Graphic Overlays – The look of your product
The graphic overlay is the top layer in your membrane switch assembly. It is the interface that connects your device to the end user. Graphic overlays identify the product and provide direction on what a button will do when activated. The graphic overlay is the visual top component on a keypad.
Telamco utilizes the techniques necessary to produce membrane switch keypad graphics that are aesthetically pleasing. Overlays can include product branding, full color design and logos to support the product and awareness of your company. The way your overlay looks and feels are important aspects to consider as it is the first impression of your company and device. Graphic technologies include screen printing and digital imaging. We can provide different finishes to meet your cosmetic needs. Gloss, textured and anti-glare are possible options for your overlay. Embossing, button response and lighting are topics to consider when designing your membrane switch keypad and graphic overlay.
The appearance and sensory impact of your membrane switch can be improved using pillow embossed keys or a cosmetic rim emboss on the graphic overlay. Embossing creates a raised surface that can be completed on many buttons or a single button to provide differentiation.
