What is a “Silicone Digital Print”

This production method is a CMYK+W digital branding process designed specifically for silicone surfaces.

Advantages of Silicone Digital Print

  • Provides crisp, clear, high-definition artwork.
  • Durable, flexible branding that can be hand washed.
  • Perfect for printing dark coloured products as a layer of white ink can be printed under the artwork.
  • Ideal for producing full colour images as well as approximate spot colour branding.
  • Has a matt finish and does not crack or fade with typical use of product.
  • Only one set up charge is required regardless of the number of print colours.

Limitations of Silicone Digital Print

  • Some colours cannot be reproduced including metallic and neon/fluorescent colours.
  • Unable to print variable data.
  • Minimum detail is advised to be no finer than 0.7mm.

Artwork Requirements of Silicone Digital Print

We will set up the artwork for you and supply an electronic draft to help you visualise what the end result will look like. There are some restrictions we have to take into consideration when setting up your file:

  • Artwork can be supplied in either vector or bitmap format.
  • Supplied bitmaps must be higher than 300DPI resolution at the actual print size.
  • Fonts are advised to be converted to outlines/objects to avoid font conflicts.
