Nothing is too much
trouble for us.
SIZE : Most sheets start off 1000mm x 700mm or 500mm x 700mm & we trim them from there to any size you need. We can trim to a variety of sizes within the same order so you can mix and match sheet sizes. Ask us about outsize options, we supply larger sheets (MOQ applies). Sheets are always trimmed after printing so 500 x 700mm ends up 480 x 680mm.
MOQ : The minimum order is 1000 standard 500mm x 700mm sheets.
GRADES : White 17gsm MF & Off White 18gsm MF are both Eco FSC options and are acid free which is essential for food contact and use with metals such as jewellery. We also have 17gsm MF black acid free tissue as standard. Other papers on stock include 21gsm, 30gsm and 40gsm MG which are softer and very popular for wrapping breakables. All papers can be flood covered with pantone ink to co-ordinate with your other packaging.
INKS : We can print 1 or 2 sides of the sheet. Flood coverage is possible
but not recommended for fabric items or porous materials as ink can rub off though safe for use with glass and non porous products. Ink is vegetable based and is non toxic. CMYK is charged as 4 colour so we ask for pantone U references and most clients keep to 1 or 2 shades to achieve better rates.
PROCESS : The print is produced by Litho Press (Heidelberg) so we can achieve very detailed designs and pantone matching without surcharging.
DESIGN : A step repeat or a registered layout, for example a poster design can be achieved easily. Logos work best when repeated at 3cm or 4cm sizes. We will show you the design and ask you to approve a PDF before it is printed so you can make sure you are happy.
ARTWORK : A PDF proof is automatically created for each order. If you require a wet proof (printed sample) we can offer this for £150+vat.
Artwork should be supplied as EPS or PDF on our template which we will email you, or we can supply the design for you using your print ready logo. We don’t usually charge for this as long as your logo is print ready.
DELIVERY : Orders take 4-6 weeks but deadlines are possible too.
