Getting your design right first time is key to ensuring the finished promotional lanyards you expect – and the quality you demand.
Regardless of your needs – even if you’re really not sure what you need – our customer service team will be pleased to help on 0203 195 8031.
Meantime, the following guide provides a useful starting point, helping you to select the style of lanyard that’s most suitable for you.
NEED FULL COLOUR PRINTING?
Digital/CMYK (4 colour process) printing allows for non-vector graphics (photographs such as .jpegs, .png, .tiff filetypes) to be printed in the quality they are supplied.
It’s also a great way to print vector logos, where gradients, tints and a range of colours are required.
[Note: Non-vector graphics which are to be digitally/full colour printed must be supplied at a minimum 300dpi quality.]
SPOT COLOUR PRINTING?
When single, two or three colours are to be used, the desired Pantone colours must be specified to ensure the colours you expect are the colours you achieve.
This is particularly important in cases where strict adherence to your brand colours is imperative.
[Please note: where spot colours are concerned, we can only print solid colours; gradients (shading) or tints in a logo will be converted to solid block colours.]
Please note that the online guide is only approximate as the viewing of colours will vary depending on your computer screen colour set up.
Every colour has a Pantone Matching System (PMS) reference number. This is a system used throughout the industry to ensure any printer can match colours specified by any designer.
We use the PMS colour chart with all promotional merchandise, however, we are unable to guarantee a 100% pantone match, as there is such a wide range of materials that are manufactured in metal, plastic, fabric, pvc, etc. We will make every effort to get as close as possible. If you are unsure of the colour(s) your branding needs to be printed in, please use the chart below. Then email your account manager with your selected pantone number(s).
Please remember Pantone colours on computer screens may vary based on the graphics card and monitor used in your system.
