Design a Plate Corporate

Custom Manufactured Melamine Plates and Dinnerware.

Are you wanting to develop your own range of melamine plates or dinnerware? We will make the process easy.

Whether you are making dinnerware for a promotion, showbag fillers, catering or a funky wall feature! - we will look after your order from helping you get designs ready through to
making sure your order arrives safely to your door.

Durable, food safe, light weight, high grade melamine

We use only 100% top grade melamine which means that the dinnerware is food safe, won't easily chip, has a great quality 'feel.'

How it Works

All our dinnerware is custom made. You get to choose the shape and thickness and, the best part is, the dinnerware design will be uniquely your own art or logo.
We have molds for a range of cups, bowls, plates and platters – the options are truly endless, so the best way to get started is for you to email us with your wish list and we will reply to you with the options available. It also helps if you can supply an image of the type of goods you are looking for.

  • Get Started by Completing our Request a Quote Form

    Simply use our Request a Quote Form and provide an outline of what you want: Volume, size, shape, purpose.

  • Minimum Order Volume

    Typically the minimum order for custom manufacturing is 1000 units of the same shape and design.
    However, if your total volume is 1000 units, we can arrange for multiple designs / art – with a small set up cost for each new design.

  • Smaller volumes of a 25cm round plate

    Twice a year we are able to offer smaller orders of our most popular shape; 25cm round plate at 3mm thickness. We do this by grouping many orders into one large order. This option is limited to our 25cm round plate only. Please contact us or complete our request for a quote to express your interest in being added to this order.

  • Turnaround time

    The total turnaround time from when your order placed, approving your sample, manufacturing, shipping and customs clearance – can take 8 to 10 weeks. This time can be shortened with the option of paying for express freight.

  • Artwork

    We use a four colour process CMYK. At the time you confirm your order, we ask you to provide a hard copy of the end colour you are hoping for so that we can match colours as best as possible. Please be aware that colours differ between materials and process and a small variation needs to be accepted.

    For orders of 1000 units, we provide a true sample of your product for you to approve before the full volume is manufactured. This way, you know what you are getting!
