We can match to a color swatch, a Pantone chip, or to your bezel or housing, and we ensure the results with our calibrated light booth and digital densitometers. We also feature the latest digital printing technologies, allowing you to specify virtually [most] any type of background pattern or look that you are trying to achieve. If you can think it, we can print it!
Some graphic overlays will require a rugged material that can withstand scratches, chemical abrasion, or extreme temperatures or conditions. Because we print underneath this surface, all the graphics are perfectly protected by the overlay (called subsurface printing). We can even select materials with innate UV protectants to help preserve a “like new” appearance in these outdoor environments.
We work with you to specify the proper adhesive for your application, addressing environmental requirements, appearance, and other performance objectives. And we have the knowledge and skills on staff to solve complex challenges across many variables.
Embossed features can dramatically enhance the look and functionality of a graphic overlay. We have the in-house expertise needed to execute pillow, rim, and dome embossing. Plus, we can emboss logos, multi-level shapes, and other unique dimensional elements.
By selecting appropriate materials and surface treatments, we help our customers create truly custom user experiences with unique textures and finishes. The right inks can add another whole dimension of design freedom, as does the ability to screen print. A selective texture will enhance both the look and the feel of the product.
Graphic Overlay Materials
Graphic overlays can be made using a variety of materials depending on the environment the final product will operate in. Withstanding harsh conditions, enhancing usability, and building your brand are all considerations you should keep in mind during the selection process.
Marine Audio Sound System: Solved
See how we created a graphic overlay for a unique product
JL Audio, a global electronics manufacturer, approached JN White® for assistance with an electronic graphic overlay solution. The customer needed a thermoformed part that would fit the customer’s housing and stay properly bonded. JN White® was able to develop a dome-shaped graphic overlay that successfully met all requirements. In addition, the custom adhesive solution proposed by JN White® successfully holds the overlay in place. The component is in use today on one of the customer’s premier marine audio systems.

"Very pleased with your team's response to our need during the COVID-19 crisis."
Lisa L., Medical Device
"JN White has been exceptional in working with our company in order to develop the look and feel of our new MRI patient worn transmitter. We had originally worked with a prior manufacturer for an earlier version of this product with much less desirable results. JN White delivered a clean professional product at a very reasonable price on time!"
Gary P., Medical
"We had very little information to work with and Jessica James made it nearly effortless on our end to get us exactly what we needed in a timely manner."
Lexi W., Industrial Equipment
"Getting any after-market graphic overlays done always has a certain risk factor in getting it all right. You guys were helpful, patient, & knowledgeable to achieve the best end result. Even pointing out some things that might be [an] oversight or [areas for] improvements. The outcome was perfect."
John S., Technology

The end result product is perfect!"
