IMPRINTING A ship needs a name
A ship does not set sail without having a name. With promotional gifts, it is the same as with a ship. A good product needs a good name. No other medium presents your advertising message as good as a promotional item. Through individual finishing, a ballpoint pen becomes a personal and valuable advertising gift.
Just as the figurehead is an impressive trademark at the bow of a sailing ship, we make sure you impress your customers. With our finishing service, advertising will have a lasting effect. We will gladly advise you on the different finishing and printing techniques and tell you which technique best suits your product. Finishing can be applied to almost all of the promotional items in our range.
PRINTING METHODSRide the wave of success
We create pressure so that a promotional message creates high waves. As a printing specialist, we are happy to finish a promotional product with customer logos, company names, and advertising slogans.
We tell you precisely which finishing technique works on which material. We print your advertising item with silk-screen, tampon, or transfer print. We implement pin sharp laser engraving for you. For expressive advertising messages on faux leather, we recommend embossing. We also embroider textiles and caps for you. Umbrella handles are individualized through doming. We offer additional printing specials, too. Flexographic printing makes umbrellas radiate and sees to more safety in traffic. And thanks to digital printing, we implement your advertising photo-realistically.
LASER ENGRAVINGPrecise and permanent personalization
A method using a laser beam to engrave a logo into nearly any material. A computer controlled process ensures a pinpoint reproduction. The final result is always dependant on the material surface. A colour replica is not possible.
EMBOSSINGImpress all others
A stamp is used to press a logo into the surface of an article. Coloured and metal-looking (in gold and silver) embossing are possible through special foils. This technique is mostly used on leather and synthetic leather products.
SILKSCREEN PRINTTechnique with high colour intensity
For silkscreen print, a screen is made impermeable in areas not to be printed through a photochemical process. The promotional item is placed under the screen and printed on the areas where the screen is permeable. The colour is pushed through the holes and applied to the product. When using coloured logos it is recommended to add a white base coat to ensure brilliant colours. This method is ideal for flat surfaces, such as textiles or segments of umbrellas.
TRANSFER PRINTImpressive colour reproduction
A heat press, consisting of a heating plate and base plate, is used to apply the logo/ picture/ text, pre-printed on thermal paper, onto the item. Beforehand, the thermal paper was imprinted through silkscreen or digital print.
TAMPON PRINTImpressive colour reproduction
A template of the logo is made and filled with the desired colour of ink. Then the colour is transferred directly onto the article with a silicone pad. As this pad is made of flexible silicone, almost all surfaces can be printed – including uneven surfaces.
An electrolytic process – a piece of felt is soaked in corrosive liquid and is pressed through a stencil onto the product. Once the liquid comes into contact with the article the desired imprint is etched into the surface. The advantage is that the imprint is very robust.
EMBROIDERYFinishing with needle and thread
A digitally controlled process in which a computer steers a needle and thread to embroider a surface. As many as 10 colours can be used in one embroidery procedure. This robust form of refinement can be used on all textiles. The logo must be provided in order to determine the number of stitches and perform an accurate cost calculation.
DIGITAL TRANSFERBlaze of colour
Digital transfer works in two steps. First, a special thermo paper is imprinted digitally (see passage "direct print") and cut to size. In a second step, the logo / picture / text is then printed onto the product under pressure in a heat press.
DIRECT PRINTPin sharp individualization
With direct print, single drops of ink are fired through nozzles directly onto the item or paper (similar to an inkjet printer). Normally, colours that dry with UV light are used for high brilliance. Suitable for low quantity and flat items.
DOMINGAdvertising in 3D
The doming sticker is made of synthetic resin and a sticker with the company logo. The clear resin is fitted precisely to the logo print, protects the print and gives the logo a 3D effect. The convex sticker is perfect for advertising on rough or hard materials, such as umbrella handle.
