If you're wondering what company gifts are (alias promotional products or branded merchandise), keep reading! Corporate gifting is the practice of building a bridge between a firm and its employees, clients and other prospects, with either physical merch (such as notebooks, calendars or hampers) or non-physical (such as experiences or e-cards). It's a way of showing appreciation, a sign that you value their work and input and wish to continue the collaboration on a good note.

The Printing Process
How can I send my artwork to you?
You can easily upload your logo/artwork through our online shop - either at the checkout or on the product page, by simply uploading it from your computer. Alternatively, you can also email us your artwork or upload it in your customer account. For the best results possible, make sure it's in a vector format (e.g.: .eps; .pdf; .ai, .svg).
How do I create my artwork?
Creating your artwork or print file is much easier than it seems. Here are all the artwork guidelines you need for putting together your own file. Alternatively, if you can't do that or don't have the time, we can do it for you for just £25.

What is a print preview and how can I get one?
A print preview is a virtual representation of the branded products you want to order. You can benefit from our free print previews when available. Make sure you opt for this option on the product page, upload your logo and within 2 to 4 hours you will get this via email. After you have approved the print preview, we start production.

In case you still have open questions, do not hesitate to contact us. Our competent allbranded team will gladly help you find the perfect method for you.
Can I have samples printed?
Test print samples are generally possible, but relatively expensive, as the customised sample needs to be included into a complex production process. In this case, there are set up costs that we need to charge you. In case you want a sample with your logo and subsequently place an order, we will of course deduct these costs from your order.
