Custom Flash Drive Printing Methods
The following methods are available for printing your logo onto a USB drive:
Through the silk-screening process, also known as screen-printing, ink is used to imprint the image or logo onto the material. To create this look, the image is first transformed into a stenciled screen through exposing film positives to light. Each color used in the image requires a different screen, which also requires drying time in-between printing.
In the four-color process method, filters and screens digitally separate the image into four different colors: black, yellow, cyan, and magenta. The four distinct images are transferred onto printing plates and loaded into a printing press, Similar to a computer printer, thousands of color combinations can be created through mixing the four colors.
The hot stamp method creates a deboss, meaning the imprinted logo looks sunken into the material. The design is first transformed onto a metal relief die or plate. This plate is heated up and then stamped onto the printing surface.
Employing the laser etching method, we create engravings through the use of a high-powered beam of light. The artwork is transferred onto the material through sending the laser through a template, as it vaporizes everything that is exposed.
Through using a foil or laser stamp, logos can be imprinted with material made of metallic and colored foils. This method allows logos to be transferred onto many types of surfaces: paper, leather, even vinyl. A deboss effect can be created to finish the look.
