Can I have a sample made of the product I'm interested in?
Before you go down the route of having a physical sample made please consider the alternative which can save a lot of time. We can send you samples of other products we have manufactured for our other customers, we can even send you the artwork proof used to make the product. Remember you will receive your own artwork proof with unlimited revisions once you place an order with Aspinline, we will make sure everything is 100% correct before we go to production.
We can of course make samples of your prospective item if you or your client require it. This is at a charge and would be deductible from a full order. The lead time for sample creation can be the same as the lead time for a full production so please bear this in mind.
What are your minimum orders?
Please head over to the Resource Centre.
What are the delivery times on your products?
Lead times are stated on individual product pages. These times can vary between products but on average production for custom items is 2-3 weeks. We also offer a RUSH* service on certain items, please find our RUSH enquiry form here.
*Aspinline makes every effort to delivery RUSH goods originating from our overseas factory (RUSH goods being goods delivered faster than standard estimated lead times) on the requested in-hands date. Aspinline shall not be liable for any delay in delivery of goods that is caused by a force majeure event.
Do you 100% guarantee delivery dates?
You will be sent an estimated delivery date that we try our very best to treat as guaranteed, but there are certain circumstances that are out of our control such as weather. We will do our very best to deliver as predicted and the majority of the time we do, but we cannot 100% guarantee the date. So please allow time at your end just in-case :)
What is a repeat order discount?
At Aspinline, we really appreciate and value our loyal customers. So, for every repeat order you make for either pin badges or patches, we will apply a discount straight away :)
The repeat order discount applies if the design is exactly the same as previously ordered. We can change colours, as long as the main design and size remains the same.
Do your prices include VAT?
All the prices on our website are exclusive of VAT. On each product page there is an updating price summary box that gives you the total cost of your order, including VAT.
Where are you based?
Aspinline is based in Bristol, UK.
How long does it take to produce artwork for approval?
Artwork can take up to 2 business days to complete depending on its complexity. Once completed it will be sent to you as a PDF, JPEG or PNG.
What are your payment terms?
If you haven't ordered on-line and have been sent an invoice, payment will be due in full upon approval of artwork. Please contact us for more information.
How do I pay an invoice?
We accept several different methods of payment:
Credit/Debit Card - Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro, Cirrus, Switch and Solo. - You can either pay on-line or just give us a call on 0117 313 5243.
Cheque - made payable to Aspinline Ltd.

My order was sent direct and I have received VAT/Duty charges, what should I do?
Occasionally we may have to deliver directly to you from our overseas production facility so we can meet a date for your event. If this is the case you may be sent an invoice from either FedEx or UPS for duty or VAT. If this happens please forward the invoice onto us and we will pay. Either scan or take a photo of the invoice and email to [email protected] or send it in the post to:
Hayward Industrial Estate
1-2 North View
Can I see a mock-up of my design before I go ahead with an order?
We only create artwork once you have completed your order online or if you have accepted a quote. You have unlimited revisions and we won't go to production until you have approved. This is for two reasons:
- So we have a point of reference on our system for the various departments.
- FREE artwork creation is a service we offer as part of our package. Unfortunately we cannot offer FREE artwork creation for enquiries, it would just drain our resources.
Worse case scenario (and we hope this would never happen) if you really disliked the artwork we created for you after unlimited revisions, you could just cancel with no obligation to proceed.
