How long will my printing take?

Most 1 and 2 colour printing will take 4 working days to design the proof ( artwork ) and 5 days to print once you pass the final proof ( artwork ). However, if you have urgent printing, this can usually be speeded up. Please note some printing will take longer.

Most full colour printing will take 7 working days to design the proof ( artwork ) and 10 working days to print once you pass the final proof ( artwork ). However, it can be considerably faster, especially if digital printing is being used. We print most of your work here in Pembrokeshire, unlike other firms who sub-contract it to printers outside of West Wales.

With digital printing it will take up to 7 working days to design the proof ( artwork ) but only 3 days to print once you have passed the final proof ( artwork ). However, these are the worst case scenarios, your digital printing could be produced faster.

Can I speak to a Graphic Designer without committing myself?

Yes. You are more than welcome to speak to one of our in-house graphic designers in Pembrokeshire without committing yourself. Indeed you will be encouraged to do so. How else will you be able to gauge if we are the right graphic designers and printers for you. After all, you have to be confident that we can deliver graphic design you will be 100% happy with.

It is only when your graphic designer starts creating your corporate design that an order is required from you.

How much do you charge for Graphic Design in Pembrokeshire?

Nothing in most cases, as long as you place your printing order with us. This is because your printing price includes all graphic design, interior photography, scanning, drawing, illustrations, logo creation, proofs, amendments and corporate branding to save you money in Pembrokeshire. Indeed, you will not have to pay any hidden extras, giving you control of your marketing budget.

The only exception is digital printing. This is because digital print runs are usually very short and cost little. However, once your digital printing artwork has been designed you will not have to pay for it again, making it perfect for your menus and other low volume runs.

Alternatively, you can use our graphic designers & studio without the printing service, for a fixed price, depending on the design you would like created. This way you are not faced with a ticking clock pushing up your costs every time you change something, or have a new proof. It really saves you money when compared to other Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire design studio's that charge by the hour. It is perfect for those who want to use their existing printers.

Do you take customer supplied artwork on disk?

Yes, but you must use an appropriate graphic design software package e.g. Quark Express or Adobe InDesign. Whilst we accept Adobe Photoshop files it is a raster based software program which means that text quality suffers. You can also supply Microsoft Publisher files but it is really not designed for commercial printers, only home production on a computer printer. Due to this it will either have to be digitally printed (which is more tolerant to MS Publisher) or have a graphic designer re-create it in an appropriate software package. Almost certainly pre-press work will have to be carried out on it.

Digital Printing in PembrokeshireYou should ideally supply your graphic design -

  • Saved as a PDF
  • Photos and graphics 300dpi or higher resolution
  • Text saved to outline ( InDesign ) or curves ( Quark Express )
  • 1 + 2 colour printing saved as spot colour
  • Full colour printing saved as CMYK
  • 3mm bleed all the way around the outside of the job
  • Appropriate Margins with crop marks
  • The size you want it finally printed - not smaller or bigger.
  • And absolutely no RGB Colours

If you have difficulty our Pembrokeshire graphic designers can do it for you, but that means you are no longer supplying the artwork.

Please call 01646 682676 with the exact graphic design package you are using for detailed guidance & help. Alternatively, email the actual design you want and we will quote for printing your job with any graphic design time included.

Please note - Digital printing is a lot more forgiving than litho offset printing. Many designs saved to disk that would not work on a conventional press will be fine when printed digitally.

Will you give me a proof / sample of my design before it is printed?

Yes. Indeed the graphic designers will often insist on it. How else are you to know if the graphic design and corporate branding created for you is what you want? What is more, you will often be given a choice of designs to choose from, 3 or 4 if a new logo and corporate branding is being designed for you.

You will also be encouraged to request any changes you would like made, giving you complete control. Your artwork will even be started again from scratch in the unlikely event that you feel the graphic designers misunderstood your brief.

You will not have to pay a penny more for your printing no matter how many changes you make to your design, saving you money. Your proof will either be emailed to you or a digitally printed copy posted if you prefer.

Will you help with corporate branding and logo design in Pembrokeshire?

Yes. Our experienced Pembrokeshire graphic designers will be delighted to speak to you about all aspects of your Corporate Branding. You will be given sound design advice. This is even before you place your Corporate Branding & Logo design order.

Before you order your graphic designer will guide you through colours, materials, image, typeface, style and Corporate Branding in Pembrokeshire. Notes and sketches will be made from which a selection of logos and themes will be designed for you, once you place your order. You will also be advised whether litho offset or digital printing is the best option for you, giving you choice. Please take a look at the samples page to see some of the designs created in the past for Pembrokeshire businesses like yours.

How do I get my proof / design sample?

Once your graphic designer has created your proof ( artwork ) it will be -

1 - Printed out and posted to you. Please note it will be printed digitally and not on the printing press. When it is actually printed, your design will be on the exact material chosen when you had your design consultation and not the proofing material. It will also be produced using the printing method you chose, which is often not digital printing.

Furthermore, whilst the colours on your digital proof will be very close to the ones it will be printed in, they will not be exactly the same. The final printed colours will be the ones that you chose from the calibrated Pantone colour chart, when you placed your printing order. We will apply them on the printing press from precisely matched tins of inks.

The reasons for this are that digital proofing machines use a different colour referencing system and technology from the traditional litho offset printing presses. There is no way to avoid this. However, if you decided upon digital printing your proof ( artwork ) will be produced on the actual material and machine it is going to be printed on. So the colours and paper will be accurate.

2 - Or, your proof will be emailed to you. However, once again the colours shown, whilst very close to the ones you chose from a calibrated Pantone colour chart, will not be exactly the same.

This is because monitors use light ( Red, Green, Blue ) to create colours and not the solid ink pigments printers use. Once again there is no way of getting around this. If you print it out, your own printer will distort the colours because it is an uncalibrated, non professional printing machine.

Please note, for 99.9% of customers a small colour variance on the proof will make no difference at all. It will probably not even be noticed. It is only of importance to photographers and artists who want their work reproduced with exact colour accuracy
