Should I design my own work?
Of course, feel free, it saves you money, but please be careful to understand and follow our specs for incoming files to assure the best results.
Can I email my printing files?
Of course, but be aware almost every computer has its own unique set of fonts. If our computers do not have your fonts they will substitute and there could be problems. Remember there is lots of software out there designed to let you create and print stuff. Most of it works poorly or not at all when trying to facilitate professionally printed products. Please check our specs page before submitting your work for printing.
Can you design us a business card?
Yes, but remember designers and printers both spend valuable time in this process. If you need us to design and print, expect to pay for both services.
How long does it take to get something printed?
If design is required, it usually takes 2-3 days to get a proof for you to scrutinize. You should assume there will be changes/corrections necessary and allow a day or two for that. Once the final proof has been approved the product is usually in your hands in 3-5 days. If you need it faster than that just ask and we will try and find a way.
How about 4-color printing?
We recommend you allow 5-7 days for the printing after the proof is okay’d. On short runs of 500 or less this can be done in as little as one day.
What are color separations?
Printing presses (unlike ink-jet printers) print one color at a time. So a job made up of multiple colors must be separated by color and rebuilt on the press one color at a time.
