FAQ

Thinking about having us print your documents? Got a question concerning file format, the printing process or other related topics? Here is a selection of the most commonly asked questions about our printing services.

1. How can I deliver the documents I need to print to Wombourne printers?

Please send us your files by E-mail to studio@wombourne-printers.co.uk or deliver them to the office on a CD, DVD or USB flash drive.

 

2. Which file format should I use?

We prefer PDF format. We can also accept files in Indesign and Quark Xpress. We can try and work with files created in Microsoft applications but please be advised that none of these packages are really suitable for commerial print. We will always work with you and advise on the best way to use your artwork to create the best job possible.

For printing images, we recommend JPG, PSD, TIF or EPS.

 

3. What resolution do I need to print a poster?

For posters or other large formats, we recommend at least 300 or 600 dpi. In some cases, 200 dpi will do.

 

4. Can I view my data on a PC before printing?

We can provide a PDF proof for your approval before printing if artwork has to be worked on.

 

5. Can I see a hard copy proof before printing?

We can supply a hard copy proof for a small charge. This is from an Epson proofer which is colour calibrated to our machine room presses so colour representation is quite accurate. However, although this proofer uses 8 inks to represent true colour it will not always match spot colours accurately.

Machine proofs are available but are often costly due to plate production and machine set up. Contact us for further details.
