You might ask what is Water Transfer Printing? Water transfer printing is used on everything from boats to cars to guns. It is a durable to print on these surfaces a variety of patterns. This method of printing is more durable then paint and decals. It is made to survive in long conditions of direct exposure. Metals, glass, and plastics are the most common thing to be printed because they are durable materials themselves, wood can warp and splinter so it is only used on hard woods. The main goal of water transfer printing is to put a lasting finish, generally a pattern, on an item that will be strenuous wearing conditions.
Water transfer is also known as hydro imaging and hydrographics. It is a relatively new industry for the common consumer because costs have recently been decreased. Hydro imaging has been around for decades but it was primarily used solely in the military. It was a great way to camouflage guns but it was an expensive technology so only the military had access to it. This technique is called camo dipping. Recently both machinery and equipment have become more affordable for the average small business and so the industry is starting to grow.
Some of the benefits of water transferring printing come in a variety of sports. For instance in hunting you can camouflage everything. So your gun can have a camouflage or be camo dipped that will match the terrain you normally hunt it. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have a camouflage that is of forest foliage when you are hunting in the desert. Hydro imaging allows you to customize your gun for any terrain. It also helps you personalize anything you own. Your gun, ATV or boat will stand out as yours because you've customized it with the pattern or design that fits your personality.
Aside from practical uses like camouflage, and branding your equipment as unique it can also add safety measures. When you add a unique pattern to something it helps it stand out. So if you add a unique pattern to your ATV while you are riding on the sand dunes your will be easily spotted by other motorists and perhaps accidents will be avoided. Using unique patterns and designs bring another element of safety simply because they draw attention, you don't have to paint your gear safety orange to get attention but something unique and stunning can have the same effect.
Water transfer printing is a new and upcoming technology that has a variety of options and uses. It will be exciting to see where this industry goes. It is durable, unique and cost effective, it is going to only grow over the next few years.
