Personalization of USB-sticks with logo-printing or engraving: Most of our USB-Sticks (logo, engraving), MP3-Players, Laser Pointers, USB-Ballpoint Pens, Mice, etc. can be engraved and/or printed. It depends on the surface of each product. We would be glad to advice you, if engraving or printing can be recommended and what is possible on your stick. With every order, you will always receive a photo-montage with your logo by email for release. On request, we will produce a logo-montage (free of charge) in advance to help you with your decision. Just send us your vectorized logo (logo data see FAQ).

Laser engraving

Laser engraving

First off: If there is the possiblility to have your present engraved - we always recommend it.

Laser engraving on promotional items, f.ex. USB-Stick with logo, has some advantages compared to printing. It can be done faster (to meet a deadline), it is absolutely permanent and resistant (no wearout). In addition, engraving is more precise and subtle than printing. With the aid of latest laser engraving machines, we are able to apply laser-engraving to aluminum and metal as well as certain types of plastic fast and highly precise. There are two ways of applying a laser inscription: First, there is 2D-laser engraving, where usually an engraving-depth of approx. 0.05 mm up to 0.2 mm is reached. On the other side, there is temper colour labeling, recommended for some metals because there is no material loss; the material is changing its colour with heat introduction. The fine laser beam is responsible for the vaporization of the material.


After we receive your vectorised logo-file, a program will be written hereof. All data will be archived and can be reused, if you would like to place a repeat order for the identical laser-motif.


Common use:

- Safe, permanent branding of different advertising and promotional items
- Material: stainless steel, aluminum, brass, chrome, ...
- Engraving on certain types of plastic after consultation and testing of the material

- Absolutly sharp outlines and precise reproduction of logos, pictograms, word marks and text lines
- Scratch-resistant and permanent
- Hardly any fluctuation in quality
- Engraving of individual single names is possible
- Follow-up orders are unproblematic

We need a vectorised (converted to path) .eps
Formats: .cdr (Corel), .ai (Illustrator),.fh (Freehand), .eps

Pad printing method

Pad printing fills life with colours!


This printing method experienced a stormy development over the past 20 years. Using silicone rubber for printing („pad“) was important for its success, because silicone rubber can be shaped perfectly and easily. Silicone rubber is also ink repellent and therefore guarantees an excellent ink transfer. And, with so-called pad printing machines, it is now possible to apply logos, decors, symbols, names, etc. onto uneven items - and not only that, yet even on a vide variety of different materials - in a direct print process without a loss in quality.

Pad printing belongs indirectly to the printmaking technique Intaglio. Into a flat plate, called cliché (here mostly magnet screen clichés) incisions are created by etching: the print image. These incisions are filled with ink. A smooth, flexible stamp made of silicone rubber (silicone is ink repellent), absorbs some ink while being pressed down, and transfers it to the object. This stamp is called "pad" and gave this printing method its name.

Pad printing offers a variety of individual solutions on how to print a vide variety of different objects made of different materials: metal, wood, glass, ceramic, plastic, cardboard, leather, etc., for a personalizaiton or functional inscription on the item to be printed.

Advantages: Due to the flexibility of silicone rubber, the "pad" can adjusts to the print object while the colour is transfered. Therefore, it is possible to print uneven surfaces. Selection or shape of the "pad" depend on the shape of the print object, the print image type, and size and position of the print image. By using height compensation devices, prints with different heights can be accomplished at the same time. Pad printing in different colours is also possible, but depends on motif and passer. Please contact us for further information. We would like to ask you to take into consideration, that during the drying process, all printed items have to pass a drying tunnel, but the proper and necessary hardening can take between 5 to 7 days. Depending on the material! Special colours are only available on request.

We need a vectorized (type to path) eps with exact colour-specifications of the desired ink in PANTONE, RAL or HKS.
