Syringe Pad Printing Machine has been around since the 1960s, and the technology has become more advanced and easier to use over time. An easy way to envision pad printing is to think of the rubber stamps used in crafting. An ink pad is etched with the desired image, and ink is flooded into the etching. A large rubber pad comes down onto the etching, picking up the ink. The pad then stamps the image onto the substrate. Like screen printing, pad printing can be done with multiple colors, but each color has to be printed separately.
Pad printing can be used on nearly any material. It’s especially popular for printing on irregularly shaped surfaced, like golf balls or stress balls, because the soft pad conforms to the surface of the object. For that reason, pad printing also can be used to overlay an image onto an object that has an uneven or multi-level surface. The inks used in pad printing bond easily with plastics and other smooth surfaces. Pad printing also can capture extremely fine details in an image, allowing for the printing of clearer and finer images than is typically possible with screen printing. However, pad printing isn’t a good option for process, photorealistic images, and it is generally used for printing on smaller objects.
