In addition to supplying state-of-the-art pad printing equipment for your facility, Teca-Print USA also offers subcontract printing services. Purchasing a pad printing system is a major investment, so subcontracting printing services may be a more cost-effective solution for your current needs. Explore our subcontract print services to learn how your project can benefit in the short and long term.

Subcontracting Printing Services We Provide

Pad printing is a versatile printing method for printing two-dimensional images or text onto three-dimensional substrates, including medical devices, cosmetics, and promotional materials. The method is especially ideal for applying an image to objects with a curved surface or unique shape. Teca-Print USA offers the following subcontract print services:

  • Pre and post-part inspections: Our pad printing processes can be automated with vision inspection to ensure proper alignment and print quality.
  • Pre-treatment for adhesion: We adjust the consistency of the ink using a thinner that evaporates when exposed to air, allowing for better adhesion from the pad to the transfer surface.
  • Single and multi-color pad printing: Our single-color pad printing services fulfill high-volume orders rapidly, and our multi-color pad printing adds multiple tones and gradients to surfaces in various shapes.
  • Rotational pad printing: Our rotational pad printing produces a 360° printed image on parts with a round or cylindrical shape.
  • Multiple-location pad printing: We can print multiple surfaces of an object in a single-step process, reducing cost and turnaround time.
  • High-volume pad printing: Our in-house automated pad printing equipment produces high-volume prints at a low cost with quick turnaround.
  • Special effect printing: We can apply special effects, including shimmers, metallic details, neon inks, and glow-in-the-dark prints with pad printing.

Teca-Print USA also provides subcontract UV/LED digital printing services. This printing method involves applying photosensitive ink to a surface and curing it under UV light. UV/LED digital printing is compatible with various surfaces and easily creates layers and textures, making it ideal for Braille signage.

In addition to subcontract pad printing and UV/LED digital printing, we offer the following services:

  • CO2 laser cutting and engraving
  • Fiber laser engraving
  • High-quality photo printing for widths up to 42 inches
