The selection of items is done by clicking on the ADD TO INQUIRY LIST button, which is located next to each item in the detailed description. If the item has an option of choosing colors or sizes, the customer selects them after placing it on the inquiry list. A specific item can also be removed by clicking on the button.

The Customer can order a sample item. The Customer is charged the value of the sample, handling costs, and shipping costs (according to the price list of Post of Slovenia).

If the Customer wants the invoice to be issued to the company name, the Customer accepts the terms of business that apply to companies. The main difference is in the possibilities of withdrawing from the contract: we enable companies, sole proprietors, and other legal entities to return delivered items within the terms of warranty conditions.

The order is confirmed no later than 24 hours after receiving the order and the confirmation is sent to the Customer by e-mail which includes the approximate delivery date.

Information on branding techniques

Pad printing: Due to its ability to print multicolor motifs on three-dimensional surfaces, pad printing is one of the most versatile printing techniques. The design is applied to a metal printing plate via a photographic process, after which it is transferred to the product with a rubber swab. Various shapes of items can be printed with differently shaped pads using this technique and this technique also allows for multicolor printing. Practically all materials can be printed with pad printing as this printing technique is useful for various surfaces and linings. Most gifts on the website are made from synthetic materials for which this printing technique is the most suitable one. Ceramic items cannot be baked at a high temperature when printed with a pad. As a result, this technique does not ensure the durability of the imprint on ceramic items when washing in the dishwasher. Therefore, a transfer for ceramic materials is proposed for this purpose.

Screen printing is a printing technique in which the design is transferred onto a screen which has a light-sensitive top layer. The film prevents ultraviolet light from illuminating the sieve and certain places and, due to the sensitivity of the film, a design is formed. The item you want to print on is placed under the sieve, after which the impression is created by transferring the color through the mesh. Only flat surfaces can be printed on using this technique. Screen printing allows for multicolor printing but this technique is not suitable for textiles and polyester products such as umbrellas, bags, etc.

Screen printing transfer is a printing technique in which a design is printed onto a special paper called a transfer. The rubber pulls the printing paste over the sieve with a pre-coated sample, thus creating the imprint of the sample on the fabric. In principle, only flat surfaces are printed with this technique and it is used for branding textiles, umbrellas, bags, … Most of the products on offer can be printed with screen printing using only one color, and several additional colors can be applied using transfer. Screen transfer is a great way to print very small details. The colors are well absorbed into the base material with the help of an additional glue.

Round screen printing is a screen-printing technique used to print large areas of ballpoint pens.

Digital transfer is a printing technique in which the logo is digitally printed onto a special foil. The foil is then cut into the desired shape and the transfer is then transferred to the product by means of a heat press or a mechanical press. Such a printing technique is suggested for products made from textile polyester. This printing technique allows for multicolor graphics and is generally used to print smaller batches.

Digital label: Digital labels can also be made with the help of the machine. The printer digitally transfers the logo to a self-adhesive foil. If necessary, the label is also computer-trimmed. Trim shapes are only possible on designs that allow “one cut”. The digital cut-out allows you to make stand-alone stickers. The label is glued to the surface of the item after printing and thus personalizes the selected product.

Transfer for ceramics is a printing technique that is also suitable for ceramics since the logo is water and heat resistant (e.g., the print does not wash off while washing in the dishwasher). The logo is printed on the transfer paper by screen printing, after which it is transferred to the desired ceramic item. The item is baked in an oven at temperatures higher than 700 ° C after printing, thus baking the print onto the ceramic. During the baking process, the pores in the ceramic open and absorb the paint. Once the product has cooled, the paint cannot be removed by any of the usual cleaning or washing processes, and the result is a durable personalized ceramic product.

Embroidery is a technique in which a logo is sewn onto a product. It is useful for hats, T-shirts, jackets, bags, and other fabric products. It is considered to be the most enduring personification technique for textile products. The price of embroidery depends on the number of stitches and the size of the logo. As the graphics are more complex, its production requires more stitches, therefore the price of embroidery is higher. The number of embroidery colors does not affect the price and up to 15 different colors can be used. Before the first embroidery, it is necessary to create a program that can also be used for subsequent embroideries of the same logo.

Laser engraving is a technique of engraving by which the logo is ignited into a material with a laser beam. It is a branding technique with which we can personalize items made of materials such as wood, glass, leather, aluminum, plastic. The laser beam is controlled digitally via a computer so the result is an accurate design of the logo with a very high quality. The color of the created logo depends on the base and the lower layers of the workpiece. This technique is mostly used for branding smaller products such as ballpoint pens, key chains, leather diaries, glasses, bottles … The result is nicely branded products and the logo on them is durable.

Blind printing is a branding technique in which a logo with an embossed stamp is printed on the product. This technique can mainly be used on leather products where the final result is of high quality and beautiful. If the customer wishes, foils can also be used to achieve a gold or silver effect or the effect of some other color, and the final product is therefore even more special and visible.

Domin: is a printing method where a multicolor digital label is first printed on a label and then coated with an epoxy resin. It is a combination of the logo print on the label with a two-component epoxy resin that gives the logo a bubble-shaped finish. This gives the graphics a special 3D effect while the epoxy resin protects the graphics below from mechanical damage. This printing technique is suitable for branding small products.

Digital printing is an inkjet technique of printing on products with a flat or a 3D shape. This branding technique allows for almost any products to be directly printed on in very high quality. All printing options are possible, from high-resolution images to simple text, since digital printing can also be used in color printing with the details remaining visible and distinct.

Technical caveats

Printed colors may deviate due to the different absorbency of the surfaces.

AGARIC uses the Pantone Color Guide (C) coated scale as the color definition. Customers should follow this color scale when ordering.

The adhesion of paint on metal and chrome products may not be optimal and AGARIC business gifts cannot be held responsible if this occurs. The color print on metal products may be damaged by contact with sharp objects. This is highly likely to occur with metal key rings. Laser engraving is suggested for such cases. In the case of rough textile surfaces, the customer cannot be guaranteed 100% coverage with the screen printing technique. Screen printing transfer is advised in such cases. Round items have a limited print area.
