 What Is Hydrographic Printing?


Hydrographic Printing (also known as water immersion printing, Water transfer printing, hydro dipping, hydro imaging and fluid imaging) is a 3D decorating process where elaborate graphics like wood grain, Carbon Fiber, Camouflage, Geometrical designs, etc... are applied to a product surface.


The Hydrographic Printing process is extensively used to decorate items that range from Rifles, Handguns, entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim. Films can be applied to all types of substrates including plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water, the hydro-graphic process can be used.
