Litho and Digital Printing
If you only require a small quantity, Digital Printing can be cheaper than Litho Printing. Digital Printing also allows you to have different artwork on every copy. As the quantity increases, Litho Printing becomes much cheaper than Digital Printing. Prices are displayed for both options in the price calculator. The right hand two columns are for Digital Printing and the first three columns are for Litho Printing.

Artwork and PDF requirements for Flyers & Leaflets
- We operate a PDF workflow, so please supply your Flyer or Leaflet artwork as a Press Quality PDF. If you prefer, we can create a PDF for you, in which case we will email a proof to you for approval. There is an additional charge for this PDF creation service of £20 plus VAT.
- If any print reaches the edge of your finished Flyer or Leaflet, please add 3mm bleed to all sides of your artwork
- We need a "quiet area" to ensure nothing important is too near to the trimmed edge of the Flyer or Leaflet; so please leave a 5mm inner margin for anything other than backgrounds
- Supply your Flyer or Leaflet artwork files to us in CMYK, not RGB please
- The image resolution should be 300dpi or more
- Please embed fonts or convert all of your text to shapes
If you would like to download a PDF template you can do so from the Templates page which is also accessible via the top menu bar.
