Rain umbrellas are personal items for all seasons, and the patterns on them can well show the individual design. Is your personalised umbrella stylish enough, beautiful enough, and special enough? So how are these beautiful patterns printed?
Next, Septrainbow Corp will introduce several printing processes for umbrellas. The most commonly used umbrella printing methods are screen printing, offset printing, digital printing, and thermal transfer printing. Different umbrellas require different printing methods.
Silk screen umbrella: The price is relatively cheap, but there are some restrictions on the color. It can achieve a variety of colors, with a gradient color effect, but the effect is poor at close up, and the three-dimensional effect will be better when viewed from a distance.
Digital printing: The advantage is that there is no restriction on color, high color reproduction, and small batch printing. But the disadvantage is the high cost, and small batches can choose this printing method.
Thermal transfer printing is currently the most advanced printing technology, and thermal transfer printing is also called digital thermal transfer printing. As the name suggests, digital printing is a personalized pattern printing done by the close cooperation of a computer and a printer.
Thermal transfer is suitable for large production quantities and controllable costs. Generally, the color of thermal transfer is composed of four colors, namely red, blue, yellow, and black.
Therefore, our normal and simple advertising umbrellas are all printed with silk screen printing. Digital printing is used for those with more complex patterns and a small quantity. Thermal transfer printing is used for those with complex patterns and large quantities.
