When requesting a quote for decals or placing an order, please include all of the following:
Company Name, Phone #, Fax #, and contact person's name.
Quantity - How many individual decals will you need?
Substrate - Will the decals be applied to ceramics or glassware.
Firing Temperature - What firing temperature range should the decals be made for?
Size - What are the dimensions and shape of the decal?
Colors - How many colors?
Gold and Silver - Is there to be any metallic Gold or Silver in the design? If so, please let us know the approximate size of that portion of the artwork that is Gold or Silver.
Proofs - Do you need a sample of the finished decal for approval prior to our producing the entire job?
Lead Time - When do you need the proof? When do you need the entire production run of decals in your hands?
When ordering decals, please be aware that the more information you can give us, the quicker we can supply you with the finished product.
Quantity - Include total number of decals needed. If you are applying the same decal to both the front and back of an item, don't forget to order enough! Due to the production process, we cannot guarantee exact quantities, and may ship an overrun or underrun of up to 10%.
Firing Temperature - Glass firing (typically 1040-1080 degrees F.) or Ceramic firing (1400-1500 degrees F.) Quantity - Include total number of decals needed. If you are applying the same decal to both the front and back of an item, don't forget to order enough! Due to the production process, we cannot guarantee exact quantities, and may ship an overrun or underrun of up to 10%.
Size - Please indicate the maximum height and width of the decal. When figuring the dimensions for your decal, remember to leave about 1/4 inch minimum between where the edge of the decal ends and the handle (on mugs) begins.
Colors - When specifying colors to be used for a decal, please keep in mind that due to the nature of the inorganic pigments used for glass and ceramic decorating enamels, exact color matches are not always possible. We will try to come as close as possible to matching your requested colors, but if no close match can be made, we suggest that a sample proof with our best substitute color be produced for your approval. Sample charges may apply. You may reference PMS numbers, send us a sample item with the correct colors (best method), or provide artwork on disk or via e-mail.
Gold & Silver (Platinum) - These colors are also available, but are more expensive than our normal non-metallic colors. Charges will vary depending upon the size of the gold or silver operation. NOTE: These precious metallic colors are subject to abrasion and wear over time, and are not considered dishwasher safe. Gentle washing by hand is recommended for best results. Gold or Silver decorations should not be used in microwave ovens.
Pre-Production Proofs - If you need a pre-production sample of the finished decal to verify size, colors, etc., please specify this when placing your order. For typical orders, it generally will take 7-10 working days to make and ship the proofs. Please add several more days for transit time. If the artwork supplied must be modified before it can be used, we will advise you as to lead times and any possible art charges that may apply.
Lead Times - Lead times will be quoted on a case by case basis. At the time of your initial contact with us, please try to specify a realistic date for when you need the decals in your hands. This will help us with our scheduling. Any Questions? You may contact us via telephone, fax, or email.
