Question Dyeing ?

Hey everyone, so I'm about to send off some discs to Huk Labs to have the giant black Tri Fly dye put on them. But I'm confused by a few things and need some help clarifying how it all works?

So I notice on their website, they have lots of discs already for sale that have the large Dye on it WITH the stamp STILL on the disc. And I've noticed if you look closely at them, it looks like the Dye is sometimes underneath the stamp from the company! Which first of all, how does that even work? If they get the disc in from Discmania with the stamp already on it, THEN dye it, how do they get the dye underneath the stamp? That seems impossible. But it could be simple since I have no idea how they dye.

And then they do the opposite on other discs. They put the black dye on TOP of the stamp from the factory.

So does anyone know how they are doing that? Are they ordering blank discs from the company, putting their dye on it, THEN stamping it with the company stamp? Take the below discs for ex. How does it work? It never says on their website that you have to take the stamp off. It just states that if you take the stamp off it's 15 per disc. And if they take the stamp off it's 20 per disc.

But what if I just want the stamp to stay on there and have them put the dye under or over the stamp, like the majority of their discs show on the site? Can they do that? Because, if you look at these photos on their site, it looks like they can and do. But They don't really make that part clear.

This one looks like it has the Dye on TOP of the stamp


This one looks like it has the Dye UNDERNEATH the stamp


Thanks guys

So I've done some shaving cream dyes in the past with pretty solid results. So yesterday I went and snagged some black iDye Poly to do some straight up solid black dyes to cover up some ink. After letting a disc sit in dye for 8 hours, I pulled it and washed it. To my surprise...it's now purple instead of black. I would have thought that something as easy as a solid black dyed disc should be a no-brainer. I didn't use the color intensifier and I heated the dye after mixing like I usually do for my shaving cream dyes.

Any thoughts on what I need to change?
