Printing on Yardsticks - Digital printing quality for small quantities

Are you already benefiting from the digital DIGITRAN heat transfer process when printing your yardsticks or levels? If not you might not know that you can use this process to print any quantity of yardsticks. High quality digital heat transfers can be applied to anything from a personalized product to a standard production run.
Thanks to the combination of digital printing and heat transfer technology you can comfortably apply photo-realistic, 1200 dpi prints onto your yardsticks. Therefore the DIGITRAN process separates the printing from the decorating. Simply send us your artwork to us and receive a roll of digitally printed heat transfer decals. By heat and pressure the heat transfer decal gets activated and adheres to each single segment of a yardstick. This technology makes sure that no excess ink drips in-between the segments and therefore raises the product's quality. Yardsticks or levels decorated like this can be shipped directly after the decoration process without any further waiting for solvents to evaporate or dry.

Additionally the digital printing technology makes the production of small to mid size orders highly cost-efficient. Every print can be different without costs for tool changes, cleaning, etc. By this you are able to print even smallest orders with a 4 color process gaining more business and customers.

With the DIGITRAN process every yardstick can be decorated with a glossy or matt finish. Additionally the products decorated using this harmless technology stands out due to their durability and photo-realistic quality.

For this application DIGITRAN offers both, the heat transfer machines as well as digitally printed heat transfer decals. The DIGITRAN TRF heat transfer machine even allows for switching the finish from matt to glossy on the fly without stopping it.
Print on any of your yardstick from 1m to 3m length, wooden or plastics, on one or both sides.
