With modern printing technology, your company logo can be printed in full color
on a Maglite® barrel. Sometimes this looks great. But sometimes, depending on the barrel color and your logo color, we have to lay down a light base color, so your real colors will look vibrant. This way, a dark barrel won’t show through the light colors of your logo. The drawback of this, is that the base color imprint might show at the edges of your logo.
Full color imprinting will last forever, unless something sharp scratches it. For a permanent imprint of your corporate logo, I suggest getting your Maglite engraved using modern laser technology. Laser engraving is actually scratched through the anodized layer and goes down into the aluminum barrel itself. It can’t be rubbed off or affected by scratching.
So your boss wants you to check into getting some Maglites® for the next safety awards meeting. He wants each Maglite engraved with the company logo, and “2018 Safety Award”.
Here are the 7 questions he wants you to find answers to….
Can we have them by the end of next month?
Are they available in our corporate colors of green and white?
Can I see a virtual proof before we order?
Can I see an actual sample of the flashlight laser engraved with our imprint, before they are put into production?
Can we stay within our budget?
What kind of art file is needed for the imprint? What is vector art?
Can we open an account, and have Net60 terms?
You can find the answers to all these questions by going online. Find a reputable vendor, and talk to him, to see if he can deliver what you want. If you have any doubts, just call the next vendor in line. The internet is a great place to solve problems like this. What did we do 40 years ago, without the internet? You might not have been able to get these 7 questions answered.
Everyone knows about the Larry Lights that hit the market about 5 years ago. They are super bright and very portable. They have a magnet so you can position them accurately when you are working on your car.
NEW in 2018 is the Larry Boss 6431, which is a 3 in 1 version of the original. This one has an extending and flexible magnet that gets that screw or bolt that you can’t reach. It retracts and hides away when you don’t need it. The light has 3 modes. White, red, and red flashing.
