What Are Mirrored Imprints and Why Do We Love Them?

Mirror, mirror, on the pen? Yep! These might be the finest imprints of all. There’s no quicker way to add an elegant touch to your branding than with this stylish imprint method. But what exactly is a mirrored imprint? Much like it sounds, this imprint method shows off your branding with mirrored lettering.

Let’s face it, shiny things catch our eye. That’s why we love diamonds, glitter, gold coins, and freshly waxed cars. As basic an idea as it may seem, the way these imprints shine is what makes them so attractive to customers. And since you want customers looking at your branding, this imprint method is both aesthetically and functionally ideal.

How We Make Mirrored Imprints

To create mirrored imprints, we use a laser to cut away the soft touch rubber finish on the barrel and reveal the layer of mirror underneath. It’s the same process we use to create all of our laser imprinted items. The only difference is that traditional laser engraving exposes the aluminum or stainless steel beneath, while this exposes a mirror.

Only One Type of Mirror? Think Again!

You’re familiar with the type of mirror you use to get ready in the morning, but when it comes to mirror imprints, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You can get mirror imprints in blue, red, purple, and tons of other tints. Here are a few of our favorite ways to use mirrored imprints in your branding:

Rose Gold Mirror

For rosy promotions, go with rose gold mirrored imprints, like on the Alpha Soft Touch Stylus Pen.

Gold Mirror

Strike gold with the Soft Touch Falon Slim Stylus Pen. This pen has gold accents at the nose cone, clip, and stylus that call even more attention to the gold mirrored logo.

Silver Mirror

The classic! Silver mirrored imprints like on this Soft Touch Arlington Stylus Pen bring a showy glimmer to the sleek, modern design.

Mirrored Imprint vs. Full Color Inkjet

Of course there’s more than one imprint process to choose from. One of our other top quality imprint types is the Full Color Inkjet. That’s a process which uses a special type of printer to exhibit perfect color shading on your logo. Weighing one imprint process against the other means taking a few factors into consideration. Let’s walk through the best pro’s each has to offer.

Benefits of Mirrored Imprints

  • No Logo? No Worries – For brands who don’t have a logo, this imprint is a great way to make a noticeable statement with nothing more than your company name.
  • Razzle Dazzle ‘Em – A little flash goes a long way to impressing potential clients.
  • Modern Style – Show clients that your brand is up-to-date with current trends.

Benefits of Full Color Inkjet Imprints

  • Show Your Logo the Way It’s Meant to Look – You’ve put a lot of work into crafting the right logo for your brand. Full Color Inkjet lets you display that logo on items without compromising on its vibrancy.
  • Eye-Catching Colors – Grab a client’s attention with radiant colors they can’t miss.
  • Send a Fun Message – A splash of color in your branding shows that your company has a fun, innovative, and light-hearted side.

So there’s not only tons of options for which kind of imprint process you choose, but which type of mirrored imprint you go with as well. Are you ready to get customers seeing themselves as a part of your brand? Then these reflective imprints will be the perfect match.
