An initial cost will be not required if you send your logo file in Illustrator format.
If by laser, an additional cost will be less than the other methods like stamping and etching.
MOQ will be 30 sets.
You could mix different finishes to reach the 30 sets because the logo will be put by laser
on the completed products.

If you have a plan to brand your logo on the Gotoh products, please contact us right now!
We can arrange a meeting with you about the project at the Music China.
We are going to close our office form 15th to 18th September due to
an employee training.
Regarding your e-mails that are sent during this period,
we will reply to the e-mails on or after 19th September.
Sorry for causing you inconvenience.
