Screen Printed USB Sticks
We can offer a range of printing options, including Screen-printing. This is a type of stencil printing, where ink passes through a fabric or mesh screen with a rubber blade, known as a squeegee onto the surface you want to print onto. Here’s a live example of some of our USBs being screen printed:
Pad Printed USB Sticks
Pad Printing involves transferring ink from a silicone pad onto the item you want printed. The pad printing machine holds both the pad and the product steady and then presses the pad into an ink plate, which has been tailored to the shape of your logo or artwork. The pad is then pressed onto the object and left to dry. Pad printing is often used to print unusual shaped objects, which is why we use it for curved styles such as our Button and Pod style USBs.
Full Colour Printed USB Sticks
Full colour is a term which means individual colours are created by blending four primary colours (Cyan, Magenta, yellow and black) otherwise known as CMYK or full colour printing. This combination of four colours can produce millions of individual tones and using these it is possible to reproduce a huge range of colours.
Laser Engraving USB Sticks
However, if you use a specific colour in your logo or artwork it is best to print in spot colours using a pantone reference. Pantone or spot colour inks are mixed to a calibrated and standardised specification. Pantone has established the range of specific colours for this process and all printers hold their colour swatch books. Once your branded USBs have been made, printed and checked, they are then dispatched to you ready to use in your next promotional campaign.
