The popularity of Maglites is immense worldwide. The reputation of Maglites has
developed because of their consistent high quality, and continual introduction of new ideas. So if you own a business and want to give away a Maglite engraved with your logo, here are some basic steps.
Decide which one you want. That depends on size and price.
Pick an online distributor that can answer all your questions.
Pick a color
Choose a gift set, which includes a pocket knife or Leatherman tool, or choose just a Maglite in a plastic case.
Submit your corporate logo in vector format. (eps, ai files, and sometimes pdf files are in vector format.) You won’t be able to open those first two files, but the engraver can. The laser engraving machine needs vector art.
Ask for an email proof, which is usually free, before your order is put into production.
Enjoy passing out your Maglites (Maglights) to your favorite customers, and to all your employees.
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.
