Ordering from Prestige Printers
The easiest choice is to drop into our shop at 106 Church Street, Swinton or give us a call on 01709 580100 and we can guide your choices.
We focus on providing a personal service paying attention to your detailed needs and preferences in order to give you the best advice and deliver the exact product you need.
We can do that face to face, by phone or by email.
This page is intended to help you understand the basics of specifying a print job. Some of the same considerations may apply to social printing and garment design. You don't need to prepare in this level of detail, these notes are just to help you understand the process. We provide as much help as you want.
Prepare the text content
Don't just dash something off. Think about what you need to say and use language that will be meaningful to your target audience. Write about the benefits of your services and products. Include a link to your web site where you'll have room to go into more detail. Do take care over spelling and grammar, get some other people to read what you've written and encourage them to find fault. Include a specific "call to action" like "Call us now for a free estimate".
Rough out the layout
Just a very basic sketch of where headings, pictures and text-blocks need to be.
By using the above information Prestige Printers will design artwork for your stationery at a very competitive one-off cost. A proof will always be provided for your approval before printing. We will never print your stationery until you are fully satisfied with the design.
Alternatively you can prepare your own print ready artwork if preferred
If you are going to provide your own design please read our guidance notes below. We may not spot an error in your artwork and cannot be held responsible for errors if we have printed exactly as provided. If we do notice any problems we will contact you but this will delay printing.
We can accept your own artwork in many digital formats but prefer it to be supplied as a PDF file with fonts embedded and/or converted to curves plus all colours saved as CMYK. By doing this, any re-flow of your design or font substitution will be avoided when we open your file on our system.
You can provide your file by email (Files sent by email should be under 10mb). CD/DVD disc or USB Drive.
It is your responsibility to ensure none of your artwork infringes any third party trademark or copyright.
For picture images, the higher the quality (dpi - dots per inch or resolution) the better they will print. Images should be scanned at 300dpi or more.
Images from websites tend to be of low quality because they are created to load fast for online use. These may not print well.
What is bleed?
Any printed image that is to be run to the cut edge of the product must bleed over that edge by 3mm to enable accurate trimming.
Your document size must be the finished size plus bleed if necessary.
- Business Card 85mm x 55mm
- DL/Compliment Slip, third size A4 99mm x 210mm
- A6 size 148mm x 105mm
- A5 size 148mm x 210mm
- A4 size 297mm x 210mm
- A3 size 297mm x 420mm
Decide on quantities
Setup costs mean that larger quantities cost less per unit than short-runs so it can be much more economical to purchase a larger amount than initially required with the intention of ordering less frequently.
