Printing: Pad printing

Pad printing is one-color printing on the cassette shell. It can be printed with two and more colors, but it makes sense only if exact positioning of one color against another is not required. The second color will be printed over the first one after it dries up. The most common colors in use are black, silver and white. Also we have red, green, blue, yellow, gold paints, which we can mix together.

NB! A dense and contrast colour fill cannot be achieved with white paint. When such kind of printing is needed, we recommend using silver paint. However, pad printing in white looks good on transparent cassettes with reflective liner.

NB! Since pad printing is performed using offset technology, the print's centering may be shifted on some copies within 1 mm.

Is it possible to make full-coloured printing on the cassette shell? Yes, now it's possible, more information here.
