The different marking techniques

 

Serigraphy

A marking method used for marking textile, luggages, umbrellas. The technique involves passing ink or paint through a stencil (called a screen).
The screen is made of an aluminum frame to which a polyester mesh is attached. This mesh is coated with a photosensitive gelatin on which is positioned a transparent film, in which the desired pattern is printed. Then, by making the gelatin react with ultraviolet light, this changes and leaves only the unexposed parts (those hidden by the film) permeable. The ink then passes only on these parts.
There are as many screens to prepare and passages to make, as colors to print.
The price calculation is based on the number of colors, depending on the material of the substrate (nylon, cotton, paper) and the color of the substrate. (On Dark colors, a sublayer is needed).

 

Embroidery

The embroidery is made from industrial machines. It is also possible to make crests. To make an embroidery, it is necessary to have a support rather soft, but especially one that can be positioned flat on the rim. Then, on the latter, the metal circle is positioned which holds the support taut. Embroidery is possible with matt, glossy, metallic or fluorescent thread. Gradient is not possible. The price calculation is not based on the number of colors but on the number of points. The fuller a logo is, the more points there will be.

 

Tampography

This method is a technique of transferring the ink contained in the hollow of a plate (similar to the screen printing for the films) onto a pad (smooth and flexible silicone material). This stamp strikes the object to be marked. Knowing that a resin support is manufactured according to the object for a setting of the latter. So there are as many stamps and passages to be made as there are colors to be printed. The price calculation is based on the number of colors, depending on the material (if polypropylene then flaming the object and if metal degreasing thereof) and if a resin support is to be manufactured. In addition it is necessary to count all the unpacking and re-packaging (if it takes place) of the objects.

 

Laser

The laser marking is realized by etching the materials with a high intensity light beam, through a lens.
With this system, we burn the material (wood, metal, plastic, glass ...) on a slight depth. Please note that, the final rendering of a laser marking can only be confirmed after testing the desired product. Indeed depending on the alloys of materials, the renderings can be very variable (tone on tone, black, red ...)The price calculation is based on a marking surface of less than 5 cm 2, depending on the surface to be marked (metal different from wood) and include unpacking and re-packaging.
