Can I choose any size and shape I want for my money clip?

The standard sizes are 50 by 20 mm, 60 by 20 mm, and 70 by 20 mm. All of these standard sizes are only available in a rectangular shape, with polished rounded corners.

If you require a unique size or shape outside of these listed standards, then we’re happy to oblige — for a small upcharge. The available measurements for money clips range from 30mm to 70mm in length, and from 10 mm to 30mm in width.

Special border shapes can be accomplished within reason. For no single money clips design should there be allowed a variance in length of more than 10 mm or a variance in length or width. Also, due to structural and functional requirements, your custom shaped money clip must be solid in nature, with no “hollowed” or “die cut centers”.

What is the difference between brass, stainless iron, and stainless steel metal materials?

In summary, brass is the strongest metal of the three. But this choice has implications for your design. If you choose stainless steel or stainless iron as your metal material, your metal-surface of your money clip must be silver-ish or nickel-like in appearance. However, brass material can be plated with a metallic finish of your choice, or undergoe an anodization process for a unique black color. No matter which metal material you choose, most main design styles (engraving, die-struck, soft enamel, and offset printing) can be achieved.

But to explain in more detail, brass is the strongest and most durable of the three metals, and stainless steel and stainless iron process approximately the same strength and durability. Likewise, Copper is the most expensive option we offer, stainless steel falls in the middle price range, and stainless iron is the most affordable.

The natural hue of both stainless steel and stainless iron shows a silver-ish or nickel-like appearance. These two metal types are not suitable for metal plating or anodization. The only available color/texture-related special option is to add a “brushed” look to your stainless steel or stainless iron surface.

In contrast, the surface of brass material money clips must be treated in one of two ways, in order to maintain a long-term finished look. Most commonly, brass will be galvanized (or plated) with with one of our many popular metallic finishes (20+ color choices). The other (newer) method is called anodization, which rather than “plating” your metal surface with a coated finish, actually permanently transforms the outer surface of the brass into a black color permanently.

Money clips of all three metal types can be manufactured with laser engraved designs, die struck designs, soft enamel colors. But anodized brass money clips cannot receive hard enamel or other galvanized plating options.

For laser engraving, what is the smallest and largest design or text that I can put onto my money clip?

One notable advantage of laser engraving (versus die struck and enamel styles) is that your design can cover the entire surface of your money clip all the way to the edge, as long as it is a flat surface (not around the U-shaped clip curve or the angled lip of the “clip side”). The minimum design line width is 0.25 mm, with a minimum letter height of 1.0 mm for legible text.

Which side is the “front” of my money clip?

Actually that’s up to you! Since you can incorporate a design on the outer surface area of both sides of your money clip, you essentially decide which is the “front” and which is the “back”. When speaking with your Creative Specialist, to tend to keep communication clear, by referring to the longer flat side as the “flat side”, and referring to the shorter side with an angled lip as the “clip side”.

I have a favorite photograph. Can you use it in my design?

Certainly. Markers can use an offset printing method appropriate for photographs. In order to prevent fuzzy or unclear prints, we strongly recommend the photograph or artwork be a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, AI or PSD file above 300 DPI.

For other colourful designs, our design team can provide complimentary assistance in digitizing/vectorizing these images. Occasionally this process will add to your turnaround time.

Can I get a digital copy of the design?

Yes. After every free design consultation, we will send you a clear digital copy of the design. If it’s not perfect, let us know and we won’t rest until it is. When you’re happy with it, we’ll send your approved design to the factory for production.

Designs will be sent 1 to 2 business days after your payment is confirmed. Designs can also be sent before payment, when requested.

Can I make any shape I want?

You most certainly can.

Can I make any shape I want?

Our collection lines are more versatile than you’d expect — just ask your creative specialist and you might be surprised at what we can do.

Are there limitations to the number of colors I can have?

Not at all. We can do an unlimited amount of colors but for every nine colors of thread your product cost and speed are doubled. For most of our customers’ designs, though, nine colors is more than enough. You might also be interested in a printed patch if you’re really wanting something exceptionally colorful.

What is “offsetting?”

Offsetting is a technique in design where an image appears to have a shadow by duplicating the image and placing it behind the design and off to the side at an angle.

Can I do different colors of the same item and still get the order for the same price?

Most often, yes. It depends on what the colors and styles you’d like to switch out are — but your creative specialist will always configure order in the most economical way possible.

How many colors can my design have?

Screen printed apron designs can receive a maximum 10 colors for traditional spot screen printing (solid colors only, no gradients).

Embroidery can accommodate up to nine colors per location, but we advise no more than five for clarity’s sake.

Both screen printing and embroidery can be applied to a single apron. Simple but brilliant, like chocolate-dipped bacon.

Full-color printing is the only option that allows for unlimited colors and color gradients. Dye sublimation full-color printing is available at low quantities in only one style/SKU, but we offer cut and sew aprons, too — although generally requiring higher quantities before they become an economical choice with the highest level of customization.

Can I get screenprinting or heat transfers on my beanies?

