There’s no one size print solution that can cover all substrates – glass, polished metals, acrylics, wood, stove enamelled finishes – all call for an understanding of the best technique to achieve durable reproduction of your message or logo with clarity and definition.
We’ve three decades of experience in producing consistently high quality logo reproduction for the drinks industry, meaning you can rely on Waiter’s Friends expertise to achieve memorable brand reproduction every time.
Screen Print/Pad Print
A well established printing technique, ideal for putting a colour logo onto corkscrews, ice buckets, pitchers and other plastic drink ware. Minimum print runs apply as the setup process for each colour is lengthy. But, once up and running pad printing produces great results! We are able to print in 1 to 4 colours and reproduce most Pantone references. Not sure on print colour? Send us a sample and we’ll endeavour to match!
Computerised digital print allows for fantastically detailed reproduction of designs in full colour imagery. Ideal for items a such as custom-printed DropStop® and polydome branded champagne re-sealers. Digital printing is the best method for printing intricate designs in full colour, but its only possible on flat surfaces.
A laser beam shoots out and burns the surface! Sounds like a scene from Star Wars, but in fact its a great way to brand wooden and metal bar ware – and some glassware too! Laser engraving works beautifully with our printed Bar Blades, stainless steel wine coolers and wooden bottle display plinths. A permanent branding solution, YAG laser engraving leaves a subtle mark behind or infill with black paint for a bolder finish.
Waiter’s Friend specialised state-of-the art adhesive vinyl technology is ideal for short runs on wine buckets and ice baths. Visually striking, vinyl branding works really well with bold logo designs and allows us to brand our wine bowls quickly and from as few as 12 pcs. Not a permanent branding solution, but great for creating visual appeal at events and wine tastings.
Hot Foil Stamp
For the premium look, choose a much admired shiny gold or silver branding effect. Using a metallic foil, the logo is made into a stamp that transfers the foil onto the surface of a product using heat. A seriously classy finish, foil stamping is used to print corkscrews, brand wine stoppers and can even be applied to plastic ice buckets.
An enduring branding method, embroidered logos have a unique sheen and 3 dimensional quality to them. Without too much setup cost, embroidery is suited to small and large quantities. Waiter’s Aprons and the Waiter’s Friend Wine Trolley Bags lend themselves to embroidered logos.
