Tampo & Flock Printing
Tampo printing by definition, also called Tampography, is a printing process that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object. This is accomplished using an indirect offset (gravure) printing process, involving a silicon pad and a photopolymer plate stencil. These light sensitive plates are etched with the desired image through a process called post curing. Here at Auto-kit International, each order is dealt with the utmost care from start to finish, manually hand-printed in our UK facility, by our highly skilled operatives to ensure each imprint is perfect every time. Tamp printing is often interchanged with the phrase Pad printing.
Flocking is the process of depositing many small fibre particles (called flock) onto a surface. When applied, the overall finish gives an attractive, seamless, fabric-like coating that can cover almost any surface including aluminium, glass and plastics.
