Frequently asked questions

Can you produce custom placards?

Yes. Please contact us by phone, email or using the form on the CONTACT US page.

What information do you require to produce custom placards?

We require the wording and basic dimensions. The more information you give us the better - you can provide us the information by email, or as an attachment ideally in PDF but we can accept word documents, excel spreadsheets or even hand drawn sketches.
We can also reverse engineer your old placards if you send them to us and they are in a good enough condition.

How much do custom placards cost?

We have a minimum order charge for custom placards of £35.00 exc. VAT. Placards are priced on the time it takes to produce the artwork, the material cost and the manufacturing cost.

How long will it take to receive my custom placards?

Normally between 2-5 working days, depending on the complexity and quantity. Once you have approved the artwork proof we will begin manufacturing by the next working day.

How does the ordering process work for custom placards?

Once you have got in contact with us with your requirements, we will produce an artwork proof and send it through to you as a 1:1 scale PDF so you can check for any spelling errors, missing elements, issues etc. and confirm that it is exactly as per your requirements. At this stage we will also send you a quotation. If you are happy with the artwork proof and price, please approve the proof by email and we will send you an invoice. Once this has been paid, we will begin manufacturing within 1 working day.

What are your shipping costs?

Shipping is charged by weight and will be calculated on checkout.

Do your prices include VAT?

All prices exclude VAT and shipping. This is added once you reach the checkout pages of our website. All orders are subject to our standard terms and conditions.

What is the application technique?

1. Bond strength is dependent upon the amount of adhesive-to-surface contact developed. Firm application pressure develops better adhesive contact & thus improves bond strength. 2. To obtain optimum adhesion, the bonding surfaces must be clean dry and well unified. A typical surface cleaning solvent is isopropyl alcohol & water. Use proper safety precautions for handling solvents. 3. Ideal tape application temperature range is 21°C to 38°C (70°F to 100°F). Initial tape application to surfaces at temperatures below 10°C (50°F) is not recommended because the adhesive becomes too firm to adhere readily. However once properly applied low temperature holding is generally satisfactory.
