Pad printing on drinkware covers 25% of the circumference of the product, making it the ideal solution for printing on mugs and other products that do not require a full wrap.

Pad printing and screen printing are the two best printing processes to custom print silicone drinkware, including tumblers, shot cups, and pint cups. For small logos up to 4”, pad printing machines are excellent for the application. However, when printing a full wrap around on silicone tumblers, you need a cylindrical screen-printing machine such as the S300C. These machines, paired with our pad printing supplies and SE Series ink to print on silicone, make it easy to customize your silicone cup.
Digital printing has become a popular method of printing glasses. For example, these digitally printed glasses were printed on the Gyra® cylindrical printer. With this UV printing machine, it is possible to do a full-warp, 360-degree print. Additionally, this machine eliminates any visible seam. You cannot tell where the artwork starts and ends. To digitally print on glass, you need:
Printing technologies for printing disposable cups include pad printing, screen printing, and inkjet printing. Both pad printing and screen printing processes use the MG series ink for glass printing. However, printing on disposable cups with industrial digital printing equipment requires 270 Series UV LED ink. Once printed, it takes seconds to print and stack the cups.
Advances in digital printing have made it possible to easily print on tapered and straight-walled stemless wine glasses. The Gyra® cylindrical printing machine prints a complete 360-degree wrap in full color around these drinkware products. Like mixing glasses, the 314 UV ink for glass is the best ink for drinkware printing applications. Lastly, remember to always use the G1 UV adhesion promoter before digitally printing on glass.
Printing stainless steel tumblers are excellent promotional product giveaway items. Many people use these stainless-steel travel mugs every day, from the gym to the office. As a result, these are perfect for companies to enhance their brands. They are not only visible to everyone, but they are also durable.
Pad printing machines deliver excellent one- or two-color prints. Screen printing machines, on the other hand, deliver excellent results for simple one- or two-color prints. These printing processes deliver high gloss prints when paired with MG Series ink for drinkware printing stainless steel tumblers.
In cases where contract decorators want to print full-wrap, top-to-bottom prints, there is the Gyra cylindrical digital printing machine. Additionally, this printing machine not only prints full wrap on drinkware but is also capable of printing gradients. Additionally, it is also possible to imitate an engraved print. Like glass, stainless steel requires a UV adhesion promoter to pretreat stainless steel. This application uses the M74F UV Adhesion promoter for metals.
Printing on powder-coated metals is not easy because of adhesion challenges. As a result, Boston Industrial Solutions, Inc., has formulated the M87 primer and 314 ink series to enhance UV ink adhesion on coated metals. Prior to printing on powder-coated metals, apply the M87 metal primer, wait for 1 minute, and then print.
Many breweries, bars, and restaurants brand their barware. The MG series inks for screen and pad printing deliver outstanding, durable prints on these products. This ink series is not only excellent on glass and metal, but it is also an excellent ink for ceramic printing. Once fully cured, the MG series has excellent dishwasher resistance. For 2-color custom print barware, use the M2150 2-color pad printer with the MG Series ink. Also consider our pad printing supplies—ink cup rings, inkcups, silicone pad printing pads, electra blue laser plates, and pad printing solvents.
