Do you print in RGB or CMYK?
We print in CMYK. When providing artwork, the colour needs to be set as CMYK not RGB (RGB artwork will be converted to CMYK, as this could affect your colours).

Our website has a vast number of products available and we add new products on a regular basis. However, if there is something you need that isn't on our website, please request a quote on our speak to us page.
What's the difference between Standard, Express and Super-Fast?
Standard, Express and Super-Fast are production times.
Superfast is the fastest turnaround possible - for orders completed before 11am, we guarantee to print and dispatch on the same day as the order was placed, so you or your customer will receive the order on the next working day.
Express Service - for orders completed before 5pm we guarantee to print and dispatch next day, so you or your customer will receive the order within two working days.
Standard service - for orders completed before 5pm we guarantee to print and dispatch within the configured time stated at the bottom of your customised product.
Turnarounds are product specific, the more processes the product goes through the longer it takes. For example, Scodix Business cards has a 3 configuration but if you add lamination the configuration for this product changes to 4 days.
