Direct Individualized Full Colour Print on Objects or Signs

20 Jan

We have the ability to print directly onto objects with a flat surface in full colour and even on single piece basis. In other words, you can bring your own item to be printed onto!


Above examples starting from top left:

Stainless steel plate printed to serve as a wall plaque – with white also being printed

Writing Notebook printed with customer’s design

Box printed with individualized logo without white being printed.

For the last picture the items are power banks. On 1 side the logo of the gifting Company (Google) is printed. On the other side, each item is personalized with the logo of the receiving company.

Prints were done directly onto the object and is possible to print up to photo quality

Depending on the quality of the original artwork and the material/finishing of the object clarity can be very high. As an example, in the photograph below, we zoom in on the “TM” of the logo which is barely over 1mm wide.

Direct Print Clarity







The print can be printed in embossed form as shown below.

Flat vs Embossed Direct Print on Object










This printing method has the ability to print a white base. In other words, the method can be used to print on clear, transparent or dark surfaces. Printing on clear and transparent surfaces without the white base will produce a see through look.

Rotating Engraving

13 Aug

Rotating Engrave

This particular example makes use of a rotating mechanism that allows the engraving to follow the rounded shape of the glass from left to right. What this means is that a larger area (left to right) is engraveable.  However, we can only rotate along 1 axis (left to right), so the increase in size is also in the same direction.  This is perfectly fine for cylindrical or near cylindrical shapes such as the engraved area on the glass shown. However, if the shape is that of a ball where it curves not only left to right but top to bottom as well, we cannot reach the top and bottom areas. Using a world globe as an example, we will be able to engrave along 1 circle, say for example along the equator of the globe. But the further away from the equator, the less likely we would be able to engrave on it.

Etched Stainless Steel

Text and Logo is etched (engraved) into metal (in this case shiny finish stainless steel). The etched colour is due to removal of the surface metal to expose the metal beneath. As the metal beneath is the same but no longer mirror finished, its matt texture gives it its whitish colour in contrast to the shiny background.

Colour Fill

WApartment Unit Number Letter Box Taghere the customer needs colours in the tag or sign, it is possible to etch deeper and then fill colours into the grooves. For the tag with numbers, hairlined stainless steel was used. The tag was used as to show the apartment unit number on a letterbox.

Stainless Steel Cut & EtchCut Through

Going yet deeper into the metal we will in effect cut through the metal. The stainless steel bookmark example is to show a mix of etch & cut through.

Other areas of usage other than shown in the samples, includes control panels, plaques & trophies, gift labels etc

Mark on Stainless Steel

26 Jun

Cocktail Shakerknife

Above we used a chemcial bonding process to mark the stainless steel items, using a chemical compound and a laser. The mark is much stronger than normal printing. It requires abrasive actions such as grinding to remove the mark.  We have tested a sample by soaking in turpentine and in thinner with no effect on the mark. A micro-torch was also used to burn the mark directly for a short while with no effect on the mark.

Below is directly laser marking on the stainless steel without a chemical bonding agent. Its a reaction of the metal itself to laser. It requires a test for the suitability of the metal. Even if the item is stainless steel it still needs to be tested as there are a variety of stainless steel. The mark can only be removed if you remove a layer of the steel by grinding away the steel.
