Frequently Asked Questions

Decoration Options

Our experienced team will advise you what the best decoration method is for your chosen promotional products.

Pad Printing

Pad printing works well on most substrates such as wood, plastic, metals and paper. Different inks are available and vary depending on the product to be printed on. The ability to print on curved and unusual surfaces is the biggest advantage of pad printing.

Screen Printing

Flat,smooth, single layer surfaces are best suited to screen printing. Cottons, poly/cotton blends, most nylons, vinyl, calico, corflute and metal sheeting are all suitable. Screen printing produces strong vibrant spot or process prints on woven textiles, allowing relatively large images to be printed compared to alternative print processes.

Debossing, Embossing and Foil Stamping

These are the traditional way of decorating compendiums, diaries, card, leather products, vinyl, plastic, acrylic and wood. As long as the surface remains intact debossing will never rub off or disappear. Under normal conditions, foil stamping will not scratch or rub off.

Laser engraving

Any thing that produces a high contrast will produce the best engraving result. Best suited to metals however some plastics can also be engraved. Laser engraving is permanent and lasts for the life of the product.


Clothing, caps, towels, bags, satchels - woven surfaces work best with this process. Nylon, polyester, cotton drills, felt and knitted fabrics are next but require slightly varied program designs to compensate for the fabrics. As well as lasting for usually the life of your product embroidery is also colour fast, will not fade and has a fantastic quality finish. Lettering less than 3.55mm is generally too small to embroider.

What we need

A branded promotional product is a direct reflection upon your organisation. We want to ensure your corporate identity is crisp, clean and consistent.

Although we use state of the art printing processes, the final product will only look as good as the artwork submitted to us.

To avoid any art delays and/or art charges, we request 'vector' art - which generally is native to Adobe Illustrator created art files. Most often, the file will end, .eps, .svg or a vector based .pdf
