Colorfill

Screen printing an image and then debossing it onto the vinyls surface.

Colorprint

Available for single or multi-color logos, color printing transfers a logo onto a 3-dimensional surface using a silicone pad. You can highlight your logo in vivid color on pens, drinkware, technology items and accessories with this decorating method.

Custom Mold

The custom mold method is most often used in the creation of our custom chocolate products. A 3-d mold of your logo will be created. Melted chocolate will then be poured into the mold, shaken to remove air bubbles and sent to the cooling rack. Once fully cooled, the finished product reveals your custom molded chocolate piece.

Deboss

This classic method allows you to leave an impression, or rather, a depression, of your logo onto a material's surface. We create a die and then heat-press it into the material. What's left behind is a clean, crisp logo that you can see and feel. Note that the debossing imprint method does not include color, but instead leaves a tone on tone imprint. Materials that can be debossed are leather, Durahyde, UltraHyde, Scuba, recycled rubber and paperboard products.

Decal

Artwork is produced on a transparent decal, then applied to product.

Die-Casting

Injecting molten metal into the cavity of a carved die (or a mold)

Die-Striking

Producing emblems and other flat promotional products by striking a blank metal sheet with a hammer that holds the die.

Digital Printing

A system where a color image is separated into 4 different color values by the use of filters and screens (usually done digitally). The result is a color separation of 4 images, that when transferred to printing plates and printed on a printing press with the colored inks cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow and black, reproduces the original color image. These four colors can be combined to create thousands of colors just as your computer printer does.

 



Emblem

A die cut metal likeness of your logo will be created and attached to the product.

Emboss

Embossing is very similar to debossing in the fact that a die is created and heat pressed into the material. However, the difference is the result. Whereas debossing creates an impression into the material, embossing creates a raised image of your logo on the material.

Embroidery

Stitching a design into fabric through the use of high-speed,computer-controlled sewing machines. Artwork must first be "digitized," which is the specialized process of converting two-dimensional artwork into stitches or thread. A particular format of art such as a jpeg, tif, eps, or bmp, cannot be converted into an embroidery tape. The digitizer must actually recreate the artwork using stitches. Then it programs the sewing machine to sew a specific design, in a specific color, with a specific type of stitch. This is the process known as digitizing.

 



Epoxy Dome

Your full color logo will be printed on high grade vinyl paper and then covered with a clear, high gloss polyurethane dome. The finished dome will then be affixed to your item, resulting in a smooth, polished look for your branding.

Etching

Using a process in which an image is first covered with a protective coating that resists acid, then exposed, leaving bare metal and protected metal. The acid attacks only the exposed metal, leaving the image etched onto the surface.

Fire Branded

A metal recreation of your logo will be created, heated and then pressed against the items. The imprint left behind will have been burnt into the product, leaving your mark. Fire branding is most often used on wood products for a distinguished look.

Flexograph

Flexography is the major process used to print packaging materials. Flexography is used to print corrugated containers, folding cartons, plastic bags, disposable cups and containers, labels, adhesive tapes, envelopes, newspapers, and wrappers (candy and food). A flexible plate with a raised image of your logo will be created. The inked plates are then rotated on a cylinder which transfers the image to your products. Flexography uses fast-drying inks, is a high-speed print process, and can print continuous patterns.

Hot Stamp

Hot stamping uses heat and metallic film in a specialty printing process that produces a shiny design of your logo. Hot stamping, also called foil stamping, dry stamping, foil imprinting, or leaf stamping, is usually combined with an embossing process to result in a metallic impression of your logo on the product. Hot stamping uses dies, or sculpted metal stamps. The heated dies seal a thin later of metallic leaf (foil) onto a surface. Once heated, the die presses the foil against the product with enough pressure that the foil sticks only in the imprint area.

Image Bonding®

This patented process allows for an infinite number of colors in perfect registration. It can be applied to a virtually unlimited range of surfaces: webbing, foam padding, insulated padding, PVC, nylon, neoprene, ABS, almost any substrate. The imprint is reproduced onto the surface layer of the material. The Image Bonding® process results in superior durability that will withstand the most rigorous of testing criteria.

Laser Engraving

The laser engraving imprint method uses a controlled intense beam of light to vaporize material on a substrate (item) resulting in a permanent indelible mark of your logo or message.

Laser Etching

The Laser Etching process is similar to Laser Engraving in that it uses a controlled, intense beam of light to create a mark of your logo or message. The difference lies in the depth of the imprint. The Laser Etching is not set as deep into the product.

Laser or Foil Stamp

Applying metallic or colored foil imprints to vinyl, leather or paper surfaces. Usually with a deboss.

 



Offset Printing

Offset printing works on a very simple principle: ink and water don't mix. Images (words and art) are put on plates, which are dampened first by water, then ink. The ink adheres to the image area, the water to the non-image area. Then the image is transferred to a rubber blanket and from the rubber blanket to paper. That's why the process is called "offset" - the image does not go directly to the paper from the plates.

Pad Printing

A recessed surface is covered with ink. The plate is wiped clean, leaving ink in the recessed areas. A silicone pad is then pressed against the plate, pulling the ink out of the recesses, and pressing it directly onto the product.

 



Screen Printing / Silk-Screening

An image is transferred to the printed surface by ink, which is pressed through a stenciled screen and treated with a light-sensitive emulsion. Film positives are put in contact with the screens and exposed to light, hardening the emulsion not covered by film and leaving a soft area on the screen for the squeegee to press ink through. Also, you must create a different screen for every color you are going to print, and then screen each color separately allowing drying time in-between.

 



Sublimation

Dye transfer process where the image consists of a colored dye permanently embedded into the material surface of pores. Used to imprint messages, graphics and photographs on a variety of items, primarily mouse pads, mugs, T-shirts, caps, and trophy medals.

Transfer

Multi-color logos are applied to products through the use of transfers. Your logo is first reverse-screened onto a paper-like transfer material and then applied to the material's surface with heat and pressure. It's ideal for bold, colorful logos with sharp lines.

Watch Printing

Available for single or multi-color logos, watch printing transfers a logo onto the face of a watch using a silicone pad, in a method similar to pad printing.

Woven

Only available on fabrics, your logo or message will be individually woven into the material.
