What is pad printing
Pad printing, also known as pad printing, is an ``indirect`` printing technique that allows you to reproduce faithfully and quickly on different surfaces, even reduced. At Eco-Plast we can produce up to 6 colours in a single print, in order to reduce production costs and times to a minimum.
Pad printing has many advantages. Here are the main ones:
How it works
The first step in the pad printing process is the creation of a plate, a metal or polymer plate, on which the figure to be printed is engraved.
Once the cliché is mounted on the pad printing machine, its surface is filled with ink, which follows the shape of the incision.
The transfer of the marks and colors on the chosen object is carried out through a pad, generally rubber or silicone, which, pressed on the cliché, takes the ink and then, again pressed on the product to be customized, releases it along the shape and lines of the object itself.

The color passes onto the substrate through a microperforated film. Only part of the pigment passes through the mask and is deposited on the object, following the geometry of the perforation.
Hot stamping is a printing process that transfers pigment from a colored film to an object. It combines heat and pressure and is applicable on all surfaces.
We produce films of all formats in-house for the production and making of cliches using professional bromographs.
