Amasaki Co., Ltd.

Whether metal, leather, fabric, wood, or plastic, printing is possible regardless of the material.

We handle any printing process in-house, such as pad printing, laser printing, silk printing, inkjet printing, hot stamp printing, and thermal transfer printing. We can handle large-lot orders with our five factories, two of which have wide spaces particularly suitable for silkscreen/pad printing.

Printing methods that are possible at our company
Pad printing
Pad printing is a printing method in which the ink remaining on engraved plate is moved to the pad (silicon rubber) and then transferred to the target. It accommodates from single color and multicolors to special colors. Printing can be applied to spherical, round, engraved, and concaved surfaces and on a wide variety of materials used for printed products. Amasaki owns more than 50 units of pad printers and can accommodate large- and small-lot orders flexibly even when the deadline is tight. Pad printing marks the beginning of Amasaki’s printing business, and it is still its main printing technology.
Silk printing
It is a method in which the ink is injected through the holes of a mesh screen. It is called “silkscreen printing” as the screen used to be made of silk. Nylon is used in place of silk today, and the method is used primarily for printing on a flat surface. As Amasaki owns several lanes for multicolor printing, we can handle large-lot printing orders for various items, such as bags and T-shirts. Furthermore, we are capable of quick delivery because we produce plates in-house. Amasaki is adept at specialty printing, and we also engage in “rotating silk printing," where prints can be applied to barrel-shaped bottles and tumblers.
■ Laser marking
It is a printing method for inscriptions of 6–8-μm deep performed via applying laser on the object, which peels off, melts, burns, grinds, and oxidizes the surface layer. Its characteristic is that the prints do not wear off or peel off and can be applied to a wide range of materials, including metal, leather, stone, and acrylic. By applying laser to remove only the surface layer of coated/plated object, designs and logos that take advantage of the material texture can be created and the design would not be deformed even if it is applied to a curved surface. This method can be used for 3D printing or for printing individual names and serial numbers.
It is a printing method for full color noncontact printing. It can accommodate a maximum height (thickness) of 150 mm and printing can be applied to a surface with a maximum of 1.5 mm in height difference, as well as on three-dimensional objects. In addition, as inkjet printing does not require creating “plates,” it is suited for small-lot full-color printing. Moreover, it offers benefits such as “elimination of plate cost," "faster delivery," and "prevention of off-registration and other defects.” Amasaki also performs full-color printing to fabric products, such as T-shirts and bags. As we own multiple inkjet printers, we can accommodate large-lot productions.
[Hot stamping]
It is a method in which engraved plates made of brass and copper are used and heat and pressure are applied. There are two types of stamping: Hot stamping, which applies heat and pressure using only the engraving plate and foil stamping, where a film called “haku” is placed between the engraved plate and print surface. In foil stamping, prints with a metallic finish can be created. By creating haku screens on which logos and designs are printed, multicolor printing can be performed through a single step. (As creating haku is a costly and time-consuming process, this method is suitable for large-lot production.)
Thermal transfer
It is a printing method where designs are printed on a thermal transfer sheet and then transferred to the print object in full colors as heat and pressure is applied to the sheet. Unlike hot stamping, it can be used for small-lot sheet production and is therefore recommended for application on T-shirts, bags, and other gift/novelty products and/or for use in small-lot full-color printing on fabric products. The number of colors used does not make any difference in cost; however, the cost changes depending on the size of the sheet, which is determined by the design size. Printing is hardly affected by the type of cloth, and prints on fabric products are highly resistant to washing.
