Our Silicone ink is made up of mostly silicone because the only thing that adheres to silicone is silicone. Silicone ink is the only type of print that can bend, stretch, and move with silicone as well as withstand high temperatures that silicone is known to frequently be used for. Once fully cured, silicone ink will hold up to anything silicone can. If your silicone melts during the curing process, chances are, your product is not 100% silicone.

SI Series silicone ink can be either pad printed or screen printed. While we recommend pad printing, due to the ease, screen printing can certainly be an option. Pad printing lays down less ink to achieve the same look, therefore ink costs are down and curing time is shortened.
