Frequently Asked Questions
I've been disappointed with ganged flyer printing before. I like your prices, but are you printing this on some horrendous old press in a shed somewhere and poisoning the planet?
These are printed on one of our shiny modern presses using the latest environmentally friendly processless thermal plates and vegetable ink. We print at 200lpi hybrid screening to the FOGRA39 standard for pin sharp high quality printing.
I feel dirty buying a product made of paper and weep for the rainforests, how can you sleep at night?
We use a brand name paper from an ISO14001 accredited paper mill, which uses only farmed pulp paper. Dry your tears, it's the same principle as farmed carrots, except without all the pesticides. Our stock paper is currently Essential Gloss, supplied by Premier paper. You can read all about it here:-

The rainforest are completely safe from us. In fact the last bits are being cleared as we speak to make way for more palm oil plantations to supply margarine, chocolate, oven chips and cosmetics. Oh now, stop your blubbering, you're making the keyboard all wet.
1 What size is your flyer?
A6 is 148.5x105mm
A5 is 210x148.5mm
There is also a size sometimes known as "DL" (this is actually an envelope size), but people generally mean 1/3 A4, i.e. 210x99mm. If you want this size, it's the same price as A5. Please just order that and tell us through the notes section that you want 1/3 A4 size.
2 How do you want this printed?
Currently you can choose from:-
both sides in full colour
The full colour is using a four colour process and there is no savings to be had if you just want one or two colours.
3 What paper weight do you want?
These are our current stock papers:
300gsm gloss art- suitable for "normal" flyers.
This is a good quality gloss art paper, from a farmed and environmentally responsible source.
If you'd like anything else then please check the "leaflets" page for a price.
4 How fast do you need it?
Standard service is 5 working days to print from approval of artwork and we then send it 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. All service times are working days until your print job (and finishing) 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 included in the price of 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.
First of all, please read section 7 - "How fast do you need it". Other things to 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. This is not a guaranteed next day service, though you can pay extra and order this. Although it's not always possible, it's a really, really good idea to build an extra day into your schedule "just in case"!
These prices are from your electronic original, preferably PDF. If you need artwork designed, please email us with your brief and we will be pleased to give you a quotation.
