Given the individual nature of much printing work we usually give a quote specific to each job. Please note that these guide prices are for printing only, from customer-supplied artwork on our standard range of papers and cards. Alternative stocks may result in higher/lower prices being charged. The appropriate charge will be added for any design work / finishing required. VAT will be added, where applicable.

- Files should be supplied in PDF format where possible. Resolution up to 2400 dpi/200 lpi.
- Other formats, eg Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Publisher or Word usually acceptable, also JPEG & TIF files, of suitable resolution. Contact us to confirm suitability.
- 3 mm bleed required, where artwork is to print to sheet edge.
Some jobs may require specialist finishing, eg: laminating, creasing, numbering, drilling, padding, setting, perforating etc. The appropriate charge will be shown separately in your quote.
We will print using either digital or litho methods, as appropriate to your job.
Digital printing is usually ideal for short run printing. It gives superb, and highly cost-effective results, especially with full-colour printing. Black-only digital printing is substantially cheaper. Attractive results can be obtained by printing on to coloured paper. Please note that:
- Prices shown in this leaflet are for guidance purposes only. In some circumstances eg printing on specialist papers different prices may be charged. You will always be given a quote before printing
- Digital colour work is printed out of CMYK process colours. Most Pantone colours are accurately reproduced by this method. A close approximation may be obtained for other colours. Please ask for a sample print if this might be a problem.
- Digital printing may not be suitable for sheets that will subsequently be used through a printer / photocopier. Please ask for a test print.
- Problems caused by incorrect customer files may be charged extra.
- V.A.T. will be charged where appropriate: eg on stationery items.
Litho printing is best for longer run printing. In addition to single or full-colour printing it also gives the cost-effective option of spot colour work, eg using only red and black inks. A quote will be given specifically for each litho job.
