Pad printing on silicone objects is easier than ever now with our new line of silicone ink! Take a look at this flexible silicone keyboard. We were able to pad print our logo directly onto the surface of the silicone keyboard…and it looks great!

The process was easy. We first mixed the SI Series ink with the specified thinner and hardener. Once the ink was mixed well, we simply poured it into an ink cup and inserted it into the ICN-B100. The silicone keyboard required no pretreatment. Once the ink cured it was fully flexible and was able to bend along with the keyboard.

Tag Label Printing on Intimate Apparel

April 14th, 2011 | Author: Stephen

Tag label printing is not just for t-shirts anymore! Here at Inkcups Now, we printed on intimate apparel, bras and panties to be exact. The labels came out great on the intimate apparel!

Tag label printing offers numerous benefits to the intimate apparel industry. Intimate apparel is often tight and form fitting. A tight space is not the best place to put a tag, the person wearing the garment will constantly feel the tag. Printed tag labels are pad printed on to the garment, the ink is absorbed into the material, thus no raised surface of the tag and no feeling of the tag whatsoever. Also, intimate apparel is typically made of a light material. A tag tucked away under the material would show through and become visible. Tag printed labels will not show through the material.

If you have not tried tag printed labels on your garments, your missing out!
