Text On Parts
An added benefit to injection molding parts is the ease of incorporating logo’s, labels, instructions or diagrams right onto your custom parts.
This helps to reduce or eliminate secondary costs often incurred with labeling and ensures clear and precise identification of your custom plastic parts.
If you require a logo, label or text to be incorporated into your plastic parts, try to keep a couple things in mind.
Text is often easier to incorporate if it is raised rather than recessed into your part design, however at Xcentric we are capable of creating a wide array of inset text and labels for all of your custom part requirements.
Use clear bold letters typically 20 or higher point size for readability and ease of milling.
A suggested height / depth for lettering is just 0.02 inches so do not feel you have to raise your lettering to help it stand out.
Keep your font selection simple and try to avoid serif fonts. Serif fonts tend to incorporate curls or squiggle to the ends of the letters making them difficult to mil.
