Product Development

Kellys Gang specialises in pad printing and foil stamping, helping businesses and organisations with their product development and promotional needs. Through providing a high standard of printing and excellent customer service, we can help ensure that your product smoothly and cost effectively meets the market with a stylish and customised stamping solution.


Project Development

Often when businesses develop new products, the last process they consider is the printing/product decorating. This can lead to complications that may require costly modifications later on, particularly in the case of Plastic Mouldings. At Kellys Gang we encourage our customers to consult with us at their product and tooling development stages. Successful printing can be assured by considering technical issues such as substrate type, texture, print process and position as part of the ongoing development process. For advice and assistance, talk to us about your product development at an early stage to ensure success. Confidentiality, of course is assured.



When submitting artwork for your printing project it is best to provide vector graphics as these file offer the best choice for quality reproduction. The main reason for this format is that as you enlarge a vector graphic, the edges of each object within the graphic stay smooth and clean and can be scaled from postage stamp to billboard size. The colours can also be easily manipulated and changed whilst also maintaining a comparably small file size. This makes vector graphics ideal for logos.

In contrast, Raster files are a collection of dots or pixels & can be problematic for reproducing sharp accurate professional quality images. As the file is blown up the resolution degrades. Colours are also difficult to manipulate & change.

If providing final art, please send vector files ( EPS, PDF or AI. files, text converted to curves/outlines/paths) in MAC or PC format to info@kellysgang.com.au

File Formats
Common raster image formats include BMP , TIFF, JPEG, GIF , PNG, and PSD. Raster files can in some cases be “traced” and converted to vector format.

Please send your files for assessment if you are not sure.
