What types of branding are available?
Screen printing: Used on pens, flat plastic items and PU, as well as clothing, particularly T-shirts. Ink is applied to the product by pushing it through a stencil (screen) containing your design.
Tampo/PadPrinting : An ink applying method but used to especially good effect on odd or curved shapes. An increasing popular method due to the flexibility and number of products it can mark. Ink is transferred onto product by way of a rubber pad.
Engraving : Used most commonly on crystal, glass and metal products to achieve a quality, lasting finish. Laser engraving is the most accurate and economical way of reproducing fine design work, although machine engraving may still be used to excellent effect.
Blocking : This is mainly for leather and PU items as well as notebooks. A metal block is pressure stamped onto the product, which can be in a colour of your choice or without, just leaving your design in plain relief - blind embossing.
Embroidery : This is the most effective way to achieve high quality personalisation on clothing and headwear. The modern machinery offering speed and multiple colour possibilities, more customers are selecting this method of personalisation to great effect. A typical design is based on a stitch count of around 7,500 stitches.
Die Stamping : Usually used on metal products like stainless steel or similar products. Like blocking, metal die is pressure stamped onto your product leaving an impression of your design. It can be left plain or filled with colour.
