Questions and Answers

Q. I will be needing some Christmas cards printed up with a specific card design with the company logo imprinted into the design. is that something you can do?
A.That is exactly what we do. We need to know the quantity first, (an estimate is OK) then we will recommend different paper choices. Please let us know your business name and location too. 

Q. What is a proof?
A. A proof is an example from the printer of what your new card will look like. Black and white cards get blue-line prints, color cards get match proofs or rainbow proofs. The paper on the proof does not match the paper the cards will be printed on. A proof needs to be approved by the customer and an approval signed before printing may proceed. Long before we create a proof, we develop initial concepts for the cards that are approved in each stage.
