Branding

Q: Why can’t I preview my logo on a product directly on the website?

Answer

Virtual logo preview tools cannot accurately depict your logo on a product (for instance, it can’t notify you if the logo is the wrong size for the branding area for the specific product and if the logo isn’t optimised correctly it may affect the quality of the end product). Leave it to our experienced Artwork Team to treat your design with the attention it deserves in order to have it look its best on your chosen products – at no extra cost!

Q: What is a setup fee?

Answer

A setup fee is to cover the costs involved in creating the templates for branding, setting up of the machines and required materials for the branding process as well as for the manual labour involved in branding your products.

Q: Do you do branding?

Answer

Yes. All the products on our site are brandable. We take care of the full branding process making it easy for you to order through us.

Q: How do your branding prices work?

Answer

Branding prices depend on how many colours are in the print, the type of branding and in how many positions your logo will be branded on your product.

Q: How must I supply my artwork?

Answer

We require your artwork in vector format. Click here for more information on Artwork formats.

Q: What is vector artwork?

Answer

Vector images are made up of smooth lines seperating different parts and colours in your artwork. Click here to have a look at our Artwork Guide for more information.

Q: What are PMS or Pantone Colours?

Answer

PMS or the Pantone Matching System is a standard colour matching system that uses numerical codes for each colour. That way, we can find the exact match for your colours in your design and use the same exact colours each time you place an order.

Q: How can I pay for my order?

Answer

An Electronic funds transfer (EFT) is our preferred method of payment. Company purchase orders and payments online via credit cards are also accepted by prior arrangement. We also accept Cash payments, which incur a 1.75% handling fee as well as Cheque payments which require 7 working days to clear before proceeding or releasing goods.
