We are also the number one independent manufacturer of bespoke font and front-of-bar branding for the brewery industry where we combine our expertise in vacuum forming and printing for exceptional results.
If you have a project in mind, please get in touch with a member of our team today.
We require all artwork to be sent in an editable Adobe Illustrator format (Ai, EPS, PDF etc.) although our artwork department will look at any files you wish to submit. All fonts need to be converted to outlines and any images included as part of the artwork need to be embedded within the artwork and saved to the highest resolution possible.
Some CAD platforms unfortunately do not export editable artwork to PDF. Created graphics can become a myriad of unconnected paths (rather than a font for instance) which need to be joined to enable the graphic to be used. Additional costs may be incurred if such files are supplied.
Our sales team will be happy to advise if you have any queries.
If colour matching is required a sample of the colour to match to will be needed otherwise the job colours will be determined by the artwork you send us.
Please note that colours take on a very different hue upon different substrates or when back illuminated upon a lens for instance. Where we are producing lenses on transparent material, in clear acrylic, we will colour match to the illuminated version. In this case, if you wish us to match for a non illuminated version then please bring this to our attention.
All photo files are required to be a minimum ¼ size at 300 dpi to enable the best possible print quality. We will refer back to you if we think the quality of the image will compromise the job.
Embossing and Debossing
For embossed/debossed jobs the artwork should include a separate layer so that it is clear from the artwork which areas are to be embossed/debossed. Embossing/debossing requires hard tooling to be manufactured so clarity here is important to allow the manufacturing process to run smoothly.
We will always send PDF proofs via email prior to commencement of the job. Please allow time within your schedule for the proofing process.
