FAQ’s

What kind of printing can you do?

Pretty much anything! If it involves print, we can help. Banners, indoor and outdoor signage, corporate print packages, brochures, stickers, packaging, cut to shape items, wall wraps – you name it!

How do I get a quote?

All you have to do is either fill out the form on the Quoting page or call us up at 303-432-0500! We’ll get that quote to you as soon as we can.

Why should I use you over an Internet printer?

By using a local printer, you get the customer service you should expect, the flexibility to print on the stocks you want, a quicker total print schedule, and a relationship with a company that cares about your business not only now but for years to come.

What is the difference between a vector and raster image?

Vector files like .eps or .ai are essentially mathematical equations that can scale to any size without degradation. Raster images are picture files like .tif, .jpg, and .png. Typically we recommend 300 DPI at ¼ size of final enlargement. The farther away the final piece is viewed also plays into the equation. Something viewed up close that looks terrible can look great for across the street. If you’re not sure, just ask. We’re here to help and we will typically alert you before printing if we feel something won’t look good.

Why won’t an image taken off the web won’t look good in my printed piece?
While vector art is scalable, raster art (photos, image captures) have their limits. An image on the web may look fine on your screen but printed images need much more resolution. Think of having a cup of paint. That amount of paint is plenty to paint the small pet house for your hamster. Now take that same cup of paint and for your dog house it’s going to look pretty thin and spotty to stretch that amount of paint to finish the job. Image what it’s going to look like if you try to paint your entire home with that amount of paint. That’s what an image taken off the web or facebook will look like. Okay as a small stamp but not so good on a 10’ banner.

What’s your normal turn time?

Most projects can be turned in 3-4 days. We try to never charge our clients rush charges – we do whatever it takes to hit your deadline. The only time we charge for super fast turn times is if it involves having to work outside our normal production hours (6am-10pm) or weekends.

What kind of art file do you need from me?

Typically we ask our clients to provide an art file that is at least 300 dpi and in the form of .ai or PDF. You can usually tell if a file is big enough based on the file size as well- a small file (say less than 1 megabyte) is too small most likely. The larger the better. Call if you have any questions and we’d be happy to help!

Can you travel?

Why not? Let’s see what you have in mind and we’ll figure out whether we’re a good fit for your project and go from there. We’ve done a lot of traveling for various projects.

Can I request a hard proof or even color match?

Of course. Just let us know in advance that you need a hard proof of your print or need us to match a PMS color that is specific to your brand. We have the expertise to make that happen for you!
