Y-Tex Imprinting methods
Y-Tex Tags can be printed by 3 different methods- Hot Stamp, Laser or Digital Ink.
We recommend Laser marking or Digital Ink for long lasting imprints.
Laser marking allows printing of complicated detail. It lasts the life of the tag, resist wear, fading and is abrasive proof. Laser color is a charcoal black/gray or silvery white color on black tags. Allflex uses only Laser Imprinting.
Digital Ink is a method that Y-Tex has perfected for its tags. It is a dark black, allows complicated detail for artwork and logos and last 8 years before fading.
Hot Stamp uses a foil dye for a dark, crisp, saturated imprint of color with a high contrast. This imprint will eventually fade over time leaving an embossed outline of the number or letter.
All 3 methods are useful for different reasons- decide how long you need to use the tag before fading is an issue. YTex uses all 3 imprinting methods.
