About Merchandise methods

Decoration methods

Choosing the most effective process for decorating your new product is easy… Leave it to the Mayhem team. Using our vast experience and extensive knowledge of the processes available we’ll advise you what’s going to compliment your product and enhance your branding.

Pad Printing

Most substrates are good for pad printing such as wood, plastic, metals and paper. Different inks are available and vary depending on the product to be printed on. The ability to print on curved and unusual surfaces is the biggest advantage of pad printing.

Screen Printing

Flat, smooth, single layer surfaces are best suited to screen printing. 100% cotton fabrics, poly/cotton blends, most nylons, vinyl, calico, transfer papers, corflut and metal sheeting are all suitable. This process has the ability to produce strong vibrant spot or process prints on woven textiles, allowing relatively large images to be printed compared to alternative print processes.

Debossing, Embossing and Foil Stamping

These are time honoured ways of decorating compendiums, diaries, card, leather products, vinyl, plastic, acrylic and wood. For as long as the surface of the item remains intact debossing will never rub off or disappear. Under normal conditions, foil stamping will not scratch or rub off.

Laser engraving

Anything that produces a high contrast will produce the best engraving result. Black maglites produce a matt silver result and offer excellent contrast, highly polished chrome products engrave exceptionally well also. Some plastics can also be engraved. Laser engraving is permanent and lasts for the life of the product.


Clothing, caps, towels, bags, satchels – woven surfaces work best with this process. Nylon, polyester, cotton drills, felt and knitted fabrics are next but require slightly varied program designs to compensate for the fabrics. As well as lasting for usually the life of your product embroidery is also colourfast, will not fade and has a fantastic quality finish. Lettering under 3.55mm is generally too small to embroider.

Artwork files explained

Vector EPS Image

This image is made up of lines and curves joined together via anchor points set by mathematical calculations. These images are easy to edit without compromising quality, they also allow PMS colours to be applied – excellent for corporate branding.

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)

A JPEG is a compressed image file, these images are not limited to a certain amount of colour like GIF images are. Therefore this format is best for compressing photographic images. JPEG’s can be created using Photoshop or Illustrator and can be exported through InDesign and Acrobat – they cannot be sued with Quark.

GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)

These files are compressed raster images files, similar to JPEG. These files are more suitable to web design. Photoshop and Paint can be used to create these files but they cannot be created using Quark.

TIFF (Tagged Image File Format)

TIF is the leading commercial and professional image standard and can be placed into almost any application. Although they aren’t the most economical files due to the file size these files (when created properly) provide excellent print reproduction.
