Design and Graphics
Terrane Ltd employs the latest WILCOM digitising software for the production and
creation of Embroidery Designs, and uses modern BARUDAN and MELCO
computer-controlled embroidery machines. Screen Printed designs are created
using a combination of COREL DRAW and PAINT SHOP PRO software programmes. The
company employs a full time graphic designer and an embroidery software writer
and designer, as well as a full compliment of Embroidery Machinists, Screen
Printers and Mug Decorators.
Customers initial designs are transformed into full-colour artwork for approval
by the customer. Once the customer has given approval, the embroidery software
is then digitised in house, and the design sampled on a single head embroidery
machine. Once this sample has passed the QA checks, it is then sent to the
customer for final approval. Then, and only then, is the order put into full
production. In the case of Embroidered Badges, the finished badges are cut out
and MERROW over-locked. In the case of Embroidered Garments, once the embroidery
is completed the garments are inspected prior to re-packaging and dispatch to
the customer. Embroidered Key Rings are finished with a MERROW edge and the Key
Ring fitting attached. Terrane Ltd is proud to confirm that they use MADIERA
colourfast embroidery and over-locking threads.
As with the Embroidery process, the customers initial design is reproduced and
sampled at full size in colour for customer approval. Once the customer is happy
with the design and colour shades are chosen, then the colour separations are
completed and the Screen Printed goods can be produced. The Screen Printing
process is basically the same for Garments, Stickers or Coffee Mugs etc.
Garments are printed using Colour-Fast SERICOL inks, on an eight colour
carousel.. Stickers (Zaps) are produced on a flat bed, using weather resistant
vinyl (both internal, external and clinger type) material, together with weather
proof SERICOL inks. The stickers are then cut to the required shape.
Coffee Mug transfers are produced similar to Stickers, but use a special range
of Ceramic Inks. The Coffee Mug is then hand-decorated with the transfer before
being fired in an industrial kiln, ensuring a quality dishwasher-proof product.
Terrane Ltd are Europe's leading manufacturers of personalised coffee mugs and,
because all of the processes are carried out in-house, they are able to
personalise individual coffee mugs with customers' own logos, whether it be a
Military Crest, club designs etc. More importantly, they are able to apply
individual names to the mugs using the same process. Terrane Ltd's hand decorated
coffee mugs adorn the crew-rooms of virtually every Royal Air Force Unit and
Squadron, every Royal Navy Ship and every Army Air Corps Squadron, and many many
other military and civilian units worldwide.
