What is hydrographics?

Water Transfer Printing or Hydrographics (also known as hydro dipping, hydro imaging, fluid imaging, hydrographic printing) is a 3D decorating process. Graphics such as geometrical , camouflage, carbon fiber, wood-grain, as well as custom images and patterns are applied to decorate the items.

The Hydrographics process is used worldwide to decorate a variety of items, from airplane interiors to very small items like cell phone cases, rims, cups and more.  Films can be applied to all kind of materials including plastic, wood, fiberglass, metal, and ceramics. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water, the water transfer printing process can be applied.

This process utilises a water-soluble film that contains the printed designs. Once an activator has been applied, the film dissolves and leaves the ink on the surface of the water. Now, the item can be immersed into the water and the ink wraps around it. It is then washed and protected with a clear topcoat.

How long does it take to create a custom hydrographic film?

Artwork is taken through the cylinder engraving process to produce the required film within 4-6 weeks.
