The design is silk-screen or litho printed onto special paper which is then cover coated. The resulting print is treated as a water slide transfer and applied by hand to the ware. The process is slower and more labour intensive than direct screen printing, but is more flexible as colours are able to be built up with precision and control. This process allows the print area to be maximised, as well as providing the option to print on the base,as a back stamp, on the handle, or inside the rim.
