Class VI Medical grade ink pad Printing on a variety of substrates
At UniversalPromo, we employ a printing process for medical products called pad printing. This process uses customizable stamps to print clear designs on contoured or irregular surfaces. We use the very best machines and medical grade ink to meet branding and design standards for FDA approval.

- Pebax ®
We use Class VI Medical Grade inks for medical product printing. Our Class VI Medical Grade inks are high-quality inks suitable for a variety of medical applications. Our bio-compatible Class VI inks pass drug resistance testing and endure chemical, heat, and gas sterilization techniques. We can match these quick-drying, versatile inks to the color and opacity of your medical product.
FDA Compliant PRinting that won't compromise the integrity of your medical devices
One major challenge for Medical Startup Companies involves issues in the prototyping process related to compliance. Compliance issues can pose significant and frustrating delays in the medical product development process. At UniversalPromo, we want to see your ideas become solutions. We are mindful of the real-life impact your medical products hold for patients and healthcare professionals. That is why we will work with you through the printing process to eliminate unnecessary revisions and delays.
UniversalPromo is committed to preserving the integrity of your medical products during the printing process. We print in a clean environment, which involves careful control over factors that would compromise your medical product’s performance or safety. Our clean environments involve controlled factors such as personnel, equipment, air flow, and environmental conditions.
To prove your medical products have been compliant throughout the development process, UniversalPromo offers customers documented processes for their printing project. Documentation provides evidence of printing compliance for FDA standards. It also allows your printing project to be repeated or adjusted, should the need arise. Upon request, UniversalPromo also offers data sheets on material safety, as well as compliance certificates for all inks.
Prototyping and approval processes can be stressful. UniversalPromo is here for you. You can rely on our expertise to help navigate compliance standards for medical products. We’re here to support Medical Startup Companies as they bring great ideas to the healthcare industry.
UniversalPromo has industry experience spanning 40 years that includes printing solutions for Class I, Class II, and Class III medical products. Since 1976, FDA has classified medical products as Class I, Class II and Class III “based on the risk posed by the device.”
Class I: General Controls. The FDA classifies Class I medical devices as low-risk to consumers. The FDA subjects Class I products to general controls aimed at establishing ongoing “safety and effectiveness” after devices are approved to market. General controls include the maintenance and evaluation of manufacturing, reporting, registration and recordkeeping processes.
Class II: General Controls with Special Controls. The FDA has determined Class II medical devices to present a greater risk to consumers than those categorized as Class I. The FDA applies the same General Controls to Class II medical devices as Class I. Additionally, they enforce additional Special Controls related to labeling, performance standards, and testing requirements.
Class III: General Controls and Premarket Approval. The highest medical device category is Class III. The FDA will classify medical devices as Class III if they “support or sustain life, are implanted in the body, or have the potential for unreasonable risk of illness or injury.” Because Class III devices pose the highest risk to consumers, these devices endure a higher standard for approval, including proof of safety and effectiveness. These products are subject to the same controls as Class I and Class II medical devices, and require premarket approval.
Medical Startup Companies can trust UniversalPromo to meet all compliance standards required for printing on medical products, whether classified as Class I, Class II or Class III.
