Pad Print - Tampography
Pad printing is a technical term for one of the printing processes available for customizing your promotional products. See it in action, and you might be tempted to call it by another name: stamping.
Let’s Get Inked!
Pads are reused from one printing job to the next, so creating a custom design requires some additional equipment. To create a custom pad imprint, it's not the pad that gets customized, but a metal or plastic plate. This plate gets the logo or design to be printed etched into its surface. This creates a well that gets filled with ink in the color of choice. The right pad for the job then gets pressed against the plate, the ink gets transferred onto its surface, and the pad then transfers the ink to the selected products.
