Online Printing System is a prepress process that bridges the gap between online digital content and commercial print production. The process allows a print house, a client or a graphic designer to create, edit, and approve computer-based online templates during the prepress phase. This process increasingly calls for a Portable Document Format (PDF) workflow environment with output provided by digital printing.
Yes! Our slogan is "We Can Print That!" We only provide products that are common and standard online because pricing has very little need for adjustment. However, we also specialize in printing custom items but custom items are exactly that and require a quote to get priced accordingly once given all the customized details.
The site currently supports the most commonly ordered and popular print products as listed. We are currently under construction and will be introducing more products we go along such as apparal and promotional items.
There are three options for designing and customizing a product. Click a product on the left-hand panel and choose one of the options.
1. Custom Design: lets you customize the products. Click it to open the design studio and use multiple tools to create your own design.
2. Upload Design: using this option, you can upload your own EPS, AI, PDF, INDD and PSD images.
3. Browse Design: use this to select hundreds of pre-loaded templates. Work on them or customize them through our design studio.
Business cards are printed most commonly on 14-point cardstock (thick), 16-point cardstock (thicker), and 100 lb. gloss cover (thin). These are the 3 most common kinds of paper used to print business cards.
Coated papers are available in two finishes – glossy (shiny and smooth) and matte (flat and lusterless). Coated glossy papers reflect the light evenly so they are suitable for almost all types of printing jobs. Glossy papers have a good ink holdout, which is important for creating sharp, bright images.
Matte paper has a more muted feel to it. This can be used to great effect in designs with a light or pastel color scheme, and in designs with a great deal of text on it. Because matte paper changes less under the light, they also have more of a “flat” feel than gloss sheets.
Our system supports CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) for producing digital prints. We have accurately mapped the digital color pallet to match CMYK color mode to ensure proper 4-color printing. Best color results will be creating art in this color mode.
300 dpi (dots per inch) or higher is the resolution best for the print output of a PDF file.
Resolution, also known as DPI (Dots Per Inch) or PPI (Pixels Per Inch), can be described as the number of dots that fit horizontally and vertically into a one-inch space. Generally, the more dots per inch, the more detail captured and the sharper the resulting image.
DO NOT ENLARGE a 72 dpi file to a 300 dpi document.
* Your monitor displays between 72 and 96 ppi. To adequately view print resolution on a monitor, you should zoom in 400%.
You can cancel at any time prior to the order going into production. Once items have started printing, we can no longer accept a cancellation. If you need to change your order for any reason, please contact Customer Service to make any changes to your order.
