AQUA MARK (AQ) - Spot Colour printing for Drinkware
- Minimum two colour imprint
If you require an Aqua Mark in a 2nd location, an additional location running charge (based on quantity-see product page and click on 'view decorating information') AND applicable Aqua Mark running charges will apply.
Similar to traditional transfer printing, Aqua Mark has been developed exclusively for use on drinkware. Ink is applied to a sheet of transfer paper instead of directly onto the material. The transfer is then applied directly onto the product. This method allows for spot colour separations (PMS colour match). A clear overlay is always required. A white underlay may be required on dark product colours or glass.
Production time for full order is 15-18 business days. A preproduction sample may be required for approval prior to full production. Longer lead times required for larger quantities.

The process of debossing is offered on most of our leather, koskin, textura, EVA, and simulated leather lines only. A die is created of your logo and then pressed into the material creating an ‘impression’ of the logo. Debossing provides a subtle, yet higher perceived value on many products. Set up charge is included. Die charge is extra. Set up is also no charge on exact repeat orders assuming previous purchase order or invoice number is provided. Note: Dies are stored in-house for a period of two years. After two years a new die must be made and a new die charge will apply.
To add value to some selected upper end products, a logo is transferred from a sophisticated computer generated program onto a durable adhesive backed vinyl substrate. Four colour process decals look stunning and are a great alternate decorating option. PMS colour match not available.
The logo is stitched onto the material using threads in designated embroidery friendly areas creating your design. Embroidery is an elegant and stylish way to portray a wide range of logo types. Embroidery is the perfect decorating method to add value to your purchase.
Etch Engraving (ETCH)
This ‘cutting edge’ technology is very similar to laser engraving, but instead of a laser aimed at the product, the actual item is etched with a diamond tip. This creates an extremely crisp finish. Computerized engraving is used on our pens, aluminum, wine opener levers, and plates.

Laser Engraving (LAS)

With our Laser-Like decorating option you get the look of engraving for the price of screen printing. Using a frosted colour effect, matte ink is screen printed directly onto the product. The result is an elegant impression that resembles the subtle look of engraving.

NATURAL COTTON HEAT TRANSFERS
Similar to Perfect Print, a heat transfer allows a full four colour process computer generated logo to be printed onto clear heat transfer material and pressed onto natural coloured cotton. This process allows for a beautiful, detailed logo and is perfect for halftones and gradients. The fabric must always be light coloured to allow for the logo to be seen on the product.

Pad Printing (PAD)
Pad Printing is extremely effective on rounded, uneven, or slanted product shapes. It is also perfect for small and intricate logos. A silicone pad is used to transfer the ink onto the product. The pad can hit various levels on a product at one time. Ink colour availability is restricted due to the limited ability to mix inks utilized in this process. Pad printing is utilized on products such as: plastics, pens, aluminum, tins, rubber, cardboard gift boxes, metal, vinyl, leather and paper pad banners.
A four colour process paper banner on a white background is inserted between the double walls of the tumbler.
We highly recommend this template be used when setting up your artwork for the paper banner insert. Because the shape of the imprint area is oblong, any artwork submitted as a square will be forced to arch in order for the imprint to fit in the template. This may cause warping. If you submit your artwork without using this template, please carefully review your paper proof to ensure the artwork is correct.
PERFECT PRINT (PP)
Perfect Print allows a full colour computer generated logo to be printed onto heat transfer material and pressed onto a variety of fabrics. This process is produced at a lower cost than multi colour screen prints and is perfect for halftones and gradients.

Screen Print (SP)
The direct screen printing process involves placing the material under a mesh screen. By applying even pressure with a squeegee on the screen, your logo is imprinted onto the material surface. The screen printing process ensures your imprint looks its best on a wide variety of fabrics. This is the most common method of decoration.
Transfer Print (TR)
A transfer is created in a very similar method to screen printing, however, the ink is applied to a sheet of transfer paper instead of directly onto the material. The transfer is then pressed onto the product using a combination of heat and pressure. This method allows for unlimited colour separations that always require an underlay. Many products utilize this process as it assists in decorating products with foam insulation or hard to screen print locations.
Wrap-Around Screen Print
Using the same concept as our screen printing method, a logo is evenly applied to a smooth, cylindrical surface using finer inks. The result is a 3/4 wrap-around imprint that is both crisp and clean.
