Application

You can choose from a wide variety of materials in various thicknesses.

Clear anodised aluminium is an excellent choice for high-resolution printing with our industrial printing process. The only restriction is that it is not possible to print white.

For colour-anodised aluminium we offer both digital printing (UV printing) and laser engraving. The colour-anodised layer of the material is removed on lasered areas during the laser-engraving process. The white layer that is uncovered now is used to present the motif.

For transparent and coloured acrylic, we offer digital printing (UV printing). This can be applied to both the front and the rear side.

Printed circuit board material FR4 is offered as a special item. However, neither printing nor engraving of this material are possible.

Read more in our FAQs where you can also, for example, find tips on what you need to pay attention to when compiling your data.

Please note that anodised materials always have bare cut edges (untreated aluminium). This is also true of any engraving on these materials.
