It is common to find pad print decoration on medical products. This is because pad printing is well-suited to provide the highly repeatable, highly precise decoration that medical brands and their suppliers require.
Pad Printing is a product decorating process that transfers single or multi-color 2-dimensional images onto nearly any 3-dimensional object. The pad printing process utilizes a silicone ink cup to transfer ink onto a printing plate. When the ink dries, the resulting decoration is exceptionally durable. Pad Printing provides precise decoration that is durable and highly repeatable for mass production.
