A pad printer is the main part of the pad printing machine which is used to transfer ink from a pad to the object that you want to print. The pad printer has parts that help to hold both the pad and object to be printed steadily. The pad is then put into an inked surface that is shaped according to your desired object then pressed on your object. This gives a printed colored image as per your preference.
A flatbed printer helps in the reproduction of images that have a flat surface. The flat surface of the object to be reproduced is pressed on the flat inking surface, normally known as a printing bed. The printing bed is adjustable, which makes it possible to print thin as well as thick images. This printer is commonly used for commercial purposes, and it sells at a competitive price.
