Can I see a sample?

The short answer- absolutely! When it comes to our in-stock items, we’re delighted to provide complimentary samples that are yours to keep. It’s a great way for you to experience the product first-hand, pressure-free.

There may be instances where we kindly request the return of samples, if they are the sole remaining items in stock. We want to ensure that others can view them as well!

I don’t have any artwork to send you / my logos are not in the correct format, what can I do?

We recommend sending us your artwork in vector graphic format, specifically, Illustrator EPS. However, if you don’t have access to this, don’t worry! Simply send us what you have, and our exceptional in-house graphics team will step in to assist you with the design.

The best part? This service is provided to you completely free of charge! We firmly believe in helping you every step of the way to bring your vision to life, without the burden of additional costs.

Where should I send my artwork? Will I see a proof before production?

You can send your creations to your designated Account Manager. You’ll receive a complimentary design layout of your promotional item, which will show the branding, the colours of print, and the positioning.

Once you’re satisfied with the design, you can relax… and we can get to work!

What is the screen charge?

When you place your order with us, you might see something called a screen charge. Don’t worry, it’s just the cost of setting up our printing processes! This covers the exposure of the screen/s and getting everything ready for your branding.

Do you print to pantone? What about photographs, can you print these too?

Yes, we do! We print to the Pantone Colour Matching System for most orders. If you don’t have a Pantone colour reference, no problem. We’ll colour match it as closely as possible for you. And if you want photographic printing or tinted gradients, we can make it happen using a heat transfer method. Just tell us what you need, and we’ll make it a reality.

I have a unique idea for a bag but can’t see it on your website, can you help?

We would love to! This is exactly our area of expertise, and we’re passionate about creating the bag of your choice. Our skilled graphics team can combine their hard work with your ideas, and together, we can design a bag that is truly one-of-a-kind. We will even provide a complimentary production sample for you to review before we initiate the process.
