What is Pad Printing?

Pad printing is a photogravure process involving a silicone rubber printing pad to transfer a chosen image from a steel etched plate onto the desired product. Pad printing is widely used on uneven surfaces like golf balls due to flexibility of the silicone used to produce the pads. The process involves images being etched onto printing or cliché plates, ink is then poured onto the cliché plate and the pad pressed down onto the plate to pick up the ink. This is then transferred onto the product surface producing a clean finish.
