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.
Laser engraving is an art and a science. It requires a special laser engraving machine. Not all laser machines can properly engrave on anodized aluminum. Even if you have the right machine, you need to:
Try engraving some test pieces to find the right voltage
The right number of passes
The right position on the Maglite® barrel
The right size of imprint, so the logo doesn’t get distorted at the top and bottom edges.
Make a jig, so you can engrave all the barrels at the same exact place.
The best way to get a Maglite engraved is to find a professional engraver, and one that engraves Maglites® all the time. Of course, the internet is the best place to find such a company.
