Product Description

In the proverbial nutshell, select the relevant settings for your desired Strat then either upload your own pic or choose one from our library, fiddle till you’re happy and hit the ADD TO CART button to place your order; follow the subsequent prompts to pay via PayPal, credit or debit card and we’ll do all the rest, including Emailing you a template and visual within a couple of days for you to approve to ensure all looks and fits as you’re expecting – so please keep an eye out for this Email as we won’t proceed with your order until we receive your approval. Yep, we mean it! Once approved we’d expect to have your finished plate winging its way to you in around a week, but will always confirm once it’s en-route. Done.

SHALL WE PLAY IT SAFE & WALK THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS EH . . .

COLOUR CHOICES IN THE ON-LINE DESIGNER

These options DON’T affect your plate in any way, they’re simply here as a guide to help you visualise how your new plate will look in-situ. Cool eh?

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

These options DO affect your plate in every way, as they determine your exact configuration – so please do pay attention & select exactly what you require, as that’s what we’ll work to. Additionally, to ensure we’re all working together please include a message in the ‘Notes’ field (which is underneath the ‘Delivery Address’ field in the shopping cart) confirming exactly what configuration you require including the make/model of all pickups (as they do vary in size & mount hole positioning) if you’re changing from stock and we’ll tally all up & ping over a template matching your configuration to double-check we’ve got all correct.

MODEL = THE PARTICULAR FLAVOUR OF YOUR STRAT

Strats vary mahoosively – even the big boys seem to vary their plate shapes depending upon which way the wind blows – so it’s vital we know your exact flavour and in an effort to make life as easy as possible we’ve listed the major brands and country of manufacture in the options along with a couple of wild cards – so just choose the closest option possible, although every little helps so please do let us know as much as you can about your particular one – such as the year of manufacture and if yours is a special edition or particular model – by including a message in the ‘Notes’ field (which is underneath the ‘Delivery Address’ field in the shopping cart) confirming exactly what flavour you have to help us get it right first time.

Now, if you don’t know who made your Strat or it’s unlisted on the website worry not, as we can cut plates to any shape – HOORAH!

UNLISTED
Simply let us know what make/model you have in the Notes field – as we may have a template on file – but if we don’t we’ll ask for a scan of your original or pop it in the post to us. 

If you’re scanning then simply scan your original plate as a hi-res 300dpi colour/greyscale photograph with the BACK of the plate touching the glass please – don’t worry, we’ll digitally flip the image – along with a contrasting coloured background so we can clearly see all the plate edges – save it as a JPEG & Email to us at: hello@gig.ink – a couple of ££ well spent is to take your original plate to a local copy shop to scan if you don’t have access to a scanner yourself – or even pop the original plate in the post to us, which of course we’ll return with your new plate.

I DON’T KNOW
If you don’t know what make of Strat you have then instead of testing eleventy-twelve gazillion existing templates it’s generally easiest to Email over a scan of your original plate or pop it in the post.

CHOOSING YOUR IMAGE 

After selecting the options mentioned above, simply upload your own image or choose from our library, add to cart and follow the subsequent prompts to pay via PayPal, credit or debit card and we’ll do all the rest, including Emailing you within a couple of days with a template and visual for you to approve to ensure all looks and fits as you’re expecting – so please keep an eye out for this Email as we won’t proceed with your order until we receive your approval.

As mentioned in full on the website, our plates are effectively single-ply & essentially the beauty is that you can have an image on them, from subtle to in-yer-face – although plain CMYK printed colours are no problem at all – plus they’re laser cut so feature straight edges, so we’re unable to provide true pearloid, celluloid, metallic or multi-ply plates – so please see our image library on the website or visit HERE to see a cornucopia of in-situ plate pics to get the feel for how they look.

All our plate prices include Signed For Royal Mail delivery directly to your UK door – if you’re abroad then fully insured and tracked worldwide shipping can be selected in the cart for £12.99 once you’ve placed your order – and come complete with brand spanking new mount screws, but if you don’t need them save yourself a couple of quid by using the voucher code ‘SCREW-YOU’ in the cart when you finalise your order 😉

Now, the important bit: STRATS VARY HUGELY and of course we both want your plate to be perfect, so please note that this pwiddy picture is a visual representation of a generic model, so the screw mount holes *may* be in slightly different positions on your finished plate to align with the original – so to ensure 100% happiness we ALWAYS Email a hi-res PDF visual & template for you to double-check all looks and fits exactly as it should before proceeding to production – so please ensure you check your Emails regularly and confirm your approval!


IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE, SIMPLY DROP US A LINE AND WE’LL RUN THROUGH EVERYTHING WITH YOU – LIFE’S TOO SHORT NOT TO SCRATCH-IT!
