- Can you print on plastic?
We need to know what kind of plastic.
- Can I send you a picture and you tell me if you can print
on my product?
The only way to confirm if we can print on something, what the
print size will be and what ink we'll use is to send us a sample
of your product, at times we may require more than one piece
and we will advise if we need more.
- Why can't a jpeg be used as art?
Pixels are comprised of
many small squares. The more pixels per square inch the cleaner
it will look, but no matter how clean it looks, the lines will
show jagged and it wonít print as crisp and clean as vector art.
JPEGS having multi-color do not allow for required colour
separation. Vector is ideal for colour separation and printing.
Vector art is made from a series of mathematical curves, it
will print crisp even when resized.
Why canít certain colours print on the top of a
coloured product without having white ink laid down first?
Ink colour is transparent. Ink
may be a certain colour when we look at it as ink, once we place
it on a coloured product as print, the colour of the product can
show through the ink. The print will not be as colourful and
may even appear to be a different colour. To ensure your ink
colour looks like it should on a product, we recommend when we
have to put white down first, to prevent the colour of the
product showing through your chosen ink colour, before putting
your ink colour down. Where possible, we can recommend certain
ink colours (black/silver as an example) that may not require
this process when printing on a coloured product. It is all
dependent on the product, itís texture, itís colour and the
colour of print that is required.
