As it known to all, if we want to make an item branded with a logo (actually it is the very

method that we obtain the customized products), there are different branding ways for

us to choose from.  Possibly you have some trouble in making the choice?  In this page,

we would like to help you to tell the difference between the different branding solutions. 

 

Solution 1: Silk-screen Printing 

_____________________________________________________________________________

www.eletrekusb.com     It is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to 
    support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired
    image. Basically, 
it is the process of using a mesh-
    based stencil to apply ink onto  a 
substrate, whether
    it is T-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or other
 
    materials. 
 It is the most universally used printing
way for many industries, 
especially for the items we are producing.  Usually it is a cheaper

solution for a logo consisted of 1-3 colors, not containing gradient colors.


 

Solution 2:  Full-color Printing
_____________________________________________________________________________

www.eletrekusb.com    It is also called digital printing, defined comparing to
    silk printing.  Full-color printing supports a reproduc-
    tion of a colorful image or logo contains 4 or more
    colors or gradient colors.  In other words, if a logo or 
    image contains 4 or more colors, or it contains gradient
    color, full color printing is the best and necessary way
to present it perfectly.

 

 

Solution 3:  Laser Engraving

_____________________________________________________________________________

www.eletrekusb.com    Laser engraving is the practice of using a laser machine
    to engrave or mark an object.   For the industry, it is the
    mostly applied on items that made of wooden / bamboo
   or metal. It is very obvious the laser engraved contents
   (a LOGO or an image or some words) will be kept onto
   the item permanently.  It is the core advantage of laser
 engraving, comparing to screen printing or color printing.  

 

Solution 4:  Pad Printing
_____________________________________________________________________________

www.eletrekusb.com    Pad printing is a printing process that can transfer a
   2D Logo / words or image onto a 3D object.  
   It is applied in many industries especially gift industry.  
   Since there are many items with scraggly surfaces, in-
   cluding cylindrical, spherical, compound angles, tex-
   tures, concave, or convex surfaces.  It is very difficult
to print onto the scraggly surfaces, so pad printing Is an important way to solve the problem.  

 
 
Solution 5:  Debossing
_____________________________________________________________________________
www.eletrekusb.com    Debossing is a technique which creates a depressed
    pattern or logo on
 paper or leather materials.  For USB
    Flash memories, it usually means
 heat embossing,
    which is done by special powder, ink or a heat source.
