Described simply, hydrographics is a method by which printed designs are applied to three-dimensional surfaces. This method is also known as immersion printing, water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, hydro dipping, water marbling or cubic printing.

The phenomenon of hydrographics is opening up a whole new era of vehicle customization!
Through this process, printed designs can be artistically added to:

  • The exterior panels of vehiclesInterior and dash trim
  • The engine bay
  • Wheels

This process is applicable to just about any surface that can be painted, including:

  • Metal
  • Fiberglass
  • Plastic
  • Ceramics
  • Glass
  • Some types of wood
  • And more!

Hydrographics works like this: The surface that will be printed is pre-treated. A pre-printed film with the design of choice is immersed into a tub of water. Chemicals are sprayed on the film to dissolve it. These chemicals also go into action to serve as a bonding agent. The material to be printed is then lowered into the tub of water. The dipping is accomplished in one continuous motion. The ink wraps around the material in the right places to create the stunning design. The object is removed from the tub, the chemicals are rinsed off, revealing a great piece of art! Hydrographics can be combined with custom paint jobs to create looks that are truly unique.
