The pouch cannot be printed full bleed.
Please note: All full colour jobs are run at our printer’s discretion, within the limitations of the printing process / materials, to achieve the best possible overall effect. Due to the nature of the process, some slight colour variation is sometimes unavoidable. Where tones are highly important, please supply a paper proof to assist colour matching and allow seven days extra lead-time.
Artwork less than 4Mb may be submitted by email.
Section 2: Choosing Material Colours.
The PMS references shown are the closest possible & intended as a guide only. They are not an exact PMS matches.
Please remember that on screen representations may vary slightly from the actual fabric colours due to monitor calibration & other factors.
Please enter your fabric choice onto the Order Form.
SECTION 3: Specifying Print Colours.
You may be familiar with Pantone references, also called PMS references, (Pantone Measuring System), for quoting colours. If you know the PMS references that you would like printed, then please indicate them on the Order Form.
Alternatively, you can stipulate print colours from our ‘Vape Fans Colour Chart’ shown above.
If your print design is a full colour, (a photographic type image), then it is not necessary to state Pantone references. On the Order Form, please enter ‘Full Colour’ instead of a Pantone reference.
SECTION 4: Delivery Times.
Delivery times are typically within 3 to 4 weeks of receiving your artwork, approval & payment. Delivery dates are not guaranteed however as a part of the process, (the shipping & customs for example), is beyond our control.
If you are ordering for a forthcoming event, please do let us know the date and we will endeavour to meet your target where possible.

Below 50,000 units. 3 - 4 weeks approx
Above 50,000 units. 4 - 6 weeks
Above 100,000 units. On request
Please note that the above times are a guide and may vary due to production levels, seasonal demand etc.
The cost of delivery is included within your quotation.
SECTION 5: The Approval Process.
Our approval procedure works as follows:
Make your choice of fabric colours - as covered in Section 2.
State PMS references for the printing - as covered in Section 3.
A generic sample can be provided on request, to demonstrate the standard of quality to expect.
Check & approve the virtual visual provided, to ensure that the layout and content is correct.
Please double check the Order Form, as the factory works from this instruction to produce your order.
Combining these steps covers all aspects of the approval process & avoids the necessity of providing pre-production samples, therefore substantially reducing your delivery time.
Important: Goods will be made in accordance with the Order Form & visual that you approve. It is therefore vital that all aspects are carefully checked as once approved, as full responsibility passes to the customer thereafter.
Actual pre-production samples are available if required. However this process adds around two weeks to the delivery time and costs £150 / $250 / € 200 per design, for three samples. Therefore, approval via the virtual proof method explained is normally preferred for being beneficial to delivery times & budgets.
