Terrane Ltd (formally Terrane Promotions) is a small family run company, managed by Jane and Terry Rumble. The company was formed in 1986 in Cambridgeshire when Terry was still in the Royal Air Force at RAF Wyton, and Jane was a company secretary for a local company. Today, Terrane Ltd is located in the heart of Lincoln close to the A46 ring road, and operates from a modern purpose built factory, housing its Embroidery and Screen Printing production.

Design and Graphics

Terrane Ltd employs the latest WILCOM digitising software for the production and creation of Embroidery Designs, and uses modern BARUDAN and MELCO computer-controlled embroidery machines. Screen Printed designs are created using a combination of COREL DRAW and PAINT SHOP PRO software programmes. The company employs a full time graphic designer and an embroidery software writer and designer, as well as a full compliment of Embroidery Machinists, Screen Printers and Mug Decorators.


Customers initial designs are transformed into full-colour artwork for approval by the customer. Once the customer has given approval, the embroidery software is then digitised in house, and the design sampled on a single head embroidery machine. Once this sample has passed the QA checks, it is then sent to the customer for final approval. Then, and only then, is the order put into full production. In the case of Embroidered Badges, the finished badges are cut out and MERROW over-locked. In the case of Embroidered Garments, once the embroidery is completed the garments are inspected prior to re-packaging and dispatch to the customer. Embroidered Key Rings are finished with a MERROW edge and the Key Ring fitting attached. Terrane Ltd is proud to confirm that they use MADIERA colourfast embroidery and over-locking threads.

Screen Printing

As with the Embroidery process, the customers initial design is reproduced and sampled at full size in colour for customer approval. Once the customer is happy with the design and colour shades are chosen, then the colour separations are completed and the Screen Printed goods can be produced. The Screen Printing process is basically the same for Garments, Stickers or Coffee Mugs etc. Garments are printed using Colour-Fast SERICOL inks, on an eight colour carousel.. Stickers (Zaps) are produced on a flat bed, using weather resistant vinyl (both internal, external and clinger type) material, together with weather proof SERICOL inks. The stickers are then cut to the required shape.


Coffee Mug transfers are produced similar to Stickers, but use a special range of Ceramic Inks. The Coffee Mug is then hand-decorated with the transfer before being fired in an industrial kiln, ensuring a quality dishwasher-proof product. Terrane Ltd are Europe's leading manufacturers of personalised coffee mugs and, because all of the processes are carried out in-house, they are able to personalise individual coffee mugs with customers' own logos, whether it be a Military Crest, club designs etc. More importantly, they are able to apply individual names to the mugs using the same process. Terrane Ltd's hand decorated coffee mugs adorn the crew-rooms of virtually every Royal Air Force Unit and Squadron, every Royal Navy Ship and every Army Air Corps Squadron, and many many other military and civilian units worldwide.
