Screen printing involves stencil branding information onto the product.
Pad printing is a print process that transfers an image from an etched plate via a silicone pad onto the material. A wide range of surfaces can be printed i.e. flat, cylindrical, spherical, concave and convex.
Digital printing is achieved by using either a colour copier or inkjet printer. Both processes are
capable of full colour printing
Offset printing is the method used for accurate reproduction, not suitable for short runs.
Letterpress is the transfer of ink onto substrate via a photographically prepared block with impression. Extra fine detail (tones/vignettes) can be difficult to reproduce.
Embroidery designs are stitched onto the products with an automated embroidery machine.
These designs are digitised with embroidery software.
Foil printing is achieved by stamping foil to the product. Foil printing best suits simple text, line
art and basic logos.
Heat transfer digital
Heat transfer printing is an indirect printing method where rather than printing directly onto a
product, the inks are printed onto a release paper then transferred with a heat press to the product.
Laser engraving gives a permanent finish and is only suitable for some products. The cost of laser engraving is affected by the size of the area to be engraved.
This is a permanent resin coated logo attached to the product which can be in full colour.
Products branded with this process are marked in the catalogue but it is possible to use it for most items that have a flat or
slightly curved printing surface. (See labels & stickers)
This is produced by pressing a hot engraved metal plate into the surface of a product with a lot of pressure. This produces a permanent image below the products surface.
This symbol means the product can have a QR code included in the ad copy
Vector art required
Products that require vector art can be printed in 1- 4 pms ink colours only. This requires artwork in an .eps format. CMYK images are not acceptable. Make sure all fonts are outlined before supplying.
Raster art Required
.jpg files (Raster Art) Hi Resolution (300dpi) to print size. These items have a full colour print and
therefore all artwork should be CMYK and have bleed where appropriate. Most full colour products are guillotined so artwork
should be kept as far away from the edge of the print area as possible to avoid appearing off centre or being trimmed off
