Artwork

Yes, and there is no extra charge for a logo. However you must remember that a pen has more length than height and not all logos suit being shrunk to small sizes.  If you’re not sure, you can always send through your logo file in PDF/EPS (vector) files for us to put together an obligation-free artwork mock for you.  

Email your artwork to [email protected]aboutpens.com.au. Please send your logo as an EPS, original PDF or Corel file.  JPEG, PNG image files etc are not suitable.  

Currently, About Pens offer 3 types of printing services.  Pad Print in 1 or 2 colours, Full Colour Digital Print (mostly on plastic pens), and Laser Engraving (on metal pens only). 

You can specify generic colours like black, blue, white etc, or specific PMS colour codes that reflect your logo or brand guideline.  Metallic colours like silver and gold can only be printed via pad printing.