No. The reason we don’t allow this option is that screenprinting or heat-transfers on knit fabric looks terrible the moment you start to wear it, cracking as the fabric underneath it moves and stretches. The designs you here are either patches that can move and stretch along with the fabric or designs actually knit into the fabric. It’s indeed possible, as some of our competitors will say – but you won’t want to wear it more than once.

Can I submit finished artwork?

Absolutely! While we have a team of world-class designers who can create incredible images from scratch, we know we also have incredibly creative customers. If you don’t need design help, you can submit completed artwork files to be prepped for production.

What if I’m not happy with the design?

We are happy to make as many edits as necessary to make your design perfect.. You’ll be able to communicate with our team throughout the process via a dedicated customer dashboard that lets you make note directly on your design. Please note that a prolonged editing process will add time to your overall production timeline, so clear descriptions are a must for minimizing the number of edits required. You can even upload images or sketches to help show us your idea.

What do I need to submit to get my order started?

You’ll need to fill out the quote form above so we get the general details of your order. You can also submit artwork, sketches, reference images, et cetera, so we get a better idea of your vision. If there’s any additional information we need, your representative will reach out to you.

What kind of mockups can I expect?

You’ll receive a digital mockup once your design has been created by our team. After you approve your mockup, we’ll produce a physical sample of the ITEM and send you images from the factory. Additionally, you can request to receive a physical sample in the mail – note that this will add time to your overall production timeline as well as a shipping fee.

General+
How long does the ordering process take?

Each order’s turnaround time depends on your design and its complexity. During the design and manufacturing processes, your representative will be able to provide you with delivery and shipment estimates — you’ll also receive email updates as your order makes it way through our system.

We’re often capable of meeting tight deadlines if we know about them as soon as possible. If you have a specific deadline, please tell your representative right away so we can work with you to beat it.

Do you have more customization options that aren’t listed here?

Yes, we do. Through our vast network of factories, we have access to literally hundreds of special options. Tell your representative what you’re envisioning and they’ll be happy to suggest options that suit your design.

Pricing+
I found a company with a lower price for money clips. Will you match or beat competitor prices?

Sorry, we don’t match competitor prices, but for a good reason. Most companies only offer pre-made money clips with your logo engraved or imprinted onto the surface, and call it “custom”. But your specific design, material specifications, and special options are all central to way your money clips are made at The/Studio.

We provide an end-to-end solution that starts with free professional design services, and ends in polished full production of your money clips, fashioning raw materials into your one-of-a-kind masterpiece. We call it “manufacturing made easy”. We provide a more complete service package and a superior finished product, so we are unable to honor price matches from other businesses.

How do you price your money clips?

We put a lot of thought into our prices. Some of the more important variables are quantity, stylistic add-ons, size and “surface area” of the modifications  — i.e.,  how much printing or other graphically-related work does the project require? There may also be a mold fee for your money clip. The person most equipped to give you a price for your product is your sale representative or our useful Create Your Product tool — both can give you a detailed analysis of your quote and what things featured into our per-item price.

Product usage+
How many dollar bills (or bank cards) can your money clips hold?

Even at the smallest standard size (50 by 20 mm), it is easy to slide up to 25 folded U.S. dollar bills into your money clip (or 5 credit cards). Your cash will be held in place safely and securely within this count.

Production+
What are the dimensions of your money clips in standard 50 mm, 60 mm, and 70 mm sizes? What about front versus back?

All standard sizes (50 by 20 mm, 60 by 20 mm, and 70 by 20 mm) come in a rectangular shape, with polished rounded corners. The back of the each standard sized money clip extends approximately 80% to 90% of the full length of the front, making it convenient to slide folded bills into the clip from the back side.

From a side-view, the width of the your money clips varies slightly based on the size you, choose most fall into the 6 to 8 mm range, perfect for holding up to 25 folded monetary bills or 5 credit cards.

Do you have a minimum order quantity for money clips

No, we don’t. If you’re looking for a no-minimum money clip producer, we’re one of the few folks who do that. Still, we recommend that if you’re going the through trouble to order one, you might as well have a dozen or more made — your sales representative would be happy to show how the per-price unit goes down tremendously after even ten items. That’s because we spread the cost of your unique custom money clip set-up across however many that you order.

That said, if you want something that’s truly one of a kind, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be happy to make a limited edition run of just one.

Sales and Customer Service+
What happens when I request a quote?

We get back to you within twenty-four hours and usually much faster with a quote for your order and the email address of your personal assistant for any questions you might have. Your project could be under way within a day.

What should I know before placing an order with your company?

Sometimes we work with customers who have an exact idea of what they want; others have only begun the creative process. You don’t need to know “anything” before you work with us; we help you through the creative process and production process to whatever extent you need. That’s our job.

We’d also love you to know that, working with us, you’re working with a company that handles products for global fashion brands — and in fact, there’s a good chance you might have run into one of our goods and not known it. Check us out and send us an email or a quote request — you’ll find that we’re upfront, informative and excited about any creative projects.
