Yes, those were done using hydrographics. You can apply a wide array of patterns to almost any material using this process.

very cool stuff, my dad is actually thinking of contacting someone who can do this. Specifically he sells an array of things to car dealers and would love to do custom designs on license plate frames such as carbon fiber etc. Would you be the one to contact? PM me I'm sure my dad would love to get in touch
