METHODS OF IMPRINTING
See individual catalog pages and website for SET UP CHARGES, RUN CHARGES and MINIMUM IMPRINT QUANTITIES. Imprinted quantities apply per copy/logo/size. Re-Order Set Up Charge $30(g)/color/location as applicable (except sublimation)
DIRECT PRINT: standard screen print/pad print method and is preferred for single-color printing jobs on drinkware and most spot printing jobs on other products. Imprint areas provided are generally references for direct print imprint areas.
DECAL PRINTING: enables us to recreate complex, multi-colored permanent images. Decal printing may also enable a larger imprint area. Most glass and ceramic drinkware jobs that require more than a one color imprint will be produced using the decal method.. PMS matches cannot be guaranteed as resulting imprinted color(s) may change after the “firing” process. Please note: the decal application process is “manual” and variations in placements as well as slight irregularities are deemed acceptable and are not to be considered defective or damaged.
LASER ENGRAVING: permanently engraves or etches artwork into the surface of the item..
SUBLIMATION: allows for the transfer of 4 color process art and is offered on a few selected products as indicated. It is recommended that Sublimated Ceramic Mugs be hand washed only with warm soap and water for best results.
PMS COLOR MATCHING
Exact PMS color matches are not available. We try to match your color selections as closely as possible using PMS numbers as a reference only, an exact match cannot be guaranteed. We offer a wide selection of Standard PMS colors at no charge that can be viewed on our website. PMS Charge for approx. match for other PMS colors: $30(g)/color.
For multi-color imprints produced with our CMYK 4 color decal process, a PMS match cannot be guaranteed as we do not use the Pantone process colors. We will do our best to approximate the PMS color requested but will not be responsible for variations in the PMS color matches for decal printing. PMS Charge for approx. match: $30(g)/color.
