Drawing & Film Making – In order to produce the artwork we make use of a wide range of standard typefaces, and also do freehand work whenever it is required. Once the artwork has been drawn up we will send over a proof to you, and we will not start manufacturing until you are completely happy with the design. If you are providing your own artwork, our team is always happy to assist and help improve the delivery – we are always on hand to offer guidance and advice.

Processing – We can manufacture to one of many standard finishes such as: screen print, anodise and print, etch and print, hot foil print and machine engrave. Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t have any tooling charges for standard shapes.

Extras – Any additional specifications may be added such as;

  • Serial numbering
  • Self-adhesive backing
  • Labels in roll form
  • Individual marking
  • Removable plastic film to protect the surface of the plate
