Kydex Printing

Done a lot of reading and want to start making my own holsters. I have a White Hat Maxtuck IWB and it has a logo printed on the kydex part. Does anyone know how to print on Kydex? On kydex.com the only thing it said is something about ink type which doesn't answer my question. Do you need a special printer? Is it another process?

We used to "hot stamp" gold leaf and other colors onto plastic when I worked for an advertising specialty company years ago. Takes a special machine.

You could also emboss/brand kydex using a steel or brass stamp that's heated.

If you had a computer, you could google ink stamping kydex and it would give you a link like this:

Actually, it's easier to stamp the leather than the kydex.

Good luck!

Thanks my google skills are lacking. I kept googling things to do with printing on kydex did not realize you could stamp it. I found dye sublimation printing but was confused.
