Frequently Asked Questions
We require all artwork to be sent in an editable Adobe Illustrator format (Ai, EPS, PDF etc.) although our artwork department will look at any files you wish to submit. All fonts need to be converted to outlines and any images included as part of the artwork need to be embedded within the artwork. Our sales team will be happy to advise if you have any queries.
If colour matching is required a sample of the colour to match to will be needed otherwise the job colours will be determined by the artwork you send us. Please note that colours take on a very different hue when back illuminated. Where we are producing lenses on transparent material, in clear acrylic, we will colour match to the illuminated version. In this case, if you wish us to match for a non illuminated version then please bring this to our attention.
All photo files are required to be a minimum ¼ size at 300 dpi to enable the best possible print quality. We will refer back to you if we think the quality of the image will compromise the job.
Embossing and Debossing
For embossed/debossed jobs the artwork should include a separate layer so that it is clear from the artwork which areas are to be embossed/debossed. Embossing/debossing requires hard tooling to be manufactured so clarity here is important to allow the manufacturing process to run smoothly.
We will always send PDF proofs via email prior to commencement of the job. Please allow time within your schedule for the proofing process.
What shapes are available?
Our Semi-Permanent clips are available in any shape - we'll cut to the shape of your design.
Can Semi-Permanent clips be curved?
Yes, simple curvature East-West or North-South are available. But also compound curvature or a domed shape can be achieved.
Note: pump clips printed to a mirrored-plastic cannot be curved.
Are there any tooling costs?
For printed and embossed aluminium pump clips you will need to invest in an embossing die. We also recommend the purchase of a blanking tool to cut out the aluminium shape.
For small quantities of up to 100 or so parts we can CNC cut out the parts although an investment in a CNC jig will be required. Our sales team will advise on tooling so that the most cost effective route to manufacture can be found.
What are the maximum dimensions for pump clips?
In theory pump clips can be any size but the main limiting factor will not be in manufacture but on the space on the bar. Anything above 120mm in width means there is a danger that the pump clip will encroach upon the adjacent pump clip on the adjacent tap. So no wider than that 120mm would be a good rule of thumb. In terms of height, 200mm would be tall. Somewhere below 160mm would be in the sweet spot.
What pump clip fixings are available?
With our Semi-Permanent Pump Clips we offer a twin screw fixing and a simpler terry clip style fixing.
The twin screw fixing is applied to our permanent and sometimes requested on our semi permanent range. It is fixed to the handle, as the name would suggest by two screws and incorporates a square tasting note saddle.
The terry clip is simply forced onto the tap handle so is quick to install. The fixing of the clip to the print is usually done on bar. It has sufficient rigidity to be able to hold a relatively light print in place. It is available in black or white and has the facility for a tasting note to be fixed to it.
Can I have my pump clips individually bagged?
Our Guest clips are usually packed in 25’s separate from the plastic terry clips. They can be individually bagged at an additional cost.
