Thursday Thoughts


As part of our #ThursdayThoughts we wanted to address the misconception surrounding colour matching of HIPS and ABS. For example:

• It isn’t cost effective
• Minimum order quantities are too high
• It won’t be the same colour
• It will take too long
• It’s too much effort

At Stephen Webster Plastics, we colour match approximately 15-20 colours per month for our clients, whether it be to match a corporate branding, a specific Pantone or RAL reference, or purely to help our customers offer exactly the same colour as their competition.

With the minimum order quantity being 500kgs and a cost uplift of approximately 20% over our standard range of colours, it offers complete flexibility and uniqueness to our customer offering. Our colour matching is completely free and is offered as part of our Customer Experience Package – we want you to have the minimum amount of worry when placing an order with Stephen Webster Plastics. With an OTIF (On Time In Full) delivery performance of 98%, when we say that we’ll do something, you can rest assured that we will.

Once we receive a sample piece (or colour reference) from our customer, it can take only five working days to return a colour plaque to our customer for sign-off. Once accepted, deliveries are generally within 2-3 weeks. Due to the fact we send a colour plaque for sign-off, our customers can be assured that the colour requested is exactly what they require and therefore the most effort involved from our customer perspective, is posting a sample or emailing a colour reference!

Coloured PETG, Polycarbonate, PVC and ViPrint is also available so our products really are only limited by your imagination, and as we’ve experienced over the years, our customers really do have a lot of imagination!
