Curious what an Direct Printed Gong looks like?
Take a peek at the slideshow below and keep scrolling for more info.
Yes, it is basically permanent. No one can wipe off the printing we do on your gong with some glass cleaner or similar.
First you need to purchase a gong. You can email or call us and let us help you discern the best gong to get to show off the image or words that you want to put on it.
IT IS ONLY FOR GONGS 12" AND SMALLER IN DIAMETER.
Please do not ask us if we can print on gongs larger than this. We cannot.
Any regular English letters or numbers we can do without much from you. We have many fonts available. Take a look at dafont.com. It is best not to choose a font that is very curvy, or looks distressed, etc. Choose a font from the serif or sans serif sections.
PRINTING BUSINESS LOGOS:
(NOTE: We can't do printing of your watercolor paintings, do not send us those.)
Let's be clear, the color printing service takes a LITTLE EXTRA TIME. Most of the year the whole process takes 7 to 10 business days. NO OVERNIGHT ORDERS for printing! Sorry.
PLEASE NOTE: We always do art proofs of what you are getting printed before we touch the gong, however these proofs are not for free. They cost us money. Please do not ask for a free art proof before you purchase the gong. If you must have one, the price is 20 dollars, which can be applied to the engraving if you go forward with it.
To give you a GENERAL idea of cost...it all depends on the time it takes them to do it. Complex designs can cost more. For most designs the printing fees are usually from $45 to $70.
GENERAL GONG PRINTING FEES:
WHY?Because printing is based on time (!!!) not size or design, and that changes with each item. Our estimates above are usually right on. We have been printing of gongs since 2012, so we know things, and we totally keep you in the loop the whole way.
