Samples & Artwork Policy
Product samples are provided for your appraisal of the physical product, they are supplied plain/unbranded or branded with previous job artwork or generic artwork. We will always endeavour to provide your product samples in your chosen colours. For most confirmed orders our product samples are provided free of charge, however some of the more expensive products may incur a small product and delivery charge.
UNIVERSAL, AMERICANO and WATER/SPORTS BOTTLES
We do not charge in advance for these samples and they are completely free for all enquiries that progress through to an order. Samples requested that do not progress to an order within 14 days of despatch are charged at £4 each plus £7 delivery and vat. All samples are no-returnable due to the nature of the product being drinkware.
We would always suggest to request a quote and provide us your artwork for checking prior to samples being sent – so that you can be happy in principal an order can be placed.
PRE PRODUCTION SAMPLES
Pre production samples are where we design, artwork proof for your approval, machine/screen setup and print a copy of the actual final version of your artwork on the product so you can confirm and approve your logo, graphics and artwork prior to a full run. These are useful on large print runs and also on colour critical projects. These samples will have costs incurred including the artwork and setup costs, the product and print run cost for the sample(s), plus delivery and vat. The cost of these usually makes it prohibitive for small runs under 500, and where onscreen proofs and blank product samples will suffice.
Our busy artwork department is run by highly skilled and professional designers and attention to your requirements is one of our key services. This service ensures your final product is not just good but great. Artwork visuals and proofs from your supplied print ready files are provided free of charge for all enquiries that progress to a confirmed order.

Vector based logos and files always provide the best reproduction, if you don’t have these we can create them if required. If you are supplying artwork, please ask for a template for your chosen product we will provide everything you need for your artwork department to design to specification.
