Your Corporate Colours

VERY IMPORTANT! If your logo has specific colours, usually PANTONE COLOURS, you need to supply us with these please. It is of vital importance to make us aware of these special PANTONE COLOURS as what you see on your screen is by no means exactly what will be printed on the actual fabric or pvc we print on. We cannot take responsibility for colour variations if these PANTONE COLOURS are not given to us.
