FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ'S)

Here are some of the questions that get asked most commonly, please check here before enquiring.

What is your preferred file type for printing?
Our preferred file type is pdf. This stands for 'portable document format' and is the most reliable printing format (in our opinion!). Most programs can export documents into a pdf format.

 

What is a bleed?
A 'bleed' is a printers best friend! Bleed is an area outside of the usual print area, which allows a printer to cut out an item of print and leave a clean edge. We ask for a 3mm bleed on any file with artwork which touches the edge of the print. For more information, see our Bleed tutorial.

Unfortunatly we do not sell plain paper. We buy our paper on a job-by-job basis, so we cannot sell anything we stock.
