It uses silicone pads to transfer ink from etched metal plates onto surfaces with complex shapes or curves – such as swag items like mugs, pens, keychains and more!

Etching: Personalize your favorite mug with a unique etching! You can achieve this through either sandblasting or laser engraving. Sandblasting begins by applying the logo stencil onto the surface of the mug - then, a fine layer of sand is blasted to create an etched impression that won't wash away.
