Printing your own Designs

We have many years of experience in helping our customers transform their designs into beautiful decals for ceramic and glass ware.
There are two main ways to print decals from you own artwork – Digital print and Silkscreen. The main reason to choose either one is quantity.

Digital

Digital print is great for small runs and is very economical because there is little or no setup cost. The minimum order is one A3 sheet.
Your artwork should be a minimum 300 dpi, it should be clean and of the best possible quality to ensure the best end result.
The easiest files for you and us are Jpeg or Photoshop PSD, we can also work from Adobe PDF files.
Ideally, we will need the digital A3 sheet already laid out with all the items you need, please leave a 1cm border on all four sheet edges. If you cannot send the completed layout then we can do this for you at a small additional cost.
Digital decals are great for images like photographs, commemorative, celebrations etc.

Silkscreen Printing

Silkscreen printing is a little more complex and requires colour separation, filmwork and screen making but is very economical for larger quantities, 100+ sheets.
Your artwork should be a minimum 300 dpi, it should be clean and of the best possible quality to ensure the best end result.
The easiest files for you and us are Jpeg or Photoshop PSD, we can also work from Adobe PDF files.
Because there as so many possibilities with silkscreen print we would always need to see your artwork first, then we can advise you of the best way forward.
We regularly run single colour sheets in black, red and blue so if you have a small requirement for a short run of one colour decals then we can add this onto our sheet. This means you only need a small part of the sheet and therefore only a small portion of the cost.
