Graphic Designing & Consultation

Graphic design is a creative process, one most often involving a client and a designer, and is traditionally completed in conjunction with producers of form (printers, sign makers, etc.). Graphic design is undertaken to convey a specific message (or messages) to a targeted audience, usually from the client, known as the 'brief'. The term "graphic design" can also refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines that focus on visual communication and presentation. The field as a whole is also often referred to as Visual Communication or Communication Design. Various methods are used to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce a balanced, focused and symmetrical final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.

Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and branding), publications (magazines, newspapers and books), print advertisements, posters, billboards, website graphics and elements, signs and product packaging. For example, a product package might include a logo or other artwork, organized text and pure design elements such as images, shapes and color which unify the piece. Composition is one of the most important features of graphic design, especially when using pre-existing materials or diverse elements. Graphic Consultants usually work with customers to produce the desired finished product (Graphic Consultation).



Precision Engraving/Cutting of Almost Any Material

Laser engraving and laser cutting, is the practice of using lasers to engrave or cut an object/material. The technique does not involve the use of inks, nor does it involve tool bits which contact the engraving surface and wear out. These properties distinguish laser engraving from alternative engraving or marking technologies where inks or bit heads have to be replaced regularly. The impact of laser engraving has been more pronounced for specially-designed "laserable" materials. These include laser-sensitive polymers and novel metal alloys.

The term laser marking is also used as a generic term covering a broad spectrum of surfacing techniques including printing, hot-branding and laser bonding. The machines for laser engraving and laser marking are the same, so that the two terms are usually interchangeable.

We also sometimes use a CNC Router to mark or cut materials. A CNC router is a computer controlled shaping machine. A CNC router can be used in the production of many different items, such as door carvings, interior and exterior decorations, wood panels, sign boards, wooden frames, moldings, musical instruments, furniture, and so on.



Permanent Metal Marking (Laser Bonding/Cermarking)

Laser bonding (or Cermarking) is a marking technique that uses lasers and other forms of radiant energy to bond an additive marking substance to a wide range of materials.

Invented in 1997, this patent protected technology delivers permanent marks on metals, glass and ceramic parts for a diverse range of industrial and manual applications, ranging from aerospace to the awards & engraving industries. It differs from the more widely known techniques of laser engraving and laser ablation in that it is an additive process, adding material to the substrate to form the marking instead of removing it as in those techniques. For metals, parts can be permanently marked with high contrast, high resolution marks for logos, bar-coding, identification and serialization purposes, without damage to the substrate. With glass and ceramics, complex surfaces can be decorated or marked and the traditional firing process replaced by a laser, with its permanent bond fired on in seconds.

Laser bonding is often referred to as "CerMark”, "CerMarked" or "CerMarking". "CerMark" is a registered trademark of the Ferro Corporation, Cleveland Ohio, USA. This trademark, like Xerox, has become synonymous with the laser bonding process.

The marking process generally comprises three steps:
1. Application of the marking material
2. Bonding of the marking material with a laser.
3. Removal of excess, un-bonded material.
The resulting marking is fused to the substrate, and in most cases it is as durable as the substrate itself.



Full Colour Printing on All Surfaces

A heat press is a machine engineered to imprint a design or graphic on a substrate, such as a t-shirt, with the application of heat and pressure for a preset period of time. While heat presses are often used to apply designs to fabrics, they can also be used to imprint designs on mugs, plates, jigsaw puzzles, and many other products. This is used widely for promotional purposes but in most cases it fades away after a period of time, unlike engraving.
