Can you make special shapes?
Yes, but this will involves additional costs for a die cutter, P.O. A. You should also try to avoid images that follow the contour of the label, for example a circular label where the image has areas that follow the outline path of the label (i.e. circle in circle). It is ok to use this type of artwork, but there will be a production tolerance of up to 1.5 to 2mm, so you should be prepared to accept a certain percentage of holograms that are not central in the final cut label.
How thick are the labels / stickers?
They are 25 microns thick, they can be supplied with permanent or removable adhesive and you have a choice of non-tamper evident or tamper evident (once stuck, if removed the hologram and adhesive will be destroyed and randomly left behind making it impossible to transfer or copy it).
Do you offer colours other than Silver?
Yes, we can also offer Gold and Transparent.
Do I get proof?
You will get an Adobe PDF or other digital visual of your hologram prior to production. It is not economically viable to make a true hologram proof. However, if this is essential, we can quote you for a proof separately.
What is the lead time?
From start to finish, typically around 15 to 20 working days.
Can I have them with sequential /serial numbers?
Yes, we can reverse laser etch them, this makes them extra secure and provides a small transparent number on the label without detracting from the hologram. Please ask us for a quotation.
Can I have them on rolls?
Yes, but only for large volume orders. Please contact us for further information.
How secure are they?
I only need a very small amount, do you offer any stock holograms?
Yes. Please click here to buy stock hologram labels.
Can you send us any samples?
Of course. Please contact us with your address details and contact name, and we'll get them out to you asap!
How can we order and pay?
Please contact us first with your requirement. We will then ask to see your artwork design. Subject to our evaluation and approval, we will then issue a pro-forma invoice. Next we provide a visual digital bitmap proof for your approval. Upon your acceptance, we will then require payment prior to commencement of production.
When we place a repeat order, does the price drop?
Of course. Repeat orders will be minus the Hologram origination cost, and quoted on a sheet quantity basis. Lead-time will also come down to approximately 15 working days.
