There are a number of different types of printing techniques to choose from when manufacturing your new product.
The question is, which printing process fulfills your needs and fits your budget? In order to decide this, we created a free whitepaper outlining some of the most common types of product printing processes you’ll come across when manufacturing your products (in China, Asia, or elsewhere).
Different types of printing that might be right for you
Some printing techniques, like screen printing, are probably best known for use in apparel, but there are others that have a very wide range of uses such as solvent and pad printing. If you thought that modern types of printing techniques were only suitable for flat surfaces (substrates) like tee-shirts or store signs, for instance, you’ll be surprised to see that items of all shapes and sizes can be catered for today.
In this whitepaper we will explore:
- Vinyl Printing
- Solvent Printing
- Thermal Printing
- Silk Screen Printing
- Heat Transfer Printing
- UV Printing
- Pad Printing
- Hydrographic / Water Transfer Printing
- Latex Printing
We have brought together some of our own experiences and multiple resources to outline some of the key information importers need about the different types of printing techniques.
Each printing process has its own chapter and includes information about:
- The types of surfaces/materials/products this printing process is typically used on.
- Its relative cost in comparison to other printing methods (especially those that are similar).
- The print’s durability from that technique, such as the ability to withstand outdoor applications where UV exposure is a factor.
- Precision and quality of this printing process (for example, how high a quality can be printed in DPI and how faithful colors can be reproduced)
- Research on the printing method’s environmental impact, and why the issues occur if there are any.
