Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my items cost?

  • The price of items depends on a range of variable factors: size, material, number of colours, finishing, fixings, quantity... It is very difficult to estimate a price for any item without first having all of the above information and then putting all the specifications into a Bill of Materials, which in turn generates prices.
  • Let us have your requirements and we will be happy to put together a quotation for you.
  • Not sure what to do about the details? Speak to one of our team and we can guide you through the options available to you.

What size and shape can I have them?

  • We can produce items of any shape or size that you desire. The essential constraint is the size our materials are available in.
  • Our most popular materials; 1.5mm and 3mm ABS plastic and 1mm Polycarbonate come in sheets sized 1220x2440mm (8'x4').
  • Vinyl comes in sheets or rolls, up to 1220mm wide by 250m long.
  • The maximum size we can screen print is 1170x2320mm.
  • Our CAD/CAM Zund cutting machine allows computerised kiss- and die-cutting to any shape imaginable, and its size is limited to 2.2m wide by 3.6m long, although it can cut vinyl on the roll up to 250 metres in length.

What will the minimum order quantity be?

  • We don't have minimum order quantities very often, occasionally on a few aerospace parts, but we do have a minimum order value of £50.

Will having more colours increase the cost of my items?

  • Yes, but the more you order of any one item, the less difference an extra colour makes to the price per item. This is because the 'set-up' of the colour, which is where the cost comes in, is spread across the total number of items ordered.

Will it cost more to have more text?

  • No not for printing. If all your text is the same colour, then regardless of the amount of text, it will still only be one layer of print, so text/design makes no difference to cost.
  • Yes for engraving, as more letters take a longer time to cut.
  • Yes for pre-spaced lettering as this would use up more vinyl, take longer to cut and take longer to de-weed the waste.

How long will my order take to complete?

  • We aim to have orders completed within 15 working days of the receipt of an order, however, if for example there are any special materials involved, or if new artwork needs approving, this can increase the time it takes to complete an order.
  • If you require an order sooner than 15 days, we will of course try to accommodate you.

TOP


How long will the items last?

  • The longevity of our products depends on the materials and inks used, and of course the item's function and location of use.
  • Obviously certain usage factors such as exposure to extreme heat, or cold, can have an effect, and prolonged direct sunlight will eventually cause some fading to colours, but the use of UV inks minimises these effects.

How will the items stand up to vandalism?

  • We choose our materials carefully with all aspects of performance considered. Vandalism is always difficult to avoid but if you discuss your requirements with us we will recommend the best option to suit your purpose.
  • e.g. Makrolon Polycarbonate is what Police Forces use to make their riot shields, or we have anti-vandal vinyl sign faces available to protect sign fronts.

Will my items be recyclable and/or recycled?

  • Our standard range of materials is recyclable.
  • We understand that there is a growing need for recycled products, but many of the recycled materials available to us are new and not tested "in the field." We have also experienced difficulty in printing on recycled materials because of the silicone used in the manufacturing process.
  • However, it is something we are strongly pursuing and when we are confident that we can offer a durable, high quality product, we will.

TOP


What is the cost of delivery?

  • Our standard delivery cost is £8.00 per box, which is a next day courier service using DHL.
  • If you have a large or oversized order that requires a pallet, we price for this on application, as it depends on the weight, size and delivery address.
  • For those last minute situations, we also offer a next day, pre-10am service, which again, is priced on application.
