Do you look at your motorbike or car panel and realize how boring it looks; then at some point, the thought of giving it a customized look suddenly crosses your mind? There are several ways on how to add a personalized touch on your vehicle, one of which is using stickers of vinyl decals. However, stickers don’t have enough staying power, and they can fade or peel off in time. Leaving your bike looking messy, pasty and shabby. This is where hydrographic printing enters the picture.
If water printing sounds like a new concept, that is pretty because it is. Also referred to as hydro dipping and hydro imaging, the water transfer printing process was originally done only in the military, and the technology was used primarily to camouflage weapons and other similar items. Hence, this technology is quite expensive. Fortunately, it is becoming more popular and extensively used nowadays, bringing the costs down and enabling everyone to try it.
The way water transfer printing works entails taking the particular piece to be printed, pre-treating it, and applying a base coat. Next, a film printed with the graphic image is used on top of a vat of water, after which it is dissolved and turned into a liquid. Together with this graphic-turned-liquid comes a bonding agent, which will enable it to tidily wrap around the piece that will be printed. Ultimately, the printer takes the piece, submerges it into the liquid for a few seconds, then brings it right back out—and the piece is then perfectly decorated without mess.
The great thing about this modern technology is that it is quite a fascinating process to watch and does the printing job perfectly and instantly. Moreover, it can be done to a number of items no matter how big or small as long as it can be dipped into the water.
