We offer flat ABS ruler printing with the print work done on white. These rulers are useful as bookmarks as well. We do ruler printing using the screen-printing process. In addition, we also offer print on pre-manufactured factory rulers. This basic, everyday item provides great opportunities in relation to promotional items because your company name and contact details are viewed every time the ruler is used.
THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES
There are no actual pros and cons for prefabricated factory rulers versus ABS flat rulers, it is merely a matter of personal choice. 0.9mm ABS sheets of 310mm X 180mm are used and we can cut four rulers at a time and reduce the length individually to 310mm X 45mm. Pre-fabricated factory rulers are printed separately. (To make the order worth-while we request a minimum order of 300 rulers).
PRINTING METHODS FOR RULER PRINTING
We make use of three methods of printing on rulers:
- Pad printing to a maximum of 35mm in length/diameter,
- Screen printing for a maximum of up to 6 spot colours or
- digital UV printing (Computer to printer)
We do however make exceptions on request, by using full colour digital printed stickers and manually sticking them to each ruler. We do, however, not recommend this method, as the frequent handling of the ruler wears the ink off, and the stickers usually comes undone. Stickers on promotional items are only used in emergencies or as a last resort when clients are pressed for time and need orders to be completed urgently.
The price of your printing is dictated by the number of colours you use in your design. On quantities of about 200 rulers with more than 2 colours in the design we make use of the digital printing process.
When we print digitally the price of your printing is dictated by the size of your print and not by the number of colours used in your design such as in the case of screen- or pad-printing.
