Production times for Full Colour Printing on Non-Standard Materials

The following choices of turnaround times are available.

Express turnaround – this is our standard printing speed.

Express Plus turnaround – this is quicker than our standard printing speed, taking approximately half the time, consequently it is more expensive.

Economy turnaround – this is twice as long as our standard "Express Turnaround" printing speed and is therefore cheaper.

The number of working days required to produce your job varies depending on which material you have selected. The timing is shown under the Product Description at the foot of the page and also in the Shopping Basket and on your Order Confirmation

If you require extra finishing, the number of working days will increase by a day or two. The despatch time, including the time required for the extra finishing, will be updated accordingly.

For a day to be treated as the first working day, we require your printing order and payment along with print quality artwork before 10am. Alternatively, for an additional charge, you can delay the printing order, payment and print quality artwork cut-off time to 3.30pm.

Artwork and PDF requirements

  • We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your artwork as a Press Quality PDF. If you prefer, we can create a PDF for you, in which case we will email a proof to you for approval. There is an additional charge for this PDF creation service of £20 plus VAT.
  • If any print reaches the edge of your finished job, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
  • We need a "quiet area" to ensure nothing important is too near to the edge of the finished item; so please leave a 5mm inner margin for anything other than backgrounds
  • Supply files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
  • Image resolution should be 300dpi or more
  • Please embed fonts or convert all of your text to shapes

If you would like to download a PDF template you can do so from the Templates page which is also accessible via the top menu bar.
