Personalised highlighters emphasise your brand like no other
Rather than black or opaque ink, a highlighter has a felt tip that is filled with transparent fluorescent ink and was created in 1963 by Carters Ink Company which was later acquired by Dennison Corporation. Constant underlining and circling of words would come to a halt as this stationary giant made its way onto the scene. It is rare that personalised highlighters do not come in bright and vibrant colours that stand out much like the colour of ink that they contain. While yellow is the most common variation, you will also find orange, pink, blue and green as well as even more. Having multiple personalised highlighters could be a huge plus for someone who is meticulous with their organisation as they can colour code the important sentences that they are highlighting. Another way in which people benefit from multiple colours of the highlighter is with a model in which there is already more than one colour at their disposal. Creative shapes of personalised highlighters have started to appear, such as triangles, squares, stars and even hand shapes. While the standard stick model is still the staple of what we would consider the classic highlighter, new trends have shown the arrival of exciting and original designs.
Who knew that highlighters could be so diverse? Dry highlighters use a small skinny strip of highlighter tape instead of a felt tip, which can be more useful for reversing the marking, however, they have less popularity when compared with the classic. Gel highlighters have found a nice solution to the problem of the felt tip drying out. They use a gel stick in the core rather than a felt tip and the gel does not dry out in the same way. Liquid highlighters are considered to be more effective in making words stand out from the page as they apply more ink to the page than a standard highlighter however the well known and well-loved style is and always has been the classic.
A technique known as tampography or pad printing is used for printing your designs onto the personalised highlighters, as the silicone pad that is used has great versatility to print on different shaped objects with equal success.
