First and most importantly is the pad printer itself. For tagless pad printing applications, the recommendation is a 1- or 2-color machine. Diving deeper into the type of machine, companies can also look into the maximum image size of the pad printer.

As the tagless pad printing guide mentions, there is one key piece that is needed to get your pad printer to run.
Laser plate-making is an easy and fast way to create plates for pad printing. Although there are other methods for plate-making, we suggest a laser plate-maker for those companies who need to constantly label different sized garments with different graphics.
