Ordering and Artwork

  • Can you fix my artwork?

    Yes we do fix artwork. Our qualified in house graphic designer are able to amend your artwork. This keeps our staff cost which means you will be charged extra
  • How long will it take to print my job?

    Most daily runs such as 150gsm Gloss Artpaper & 350gsm Artboard we aim for 24 hours (Artwork must be print-ready file in PDF format). If you are ordering a standard product (excl. booklets), we aim for less than 4 working days, but we will let you know a turnaround estimate on job confirmation.
  • Why do I need to supply my 2 sided artwork as 1 PDF

    To avoid any delays! To use a business card as an example; our software imposes page 1 as the front and page 2 as the back. If the files are supplied separately our prepress staff need to manually combine the files. This adds time and creates an opportunity for error. When files are supplied incorrectly, our prepress staff will send you an email asking for files to be adjusted.
  • How do I supply artwork for booklets?

    Booklet artwork needs to be supplied as single page spreads (eg: a 24pp book needs to be supplied as a 24 page pdf ). Pages must be in sequential order.
  • Can I order a larger quantity or an item not listed on your website?

    Please contact us to discuss what you need. Our one of the staff will talk to you directly.

Our Process

  • Lead Times

    Although we normally print our product around 24 hours, please allow a 2-3 working day lead time for the completion of printing. This lead time only commences after we have received artwork that conforms to our Artwork Requirements. We cannot be held responsible for delays in lead times resulting from failure to supply artwork that meets these requirements. For orders of more than 5 units or multiple kinds of artwork files,  lead times may vary and will be advised by a customer service person.
  • Printing Artwork

    PRINT READY ARTWORK MUST BE SUPPLIED or choose the "Check My Files and Make Press-Ready (+$15.00)" to allow us to check your file. To ensure the fastest lead times, please review the Artwork Requirements for the product you order. If your job is colour critical, please provide a physical print sample with PMS colours noted. All prices are based on single artwork images. The printing of different artwork layouts for bulk orders may incur an extra cost. Print products are a non-returnable item.
  • Digital Graphic Proof

    After receiving your Artwork file and once approved by our art department we will send you a Digital Proof within 24 hours. Printing will not begin until we receive approval of the Digital Proof and then the 3 Day [Business Days] completion lead time will begin. We cannot be held responsible for delays in lead times due to failure of responding to approval proof. If you require a physical proof, this will incur a $40 (exc GST) proofing fee and push lead time to 5 - 7 days.
