We always aim to achieve the very best print quality, and to deliver as quickly as possible.
To help expedite print jobs we'd kindly ask that the following guidelines are used for supplying artwork.

PROVIDE ARTWORK IN A VECTOR-BASED FORMAT
CONVERT ALL TYPE TO OUTLINES
Before we begin printing stress balls we need to be supplied with the artwork to be printed. Our preferred file type would be vector based artwork, saved as an EPS, AI, PDF or SVG file with any fonts converted to outlines. If artwork cannot be supplied in these formats we can convert artwork files to vector files using a supplied high-quality file such as a jpg or png - however, this may add a delay to delivery whilst the artwork is converted.
If only text is to be printed for example, a web address or a message the default font we use is Calibri - if a specific type-face is required, we would require the font file to be supplied to us.
IF YOU NEED US TO ADD TYPE WE WILL USE CALIBRI
SPECIFY COLOURS USING THE
PANTONE® COLOUR SYSTEM
To ensure print colours match brand guielines and are to customers satisfaction we use the proprietary and industry known Pantone Colour System. It is helpful to receive pantone references for print colours to make certain colours match - these should be available in your brand guidelines document, from your marketing department (or agency). There is also a helpful tool on the official Pantone website where it's possible to convert RGB, CMYK and HEX colour codes to coated pantone references. Our team are always at hand to help you find a similar match and to provide suggestions.
THE PRINT AREA IS DEPENDENT ON THE SHAPE YOU CHOOSE
DETAILS ARE ON EACH PRODUCT PAGE
All stress balls have different sized print positions and printable areas which can be found on each product page, under the product specification section. Some stress balls can be printed on just one side, others two sides or on a shape like the cube stress ball it's possible to print on all six sides!
Please note the print sizes shown are for a pad print, if a different print method is required the print area may be smaller.
WE PROVIDE A DIGITAL VISUAL
SHOWING YOUR LOGO IN POSITION
Within a few days of the order being confirmed a digital visual of the stress shape showing the size, layout and colour of the print is supplied your approval. We will always use the maximum printable area available for that shape and print position, unless advised to do otherwise.
We also provide a pre-order digital visuals for customers who would like to see the size and layout of print before placing the order. To request a pre-order digital visual simply use 'the get in touch' enquiry form provided below and advise the stress ball shape, colour and also upload the artwork file. We are unable to provide pre-order visuals of bespoke shapes, please see our bespoke pages for more information about custom made stress ball shapes or our manufacturing page to see how stress balls are manufactured.
