- The material being marked and its surface condition.
- The production line speed.
- How fast the ink needs to dry.
- The temperature of the material and its surrounding environment.
- The desired characteristics of the printed mark: temporary/permanent, must withstand heat/fluids/weather/abrasion/etc.
