“Would I get a discount if I order in Bulk?”
It mostly depends on the quantity you define as bulk. To give you an idea: discount is given for business cards in quantities over 5000 units and for flyers in quantities over 20 000 units. We would love to help you with your bulk printing requirements – please e-mail through the specifications of what you are looking for and we can put together a custom print quote for you.
“Will it be cheaper if I only print in one colour?”
On all special print pricing it makes no difference if the print is 1 colour or full colour so you may as well take advantage an print in full colour!

“What format can I supply my artwork in?”

Please make sure that all fonts are converted to paths/curves and that all Jpeg files are CMYK and not RGB. We do check you artwork files for no charge, if you are unsure please just send us the files.
“What resolution should my artwork be?”
300dpi is the best resolution for print – we will check you artwork resolution for you and advise if it will print correctly.
“What is bleed?”
Bleed is needed in print files if any elements of the print go all the way to the edge of the paper – then a little extra ink is required so that when your job is cut it will be perfect. 3mm bleed is required on business cards where necessary and 5mm bleed on all other print jobs where necessary.
“What if my artwork is in Word, Excel or Publisher?”
This artwork would need to be converted into a print ready format – please send us the files and we can discuss options.
