It's the same colour but it still looks different!

We do try, but it is physically impossible to get a particular pantone colour looking exactly the same on the entire range of promotional merchandise.

The reason is that different items are made from varying materials and are printed differently on the various machines. These machines in turn require their own ink systems and different ink systems have different types of pigmentation.

Another issue is that colour perception depends under what light source you view something. We all know how something on a computer screen looks different depending on what angle you look at it. A printer who is printing promotional merchandise could match items under a light source, but under a different light source they may not match and might even look completely different from each other.

Tricky stuff, sometimes!


Chewing gum plastic

Nobody likes to see chewing gum litter!

It is an eyesore and really difficult to clean up.

Now we have a new plastic compound available in the market which is made of chewed gum waste from special collection bins. The collection bins themselves are made from this recycled compound. This compound can be used to manufacture a whole range of promotional products such as fisbees, rulers etc.

Basically any item which is usually made from plastic. These products - made from recycled chewing gum - may particulary appeal to universities and local authorities as they can be printed with a message about disposing chewing gum in a responsible manner.
