"How A 5A Is Made" Part 6: Printing
In this step of the process: All of our sticks are printed with the official red and black Vic Firth logo along with the stick model type and size. The logo being printed is etched into a steel plate, ink is then poured over the plate and scraped away, leaving only the ink in the etching. Then a silicone rubber pad grabs the logo etching off the steel plate and stamps it onto the stick. There are two separate stamps: 1 for the red ink portion, and one for the black ink portion.
