How it works

DESIGN

Our graphic designers have a high standard of excellence, and will help you with your preliminary design ideas. It can be a picture, photograph, drawing or email description. Your sales assistant will guide you through this process.

Your individual budget
Complexity of design
Weight and size
Finish: see Step 5

Amount of colour
Ribbon choice and printing requirement

PLACING YOUR ORDER

Once we have discussed and established your specific needs you will receive your preliminary designs, timeline, individualized quotation and payment terms. Adjustments to the design and quotation can be made to meet your budget. Once accepted, you will then be required to sign off the quotation, timelines and freight costs. We will now proceed to the final design stage.

PRODUCTION

High Pressure Zinc Die-casting

The advantage of die-cast items is that just about any shape or form can be re-produced, consistently at high quality. Products are electro-plated for different finishes.

Pressings

These products are stamped or pressed out of brass , or precious alloys on demand.

We can also do 24 carat gold plating – bright or matt.

FREIGHT

Lead Time and Freight Options after design approval

International Orders

Option1 – By Sea

3 months or 12 weeks after initiation. Allow 6 weeks freight to Europe, and 10 weeks to America or Japan.

Option 2 – By Air

6 weeks after initiation. Air freight takes up to 2 weeks, depending on the destination and the airline used

Option 3 – Express Air

6 weeks after initiation, BUT if last minute changes are made to either the design or quantity we will need to use express freight which takes 1 week. This is extremely expensive at double normal air freight costs.
