Postage and Packing

For deliveries within the UK we generally use FEDEX UK for next day delivery. The minimum charge is £8 (up to about 15kg). This charge obviously depends on the size and weight of the order and covers all packing, postal and handling charges. For larger or urgent orders we can ship directly from our suppliers, using DHL. For small stock orders, you can request a Royal Mail First Class delivery. Please note we cannot track this, and hold no responsibility for packages lost by Royal Mail.

What graphics formats do you accept? How accurate is Pantone Matching

We can work with most standard formats- JPG, PDF, EPS, AI, PSD etc. We can sometimes accommodate other formats such as cdr and pcx, check with us. If you have a web page with your logo on it, we can sometimes take the image from that. All quotes are dependent on the provision of graphics in a suitable format. For Pantone matching, we can try and extract the number from your artwork, but for accurate matching, please supply the Pantone number. Please note the industry standard for pantone matching material is +/- 10%, which means we we very occasionally see a slight variation, especially if a small quantity of pantone matched lanyards is required.
