People who have had tight timelines in the past know that one problem with temporary tattoos is the length of time it takes to manufacture them. For most manufacturers, the turnaround will often range between 3 and 5 weeks. There are a few reasons for this, and to help explain, here is a quick look at the printing process.

It's important to know that your tattoos will not be printed individually. They are grouped together with other temporary tattoo orders in large press runs in order to get the best possible pricing. Some printing companies will not go to press unless they meet company-set quantity minimums, and as such, are not able to make extremely tight timelines unless you happen to call at the exact right moment.

Once the art is received, it is then processed. Your design is laid out on a large sheet with the other tattoos on that press run. Printing plates are then made, and the sheet is printed numerous times in order to create the quantities everyone is requesting.

After the paper backings and the 4 printing colors (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black) are printed, the inks are left to dry. The inks used in temporary tattoos are a combination of vegetable dyes, and the big trade-off for being 100% safe is that they take much much longer to dry than any other types of commercial ink.

After 3-5 days drying time, the tattoo adhesive is printed over top of the inks. They are then sealed with a plastic cover, cut, packaged, and shipped out to you.

The entire process takes between 5 and 7 days, not taking into account any delays in drying time or artwork hold-ups. As you can see, it's all about timing! That's why we're so excited to be able to offer a press run every week. To return to our main custom tattoo page, CLICK HERE
