Terms and Conditions

Paying for your order, and our no-returns policy

Prior to producing your order we require both:

  • Payment by bank transfer. Your order confirmation email contains payment instructions.
  • Your approval of design - see below.

Since all of our pens are branded we cannot accept order cancellations or returns.

Approving your design

To ensure you are going to be happy with your order we send you a PDF artwork proof with your branding shown exactly as it will appear on your chosen pen or other promotional product.

Artwork proof

If you wish to see this artwork proof prior to confirming your order please just pay $40 towards your order by following the payment instructions on your quotation. We need your approval confirmation of this artwork proof AND full payment of the quotation prior to producing your order.

Product Colours

The product colours illustrated on our wesbite and promotional material are matched as closely as printing will allow. Actual product colours may vary and they can also vary from shipment to shipment and this is beyond our control.  Always ask to see a sample to verify the product colour is suitable for your requirements as we do not accept returns due to minor colour variations.

Product Suitability

Please ask to see an actual sample of the product you wish to order to ascertain its suitability for your requirements. We do not accept returns of products deemed not to be suitable for the desired purpose for any reason after they are decorated.

PMS Colours

The Pantone Matching System (PMS) was designed for mixing and controlling colours within the offset printing industry and colour fidelity of thus system is achieved using offset printing inks printed on coated and matt white paper stock.

All other printing purposes including digital printing have adopted the PMS system as a colour reference guide for colour matching. It is important to remember that the inks used in such processes cannot be mixed according to the PMS recipes so PMS matches on promotional can vary from almost perfect in some processes to only approximate in others. The colour of the product chosen is also a big factor in our ability to match PMS colours. Please do not hesitate to ask for more information about PMS colours if you have any concern as to whether the printing process can deliver the level of accuracy you require on products you order.

For pad and screen printing, close PMS colours are best achieved on white products. Reasonably close matches can also be achieved on frosted clear and silver surfaces but as the colour of the product gets darker the ability to match PMS colours diminishes.

Full colour digital printing processes can only achieve approximate PMS colour matches at best. It is very important to be aware of this limitation as it is unavoidable and we do not accept returns based on digitally generated colours not matching PMS colours.

Artwork Proof Alterations

If an artwork proof is returned to us with alterations an amended artwork proof file will have to be issued.
A minimum fee of NZ$20+GST  is payable for the additional work.

It is your responsibility to ensure you have approval from the owner of the artwork to use it.
