Digital Printing

Use the whole spectrum of color to your advantage for your next promotion!

 

Photo-quality images and graphics can now be applied where previously only pad printing was available.

 

In the last few years, digital printing technology has made it possible to put a full color imprint on many 3 dimensional items. Instead of a simple one or two color imprint this technology opens up a whole new array of possibilities for full color advertising.  Full color printing is not yet available on all items. Inks for some materials are not yet available. Pictured here is  a sampling of items that can be used for full color printing. Please call us for more ideas and information.

Pricing is related to the size of the imprint as well as other factors. As a guideline, smaller coverage areas would incur a running charge of $0.75/v; larger coverage areas, $1.50/v. The set up charge is $60/v, repeat set up charge is $45/v. Special handling charges and additional production time may apply.
