Graphic Design Turns Your Good Concepts Into Great Designs
UniversalPromo’s graphic designers specialize in the development and adaptation of graphics for print transfer. We use the latest design programs including the full Adobe Suite and Corel Draw to develop artwork that fulfills your objectives in terms of both function and design. Early in the project timeline we work with injection molding manufacturers to identify the shape and substrate of your product. Knowing the specifications of your product helps us best prepare graphics that will look great once printed on your product. Since many of our customers have a variety of products, our graphic design team will make sure your design can transfer to a variety of shapes and sizes for future orders!
For customers seeking support in original designs, UniversalPromo is here to help! We offer corporate identity kits that include original logos, letterhead, instruction manuals, posters, banners and more.
Versatile Equipment and Supplies for Custom Projects
Since injection molding manufacturers produce a diverse array of products, UnviersalPromo offers equally diverse capabilities! We serve injection molding manufacturers in variety of industries including medical, industrial, food, retail and more. We have capabilities for custom, semi-automated printing services on various substrates that include the following:
- Pebax ®
Once your product’s graphics are prepared for transfer, our engineering team continues preparing images and equipment for printing. We make custom nesting fixtures and select the proper dies or pads to ensure your images transfer crisp and clear onto every contour and curve.
There are two printing methods in which UniversalPromo specializes: hot stamping and pad printing.
Hot stamping imprints your design on rubber or metal dies using a foil of ribbon through a heat transfer process. The hot stamping printing heated the die with your design and presses a ribbon of foil against the substrate of your product. What results is a clear, enduring impression. UniversalPromo is proud to be a top distributor of high-quality foil and dies in the Midwest. Our customers can choose from foils in a broad range of colors and finishes to fit their specifications.
Pad printing transfers ink from a silicone pad to the substrate of your product through an indirect offset printing process. Pad printing is the best method for imprinting two-dimensional images onto three-dimensional surfaces.
We complete printing services on a variety of products, including but not limited to the following:
- EKG machines
- Pill cases
- Food and beverage containers
- Plastic dishes and silverware
- Silicon bakeware and utensils
- Bottles and bottle caps
- Cutting boards
- Display cases
- Store fixtures
- Plastic toys
- Sporting goods
- Retail packaging
- Agricultural products
- Shipping containers
- Building and construction
- PVC pipes and fittings
- Fasteners, screws, nuts, clips, dowels, washers and spacers
For every pad printing project, UniversalPromo uses Class VI Medical Grade Inks that dry fast and endure sterilization methods such as water and chemicals. Class VI Medical Grade inks meet USP standards safety, making them safe for several applications that include medical implant devices.
