questions about pad printing

Posted on Sat, 29 Jan 2005 at 21:29



Hello!

I am a screen printer considering buy a 1 color pad printer to expand my business. I was wondering:

1) Are there any books or web sites that might help me plan for this purchase?

2) Can anyone direct me to sites with a good variety of wholesales products? I'm especially interested in shot glasses, beer glasses, wine glasses.

3) Honestly, how much are the costs involved in printing? For example, not counting the mugs, to print coffee mugs? Set up, plates, ink, etc.

Any help and opinions would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking for help and not finding much of anything. Same with wholesale products. I found cheap lights and a few sites that sell the printers also offer a limited supply of products. But I can't find anything like shot glasses, wine glasses. I know the stuff is out there, I just can't find it.

Thanks,

Check out www.padprinting.net for a technical booklet and machines, also on ebay check out a store called Dorgar Mugs and More, I have purchased mugs from them, and they sell shot glasses, they also may sell wholesale to you. Mugs and shot glasses may be difficult to print, you are limited as to how far you can "wrap" around the glass, but it is possible.

Good Luck
