What is the difference between location and full-wrap imprints?

Posted July 18, 2012

Location imprints are printed in a specific location on the product being decorated. Full-wrap imprints, on the other hand, are those that wrap completely around the product.

All prices listed on InkHead are for a one-location imprint, unless otherwise specified. Multiple-location and full-wrap imprints are subject to additional charges; the Promotions Specialist working with you can provide further information should you have any questions, or you can call 800-554-0127 to find out more. 

Below, you will find virtual proofs for a one-location imprint, a two-location imprint, and a full-wrap imprint. Note how both location imprints are in a specific location on the drinkware, whereas the full-wrap imprint takes up the entire circumference of the mug.

When to Use Each Imprint Method

Single-Location Imprints are your basic imprint. All prices on InkHead, unless otherwise noted, are for single-location imprints. In most cases, single-location imprints are perfectly suitable for our customers’ needs. But if you really want to make a splash with your promotional product, think about customizing a product with a multiple-location imprint or a full-wrap imprint instead.

Multiple-Location Imprints allow you more space for your message and logo, but you may be subject to additional setup charges, depending on what’s required of our manufacturing partner. In these cases, the Promotions Specialist overseeing your order can provide additional information.

Full-Wrap Imprints are good when you want more than a logo. For instance, in the example above, the client has elected for a humorous message, the URL to the company website, as well as the company name and logo. The light-hearted tone of the mug, coupled with its striking red color, will ensure that recipients remember the company. Remember, however, full-wrap imprints cost more than single-location imprints.
