Crescent's Injection Molded Part Decoration Methods

Pad Printing for Plastic Parts

Pad printing involves a silicone pad picking up ink from a "negative" image of the design and transferring it to the part. Because the pad can meet the piece's shape, this process is ideal for rounded components, irregular surfaces, and complex shapes.

Laser Marking, Engraving, Etching for Plastic Products

Laser marking oxidizes the plastic material just below the surface, applying a text or design while retaining a smooth finish. On the other hand, laser engraving removes a small amount of material at the surface, creating recessed text or design. And laser etching requires melting material and creating a raised mark on the product's surface.
