If you are looking to develop custom portable speakers, you may have come across some of the Boombotix projects over the years. Some of the top artists and musicians trust Boombotix with their brand identity. The use Boombotix because they know the sound is great and the quality is the best in the game. In this article, we are going to explain some of the various printing technologies that we use to achieve a wide variety of custom speaker effects. 

Boombotix uses a wide variety of print technologies to give us the ultimate versatility, speed and quality in all of our custom products.

Digital

This method utilizes specially configured printers that can quickly lay down high resolution imagery onto metal surfaces. Digital printing on custom speaker projects are great when users are looking to do designs on just the flat speaker grill with a high level of detail. Digital printing has fast turnaround time in under one week.

Sublimation

Leverages a heat press to evaporate ink permanently onto a specially treated grill. This method is extremely durable and great for projects under 1000 pieces. The process works very similar to the way some t-shirts are pressed, however the metal has to be specially coated with a thermal paint to be able to accept the ink.

A common question is what is the benefit of digital printing versus sublimation. It is fairly subtle, but the sublimation process takes about double the amount of time/labor. On the flip-side, sublimation tends to provide a modestly more durable coating.

Water Transfer

This technique is used for creating patterns/wraps around the product. It is typically only reserved for larger scale projects exceeding 1000 pieces as the film creation is challenging. The film is immersed in a chemical that essentially liquifies the film into paint. The parts are dipped into the paint before drying and curing. We have a massive library of textures available, or we can also make custom films from any digital file.

Here are some examples of projects we’ve done an their various printing requirements.
