Frequently Asked Questions

What is your minimum order value?

Our minimum order value is one of the lowest in the industry, just £15.

How are the self-adhesive graphics supplied?

All of our custom self-adhesive graphics are supplied in an easy-to-peel sheet format. Smaller graphics are supplied with multiple graphics per sheet, but larger graphics are supplied individually.

Can your self-adhesive graphics be applied using water?

When applying large self-adhesive graphics, wetting the surface with water using a spray bottle can allow for easier bubble-free application. Many of our self-adhesive graphics, including window graphics, frosted window graphics and vinyl lettering can be wet-applied.

Are there any setup or design fees?

Here at Colour Frog we are proud to say that we have no hidden charges. To keep ordering simple, all that you pay is the cost of the products, delivery and VAT on the total. That means no origination fees, no setup fees and no design fees!

How much do your products cost?

All of our prices are based on the product size and the chosen quantity. The more you buy, the cheaper each graphic becomes. As the size of each graphic is different, we don't have a static price list. Instead, you can get an instant quote by filling out our easy to use quote form. You'll get a price immediately that you can print or email directly from the page. If you want to order online straight away, simply choose your product and follow the order process!

How can I pay for my order?

There are 4 different methods of payment that you can choose from on our website:

  • Credit / Debit card
  • PayPal

  • Cheque

The Credit / Debit card and PayPal options are an instant payment, causing no delay to your order. Bank transfer can take between 24-72 hours to be confirmed and cheques may take several working days to clear. If you choose to pay by bank transfer or cheque your order will be placed on hold until payment is received or your cheque has been cleared.

Can you install the signs / graphics for me?

Our quality of service is the best in the industry and we strive to keep it that way. At Colour Frog we offer a reliable, friendly service and we invite you to give us a call at any time on 01790 75 58 58.

How long have you been in the industry?

We have been in the printing industry for more than 35 years, gathering a vast amount of professional knowledge that we can use to help you create the perfect custom graphics for you or your company.

Other aspects of promotional printing that we can provide you with include Stickers, Name Badges, Heat Seal Transfers, T-Shirt Vinyl, Plotter Cutters and Workwear.

Do you supply a digital proof before printing?

If you order your custom graphics on our website, a digital proof will be shown on screen after you click the "Finished Designing" button. Please check this carefully to ensure everything looks correct. The pink line denotes the edge of the graphic and will not be printed.

If you place your order via email or by using the "Upload artwork" option, we will send you a PDF proof for approval. The order will not enter production until the PDF proof has been approved in writing (email) and payment has been received. If at all possible, it's always faster to place your order on our website as there are no delays for emails to be sent/received and no waiting for artwork approval.

How do you print the products?

We print all of our products using state of the art, high resolution digital printing machines. We print using CMYK inks but the exact print method differs depending on the product chosen. For more details, please see the Technical tab on the relevant product page.

How do you prefer my artwork / logo to be supplied?

When designing your graphic online, the website allows you to upload .jpg .jpeg .png .gif .pdf .eps and .ai files. Via email, we can accept logos and badge designs in almost any format, just send us the best quality logo you have and we'll be able to produce the best possible result.

As a general rule, our preferred file formats are .pdf .ai and .eps. Other common file formats that we can accept include .jpg .jpeg .doc and .docx. As previously mentioned, we can open almost anything. In the unlikely event that you send us a file we cannot open, we will contact you about your options. We can currently accept files via email up to around 10MB. To find out more about submitting your own artwork and logos please visit our artwork guidelines page.

Does the website check the quality of my artwork?

Our website allows you to upload .jpg .jpeg .png .gif .pdf .eps and .ai files. When designing your product if you upload an image the website will display a quality message. This check is based on the resolution of your image and can give one of the following results:

  • Very Poor - We don't recommend that you print this image at the current size.
  • Poor - Consider making the image smaller or uploading a higher resolution image.
  • Okay - Consider making the image smaller or uploading a higher resolution image.
  • Good
  • Excellent

If you upload a .pdf .eps or .ai file then the system is unable to determine the quality of your artwork. Because it is a document rather than an image it could contain different images and vectors of varying qualities and sizes. For this reason we simply show the message:

Image quality cannot be determined for PDF, EPS and AI files.

In all cases we will print the file as supplied. If you are unsure about the quality of your .pdf .eps or .ai file then please contact us, attaching the file and letting us know the size that you intend to have it printed. We will review your file and let you know what options are available.

How long can I store self-adhesive graphics before applying them?

Under normal circumstances we recommend that our self-adhesive graphics are applied within approximately 6 months of receipt. They should be stored flat in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

For more details, please see the relevant technical datasheet.
