Technical Support

Don’t know your gloss from your silk, your pantones from your CMYK or your 90gsm from your 350gsm? Don’t worry, we’re here to help…

Gloss – A high shine finish, making colours appear vibrant and intense. Best used for posters, leaflets and photographic reproductions.
Silk – A more subtle, sophisticated sheen, making text easier to read than on gloss. A good choice for annual reports, promotional literature, price lists etc.
Matt – A matt finish with no glare gives text a classic look. Often used for black & white photography reproduction.

All papers are available in a range of weights. We will advise as regards suitability for your product and budget and can provide samples for you to choose from.

Black – Black ink printed onto any colour paper. Usually chosen for simple letterheads, forms etc.
Pantone – International reference for selecting and controlling ink colours. For example, if you wanted black and red text then we would quote you black + 1 pantone, if you wanted black text with a blue and green logo it would be black + 2 pantone and so on. Beyond 2 pantone it is more cost effective to print in full colour.
Full Colour – Sometimes referred to as CMYK. Usually used for all jobs with three or more colours.

We can print anything from business cards up to B3 (360 x 520 mm) and all sizes in between. If you are unsure of size, bring us a sample or explain your concept to us and we will advise what will suit you best. Our sister company Gomer Press specialises in large format printing so there really is no job too big or too small for us.

Number of Pages
Page numbers are calculated in the same way as the pages of a book. For example, one sheet of A5 printed on both sides is 2 pages. One sheet of A4 folded in half and printed on all sides is 4 pages. All booklets/brochures must have a page number divisible by 4.

Please note our standard terms and conditions which apply to all jobs placed with us.
