Q: Why does it take 10-14 days to produce my Business Cards? 

A: It's likely that your cards will be produced quicker than this, but we have to allow a sensible turnaround time as quite often we are buying in the materials specifcally for your job.

Q: Do you give discounts to other printers or students? 

A: Sorry, no (unless it's a very quiet period). I offer quite low prices anyway so everyone gets the same.

Q: What’s the best way to layout my business card design? 

A: Ideally I’d like designs to be supplied as pdf, with each colour parts/sides as separate designs.
Black (cmyk) on white with all fonts converted, with no crop marks. For more details please use the contact page.

Q: What makes a good foil print design? 

A: Tricky to answer; but it’s best to avoid really large bold or very small text or large areas of solid colour, as these are hard to reproduce in foils, especially onto Colorplan card. For best results use slim font types and keep solid areas of foil quite small as these will print best. Keep to 1 or 2 colours per side. 

Q: Can you print in Pantone colours? 

A: The foils are available in a lot of different shades, but I can’t guarantee they will be available in a colour from the Pantone range. But I’ll always try to match as closely as possible.

Q: What other printing types can you supply? 

A: I only print in foils but I can arrange for certain other types of print to be done on customers behalf, such as litho or digital printing, but these will be subject to availability and may only be available on certain materials.

Q: How can I pay for my business cards?

A: The best way would be using bank transfer/payment; but we can also take payments via Paypal or Cheque, although paying via cheque would increase the time it would take to process your cards.

Q: Can I have a bespoke sized business card? 

A: Yes, I can usually supply cards in any size (within reason) but bespoke sizes may be subject to a minimum order quantity.

Q: How will you send my business cards?

A: I send all orders in the UK via next day delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery). If you would like your cards sending by another delivery method please let me know. 

Q: Can you send business cards outside the UK?

A: Yes. I’ve posted cards to the US, Australia, Germany, Norway, France and many other countries. So please ask for prices. 

Q: Why don’t you have a telephone number on your web site?

A: Because I only foil print on a part-time basis it’s not convenient to have a phone number available, email is the best way and allows designs to be sent, which in 99% of cases is going to be required before I can do anything for you. 

Q: Can you design me a business card?

A: I can design you a business card, but due to time issues I prefer to have at least a basic design idea to work from. I can then create you a foil print design from that.
If you would like a complete card/logo designing from scratch I would probably recommend you to one of the design companies that we’ve worked with in the past. 

Q: Can you print letterheads and comp slips with foil?

A: I can usually foil print letterheads and comp slips but please contact me with your exact requirements so I can confirm this.

Q: Can you make me a sample of my card? 

A: Unfortunately I can’t make a sample using your designs unless you wish to pay to have the designs made into magnesium blocks; this is usually £25 for 1 design or £30 for 2 designs. This can then be used to print your design onto different colours of card and in different foils so you can see which you prefer.

Q: Why do I need to pay in advance for my business cards? 

A: I ask for payment in advance because of the cost of materials.

Q: What card types to you print onto? 

A: Generally I print with Colorplan 540gsm or 700gsm card (350gsm is also available) or 330gsm Plike, but if you have a card type you would like to use I can probably help to find it, or if you have card already you can send a sample for test printing.

Q: Do you have a minimum order quantity?

A: No, you can order any amount of cards you like. It’s really down to the customer to decide what is best for them from a financial point of view. Only printing 10 cards will obviously work out to be an expensive thing to do when compared with the cost of 250, for example.

Q: Can I negotiate on your prices? 

A: You can always try!

Q: Will you match other Printers prices? 

A: If it’s a price based on exactly the same criteria then I will try to match a price. But I would recommend asking for a sample of both printers work, so you can compare quality and workmanship. 

Q: Can you send me a sample of your foils?

A: I can send you a sample of foil, if it’s a colour I have here, otherwise a sample swatch can be obtained from Foilco.

Q: Can you offer advice about foil printing as I’ve never used it before?

A: Yes, of course. I’m more than happy to answer any questions about the foil printing process or about business card designs.

Q: How long does it take you to reply to my emails?

A: Usually I try to reply within 24 hours, but if I don’t reply within 2 days please don’t be offended, just email me again as sometimes they don’t always get through or I may just have missed yours.
