About TBS Associates Ltd

What is Pad Printing?

Pad or Tampo printing is a method of printing onto most substrates.

It gives a precise and detailed print onto curved or awkwardly shaped components, as well as flat and textured surfaces.

Because this operation is digitally controlled, the results are very consistent.

Pad Printing at TBS

TBS uses modern top quality digitally controlled Pad Printing machinery, printing on a variety of components and substrates for use in the telecommunications, motor and white goods industries, along with point of sale and corporate companies.


Prototypes are more than welcome. The ability to turn work around quickley enables customers to view finished products before they go into full scale production.

TBS can offer an assembly and collating service to compliment any of the components printed

Plates / Jigs and Artwork

We can offer a full origination service with Mac or PC generated artwork.

With in house plates and jig making, our lead times are cut to a minimum. Just E-mail your design to us and let us do the rest.

Plates/Jigs and Artwork

It can be challenging to decide the design of the final product. Therefore, we offer all our customers a full origination service using the design you give us. 

Right at the beginning of your order, we will book you in for a consultation at our base in Broughton Astley, Leicestershire to discuss the acute details of your design. Don't worry!  If you're not located nearby simply email over a design brief and we’ll get to work.

All our plate and jig-making is done in-house, this ensures the production time is at a minimum enabling us to provide high-quality products in a shorter time. Our Artwork is all generated on Mac and PC programmes


We are aware that any misunderstandings over the design can cost precious time and money which leads to an unhappy client. Therefore, we provide all our customers prototype designs to ensure you are happy with the final product before being sent off for printing.

Once we have received your initial design request we will provide you with a full prototype created by our in-house team on Mac and PC design software. We do this to ensure that the design is keeping to what you envisaged. If there are any changes you would like us to make with the prototypes provided we are happy to amend the design.

We will wait for your approval of our design before any pad printing goes ahead. Once you have approved the prototype we will speedily go ahead with producing the rest of the batch.
