Full Colour Document Printing

This product is for printing loose pages in full colour. The price is based on how many pages are in a document that you would like to print. For example, if you had a 30-page document that you wanted 2 copies of, the number of pages you would enter is 60. Our un-bound document printing service is excellent as it allows you to print a number of different documents under many different circumstances.

As they are provided in single sheets with no binding, they are particularly useful in circumstances where the printing information may change. Therefore, rather than reprinting an entire document, you can simply reprint individual pages, saving you money.

We offer A4 or A5 sized document printing, with a range of stocks to choose from. There are no binding or lamination options, other than 2-hole drilling, 4-hole drilling, and stapling in the top left corner. You can choose to have your pages printed and left untouched so all we do is trim them to size!

The quantity refers to the number of pages, so be sure to input the total number of pages you need to be printed across all of your documents.
The quantity refers to how many pages you require printing, not how many documents you have to print.

If you have 1x 30-page document to print, then the quantity would be 30.

If you have 3x 25-page document to print, then the quantity would be 75.

All fonts and pictures used in your artwork need to be supplied to us in a separate folder using the "package" function under the "file" menu. Zip your files and folders before uploading or sending to us via e-mail. Please also include a PDF. We can then use the PDF to make sure that nothing is missing or moved.

Artwork Bleed

  • Please supply 3mm bleed around your artwork.
  • Please ensure that the colour is set to CMYK, not RGB.
  • Please provide crop marks around all your supplied artwork.

Microsoft Office Files

We cannot print straight from the following programmes. However, we can save a PDF file and re-send back to you for proofing.
  • Word
  • Excel
  • Publisher
  • PowerPoint
You can save your Microsoft Office files as a PDF yourself if you would prefer. That way you can see exactly what the printed file will look like.

Please note: It is important when supplying a PDF from a Microsoft Office application, that extra care is taken to ensure any spot colours are created correctly in your original document/file.

Please supply a screenshot of your Microsoft Office file before conversion. You can do this by following the instruction below for both Mac and PC.

Mac: Press 'Command' + 'Shift' + 3 for a full screenshot, or 'Command' + 'Shift' + 4 to select an area to screenshot. This will save a PNG file to your desktop.

PC: There is a key on your keyboard that says 'Print Screen'. You can then paste this into a document or email to send over.
