Making Eye Decals with Digital Printing and Cutting On A Single Device
Character figures are decorated in a variety of ways, including painting, printing, and decals, depending on their designs. In particular, the character's eyes require delicate coloring and expression. The eyes of a typical figure are usually decorated by pad printing. Pad printing involves platemaking and printing one color at a time, but with high-definition inkjet-printed water transfer decals, multicolor printing with gradations can be done in a single process. Since it is easy to change the design and it can be produced from a single piece, it is suitable for small-lot production for prototyping purposes, as well as for original decal production. In this article, we will introduce the production of eye decals using the desktop printer VersaSTUDIO BN2-20.
