Generally less than 4 weeks for completely new orders (from order date), or about 2-3 weeks for a repeat order. But please let us know if you have a shorter deadline we will do our best to help you.

Q: Do I have to pay a deposit?
All new customers will need to pay 50%, or the full amount pro-forma. However, once a relationship is established we try to develop a mutually beneficial account arrangement.

Q: Will I have to pay a set-up charge?
Yes, although it is dependent on the product type ordered. Please contact us with your requirements and we can tell you how much the set-up charge would be.

The carriage charge is £10.00 plus VAT for weights up to 20Kg (to cover postage and packing). We can quote prices for orders that are over this weight.

We can deliver anywhere in the UK, and almost anywhere in the World.

Q: How many colours can be embroidered?
Up to 9 different colours can be embroidered in a single design.

Q: What artwork do I need to send?
The best print results always start from the best artwork. Please send artwork in a digital format whenever possible. We accept artwork in the following formats (please send it to us by e-mail,

floppy disc or CD-Rom):

Colour separated files in EPS format

JPG’s format files in high resolution may be suitable for single colour print
Fonts - Please send all the font files used in your artwork to us, or save the fonts as curves. If you plan to send the artwork by e-mail, you may wish to reduce the files size. If so, please use one of the following programmes to compress your file:

Apple Mac: StuffIt, DropStuff
PC (IBM): Zip, WinZip

Please also remember to give your file an obvious name!

If you are unable to send a file through, then we can on occasions also accept a hardcopy. It is recommended that you send good, clean, crisp black laser quality prints. We provide a professional service, so please ensure you have the most professional solution by avoiding photocopies at all costs!

All artwork (whether digital or hardcopy) should have clear and specific colour indications in Pantone/PMS references. We recommend that you provide this information on a separate document (MS Word, text or printed) to ensure that the colours you get are as you expected.

Terms of Business

Prices
Whilst we will make every effort to hold to our published prices, circumstances beyond our control (e.g. foreign exchange rates and inflation) make it necessary for us to accept orders on the understanding that we will invoice goods at the prices current at the date of despatch.

Orders
Orders are accepted subject to goods being available, and any date given for delivery is intended as an estimate only. We shall not be liable in any way for late delivery or if we are unable to supply all or any of the goods.

Origination
All printing plates, blocking dies, screens and embroidery discs are chargeable.
Embroidery Designs

It is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that artwork provided is correct and of satisfactory quality, and that the correct colour information and garment type for the design is given before the embroidery disc is ordered. We will not be responsible for costs in errors or changes in artwork after the disc has been produced. We will give as much professional help in advising the Customer as to the suitability of the artwork but we accept no responsibility whatsoever in the appearance of the design if this advice has not been taken. Once approval of a sample has been given on similar fabric to the job, we cannot accept responsibility for any complaints on embroidery if the job is of the same standard as the sample.

VAT
All prices are subject to VAT unless otherwise stated.

Orders are undertaken on the understanding that a variation of up to 5% will be acceptable, although we will endeavour to supply the correct quantity.
