Are you aware of any Lego quality alike printing service?

Hello,

I'm looking to print a a few full custom figures. The design is fully vectorised. I've used a few services before but the quality is not good enough. It looks grainy and you can feel the paint on your fingers.

Are you aware of any service that offers the same quality of printing like Lego?

We're based in Europe.

Thanks in advance.

    For a few figures, pad printing is not worth it. The preparation of the clichés is expensive, so only really suitable for printing large amounts of the same figure.

    Citizen brick based in the USA does custom pad printing which is the closest I've ever seen to official Lego quality, it's about exact. The only problem is to get that quality you have to use pad printing which only is feasible in large quantities as @CCC stated. They're carges are $200 per colour for one piece or $200 for one colour up to 200 pieces. This is because it takes the same amount of setup work to pad print one piece as it does to print hundreds.
