Having such a huge brand name, featuring your work is an impressive item to sell in your design brand's product range. Printed with your unique artwork, you can appeal to a huge market and reach new audiences. Made from high polish chrome, it's a high quality product that carries the Zippo® lifetime guarantee on build quality.

How it's Made and Printed

Your designs are flat printed directly onto the brushed finish surface of the lighter case, fusing the inks deep into the material to create a permanent, fade resistant print. This produces a scratch resistant print which will stand up to normal wear and tear. The wick and a flint come included, and the actual lighter can be removed from the encasing to refill with lighter fluid and replace the flint. The custom lighters are presented in original gift boxes, seated in moulded enclosures to protect the surfaces from scratches. To clean your bespoke lighter, simply wipe with a dry cloth. Please bear in mind that white areas of your design will be unprinted. These will appear silver on the finished product.



Care Instructions

Please always take extra caution and care with open naked flames. For a full step-by-guide on how to fill your custom lighters and replace the flint, please visit our FAQ page and follow instructions to the letter. To extinguish the flame, simply snap shut the lid and the flame will automatically go out. This lighter is not to be used by minors. Keep out of reach of children. The Zippo® lighter is supplied without fuel, for safety. If your lighter gets dirty, clean only with a dry cloth.

Design Your Own Lighter Tips

Your designs are printed across the hinged lid opening, so please take this into account when positioning your images to ensure you're happy with where the lighter will flip open and distort your design. Of course, when the lid is shut, the finish is flawless and the lid opening can barely be seen.

Your custom lighters fall under the famous Zippo lifetime guarantee. The majority of the internal parts are consumables and can be replaced (examples include the flint, spring, wadding, and wick). The specialised printing can last and last as long as you care for your custom lighters correctly. Only put in your pocket if it won't be with keys or sharp objects. Do not let the lighter fluid splash onto the area you have designed. The printing is durable and will resist scratching, but it is possible to mark it if too much force or pressure is applied or if sharp objects are used.

Please note: Our semi-transparent inks will allow the brushed metal to show through. This means you can alter the light reflectivity of your product by angling the lighter and watching as your print becomes lighter and darker. The print covers the entire front and can bleed slightly on to the sides.

Frequently asked questions:

How do I fill my lighter?

Your Zippo® lighter comes unfilled due to safety, however a wick and flint are included. Please refer to Care Instructions above where you can find a link to our step-by-step guide with instructions and safety precautions.

Where is my design printed?

Your design is printed onto the front of the lighter (hinge left), including the body and the lid. Single sided printed slight border around the edge to stop bleeding around the curved corners.

Will my lighter scratch?

The Zippo® custom lighters are scratch resistant, not entirely scratch proof. They will stand up to normal wear and tear, being in pockets or handbags, but we would advise that you avoid scratching them with sharp objects.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

  • GSM ICON

    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding. If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
