HELP

1 6 or 4 sheet?

6-sheet posters are 1200 x 1800mm
4-sheet posters are 1000 x 1500mm

2 Do you want encapsulation?

First of all, what does encapsulation mean? In this context, encapulation is where we laminate both sides of your poster with a thin gloss plastic film and include a clear lip all the way round. This seals and protects the poster.

3 Quantity?

As these are digitally printed, you can order any quantity from one up.

4 How fast do you need them?

Standard service is 5 working days to print from approval of artwork and we then send your order on a next business day courier. For non-account customers (with the exception of UK government and local government), we do not schedule your job until payment has been made. We can upgrade the delivery service to guaranteed next business day service or a Saturday delivery at an extra charge. If you need it in a hurry then the 2 day to print express service is available. All service times are working days until your print job is complete, don't forget to add time in transit to your planning. Collection from our factory is available BY PRIOR ARRANGEMENT ONLY.

5 What proofing do you need?

Your first PDF proof is free of charge with your order. This will be viewable through your admin area of the web site. If you find that you need to make alterations and resubmit your artwork, we do charge £5 for each additional proof. You can also opt for a reduced size hard copy print. These cost £7 each and will be printed at A3 size and posted to you.

6 What delivery option do you need?

We include next business day delivery in these prices. Bear in mind are that "business days" for the next business day delivery service is defined by the courier company as Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays. Standard delivery is not a guaranteed next day service and it is not possible to request a delivery time. More than 95% of deliveries are made next day, but you can upgrade this to a next day AM service. The courier do guarantee that this is next day during the morning. Normal delivery is Monday-Friday, but if you need a Saturday delivery then you can select this option.

Although it's not always possible, it's a really, really good idea to build an extra day into your schedule "just in case"!

7 How will you be supplying your artwork?

We only accept artwork in print-ready PDF format for 4 & 6-sheet posters. If your artwork is in any other format, please contact the help desk for assistance.

info

do I get a proof?

We do not offer a soft proof with this product. If you would like a hard copy proof, please select a single poster. Please check your artwork very carefully before uploading it as we print directly from your file.
info

how are these posters printed?

They are printed with HP Latex inks on water resistant Blue Back paper. You can also request a non blue black paper (outdoor paper) at the same price if you prefer - please contact the helpdesk to request this option. These posters have excellent resistance to fading in sunlight and they are also "splash resistant", i.e. the ink won't run if the installers are caught in a shower.
info

should I have my posters encapsulated?

You need to be very careful with this option - not all frames can accept encapsulated posters, so you must check with your installers before ordering. Why encapsulate? Some campaigns are re-run and if the posters are not encapsulated then the posters cannot be re-used. Always check with your installer to make sure that they can store and re-use your posters.
info

what is the "safe copy" area?

The safe copy area is the area within which the images and text must be placed to allow for the frame on the advertising panel. For 6-sheet posters this is 1760 x 1160mm. For 4-sheet posters the safe copy area is 1423 x 914mm.
info

When you encapsulate, is the finished size exactly the same size as the original poster?

Yes, these posters must be the right size, otherwise they will not fit. We therefore trim the poster to slightly under the intended size (see "safe copy") in order to provide a full encapsulation all the way around.
