As part of our yearly tradition, GMN has produced another custom calendar for the upcoming year. Apart from the functional value offered in helping to track the months and days of the year, these calendars also serve as a fun way to show off some of GMN’s decorative capabilities. In collaboration with our Seattle, WA Division, this year’s calendars were created at GMN’s Monroe, NC Division.
This year, we decided to make some exciting modifications to our calendar design, while still maintaining some of the same design elements as in previous years.
Pad printing is an offset printing process where ink is transferred from a cliché to the required component via a pad. Bringing together a blend of consistency, repeatability, and durability, pad printing can help you achieve intricate patterns and designs. While most decorative techniques such as screen and lithographic printing require a flat surface, pad printing is one of the very few processes that is well suited for decorating gently curved, irregular, textured, and/or cylindrical surfaces.
