Default When is screen > pad printing?

What rationale should one use when deciding whether to use pad printing vs screen printing?

It really depends on what you are printing.....Pad printing works great for printing on odd shapes and small parts.....Things like knobs, remote controls, lapel pins, golf balls, etc....What do you want to print....

You can also use it for relabeling t-shirts. Printing in the tag info like Hanes does.

Pad printing is also generally just aimed at smaller items or areas (as mentioned above) and is similar in process to offset litho printing whereas screen printing can be any size and is a direct ink transfer process.
