Hydrographics is the method used to give 3 dimensional surfaces a printed, usually patterned, design. This process also goes by the names of water transfer printing, water transfer imaging, cubic printing, immersion printing or hydro dipping. Many different types of materials can have a printed design applied to them through hydrographics and this includes plastic, metal, hard woods, metals, fiberglass as well as other materials. From car parts to helmets, there are a lot of different things to use hydrographics for. As long as you can dip it in water and paint it, then it will work just fine to use the hydro dipping method.
