Commercial Printing FAQ

I NEED A SPECIFIC COLOUR TO MATCH MY BRAND, DO YOU OFFER SERVICES THAT CAN GUARANTEE THE PROPER COLOUR THAT I WANT?
Yes! In fact, the only way to guarantee an exact colour every time you print is with the Colour Matching System (CMS). What you usually see on your computer screen may not translate exactly to print.

CMS 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.

I WANT TO SEE HOW MY PRINT WILL LOOK ON THE STOCK FIRST, WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
We offer a proof printing service for digital press jobs. We are not able to print proofs for our offset stocks as the jobs are batch-run, which means a large order is required and one page alone cannot be printed.

To know more about what you can order printing proofs for, please refer to our Printing Proof page.

WHAT FILE FORMAT WILL BLITZ NEED FROM ME?
We recommend sending a print-ready PDF, meaning a vector/300dpi file with all fonts outlined and images linked (for more information visit Design Guideline).  This will result in a better transition of your files from digital to print.

Please check our downloadable templates.

I NEED TO PRINT DOUBLE-SIDED, IN FULL COLOUR. WHAT’S THE PRICE?
All our prices are based on double-sided full colour prints. Prices are fixed, and not dependant upon design.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE A DESIGN FILE?
We have a built-in design template for business cards and greeting cards on our product pages that you may use!

Please refer to our How To Use The Built-In Design Template page for a step-by-step guide on how to use the template!

We also offer blank templates with guidelines that you can find here available in Ps and Ai.

CAN I SPLIT MY ORDER INTO MULTIPLE DESIGN FILES?
Unfortunately, we do not offer this service. For clients that wish to print tickets, gift certificates, or anything with differing codes can be done with a special finishing option found at the bottom of our product pages.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I’M ELIGIBLE FOR A VOLUME DISCOUNT?
We recommend clients that need to order multiple sets of business cards for their employees to send us an email requesting for a quote. We will get back to you with an answer as soon as we can!
WHAT ARE THE TURNAROUND TIMES FOR YOUR BUSINESS CARDS, AND HOW LIKELY IS IT TO BE DONE AT THE EARLIEST POSSIBLE TIME?
