About Us

World-Class Machines, Methods and Materials for Pad Printing. 

John Kaverman



​​Pad Print Pros was born out of my passion for the science of pad printing.  My printing career began with screen printing textiles and plastics in 1987.  After obtaining a degree in printing technology, I spent six years process engineering screen and pad printed automotive instrumentation and controls before going to work as an applications engineer for a pad printing equipment manufacturer.  

I've been fortunate to have worked with some of the best people in the pad printing industry: designers, graphic artists, technicians, engineers and a lot of very clever operators.  Over the years,  I've continually learned more about the science of pad printing.  The desire to share that knowledge motivated me to start Pad Print Pros, so that I could focus my energies on teaching others to pad print more effectively, using the most advanced methods, machines and materials available.
