Successfully printing on leather makes it even more valuable if you’re able to personalize it with logos, patterns, art, and text. To print leather, the ink needs to become part of the fabric and texture of the leather itself. There are several ways to print leather. These includes inkjet, screen, and pad printing. All these three methods are ideal in the production of many high-end fashion and décor leather products.


We have several pad printing machine for printing leather applications.  These machines come standard as turn key systems.  The pad printing machines for leather are available in various sizes, and multi color printing capable.They can also be used for other pad printing applications.


Screen printing, pad printing, and inkjet printing are the best methods for decorating leather. Inkjet and screen printing work best for smooth to lightly textured leather substrates while pad printing is ideal for printing on 3-dimensional objects, compound angles, and textured leather surfaces.

Pad printing, Inkjet printing, and screen printing are superior to hot stamping on leatherette and products. Hot stamping risks damaging the product surface. This is because of the heat and pressure required to hot stamp leather or leather-like goods if often too high.
