Commercial Printing FAQ
WHY CAN’T I ORDER 100 SATIN OR SUPER GLOSS BUSINESS CARDS?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OFFSET AND DIGITAL PRESS PRINTING?
Digital printing uses heat to set the toner permanently to the paper’s surface. Great for a quicker turnaround time and smaller quantity prints.
To learn more about the difference between offset and digital press printing, please refer to our Offset VS Digital page.
I NEED A SPECIFIC COLOUR TO MATCH MY BRAND, DO YOU OFFER SERVICES THAT CAN GUARANTEE THE PROPER COLOUR THAT I WANT?
PMS is a service for offset printing, if you are in a rush and need digital printing, but still want a specific colour we recommend Proof Printing and colour swatches.
