What are Imprint Options?

Imprint options are the various ways a product can be branded with your logo. Below are a few of the most popular...

Screen-printing involves pressing ink through a fine mesh screen and onto the surface of a product.

Also referred to as blind deboss, this classic method leaves an impression - or rather, a depression - of the logo onto a material's surface.

Embossing is a technique which creates a pattern on the material that is raised or in relief.

An Epoxy Dome is made of a clear soft flexible see-through material which is "domed" over the top of pressure sensitive decal material.

Stitching a design into fabric through the use of high-speed computer-controlled sewing machines.

Foil Stamping
Foil stamping uses controlled heat, pressure, and precision timing to apply colored or metallic foil resins to decorate surfaces of varied shapes and materials.

Laser Engraving
This technique uses lasers to engrave or mark an object. It can be technical and complex, and often a computer system is used to drive the movements of the laser head.

Heat Transfer
Heat transfers are applied by heat transfer printing. This dry decorating method uses controlled heat, dwell, and pressure to thermally bond the graphic onto the surface, achieving high quality and durability.

Pad Print
Pad printing utilizes a flexible silicone rubber transfer pad that picks up a film of ink from a photo-etched printing plate and transfers it to a three-dimensional part surface.

Color Stamp
Simple one-color designs are enhanced when a die is used to apply colored foil to a material's surface.

Color Fill
Color fill combines color stamping and debossing. A die is created to first color stamp the logo onto the surface, and then that same die is used to deboss the logo into the material.

Before a logo can be embroidered, it must first be digitized. It is a technical term used to describe the process involved in programming the embroidery machine to stitch the logo accurately.

4 Color Process
A process where 4 different color values (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) (CMYK) come together to create a color image. These 4 colors can be combined to create thousands of colors.

What are Set-up Charges?

Custom imprinting your logo on an item requires printing plates, film, and setting up the engraving laser or embroidery tape charges (just to name a few). These costs are independent of the actual costs of imprinting. Although these are one-time costs, for certain items there are re-set charges which will also be noted separately.

Will it look just like the proof?

All product photos and images on the web site are optimized for the best screen and printer color accuracy at their factory default settings for most brand name monitors and color printers. However, colors do sometimes vary slightly depending on the quality and/or age of your monitor or printer. This should not affect your ability to understand how your artwork will appear on the final product but should be taken into careful consideration when color is of the utmost importance. If you use a specific PMS color to represent your logo, be sure that we are aware of that prior to approving your proof.

What happens after I place my order?
