It is possible to use coloring and printing to make hard capsules identifiable. Any of a diverse array of colors can be created though the use of tar colors, natural colors, and titanium oxide. It is possible to print letters, marks, etc. with designated ink colors. Three kinds of printing are possible: "axial printing," "rectified axial printing," and "roto printing."
