Hype Branding

Branding Options     


When submitting artwork for your merchandise orders, we can accept almost any type of electronic file, Mac or PC. Please feel free to email studio@hypebranding.co.uk with any questions that you would like us to answer or files that you would like us to check over for suitability.

Please forward your artwork as early as possible in the process so we can advise you on the best way that your logo can be presented on your chosen promotional item. We offer a range of branding capabilities including: 

Screen Print

A screen print is the application of a single colour at a time through a custom made 'template' or 'stencil' on to a flat or curved surface. A second or more pass would need to be made to apply additional colours from the design. Screen print costs vary depending upon whether or not an automated machine process is possible, semi-automated process is employed or traditional manual technique used. Screen printing is great for most three dimensional objects made from plastics, wood, metal, textiles, glass and ceramics.

Tampo or Pad Print

The most effective way of applying up to 4 colour process on to flat, curved or recessed areas. Ink is applied from an etched plate via a rubberised pad. This in turn applies ink under correct pressure lifted from the plate. Tampo or pad printing is great for just about every desk top item. Anything made from firm, hard or semi soft materials can be printed whether they are flat or curved, recessed or indented.

Acid Etching

Similar to screen printing but instead of using coloured ink an abrasive acid chemical is applied though the template instead. This chemical erodes and affects the products surface leaving a contrasting area. Acid etching is great for glass, metal, wood and ceramics providing an 'embossed' look.


Applied with a powerful laser or via a diamond-tipped tool, engraving will burn or scratch into your chosen product leaving a mark that will outlive any other print or branding technology in normal general use. Laser engraving is great for chrome or stainless steel, glass, crystal and wooden objects.

Litho Process Printing

Litho process printing can be used to give your design greater depth through the use of tints, tones and gradients. A litho process can use as many spot colours as you like.
Litho process is great for paper and cardboard items, poly, textiles, larger flatter surfaces made from PVC and plastics.

4 Colour Process Printing

Cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink is used to produce a final finish as good as a photograph. 4 Colour process printing is great for paper, cardboard, textiles and other flat surfaces including PVC and plastics technologies.

Transfer Printing

Transfers are printed up to 4 colour process on to a flat, vinyl material. It is then applied to your chosen item via chemical adhesion and heat application. Transfer printing is great for ceramics, glass, textiles, PVC and plastics. 

Digital Printing

Allows files to be printed direct from the computer on to material, removing the need for plates or film. Digital printing is great for paper, plastics and textiles providing short runs and a quick turn around.

Hot Foil Blocking

Application of coloured foil on to leather or PVC, in particular diaries and desk sets.
Hot foil blocking is great for leather diary products.


A way of stitching your design into garments, bags, vinyl and other thin materials. Clarity will never be as crisp as print on to for example plastics, but outlasts, and outperforms print on to garments.
Embroidery is great for clothing, textiles, thin PVC and
other flat, thin or soft surfaces.


Custom set loom to create a garment or bag from scratch to your specific design. A polo shirt with two different coloured arms, club tie and ladies scarf set, towel or custom made neck lapel are but a few examples. Great for textiles and woven neck labels.


Application of label to finished product. 4 Colour process and litho process employed to print labels to specific size on materials such as paper, vinyl and plastics. Great for application of 4 Colour process design to a product that would not ordinarily be able to have print process applied to it.
