Lid Printing
Academia can screen print most devices with your logo – giving a greater sense of ownership and security.

Security Marking
There are various methods of security marking from stencil etching, DNA paint and SmartWater to customised, permanent artwork. These security marks are used to deter theft by removing the appeal of the equipment and the resale opportunity. A security marked item also increases the opportunity of reuniting the product with its rightful owner if lost or stolen. Academia can provide a range of security marking services including printing your organisation logo on the screen backs.
