Frequently Asked Questions
The branding process takes about 5-7 Working Days. The countdown starts from the day we receive your initial payment and approval of required Artwork. The delivery date will be approximately 3 extra working days after branding is completed.
It depends on the number of logos to be printed, size of logo, number of print positions and number of colours to be printed. All branding costs will vary per product and branding method. So it all just depends.
There is no minimum order quantity but setup charges associated with each branding process still apply. When the setup charge is amortised over smaller quantities, the cost per unit is higher ie. branding 50 units versus 10 units always works out cheaper per unit. On the good side, we do not charge setup fees for all Vinyl Heat Press branding and Sublimation branding on Mugs and garments.
Should you need a pre-production sample, we offer sample branding at reduced rates.
Yes. We genuinely accept third party branding orders for Heat Press and Sublimation at no minimum order quantity requirements. Minimum quantities apply in some specialised branding methods such as Screen printing, Embroidery, Vinyl stickers and Digital Transfer Branding. Other methods of branding are highly specialised and do not qualify for third party branding since our machines are crafted to only work with what we supply. However, feel free to contact us if you have less items and we can see if we have capacity to assist.
These are basically numerical codes used to describe different colours distinctively. In reality, there are many different shades of a different colour and we use Pantone Colour codes to be able to know the exact colour we should use for branding a specific logo.

A branding setup fee is basically a fee paid into setting up templates for branding machine, logo adjustments work by our graphics designers, gathering all the required material for branding as well as paying for all the manual labour involved. Branding is a very automated job, hence we have to go through a setup process and let the machines do the rest with very less manual labour involved. This way we can produce high quantities of branded products efficiently and meet all deadlines..
Even though we may have the artwork on file, all of our machines need to be setup for individual orders.
The machine settings are different for each item and must be adjusted with each order. The greater part of the setup fee is charged for the amount of time and the labour involved in setting up a machine. A setup takes approximately 45-60 minutes in all branding departments, except for screen and pad printing where it can take 45-60 minutes for each colour being branded. In embroidery, because the artwork has already been digitised from the first order, we do not charge a full set up fee. We only charge for the labour involved in setting up the machine.
We offer personalisation in:
- Laser Engraving
- Digital processes (sublimation, heat press, domed and vinyl stickers, digital transfer)
The reason for this is every other department needs a screen, plate or die to be made. This means that we will have to setup for each individual personalisation, which is not cost effective and very labour intensive.
If a logo is the same colour but going on different colour items, then only one setup is charged.
When we change print colour we have to set up the machine again. For instance, when screen printing, once we print the logo in the first colour, we have to take the screen off the machine, clean off all the ink and then set the machine up again before we print the logo in another colour.
There are a couple reasons for this. Each item has its own jig: a place holder for the item that is mounted onto the machine. Every time we change the item, we have to change the jig and reset the machine so that the logo is printed in the correct position.
Another reason is that not all the items have the same branding space so on some items we can brand a larger logo than on others which means that the artwork will be different. For instance, if we are screen printing two items with the same logo but the logo is a different size on each item, we need two different screens.
