Q: What exactly do we do?

Q: What types of decoration do we offer?
A: Hydrographics, paint, UV curables, pad printing, silk screen, and laser marking
Q: What is hydrographics and how does it work?
A: Hydrographics consists of floating a soluble printed film on water, activating the film to rewet the ink, and submerging a metal or plastic part through the wet ink into the water. The pattern is transferred to the three-dimensional part as it passes through the soluble film.

A: Wood grains, camouflage, brushed metals, and carbon fibers are the most popular. We work with multiple global film suppliers to bring the largest variety of patterns, including the ability to make custom designs.
