Printing 101

The print world has drastically changed in the last 5, 10, and 15+ years. Everything is digitally based, and the turn around times are much faster than they used to be.

Best Pricing

In today’s digitial print world, adding volume to your order doesn’t increase your price as dramaticallly as you would think. On a lot of products, ordering 2x as much quantity rarely equates into the same 2x the price, normally it’s just a fraction more to get the best value for your dollar.

We Can Help Setup Your Files

If you need artwork setup, we can help with that!  On many of our print products, if the setup time is farily minimal we don’t normally charge a setup for it; but, if you’d like multiple concept ideas, and want to go through an irrative process, well, that takes time and subsequently money. Talk to us upfront about what you’re looking for, and we’ll be happy to let you know if we need to charge a setup or not.

You Can Provide Your Own Files

If you want to provide your own files, just know we will need you to setup the artwork in accordance with our production standards.  Be sure to ask us for a template before proceeding.

  • All art must include full bleeds.
  • Fonts should be converted to curves.
  • Colour scheme set to CMYK.
  • Product depending, we will either require the artwork to be setup as:
    • (1) A single, multiple page PDF, or
    • (2) As many multiple, single page, PDF’s.
