Staff Christmas Gifts personalised with your Employee’s Name

by Elyse on July 5, 2010

At Christmas time we have lots of requests from companies to have their Staff Christmas Gifts personalised with their employee names. Most people are not aware of the personalisation options JEM Promotional Products have available so we decided we would outline them all in this blog:

Jacket with Personalised Name

  • Embroidered Name

If you are doing a product made of fabric e.g. clothing, most bags, caps, towels etc. there is the opportunity to add a personalised embroidered name. The cost is $6.00 per name and this will allow up to 5,000 stitches. Because it is just text this can cover even large names printed around 25cm on the bottom of a beach towel. There is no additional cost if you choose from one of our standard fonts of which we have hundreds to choose from. However if you do want the names written in a specific font there may be  a small set-up fee of between $30 to $45 + GST.

Cost: $6.00 + GST per name. This is based on 5,000 stitches and so the size will depend on the font used. For most standard fonts the size of an 8 character name would be between 20cm-25cm. You can request a smaller size but the price does not change.

  • Engraved Name

If you are giving a product that is made out of metal e.g. metal pens, key rings, desk items etc. it is possible to add a personalised engraved name. The below prices are based on an engraving area of 30 x 20mm (or 600mm square) in size or equivalent. For engraving we just need the names supplied in a Word Document.

Cost: The cost is dependent on whether you are just having a personalised name or if you are having a name and a logo engraved together. Please see below for overview.

NAMES

On Pens – $0.15 each name + GST

On Key Ring – $0.20 each name + GST

On Compendiums (with existing metal badge) – $0.35 each name + GST

On most other desk/small items – $0.25 each name + GST

Artwork Set-up for unlimited number of names is $50 + GST

NAMES + LOGO/ARTWORK IN SAME POSITION

On Pens – $0.20 each name + GST

On Key Ring – $0.25 each name + GST

On Compendiums (with existing metal badge) – $0.50 each name + GST

On most other desk/small items – $0.35 each name + GST

Artwork Set-up for unlimited number of names & 1 logo/artwork is $85 + GST

  • Direct Digitally Printed Name

JEM Promotional Products have a new branding method called Direct Digital Printing where you can do a full colour process print on a variety of items without it costing extra than a standard 1 or 2 colour pad print. Follow this link to read more about and see which products can be Direct Digital Printed.

The best thing about this branding method is that we can actually personalise each item with a personal name at NO ADDITIONAL COST. For this personalisation option we just need a separate copy of your artwork file for each person with only their name appearing. You can provide this or we can prepare the files you for at a cost of $85 + GST per hour. It takes us approximately a minute per name to edit and save the file.

Cost: NIL if a logo is already being printed

  • Sublimated Name

On all neoprene (Stubby Cooler material) products we are able to do a printing method called Sublimation. Sublimation allows us to print full colour artworks and even photos onto neoprene. printing process that uses heat to transfer dye onto a medium such as a plastic card, paper, or fabric. The dye transitions between the solid and gas states without going through a liquid stage.

Example of neoprene products we have available are Stubby Coolers.

Cost: As long as the neoprene product you are purchasing is already being decorated with a full colour sublimation print there is no additional cost to add a personalised name. For this personalisation option we just need a separate copy of your artwork file for each person with only their name appearing. You can provide this or we can prepare the files you for at a cost of $85 + GST per hour.

  • Decal Name on Ceramics

    Personalised Name on Mug

    Personalised Name on Mug

If you are buying your staff Coffee Mugs as their Christmas Gift you can have their name personalised on the mug. People become very protective of their mug and generally don’t like to share so having your name on the mug is a perfect way to identify it as yours and prevent coffee cup thief’s from using it!

The personalisation size will be dependent on the max print area on the actual mug and each style varies. The more basic the shape, the larger the print area. The personalised name needs to be on the same side as the logo and be printed in the same colour. The name is applied as a decal before the mug is fired. One it has been fired it is dishwasher safe and so the name will not come off.

Cost: $1.10 each + GST. There is also an artwork set-up of $80 + GST per screen. Each screen can fit 80 names using most Microsoft standard fonts.

  • Embossed Name on Leathergoods

If you are giving your employees an executive leather product like a Compendium,  Travel Wallet, Leather Bookmark or Luggage Tag we can emboss your staff’s name into the actual leather. If you are not familiar with embossing the best way to describe it is a metal stamp is heated up and then is applied to the leather using pressure. It is very similar to how a cow is branded.

The standard font we use is New Gothic Size 12. We can fit approximately 20 characters max per line therefore larger names will require 2 lines.

Cost:

1-5 units: $16.50 each + GST

6-10 units: $9.90 each + GST

11-25 units: $8.80 each + GST

26-50 units: $7.70 each + GST

51-100 units: $6.60 each + GST

Bulky items like Leather wine totes require price on application.

  • Heat Transfer Name

If you are doing casual apparel for your staff like t-shirts, jumpers or jerseys it is possible to apply heat transfer letters on the back of the garment to write their name. The letters are made of the same vinyl material that is used for sports numbers on the back of jerseys.

The standard letters are 5cm and come in Navy, White or Black. Other styles are available at additional cost. These styles include Neon (Hi Vis), Glitter, Flock, Reflective (Foil). The maximum width that fits onto a standard garment is 40cms but this will be dependent on the garment size. 40cm fits approximately 8 characters on one line.

Cost: $6.00 each + GST for approximately 8 characters. There is an artwork set-up of $80 + GST per line.

All the above methods are our most common methods of personalisation. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on (02) 8205 1334 or enquiries@jempp.com.au if you have any questions.
