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.
