Visual Marking Systems on target with crossbow printing on Inca Spyder

Visual Marking Systems, USA has been able to develop and expand their digital printing capabilities, in part thanks to the Inca Spyder. When approached by Horton Mfg to decorate a crossbow limb with a printing technique other than heat transfer, they had several problems to overcome.
