What is inkjet printing? It is a type of computer printing that recreates a digital image by propelling droplets of ink onto the matter surface. Compared to silk-screen printing, it utilizes a vector file instead of a physical print board, and has a significantly lower initial cost. Additionally, it is also cost efficient for small and medium batch quantity. Furthermore, inkjet printing is not only able to print multiple colors at the same cost, but also realize color gradation, generating a picture-like print tone.

What is laser marking? It is a process that utilizes a focused beam of light to mark the surface of an object, by altering the material’s properties and appearance.
Compared to more traditional silk-screening and inkjet printing, laser marking is not only almost permanent, but is also both precise and of high contrast, giving it a high quality finish.
Furthermore, laser marking can also be performed on uneven, curved, and even inclined surfaces.

What is silk-screen printing? It is a stencil method of printmaking in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink forced through the mesh onto the printing surface. Although generally having a higher initial cost due to requiring a creation of the print data and manufacturing of a board/mesh, it is however an extremely cost-efficient method for mass/large batch printing in single color.

By having the drill-head slightly milling the surface, the engraving of fine text or complex designs is able to be performed on a variety of surfaces, be it flat, curved, and so on.
Due to the insertion of the ink into the hollowed area, it is one of the most reliable form of printing in terms of ink peeling durability.
In addition, black anodized enclosures can be engraved, and having their underlying material exposed which can function as either text or logo.
Recommended to be utilized with aluminium die-cast type products which have high tolerance variances.

What is Anodization? Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface, such as an aluminium plate, into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Various colours, such as red, yellow, and blue, among others, can be achieved with the anodization process.
