Custom run offset printing generally caters for quantities starting at 2000 postcards, 1000 A5 cards, or 250 A3 posters. We can cater for fewer prints, but recommend double the quantities just listed for more desirable unit rates.
Gang run offset printing allows customers to order their design in lots of 500 cards at a very affordable rate. The trade off is potentially a protracted wait until we can confirm we have sufficient participants to proceed.
Large format inkjet printing caters for as few as one print. Note though that the first print bears all the setup costs (prepress and on the flatbed printer). So, order more copies if you can, to see the unit cost decrease.

I can only suggest that you consider our Gang run service.

Payment for such a proof must be prepaid in full prior to commencement of work.
