They use pad printing for production pieces.

For customs, you could try waterslide decals.

Thanks for the reply. to be specific I would like to know the method of printing used on BLACK BUBBLE 8" (2006) Tilt and COLETTE SERIES 3" (2007) Geoff McFetridge. These look very complicated are they still pad printed or another method?

They also use copper masks shaped to the contours and the paint for the masks is applied via airbrush....and then of course there is the brush. So it's a combo of the 3. Pad printing, Masks, and brush.
