Stage 1

You contact IML's Sales Team with a basic specification and receive a no obligation quote by email, fax, post or verbally if preferred.

You provide us with a basic drawing or sketch of how you envisage the finished badge will look and provide any logosand specific colour references to be included.  We forward graphically designed artwork to you for approval.  Please note -  manufacturing will not commence until written approval has been received.

Stage 3

After approval the moulding tools* are produced in-house guaranteeing the design matches perfectly with your expectations.  Initial samples of the product are made and sumbitted to you.  At this stage the colours can be tweaked to your requirement.

Once you have approved the samples your order will be processed**

Stage 5

Your order is dispatched to the jointly agreed time schedule.  IML account holders will receive an invoice (30 day nett account) following despatch of the goods.
