How Your Custom Light Up Pens Are Printed & Made
Our specialist dye sublimation printing methods fuse the ink into the surface of the pen torch lid. This creates a vibrant and more-lasting finish, that won't peel or rub away, meaning your design will look impeccable. Your LED torch pen has been expertly crafted in Germany and finished by hand in London. The torch pen comes complete with an LR41 battery, as well as a blue ink cartridge. Our technicians finish your pen by placing it in a clear gift tube pack, which adds, even more, wow factor.
As the ink is fused into the surface of the pen, you don't have to worry about your design being rubbed away. If your custom light up pens get a little grubby, simply wipe them clean with a damp cloth.
Although a pen doesn't have the largest print surface area, there is still plenty of room to make a lasting impression. Your design is printed around the whole diameter of the pen lid (approximately 4.5cm diameter). This creates a smart wrap-around effect. Repeat patterns and single photographs look great, as does text. You can even create a design that features both! Keep into consideration the pen clip, which goes down one side of the pen lid. If you do not want your design to be interfered with by the clip, we suggest using the online preview tool to get the orientation of your design exactly as you want it.

Frequently asked questions:
What part of the pen torch can I customise?
You can customise the lid of the pen, which takes up roughly three quarters of the pen. Your designs are printed in an attractive wrap-around finish, which creates a flawless look.
Is it a pen? Is it a torch?
It's both! We call it a pen first and foremost, as that is what it is mainly used for, but the addition of the LED light also makes this a striking and slimline torch.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
