Harman-Texture-Screen-CUSpectra offers full screen printing services in multiple colors, graphics, and styles.  From branding to warning markings, screen printing provides that clean, durable, alternative to rubber stamping, etching, or other part marking methods.   We work with the customer to determine the right type of ink for the project and a color, or color scheme, that provides the right “look”.

Many Spectra customers have requested special individual wrapping and packaging for the final product.  Working with select packaging specialists Spectra helps the customer determine what individual packaging will best suit their needs.  Foam, bags, kraft paper, and other materials are available and the cost is economical.   Spectra also offers labeling of products that have been packaged.  Bar code labeling is available which allows a customer to receive parts from Spectra and place them immediately into inventory for sale.  This service is another customer solution we are pleased to offer.
