How long will it take for you to finish my order?Every job is different which means that some jobs may be finished in a few minutes while others can take up to several days. If you have a deadline, please let us know and we will give you an estimate or a confirmation if it can be done.
If I am submitting a document, what file format should it be in?PDF, known as The Portable Document Format, is the preferred format for submitting a document for printing. That is because it works with most computers, as well as professional printing devices. In addition to PDF, most Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Microsoft Word files can be easily converted to a PDF.
Will my order look exactly like what it does on the screen?Although most things do look almost identical to the screen as they are printed, sometimes there can be a few differences. This might be in color or spacing, but you can avoid this by adjusting your monitor to the settings recommended by your manufacturer.
What is a proof?Your proof is a copy of your printed document. This is used for inspection and to make sure that the layout and colors are exactly what you have hoped. We will make a proof before officially sending your item to the press. This proof may be a hardcopy or digital.
What are the different grades of paper?
- Bond: Used for letterhead, business forms, and copying.
- Text: High-quality paper with a lot of texture.
- Uncoated Book: Used mainly for offset printing.
- Coated Book: Glossy finish with vivid colors and incredible reproduction. Also known as “photo paper”.
- Cover: Used for business cards, postcards, and book covers.
Is there a difference between coated and uncoated stock paper?Yes, uncoated stock paper is porous and inexpensive. It is usually used to print newspapers or black-and-white copies. Coated stock is quite the opposite. It is made of high-quality paper, has a smooth and glossy finish, and looks great for photos. It is always more expensive.
What is halftone printing?Halftone printing is when you take a continuous tone image (such as one that has solid areas of black or color) and bring it into a pattern of different size dots. These dots simulate a continuous tone. Although you can see small dots spaced slightly apart if you look closely, from a normal viewing range you cannot.
What are Pantone colors?Pantone colors refer to the Pantone Matching System (PMS). This color-matching system was designed to identify each color with a specific number or name. It helps to make colors turn out exactly the same from system to system.
Can you print white?Typically, you do not print white if you are printing on white paper. Instead, white paper fills in those holes. If you are using any other type of colored paper then you can use white to print.
