Overview

We can print onto a wide range of very small or awkwardly shaped objects such as Switches, Lenses Gear knobs and Push buttons, in a variety of substrates, mainly including a range of plastic and metal components.

At Cotswold Screen Printers we have established connections with a number of suppliers and manufacturers of high-quality industrial switches, within the automotive and transport industry as well as for industrial machinery and music consoles. Therefore, if you require any advice on where to purchase your product, we can put you in touch leading manufacturers within the industry, as well as advise on the best options for printing to give you a striking, yet long lasting and durable result.

We can print onto different types of switches buttons, catering for both indoor and outdoor use, and surface or under surface printing depending upon your product. For example, push buttons, illuminated push buttons, joysticks, buzzers, gear leavers, interlocking switch assemblies and dials.

Due to our specialism in this area we operate two print departments specialising in this field and therefore we can print not only flat surface buttons, but also buttons with concave or convex surfaces, and textured and non-textured finishes.

Our Pad printing department allows printing onto tiny and difficult to print buttons which may have uneven surfaces as listed above or require specialist jigging in order to support them for printing.

Our Screen-printing department allows us to print larger volumes with flat surfaces, by printing multiples of buttons or lenses together, thus offering a cost effective and quick turnaround for larger volumes.

Print can be a single or multiple of colours depending on your design, and where specialist jigging is required in order to print your product, we can design and organise this on site if required.

Inks

With over 30 years of experience in printing for industry we are well aware of the importance of using the correct inks and print processes to ensure that your end product has both a high quality and detailed finish, whilst also being durable and long lasting. In doing so all our inks have been rigorously tested to ensure they are suitable for their end purpose, and we stock specialist inks for the different substrates on which we are printing. We and we carry out ink adhesion testing on all new products prior to printing as part of the service we provide, and will agree % of batch testing with you depending on your requirement.
