Product Printing and Decoration Guide
With AGIFT you have the opportunity to customise products to integrate with your organisation's corporate brand strategy and visual presentation. We provide you with a completely flexible design service, from concept to completion.

Promotional products can be branded or decorated in a variety of ways using different methods.

Debossing is the process of creating a depressed imprint using a die pressed into the surface of the material.
Debossing looks great on:
- Vinyl, leather and faux leather products such as compendiums

Embroidery is a process where automated industrial embroidery machines stitch coloured threads on to different textile and apparel products using a digitised logo.
Embroidery is great for:
- Creating a 3-dimensional effect
- Apparel products such as jackets, caps, towels and bags
- Durability - embroidery generally exceeds the life of the product being

Etching utilises photographic technology to prepare a film mask to etch into glass or crystal products.
Etching looks great on:
- Crystal and Glass products such as: trophies or plaques

Laser engraving is the process of using a focused laser to burn an impression into the surface of a material.
Laser engraving looks great on:
- Glass and Crystal products such as: Tropies or Plaques
- Metal products such as: USB Flash Drives, Key-Tags and Pens
- Plastic and Acrylic products
- Wood products

Pad printing is one of the most effective ways to brand a product. Ink is applied via a flexible silicone pad directly to the surface of a product leaving a colour print.
Pad printing is great for:
- Branding that requires a specific colour or multiple colours
- Branding that involves small, intricate designs

Screen printing is the process whereby ink is pressed through a fine mesh screen leaving a colour imprint on the surface of the material.
Screen printing is usually used on:
- Garments and larger cloth items - canvas, cotton, polyester, nylon,
micro fibre and faux leather
- Ceramics, plastics and foam


In order to brand your promotional products and embroidered clothing to the highest standard we require the correct form of electronic art. The preferred file type for most promotional product branding is a vectorised artwork file.

Vectorised Artwork (.eps, .ai or correl draw files) Artwork in the vector format are perfect for promotional products. This format ensures no loss in quality due to resizing and manipulation. We are happy to help reillustrating logos in Vector format.

Bitmap(.bmp), TIF(.tif), JPEG(.jpg) A bitmap file in high resolution is usually OK to use for promotional products, however as we want to achieve the highest quality print at all times we will review your file and may need to reillustrate into Vector format if required. Minimum resolution is 300 dpi and must be saved at least twice the print size.

PDF Files similar to JPEG files we may need to reillustrate in order to achieve excellent printing results. We would need to confirm on receipt of files if they are acceptable.

Fonts - any fonts used must be supplied or converted to outlines/curves to avoid font problems.

As a final check we will fax or email you an Artwork Approval?Form for your final approval. We will not proceed with the production of your order until you have given us permission by signing the Artwork Approval Form and any guarantees regarding delivery times will commence once we have received this signed form.
