About Us

Pad Print Pros LLC was founded in 2011 for the sole purpose of providing the best possible plastics decorating solutions to our clients.

After working in the screen and pad print industries for 25 years in capacities including production, process and systems engineering, sales and sales management, I elected to step out “on my own”.

But I’m not really “on my own”.  During my career I’ve been fortunate to work with and for hundreds of outstanding people that are now part of an extensive network of associates, people that specialize in decorating and manufacturing processes, that I can count, and who can count on me.  I network with other professionals to provide solutions for pre- and post-treatment of plastic and other substrates, hot stamping, heat transfer, laser engraving, digital ink-jet and in-mold decorating. 

If you want a resume, ask me and I will send you one.  The important thing for you to realize if you’re committed to working with me to find the best methods, machines and materials, you’ll be happy with the final solution.
