Digital offset printing caters for quantities from 1,000-2,500. Size & effect restrictions apply.

Large format inkjet printing caters for as few as one print, but that one print will bear all setup & production costs. Thereafter, the unit pricing improves.

It’s recommended to increase the quantity to take advantage of lower unit pricing.

Digital offset printing caters for 1,000-2,500 units, but only for 2-image flip effects, and sizes up to 86 x 140 mm. 

Alternatively, if you’re in no hurry, we can sometimes accommodate small quantities of business cards and postcards by ganging various jobs together in the one production run. Customers benefit from a reduced price point since the setup costs are shared across the participants.

Payment must be prepaid in full prior to commencement of work.
