I just wanted to let you know that I have received the poster and that I am absolutely STUNNED with the quality of printing that you have produced! It's absolutely the most exceptional quality I have ever seen from a printer and for the most reasonable price. I wanted to extend my most sincerest gratitude to you for helping me out on such short notice. It was incredibly kind of you, and I truly would have been stuck without your help. I will recommend your business to anyone in need of printing!

FAQS
 

 What are Pantone colours?
Pantone colours is a universal stadard. They are used by professional print shops around the world. It helps designers, print shops and customers talk in one language. This type of paint will always look the same color any time you print it.

What is a difference between CMYK and Pantone colours?
CMYK- is a four colour process printing technique, widely used in home printers and even industrial printing.
Pros: relatively less expensive; can print in unlimited amount of colours; can be printed on a home computer.
Cons: colours are not very sharp; printed colours almost always will be in different shades (very hard to control the lightness and saturation of the colours each time it is printed); requires a lot of printer calibration; is limited to a less heavy paper stock.
Conclusion: CMYK is preferable for printing in more than 3 colours. It works best for home and office printing, but is not the best solution for professionally printed stationery.
Pantone – is a spot colour printing technique, only used in professional print shops.
Pros: colors are very sharp and always accurate for every printing; can be printed in very large quantities; can be printed on heavy paper stock and multiple paper surfaces.
Cons: Not the cheapest solution, as it gets very expensive if used more than 3 colors; not suitable for home office printing.
Conclusion: This is the most recommended printing technique for printing high-quality professional stationery; not good for home printing.

What is a Word Template?
Word Template is a Microsoft Word file. We can provide letterhead design for the word template.
It contains almost exact replica of your original letterhead design, with an option to type in the body of the document and leaving all the graphical elements untouched. If you have Microsoft Word you can print this document on your local printer directly from your computer. However there are some limitations in quality and positioning.

What are the limitations of the word template?
Word template does not allow to embed a high quality vector graphic or a higher resolution bitmap file. Therefore the previewing and printing quality is not as high as the original vector files. There is no option to implement bleeding in the word template document. Some white space margins may be visible on your document. The size of the margins is determined by the program and the printer set up.

What is a scalable vector file?
Vector files are files that you can resize, scale, and even change colours or fonts without loosing any quality or resolution on your image. It's best to make GIFs or any other bitmap formats you may need for your web site. Vector files are mostly used by professional designers or print shops.

What is bitmap file?
Bitmap files are a more popular file that are the best to use on the Web. You may use them on most word applications, they are small in size, but hard to modify because of their poor resolution. You may notice a big distortion in your image if you try to scale a bitmap file. The most popular bitmap files are GIF, JPEG, TIFF and BMP.

How can I use vector files?
Vector files are used on specific vector based software applications such as Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw.

How can I use bitmap files?
Bitmap files may be used in a large variety of software applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, Photo Paint or many other programs. They can be opened in most word processing applications such as Microsoft Word and many Web design programs.

Why does the colour look different when I print it?
Your personal printer doesn't use exact colours that you see on the screen. You have to calibrate your printer with the screen first for the best match.

Why does the color change on different monitors when I view the samples?
The color you see on the screen depends a lot on the adjustments of the screen settings and color setup. It also depends on the brand and model of the monitor. Two identical monitors brand and model with the same settings will have slight color variation and intensity. There is no way to create a file that will show the same color on all the screens. Furthermore, when you print the file the color will change. 

When I view my stationery on the web site it seems to have different colors from my original logo design?
For best viewing purposes, we use RGB color mode to present the logo samples to you. It is the main standard for all computer oriented graphics, web included. However, when we work on stationery designs, we have no choice but to convert your files to either CMYK or Pantone colors (according to your preference). Printers do not work in RGB mode. Slight color shifts may occur. Pantone colors may appear even more different on screen because we match them on the Pantone chart as it will appear when it gets printed. You will show you a printed sample of your files before we proceed with your order. Also, we can match our printing to the sample you might have.
