Pad Transfer Printing

A type of printing, used on irreularly-shaped substrates, in which the image is transferred from a metal or plastic photoengraved (or intaglio) plate (called a cliche) to an intermediate silicone rubber pad and, ultimately, to the substrate. Ink is supplied to the engraved portions of the cliche after each impression.
