I'm working on a project where I need to apply graphics to both painted plastic and metal surfaces that will be outdoors and have UV exposure.
These surfaces will experience moderate wear and tear throughout their lifetime so that should be considered.
Additionally, we need a process that's cost effective and can be applied relatively quickly since this'll be done at scale 100's of times per day.
I've looked into inkjet transfer process which seems promising, but I don't know the specifics of things like which inks to use, which transfer process, etc.
Are there any other methods you'd recommend?
Also - if this is the wrong site on stack exchange for this type of question, where should I post it? This seemed most appropriate
