Surface imprinting is a silk-screening process using a separate screen for each color. Durable epoxy paint is applied to the finish, building a rich and vibrant image. The product is oven-cured, bonding the epoxy imprint to the surface, where it becomes and integral part of the finish.

Zippo's laser colorfill method produces an attractive, durable imprint. A reversed image is silk-screened on the Zippo product with an acid-resistant paint. Leaving exposed only the areas to be etched, the product is dipped in an acid bath, which etched all unprotected areas. Paint colors are screened one at a time into the etched cavities, resulting in a colorful graphic that is permanently defined in the surface. While this is the best option for printing on Zippo lighters, it is only available on certain styles of lighters. These include the Brushed Chrome Zippo Lighter (#200), High Polish Chrome Zippo Lighter (#250), Slim Brushed Chrome Zippo Lighter (#1600) and Slim High Polish Chrome Zippo Lighter (#1610) lighters.
Create your own Custom Lighter using Etch and Print process from Tobacco Barn.


The procedure for luster etch is the same as etch and paint through the acid bath. No colors are used for luster etch; instead, the product is etched and then plated. Skillful hand or machine buffing defines the high and low areas of the design to create a subtle dimensional effect.
