Our expertise involves tight cutting tolerances, tight print registration and perfect color matching.


Overlays are critical and give your product its visual representation to end-users. They are oftentimes your product’s first impression and give it “the look”. Overlays are commonly the most identifiable component on your product, directing the end-user around the keypad, often representing what each button will do.

Custom color matching and branding are critical, and we’ve got the technology and experience to do the job. We can also help your designers choose the best materials and functionality for your application.

We work with any type of overlay, including screen prints and digital prints, embossing, custom textures, transparent inks, metallic inks, poly domes, contour cuts, thermal die-cuts and outdoor logos.
