SUPPLYING PRINTING AND STATIONERY SINCE 1971

Printing Costs

We specialise in printing bespoke stationery tailored to the client’s needs. Therefore the majority of jobs are quoted individually not just from a price list.

Ink Colours

We mainly print in full colour (CMYK), but you can also choose special mix colours from many hundreds in our pantone guide.This includes metallic and fluorescent colours (for better results these inks work best on silk or gloss stocks, available on spot colour litho printing only).

Proofing

We proof all orders requiring setting or artwork, with our digital colour proofing system, or via pdf on email. While not 100% accurate for colour it’s very close and proofing is the last chance to spot that illusive mistake or wrong colour. Any price quoted includes three sets of proofs allowing for minor changes.

Artwork/Setting

We do not include artwork charges with the majority of our printing costs as from experience we know that artwork can take from half an hour for a simple layout to days for a full design scheme, so we quote artwork charges on sight of copy or on discussion and agreement of charge before any work proceeds. This way nobody gets any shocks.
