1. What do you mean with single characters (M1), multi characters (M2) and do it yourself (M3)?
Single characters, Standard, Method 1 (M1) are the same.
When using single characters, you use pre-printed characters and combine them yourself on a wire or pipe to display what you want.
Multi characters, Customized, Method 2 (M2)
You can send us a document or a file containing the information you want on a sleeve. We print the marker information for you. By doing this you don’t have to combine the information character by character yourself. (For more information, see question 2)
Do it yourself, Method 3 (M3)
You print your own markers on site by using a printer and software. You print your marker information on blank Partex profile.
