  • Patent number: 8101257
    Abstract: An abrasion-resistant transfer printing structure to transfer patterns and texts to a targeted object surface by press printing includes a hardened protecting layer and a release base layer. The hardened protection layer includes a first surface and a second surface. The first surface allows a transfer printing glue to be bonded to the targeted object to cover at least an area corresponding to the patterns and texts. The release base layer is located on the second surface of the hardened protection layer by a releasable manner and can be separated from the hardened protection layer by applying a release force after the press printing process is finished. Thus the hardened protection layer is exposed to isolate the patterns and texts from in contact with the exterior. The surface of the targeted object also is abrasion resistant.
