CERAMIC DECAL SHEET
Foley Studio is committed to working with you.
We offer a professional service and are here to help you achieve a bespoke
product to the quality it deserves.
Our design studio offers two print options:
A system which enables your designs and illustrations, even photographs to be generated on a computer and digitally printed as a quality transfer.
Proofing time scales and costs are minimal, allowing you to be more creative and adventurous
even on short runs.
A system which enables bold solid colour transfer onto ware. Especially good for decorating on white ceramic items. We are able to offer 1, 2 , 3 and 4 colour transfers.
We will endeavour to match the colours of your artwork as closely as possible with our digital ceramic pigments. If you feel that your artwork is colour critical, please supply a "printed" colour standard.
Our digital printing system works in 4 colour process
C / M / Y / K
Cyan / Magenta / Yellow / Black ( Key )
We do not guarantee an exact colour match but will produce print that is sensitive to your original artwork.
Should you require repeat orders of your prints / fired products, we suggest at the time of placing an order that you consider this and instruct us to produce further prints.
This is to ensure colour consistency from order to order.
Should your work be colour critical may we suggest contacting us to talk through
your options in detail.
It is important to note that although ceramic decal printing offers excellent finishes to your product, we cannot guarntee colour matching and
repeat colour matching
This is due to nature of the toner used are created from organic materials and not syntheic materials as seen in traditional printing methods.
colours prodcuced will appear muted in comparison.
