IN-HOUSE PRINTING AND THE PROCESS
We are proud to offer in-house hot foil printing, which enables you to customise most of our current packaging collections with your corporate brand or slogan. We use traditional
John T Marshall foiling machines, which are small and controlled by hand, makes short runs, quick production and a variety of packaging styles customisable.
PROVIDING A LOGO FILE
To make this possible we require a 2D black and white vector-based graphic, supplied as a PDF or Adobe Illustrator file. We can help you to create a logo file or convert your existing file to a suitable format and scale for an additional fee.
MAKING A PRINTING BLOCK
Printing blocks are manufactured from a UK company and the blocks can usually be supplied to us within 2-3 days. The blocks are etched out of magnesium, to offer a strong printing block that can last for a number of years based on usage. We then use your printing block, with your selected coloured foil to create an impression on your chosen packaging.
AVAILABLE PRINTING COLOURS
As standard we offer one colour print, most commonly gold, rose gold, silver and black. We are able to order coloured foils based on the Pantone of your brand for an additional fee.
LOGO SIZE AND LOCATION
The range of printing widths offered in-house is 10cm for bags and 2.3 cm for ring boxes, which usually covers the spectrum of our collections.
We look forward to hearing about your printing style, let us know how you would like your printing. Great guideline descriptions involve the words maximal, minimal and proportional, which we can adopt for the varying sizes and shapes of packaging across the collections.
In terms of location, most commonly hinged packaging can be printed on the inner lid and cardboard packaging on top of the box. Wooden and Premium packaging styles can be printed on the inner lid, and we can also print on top of the outer card box for an additional fee. Bags and pouches are printed as close to the centre as possible within our machines. For examples or more details please speak to our sales representatives.

A set of printing blocks cost £40 for a 5-day turnaround and £50 for an express service and can be purchased by contacting us by email, or on the phone.
