How to Add Graphics to Powder-Coated MDF Parts

By Rich Christianson | Posted: 11/21/2012 9:17AM


GCC Coatings, a manufacturer of powder coatings for wood, has released a video demonstrating how to apply an ink transfer to a coated MDF part in less than five minutes and fewer than 10 steps.

“After you have the ink transfers and the supplies, applying the graphic to the part is fairly simple,” said GCC Coatings President Troy Greenberg. “I liked that this could be done fairly quickly in house."

In addition to the video, GCC Coatings offers a report detailing four other options for adding a praphic to powder-coated parts. These additional options include screen printing, digital printing, domed labels, and vinyl signage and decals.

“The best choice for any particular job will depend on a few different factors," Greenberg said. “The volume of the job will play a pretty major role in how much any of the methods will cost.”

GCC Coatings is the child company of Greenberg Casework Company Inc. based in South Beloit, IL.  Greenberg Casework is also parent of RedLine Garagegear, which custom builds power-coated garage cabinets sold throughout the U.S. and Canada.
