Tagless Printing Ink

There is no difference between pad printing a plastic and pad printing a t-shirt. This requires a tagless printing ink. As discussed in our previous article what is tagless printing? Tagless pad printing is the process of transferring a image (two dimensional) onto a garment. In essence, you are labeling a textile.  To achieve this, you need a pad printer machine, a printing plate, or cliché, to hold the artwork, a printing pad to transfer the image from plate to the garment, and an ink cup for the ink mixture. The ink cup slides over the etched image on the plate plate and leaves a small amount of ink. The pad then picks up the ink from the etch and transfers it on to the garment. For each new logo, a new plate with the image must be made. In addition, for each additional color, and additional plate is required.
