You can get a quote by calling or emailing us. You can also use our request quote buttons once you have decided which sizes and finishes you would like and state those in the request.

Our turnaround times vary from product to product. We have same day services available, but most standard coated prints and signs take 3 business days. The more complex the job the longer it will take (Matte/Gloss Lamination/Foil Stamping etc.)

If you are sending in your own design, we do require you send us either high resolution .PDF’s or .TIFF files for large format signs. Please ensure you follow standard printing bleed guidelines you can click HERE to get more information on these guidelines.

In short, please keep a .25” bleed around, and a safe zone for text inside 0.125” of the cut-line.
Please do not include any bleed, crop, or registration marks in the file.

The Resolution of all images in your designs should be no less than 300DPI.

It is wise to stay away from images through Google, as these may be subjected to copyrights and are usually also very low quality for printing purposes.

Points (or pt for short) is a unit of measure. Points are common units of measure for:

  •         Thickness of a stock
  •         Line-weight
  •         Font size

In regards to paper stock, we use points to measure the thickness of card stock. Our most popular cards start at thick 14pt. Most common cards produced by other printers are 12pt. We can produce cards of up to 48pt!

Ultra Violet (UV)

This coating is cured by exposing the solution to ultra violet lights to quickly dry and stiffen the coating. UV coatings provide excellent high-gloss finishes but are not suggested for materials that require folding or scoring due to the hardness and coatings ability to crack when bent.

Aqueous Coating (AQ)

This coating is a clear, fast-drying water-based coating that is used to protect, and increase the life of printed products. These coatings are available in both high-gloss and matte finishes that provide an excellent look and touch to your printed pieces.

Monitors and Printers produce colours very differently.

Monitors process colour in the RGB (Red Green Blue) model, which harnesses a wider spectrum of colours.

Printers process colour in the CMYK (Cyan Magenta Yellow Black) model, which reproduces almost all of the colours in the RGB model, with a few exceptions.
Please ensure when you are designing pieces for printing, you use a CMYK colour pallet and profile.

We accept most major credit cards (excluding American Express), we also accept checks, money orders, and e-transfers.

We do require a 50% deposit before processing any orders.

In terms of checks, we require checks to be sent in before we begin process on your work.
