Decal transfers are multicolored motifs printed with enamels, inks or precious metals. First screen-printed flat, the transfers are then semi-automatically applied onto the object by means of silicone pad. This process is ideal for decorating on complex non flat surfaces that can not be reached with screen-printing.
