Following on with our FAQ series, another question we get asked almost on a daily basis is regarding minimum orders. We always endeavour to remain as flexible as possible which is why we do not have a minimum order – you can order as few or as many of you like. You need a single presentation printed urgently for the morning? No problem. You need 20 invoice sheets printed to get you through a busy patch? No problem. You require a picture printed for a last minute gift? Again, no problem. Not only are we flexible, we are fast too which means that moment of oversight or last minute pitch you need to do, just became one less thing to worry about.

We are fast, friendly and local so why not give us a call today on 01242 518191 to discuss how we could help you or your business.

A question we often get here at Typecraft is ‘how big can you print’? Well the answer is big… really big. We are capable of printing up to a width of 2.5m and to a length of 50m – that’s as tall as Nelson’s Column!

If you require more modest sized posters or large format materials however, we got you covered there as well. Give us a call on 01242 518191 to find out how we can help with your next project.

Nelsons Column

The words ‘crops and bleed’ are some of the most frequently used terms in printing. But what are they?Basically commercial print machinery can not print right to the edge of a sheet (unlike some home photo printers) so in order to achieve full coverage printing, we have to print the page on a slightly larger sheet and then trim down to the desired size.

In a nut shell, crop marks are simply a guide for the print finisher as to where to trim the sheet and the bleed area is 3mm ‘extra’ of the image or colour that extends beyond the page boundary -applied to the document when it is designed. When the page is trimmed to the crop marks, the extra 3mm bleed area is trimmed off and sent for recycling… and voila, glorious full page coverage.

At Typecraft we completely understand that the shear amount of terminology used in the industry can be baffling at best, so if you require any specific clarification on specific terms, please feel free to call us on 01242 518191 and we happily talk you through it.
