Printing Techniques For Custom Pro Cut Vinyl Stickers
GoTo Packaging understands how important your custom pro cut vinyl stickers’ print quality is and therefore offers different printing techniques that can be used based on your requirements while ensuring that the whole process remains cost-effective. Some of the commonly used printing techniques are listed below;
- Screen Printing
- Flexography Printing
- Offset Printing
- Digital Printing
This particular printing method relies on synthetic screens to transfer the images onto the sticker material. It is among the oldest printing techniques, and the process is quite simple compared to other printing techniques. A stencil is placed on the sticker material, and then the required color ink is pushed through to the screen. Each color has its own stencil, and the process has to be repeated for every color that must be used.
You can print a large number of custom pro cut vinyl stickers using this technique in a short time. It relies on a master print that is attached to the plate. The plate is then rolled over the sticker material, thus resulting in the creation of the impression on the material. The process is quick and therefore loved by many professional printing services.
This particular printing technique uses a rubber cylinder or plate to carry out the image’s transferring onto the sticker material. It is recommended when you have multiple color options to print on the sticker and quality is an issue. It is cost-effective, however, only for bulk orders.
Using digital printing, you can create detailed custom pro cut vinyl stickers quickly. Furthermore, it can handle smaller orders without incurring a high cost, and it is easier to incorporate design changes since it works similarly to your inkjet printer.
Color Models For Custom Pro Cut Vinyl Stickers
GoTo Packaging offers the following color models for custom pro cut vinyl stickers to maintain color accuracy and print quality;
- CMYK Color Model
- PMS Color Model
CMYK Color Model
The CMYK color model uses cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (key) to create any color. It mixes the three primary colors and then introduces black to achieve darker shades. The printers define four separate plates to create an image. One plate is reserved for each of the four colors that have been mentioned above and lays down a specific amount of pigment onto the surface. It should be noted that achieving color consistency over different printers is difficult to achieve using the CMYK color model. The CMYK color model can’t create specific bright and fluorescent colors, and that’s where the Pantone Matching System (PMS) color model comes into play.
PMS Color Model
Pantone colors are a standard mix of inks that are capable of creating any imaginable color. The Pantone Matching System features more than a thousand colors, and ensuring color consistency over different printers isn’t an issue. The PMS color model is generally used with offset printers, and the CMYK model is reserved for digital printers.
