Decorating and Imprint Details

Multi-Color Imprints: In order to achieve registration, many startup pieces are required which cannot be shipped. The additional time and materials required to achieve a multi-color registration cannot be absorbed on small quantity orders. The quantities required for multi-color printing are:

  • Two color imprints are available at catalog minimum on most items.
  • Three or more imprint colors require a minimum of 500 pieces on most items.
  • Less than established minimum quantities are not available for multi-color imprints.

Multi-Color Registration Requirements: 1/16" is factory standard and must be deemed acceptable. For tight registration, please consult factory for pre-approval of artwork. Artwork of 3 colors or more should be submitted in advance for review.

Ink Color Charge: $25.00 (g) per change; ink changes are subject to absolute minimum quantities.

Copy Change: New set up charges apply. Absolute minimum quantity is required per copy change.

Imprinting Pricing & Second Side Imprints: Most prices include a one color/one sided imprint; please see individual product pages for specifications and second side imprinting charges. Drinkware is automatically imprinted with the same artwork on both sides, unless otherwise specified or if the artwork lends itself to a wrap imprint. A wrap imprint does not print the full circumference of the product.

Standard Imprint Colors: PMS Red 193 matches red lids, PMS Blue 2728 matches blue lids, PMS Blue 295 matches pearl blue lids, PMS Aqua 3125 matches aqua lids, PMS Purple 267 matches purple lids. Below are our standard imprint colors:

*Note: Indicated PMS colors will go off the number, not the reproduced swatch due to inconsistencies in catalog print color reproduction. Please reference your PMS guide for most accurate color representation.

Translucent & Dark Colored Products: White, Metallic Silver PMS 877 and Metallic Gold PMS 871 are recommended imprint colors on translucent and dark colored items. Second side and black imprints are not recommended on translucent colored items. Metallic inks may require additional charges. Metallic ink is not available on four color process items.

PMS Colors & Dark Colored Products: PMS matches are available at $40.00 (g) per color, per order on most products. If specific color match charge and instructions are not clearly indicated, the factory will match indicated PMS color as close as possible without a charge (color will be within two shades of specified color and cannot be duplicated on reorders). Dark colored products will alter the appearance of most imprint colors; PMS matches cannot be achieved on dark colored products without a white underlay, which will incur additional costs. For PMS matching on four color process items, please see "Four Color Process Artwork and Imprinting."

QR Codes: While we test QR Codes via several different programs prior to producing an order, we cannot guarantee the codes will work on all QR Code apps.
