Advertisement applications

Here you will find some basic information on our diverse advertisement application possibilities. You will find the prices directly next to the product concerned.

Screen printing
Classic screen printing is still the finishing technique which we primarily use for our bags and backpacks. This is a printing process by which the inks are pressed through a stencilled screen so that they are applied to the bags which are to be printed. Screen printing naturally results in restrictions with regard to the colour reproduction, maximum line thicknesses, print sizes and the screenings. Our bags and backpacks are made of diverse materials which influence the reproduction of the screen print depending on the surface and colour. We therefore request you to contact us in case of doubt. We recommend a proof sample for the print release in all cases. We recommend a backing for all products made of polyester or dark materials.

Digital printing
Digital printing is a printing process by which the printing format is directly transmitted to a printing machine from a computer. The printing system is mainly an electrophotographic printing system. Digital printing is especially suitable for bags with large flaps or surfaces which are made of lorry tarpaulins. Digital prints which are produced on our premises are normally provided with a transparent protecting lacquer so as to increase the durability. Our bags which are produced in Europe have an excellent print quality but a reduced quality is possible if the bags are to be digitally finished in Asia. Contrary to offset printing for example, digital printing does not require a fixed printer’s copy (printing block). Digital print is normally less expensive than offset printing when it comes to printing smaller quantities.

Offset printing
Offset printing is an indirect printing process which is primarily used for paper printing as can be expected. We have succeeded in making use of this printing process which is especially advantageous with regard to printing motifs which have a fine resolution, for printing on bags. Only transparent foils are used which are then finished with this process on the reverse. Other than with digital printing, this process requires printing blocks which often makes digital printing uneconomical when printing smaller quantities.

Embroidery is an advertisement application technique which we use relatively often. Embroideries have a very high quality appearance and create a lasting expression. At the beginning, the motif is converted in an embroidery program by means of software, during which the details of the embroidering process are converted step by step as a program. The stitch type, stitch length and the stitch thickness are determined, in addition to the colours and their sequence. The conversion of a copy in the form of an image into an embroidery pattern is referred to as “punching“ in the technical language. We use ultra-modern multiple head automatic embroidery machines for the conversion, they being able to process up to 15 colour simultaneously.

Transfer printing
With transfer printing, printing is executed on the base material which can then be transferred to bags and backpacks under heat application. Numerous printing techniques are suitable for the creation of transfers; we normally used screen and digital printing. Transfer printing often also has the advantage that motifs which have a fine resolution can also be printed.

Domings are generally produced as a digital print on paper or foil. A coating of epoxy resin is then applied to create the unique 3-D dome effect. Domings are of very high quality and add a luxurious effect to the article, while being very competitively priced. The epoxy is very durable with excellent resistance to water and UV-light making domings ideal for the daily use of our bags.
