Basically, hydrographic printing works and it works well. The process involves taking the two or three dimensional piece to be printed, prepping it, then applying primer and a base coat of quality paint. The next step is then to put the film you choose printed with the graphic image to be used on top of warm water, wait a specific amount of time, then spray a formula called activator directly on the film, after which the film is dissolved and turned into liquid form. Combining this graphic-turned-liquid and activator together also creates a bonding agent, which will allow the print to neatly wrap around the piece that will be printed. Finally, we take the piece and dip it very slowly in through the liquid after waiting for an exact amount of time for the print to permanently attach, then we bring it back out. It is then rinsed with warm water and let dry. The piece is now flawlessly decorated without a single spot missed. The piece is then painted with a quality clear coat giving it luster and long lasting durability.
Hydrographics is a fascinating process to watch. It works so well, it is definitely becoming a very popular printing method.
