Please note:
For our FREE (in-house) artwork service to apply to your order we do need you to choose one of the 3 options above.
If you can't or don't want to do this then unfortunately, we are unable to offer the free artwork service to you.

If this is the case we will ask you to supply artwork files that are ready to print or we may quote for you a freelance graphic designer to create your artwork files for you.

How to proceed with our
FREE Artwork Service

Step 1 - Place your order
Please email your artwork requirements as per options one to three above, along with the quantity and any optional extras you need, for example, sequential numbering or barcodes. A deposit payment may be needed at this stage.

Our email address is

Step 2 - Your email proof is prepared
Once we have received your request and deposit payment, our studio will start work on your artwork.

A wonderful realistic proof will be emailed to you for approval, this usually takes around an hour or two.

Step 3 - If changes to your email proof are required
After seeing your email proof, if any changes are required, just reply to the email letting us know the alterations required. Your balancing payment is made at this stage and once received our studio can then make the changes for you and they will email a new proof to you to approve.

If you then require further changes, no problem, just email the changes to us and our studio will make the changes and email another proof to you for approval.

Step 4 - Approval to print your plastic cards

information on our free artwork service

Points to note:

For all 3 options, we will create a photo-realistic email proof for you to approve before we print your cards.

Any logos or graphics required on your cards need to be provided as high quality computer files (pdf, jpeg etc) - unfortunately we cannot provide any logos or graphics. Providing a hand drawn image depicting a logo or graphic isn't enough, we need the actual computer generated file.

We are offering a basic service which is limited to 20 minutes studio time per customer, this is more than adequate for the majority of orders.

If your artwork requirements are deemed as not suitable for the free artwork service or it becomes apparent during the email proofing stage that the service is not suitable, we will inform you and ask for either print ready artwork to be supplied or we will quote you for the work involved.

Please understand, we are not offering a graphic design service, nor do we employ graphic designers.
We are unable to offer: ideas / suggestions, design concepts, opinions on colour schemes or guidance on layouts etc.

We are genuinely trying to help you by offering this free service, however we do need your understanding and co-operation.

Our free artwork service

We are unable to create a range of designs for you to choose from.

We can create a design for you based on one of the many plastic card examples on our website.

We are unable to create a logo for you - logos are very personal and very time consuming to create, due to this we are unable to create logos.

We are unable to modify existing graphics such as your existing logo or edit or retouch photographs.

We are unable to identify fonts or provide suggestions e.g. asking us to choose a stylish / funky / sophisticated font. We are happy for you to tell us which font to use but we may ask you to provide the font file if we do not already have it.

Our FREE Artwork Service is a basic and simple service which is aimed to help people who don't have the ability to create their design in a printable format.

If you want to use your own graphic designer, please give them our artwork guides so they can create your design to the correct specification for us to print from.


Please remember, we are a Printing Company not a Graphic Design Company however, we do our best to offer assistance for people struggling to put their own idea into a printable format by offering to put your design together FREE of charge.

We do however reserve the right to ask for a deposit. This is not an extra cost to you, the service is still free.
We just ask for your order to be completed within 20 days of the deposit being made, the deposit covers one email proof.

If we feel the free service is not suitable for you, we reserve the right to revoke it. You are still welcome to provide print ready files so that we can print the cards for you.
