Bryan China Company Presents
Custom Dinnerware Details
Let us "upscale" your tabletop by firing your logo onto your chinaware.
Bryan China Company has a quarter century of experience in providing custom decorated
chinaware to private clubs, single and multi-unit restaurants, corporate dining rooms,
banquet facilities, universities, aircraft, private yachts,
naval vessels, and even private residences. Here's what's involved:
Using a silk screen process, we reproduce your logo in
ceramic color and
hand-apply it to the ware. The china is then fired it at temperatures approaching 1500
degrees during which the glaze of the ware softens and the image fuses with the glaze. The
fired image is extremely durable and will last years under normal conditions.
Here's pricing information for a logo/design (3"
square or less) that doesn't require gold bearing colors. (Gold bearing
colors include pink, cobalt blue, purple and must be quoted separately.
Images larger than 3"x3" must be also quoted separately.)
One Time Make Ready Charge
Our minimum order quantity is 144 pcs. If you only
want 72, the price is still for 144. Accordingly, the dollar minimum is
Our "Make Ready Charge" includes normal art department time required for
redrawing, creation, and output. If your project requires other than normal
time, we'll inform you of this and quote separately.
To the above, you add the cost of the dinnerware as per our site. You should
order in case quantities.
99% of logos are placed on the rim of the plate, at the 12:00 location..
Service plates that are displayed on the tabletop and then replaced with a food bearing
plate, typically would be decorated in the well of the plate. Sometimes the logo shape
better fits another area of the rim. No problem. We can mock-up alternate presentations so
that you can make the best choice to fit your decor.
You should make absolutely sure that you own or have written permission to
reproduce the art. If we have any question at all, we may require written
For food bearing surfaces, the FDA requires the use of low lead or lead
free colors. If you're in California, Prop 65 effectively requires the use
of lead free
colors. Lead free colors limit the range of color intensity in reproducing your image. For
example, there is no bright red unleaded color. Reds tend to be muted and lean toward the
rust color range. There are colors that can't be attained with low lead or lead free
ceramic color. Click to see a photo of the unleaded color
For mugs and cups, we do not decorate in the lip and rim area, which is defined by the FDA
as the top 20mm of the vessel.
Providing us with PMC (Pantone Matching
Color) references is very helpful. While we can't guarantee an exact color
match (no ceramic company can,) we can certainly get within industry standard
acceptability. We're confident you'll be pleased.
You can incorporate either 23k gold or platinum in your logo. Be aware,
however, that unlike ceramic color, precious metals sit on top of the glaze vs. sinking
in. Accordingly, precious metals are more subject to wear by physical abrasion and
Color or Precious Metal Bands
We can compliment your logo with the
application of color or precious metals bands around the outside edge of
each plate. We can also apply a verge line as well. The verge is the inner
part of a rim plate, where the rim and well meet. Precious metals can be 23k
bright or burnish gold, as well as bright or burnish platinum. Burnish
metals have a "matt" vs. shiny appearance. For purposes of
estimating... an average of $1.15 per item with should be used. The actual
price depends on the actual size of the item to be lined.
Subject to seasonal workloads, it generally takes 2-3 weeks for

entire process. If you need faster service, please call for a "real time"
