Printing using a mesh screen spread with ink. The ink is printed directly onto the surface, resulting in a clear finish.
Flat Surface Multicolored Printing
Flat multi-color printing
Ink is sprayed directly onto the surface. Full color printing is made possible by using jets of the four CMYK colors.
Laser Printing

Engraving carried out by a laser beam (light waves). The result can be changed depending on the printing difference, output and speed.
