fabric. Embroidery dimensions are limited, maximum size is 40 x 40 cm.

Engraving

There are two types of engraving - mechanical and laser engraving. In case of laser engraving, the image will be burned on material's surface using a laser beam (for example, wood and leather). In case of mechanical engraving, the requested image will be created by using a diamond blade. Different images, logos and text can be engraved. Engraved images are resilient and wear-resistant.

Suitable materials: glass, leather, wood, metal and acrylic glass.

Technical requirements: engraved surface should preferrably be smooth and not rugged. Different materials (leather, wood) act differently during laser engraving, meaning prior testing and consulting is required, in order to assure that the technology fits the specific item.

Foil Stamping

In case of foil stamping, logos, images or text will be printed on the item by the means of thermal processing through a thin metallic foil (folio). Mainly used for creating golden and silver images, other available color options are black, blue, red and green. The image will be printed on the product, meaning it will be lower from the image surface. Image printed on the product is resilient and stylish thanks to the relief. Metallic colors, like gold, silver and bronze, can be used.

Suitable materials: leather, imitation leather. Products like datebooks, wallets, folders, etc.

Technical requirements: product surface must be smooth on both sides. This technology might not be suitable for all materials - the color might not stick.

Heat-Press Printing

Suitable materials: leather, imitation leather.

Technical requirements: logos and images cannot be very rich of details and different colors cannot be used. Product surface must be smooth on both sides.

Pad printing

Pad printing is used for printing logos and text on small items and items with hard surface. Pad printing is one of the most common techniques used for printing symbolics, as it's cheap and print quality is better compared to the factory print.

Suitable materials: ceramics, metal, plastic, glass, wood and leather. For example, suitable products are writing supplies, keychains, folders, clocks, lighters, memory sticks, reflectors, plastic covers, notebooks, wallets, small plastics.

Technical requirements: limited size of printed area, depending on the product and design, the maximum dimensions of printed area are 60 x 60mm or 150 x 40 mm.

Silkscreen Printing

In case of silkscreen printing, the image is printed on the surface through a polyester or nylon surface stretched on a frame. After printing, products will be dried. This method allows to apply images on very versatile range of materials.

Suitable materials: textile, plastic, adhesive foil, PVC, metal (aluminium), glass, paper and cardboard, wood (plywood).

Technical requirements: maximum surface area of a print is 39 x 47 cm, when printed on a sleeve, maximum surface area is 9 x 42 cm. It must be taken into account that prints cannot be applied on seams and, in case of shirts of different size, the surface area of the image must be calculated after the smallest size.
