    Face printing

    Does anyone have a good resource for face / dial printing. Iím interested in putting a friends logo on a face. Iím seen the print and bake methods but prefer a quality job rather than my attempt.

    I'm assuming that you mean - dial.

    The simplest technique is pad printing - quite a lot of companies out there using the technique to produce short runs of promotional goods, and so may be able to help; Dekla or Ickler in Germany also come to mind as potential sources. Quality can be very high indeed, lots of watch manufacturers use it.

    Thank you. I will give those a google. I did see a YouTube where the image was printed onto a type of Ďpaperí cut to size, soaked in water and slid into position and then baked. I thinks Dekla approach looks good. Many thanks.
