07 - Do you have a minimum order?

No - we don’t have a specific “minimum order” quantity and are happy to provide quotations on whatever quantity you require however we do not recommend producing very small quantities as the higher unit prices applicable together with the set-up charges incurred can make the order uneconomical.

Talk to us about your specific requirements and we will advise possible alternative options to ensure a suitable outcome for you at a reasonable cost. Please note that custom made products and those sourced from our network of offshore suppliers may have higher minimums dependent on the product involved.

Items that are custom made or produced offshore can take up to 10-12 weeks or longer dependent on the product and quantity ordered. Please contact us to confirm we can meet your delivery requirements if you have a specific deadline to achieve.

09 - I don't actually have a logo; can I use an image off the Web?

10 - What kind of artwork do I need to supply?

We prefer vector based .eps files with all text converted to outline as this format provides us with the best quality to work with. As a general rule, we can't use bitmap files (JPEGs, GIFs, e-mail or web graphics), Microsoft PowerPoint files, or clip art as they do not provide the quality we require. If you do not have the type of file we require then let us know as we can provide typesetting and artwork creation services for a very reasonable fee; simply contact us for a quotation.

11 - What is a set-up charge?

In order to customise an item our branding specialists must transfer the artwork provided into a format that works for their specific machines - this may require the production of screen-printing screens, pad printing plates, embroidery programmes or custom die-blocks dependent on the specific customising method used. This process is referred to as "set-up".

12 - Do I get to see a proof before my item is produced?

We usually provide an electronic proof to ensure the accurate reproduction of your branding requirements. Physical proofs can be provided on request however these may incur additional charges and require extended production time to fulfil. For rush orders we may not be able to provide proofs due to time constraints.
