Why You Can’t Get A Maglite Engraved In Color

Most metal and smooth wood and synthetic material can be laser engraved. And some smooth wood and synthetic material can then be color-filled with a paint-like product. But when it comes to putting a color-fill on metal, you’re dreaming in the last century. It was possible to laser engrave and color fill metal at that time, but everyone quit doing it because of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Zippo was a leading company that used that process of color imprinting. It was a good way of imprinting, because the color couldn’t scratch off. It was in the debossed part of the design.

So, back to 2019, you can’t get a metal object like a Maglite engraved and color-filled. But that’s not a big problem, since most Maglites are made of anodized aluminum. The color of the aluminum shows through the laser engraving once the laser removes the surface layer of color. The Maglite then shows your logo as being whitish. Even if you order a gray colored Maglite, the engraving isn’t very noticeable, but the look is fashionable.

Another way of getting MagLites® with your Full Color Imprint  is “full-color surface printing”. This technique was just developed in the last 10 years. Every printing company has its own name for this process. “Color Rich”, “Spectra Color”, and “ColorVast” are some of the trade names.
