Roundscreenprint: to decorate pens with a bigger logo we can print the pens round in screenprint. For more information, you can ask your contact person.
Screen printed transfer: Screen printed transfer, the logo is printed in screen on a paper so called transfer. The transfer is cut into the size of the logo and then via heat press applied to the article. It is mostly used for textile and umbrellas. Some of our articles that can be screen printed in one colour, have to be printed via transfers when a multi-colour logo is required. It is also used when fine details have to be printed that cannot be printed by regular silkscreen printing.
Digital transfer: Digital transfer, with a plotter the logo is printed digitally on an adhesive plastic which at the same time is cut by digital control. Once the transfer is cut according to the desired shape it is transferred via a heat press. This kind of transfer can suit to most of our textile materials but we do not recommend its use on certain materials as nylons used on umbrellas. Shapes made in different cuts add complexity in the cutting and the peeling processes are on request. Our prices list only includes any king of basic shapes which can be made in a single cut.
Ceramic transfer: Ceramic transfer, a screen printed transfer is first applied to the ceramic material and then is baked in an oven at a temperature higher than 700°C. During the baking process ceramic’s pores open and the ink is mixed with the ceramic itself. Once the ceramic is cold the ink can’t be removed from the ceramic by any of the conventional uses of the ceramic items.
Embroidery: Embroidery is a technique where the logo is sewed on the article. Embroidery is used for caps, bags, textiles etc. The pricing of Embroidery depends on the number of stitches and the size of the logo. The colour will be defined by the colour of the thread. The maximum number of colours of the threads is 15. An Embroidery card needs to be made for reproducing the logo onto the article. Full surface logo’s or logo’s with gold and silver cord, are more expensive to produce.
Laser engraving: Laser engraving is a method in which the design is burned into the material. The laser beam is controlled digitally by a computer. The colour of the engraving is determined by the background material and the layers underneath the surface.
Embossing: Embossing, through a relieved stamp the design is being pressed into the product. As a result of the press the design is passed to the material. Embossing can only be used on most real leather materials. It is possible to stamp on certain items films of gold, silver and other colour with the use of a stamp containing the desired relieve. Our price list does not contain the additional costs of stamping films.
Doming: Doming is a combination of a printout from a logo on a sticker and a 2 component epoxy resin that is applied to the printout, which gives a nice transparent bubble. The resin is not only crystal clear but also protects the image below against scratches and gives an extra dimension to it. The sticker can be multi-coloured. The resin highlights the logo.
Digital printing: Digital printing is an inkjet printing technique, for flat and 3D shaped items, on nearly all materials. Your logo will be digitally printed directly onto the item in an extreme high quality. The artwork will always be printed in full colour and the details can be extremely fine. From simple text to high definition pictures, all is possible. Printing is done with a great accuracy, making it very suitable for multiple colour printing. It is also possible to match Pantone colours. Even printing up to the edges of the printing surface is possible, causing the imprint size to be significantly bigger than in pad print. Depending on the material it can be that a white base needs to be printed first or that the material needs to be pre-treated.
Digital label: With a plotter the logo is printed digitally on sticker material, which at the same time is cut by digital control. Your logo is printed in full colour. The print quality is very high and the details very fine. The prices are only includes any kind of basic shapes which can be made in a single cut. Shapes made in different cuts add complexity in the cutting and the peeling processes are on request.

2. If you have ordered non-printed corporate gifts, then your order will almost always be delivered to you by one of the major carriers (DHL, TNT, UPS, or DPD). Printed corporate gifts are usually delivered by a transport company from your region. For this purpose, we use a logistic network of several Belgian carriers.
3. Your order will be delivered on a weekday between 8 AM and 5:30 PM. Someone should be present at the delivery address, to accept the order. Unfortunately we cannot give an exact time slot for the delivery. If it cannot be delivered, a second attempt will be made on the next working day. If delivery fails again, a message will be left so you can contact the carrier directly.
4. Since orders are usually delivered to business addresses, delivery is usually problem-free. It is also possible to have your order delivered at a private address, but we do not recommend it.

For that reason, we recommend that you always choose for your orders to be delivered to a business address.
