How to Print on 1/2 ID Lace using Digital Method

How to Print in 1/2 ID Lace using Digital Method

In our online shop we want to stretch prices as possible. We want to ensure that once you knock in our door, you are not going to leave us empty handed. I understand that sometimes our affordable lanyard printing services is still not possible for your budget. In that case we still have lower offer with 1/2 ID lace printing. Unlike in lanyard where we are going to use sublimation method, in 1/2 lace we can use the traditional way of screen printing. Yes that’s cheap but still has limitation only a good choice in a limited budget for custom design.

I know that in our industry we have two categories such as digital and traditional printing. And of course as lanyard printer, it is given that we are doing digital method and printing using traditional is not always an option. Fortunately in this post I’m going to teach you how to do computerized printing in a half inch lace. Actually it is easier and better output than the classic way. It is also cheap as you can use left-over materials. Without further ado let’s go.

Instead of screen printing, we are going to use a cutter plotter here. This is a challenge to your plotter because you need to cut a design having 7 millimetres in height. If you are using Cameo 3 or Cuyi 630 that won’t be a problem because these machines are capable of cutting small and intricate design. The subjects are small that’s why I mentioned that we can use spare materials for this project.

Once your vinyl cut-outs are ready, you can now prepare your 32-inches long lace where you are going to heatpress your prepared vinyl. To make it easier, you can put the lace with attached vinyl in used sublimation paper. Use thermal tape to fix your materials in the paper. In this method you can make 15 ID laces per press in contrary of only 8 lanyards per press.

Also I want to stress out 32-inches size is adjustable. If you are making for elementary students, 28 inches is enough for a decent size of not too long or short. Also the temperature settings in this method is the same as you are pressing vinyl into T-shirt.

The best in this project is that you can use materials that seem to be trash.  I consider those scrapped vinyl as problem but now we have this way to dispose it practically. We can also accept charity/sponsored printing project in this method. We can also include this in package for PVC ID printing.
