Our color filled personalized
chopsticks offer the option of adding color over the top of, or
rather inside the engraved text on your chopsticks. The process
involves 1st typesetting your personalized chopstick order
and engraving it. (This is done after any needed proofs have been
approved, and all questions have been answered). Next, the color your
selected when ordering your color filled chopsticks is matched to our
selection of custom acrylic paints. The paint is then applied to the
personalized chopstick over the existing text engraving. Time is
allowed for the first coat to dry, and then any excess paint is
removed from the chopstick. After a careful inspection, the
personalized chopstick then has a 2nd coat of your
selected color applied to it. This too is allowed to stand and dry,
and then a 2nd chopstick cleanup is applied, removing any
excess paint. After a careful inspection, the process of applying a
color touch up may be repeated for any color still requiring it.
Then, your personalized chopsticks (now finished with color) are
allowed to dry for a few days.
Compared to a normal laser text
engraving, the process of making color filled chopsticks is
exponentially more difficult and time consuming, and of course
requires more materials in terms of paint and cleaning materials.
This is why the prices for our color filled chopsticks are so much
higher than for our regular engraved chopstick sets. This is also why
the majority of our customs unltimately go with our regular engraved
chopstick pairs – its a much faster (in terms of delivery) and
easier order all the way around.
It should also be noted that special
care should be used when cleaning these personalized chopsticks –
soaking in water, or using a dishwasher will rode the paint, so
