Our continual monitoring of market requirements and our in bred interest in new technologies have pushed us towards consistent investment in the field of personalising applying the most appropriate techniques on a great number of items of our range and even in small quantities.
Personalising your equipment not only offers you the possibility of advertising yourself but it also offers a simple and useful tracing method on the scene of emergency which in addition permits group and role identification.
- Pre-spaced decals
Production of computer designed cut-out or pre-punch cut letters and logos onto adhesive plastic material, which can also be reflective, in any colour.
Advantages: sharp borders and bright colours. Reflective film with strong and long lasting adhesion.
Limits: only two or three colours can be used together.
- Built In
Different to other ink pressure transfer systems and traditional adhesive labels, this exclusive system produces an external film on the surface of the item, which contains the writings or logos. The fusion process creates an indestructible link encapsulating the image in the polymeric matrix. With this method the image will not wear off under the influence of atmospheric/chemical substances, solvents, UV rays or abrasion.
Advantages: ong-lasting and absolutely indestructible personalisation. Colour definition and Pantone chromatism guaranteed. It is ideal for use on items made of medium and high density polyethylene for an unlimited duration.
Limits: no more than three colours can be used. This type of personalisation is ideal for larger quantities and has quite a high branding and one-off initial set up cost. The initial graphic creation is quite time consuming.
- Hot printing
Production of computer designed cut-out or pre-punch cut letters and logos onto thermo sensitive material, which can also be reflective, in any colour. Transfers are used to reproduce letters or graphic applications onto fabric, thanks to the heat transferring method. Transfers guarantee covering even on the darkest materials, perfect and long-lasting printing, resistance to washing.
Advantages: sharp borders and possibility to use reflective material. This technique allows the realisation of promotionals with different personalisations, allowing the addition of a different name on every product.
Limits:only two or three colours can be used together.
- Silk screen printing
The silk screen printing process is quite simple and is based on the concept of leaving the liquid colour to filter in a controlled manner, through a very tightly woven sieve (frame) called ?screen?, to the underlying surface, positioned immediately in contact with the screen.
Advantages: it is one of the most popular techniques. The personalisation can be carried out practically on any type of material (nylon, ABS, cloth, wood, plastic and others) with a good coverage and nice effect on both flat and curved surfaces.
Limits: it is quite difficult to coincide the colours together, or rather to achieve a rigorously uniform print. It does not allow the production of fine details.
Tampography is a more refined method of printing compared to silk screen printing. It makes use of semi-automated machinery, which is precise and quick. This printing method is particularly appropriate in the reproduction of images, even on curved surfaces. It does not require a loom and actually works on a plate system, using a silicon pad which takes a certain quantity of ink from the plate and transfers it to the surface of the object, a similar system to offset printing.
Advantages: it allows the reproduction of fine details, thin lines and shading. It allows the personalisation of objects of various forms, with flat or curved surfaces.
Limits: the ink used is not strong enough for a good covering, even if it is bright and longlasting. It is therefore not the best method for vast backgrounds designed to contrast with dark surfaces.
This procedure involves the use of a microneedle guided by the computer, which engraves the surface of the material, leaving the information required. The micro-needle engraves the item permanently and with exceptional precision. The material of the product determines the colour of the engraving. This system achieves extraordinary results on materials such as crystal, metal and plastic.
Advantages: the final effect of the personalisation is one of the most exclusive and refined. The quality of detail is amazing and the personalisation is virtually indestructible over time. This technique allows the realisation of promotionals with different personalisations, allowing the addition of a different name on every product.
Limits: printing colours cannot be used and only a few items can be considered for this type of personalisation. It is possible to engrave only flat surfaces or those with small angles.
Usually injection moulds are made of a special type of steel which guarantees an exceptional detail of any logo that will remain unchanged in time. The high quality of the finished product is guaranteed by highly specialised experience in different types of material and their uses.
Advantages: monolithic, resistant and absolutely permanent. Exact definition of the logo is obtained on plastic, aluminium, zama. The definition on thermoplastics and rubber is not quite as precise as the previous. It is however a good method for printing on plastics materials, aluminium, rubber silicone and heat sensitive resins.
Limits: colours other than that of the actual item cannot be used. It is ideal for larger quantities. The cost of the moulds are decisively higher and should therefore be distributed over production of a larger quantity of products. The initial costs will therefore be completely absorbed over the total number of items produced.
This is a digital printing onto an adhesive label. It is covered by a layer of epoxy resin, that creates a "lens effect" above the print.
Advantages: it is ideal for logos that have more than one colour, because it allows up to eight colours to be used without additional costs. The layer of resin protects the colour from natural fading caused by long periods in the sun. It is possible to produce very fine details.
Limits: it is a method that can only be used on certain types of products.
This technique enhances the elegance of the logo: the message is embroidered onto the surface of the object. The embroidery can be carried out on flat or cylindrical surfaces.
Advantages: it is ideal for brands and designs that have more than one colour. It allows the use of up to eight colours without any additional costs. It is particularly recommended for hats, tops, jumpers, bags, rucksacks and tapes. This technique allows the realisation of promotionals with different personalisations, allowing the addition of a different name on every product.
Limits: this method of personalisation can only be used on fabric. It is not possible to reproduce fine details, backgrounds or excessively elaborate designs.
The clamps used for vacuum moulding of metacrylic sheets, polypropylene, PVC, PST and ABS typically permit stability also of the impressed logo. It is used where structural consistency, at the same time lightweight, is required.
Advantages: indestructible personalisation for a high level of communication. It can be used for medium production quantities using moulds made of wood or resin. The initial cost of the mould can be amortised with time.
Limits: colours cannot be used so in conditions of poor light the logo cannot be distinguished. While the technology behind this type of production is being continually improved, the definition of the logo, which must have strictly simplified outlines, is low.
