Please Note that we are closed for the Christmas break and will be reopening again on the 11th January 2016
Thank you for your understanding.

NOTICE : WE CAN NO LONGER OFFER INSTALLATIONS FOR SIGNS OR VEHICLE DECALS - See vinyl installation page for DIY installation instructions - plastic squeegies if required, are available for purchase from our office on collection of your order.

General Information and Artwork Requirements

To get the best result when deciding to either print or cut vinyl stickers or to print banners and other vinyl products, we have given some best practice guidelines below.

Artwork Requirements

While we can offer you artwork and design services, if you decide to do your own artwork, we can open and work from the following programs and file formats:
Corel Photo Paint
Adobe Illustrator
Adobe Acrobat

File formats: jpeg, bmp, tif, ai, psd, pdf, cdr, cpt, fh7/8/9/10/11
Vinyl sticker artwork works best if it has a resolution of 300dpi if its to be printed in full colour.
If you have a file that's not listed above and are not sure if we can work with it, please contact us.

Vinyl Vehicle Stickers and Vehicle Wraps

If you decide you'd like us to apply vinyl stickers to your vehicle, existing sign board or any other substraite you supply, you need to make sure its clean, but do not polish or use silicone polish on the areas where the vinyl sticker is to be applied. Doing so will possibly result in the vinyl coming off or peeling from the edges. If you do your own artwork for a vehicle we advise you contact us for specifications as there are limitations you need to keep in mind. If you'd like to apply your own vinyl we have a few tools available and advice when you collect your stickers from us.

Sign Boards

There are some things to consider when wanting to install a sign board. Firstly, do you have permission from the relevant authorities and landlords (if applicable) to do so? Is the sign board going to be outdoors in direct sunlight? What material will the vinyl be applied to? What life time are you expecting from the sign? Please contact us for answers to these and other questions you may have.

Lead Time

Depending on the scale and size of the project, this will be discussed when we prepare your quotation.

Payment Terms

Strictly COD on completion of the project. 35% upfront deposit may be requested for larger projects. 100% up front payment will be required from clients located outside of KwaZulu Natal.
Quotations are valid for 7 days only and manufacture will only commence on receipt of a signed proof/approval and payments if applicable.


Free local delivery included within 20kms from our offices. Outside of 20kms distance, deliveries will be charged for at R7.50 per km to a maximum of 100km. Deliveries to outside the 100kms or to other areas can be sent by courier at an agreed price. Courier prices will be shown with your initial quotation if required. We are not responsible for transit damage if "own" courier is used.


Vehicle Decals - Some vehicle designs may require trimming of the vinyl on the body of the vehicle which may result in minor scratches to the vehicle paintwork. Whilst we take the utmost care when working with your vehicle we cannot be held responsible for damage as a result of the application process. Vehicle collections and deliveries cannot be done by us, you will need to insure that you deliver your vehicle to our premises and collect it when the work has been done.
If you request reproductions of original artwork that are to be reproduced by us, are only accepted on the strict understanding that you have the legal right to reproduce that work and that you will indemify us against any action arising out of any copyright infringement.
