Q? How do I calculate the spine width of my book?

Q? What is the best format to supply printing files in?
Our file format of choice is PDF. We do work with other file formats however through experience we have found PDF to be the most stable and dependable file format. If you don’t have Adobe Acrobat you can convert your files to PDF at: . This application is simple to use and completely free.
Q? What is the smallest amount I can order?
You can print one copy but it will be more expensive per unit than say 100 copies. With digital printing we price on a sliding scale – quantity versus unit price.
Q? What is bleed?
Bleed refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet after trimming. Bleed ensures that no unprinted edges occur in the final trimmed document. It is very difficult to print exactly to the edge of a sheet, to achieve this it is necessary to print a slightly larger area than is needed and then trim down to the required finished size. Please include 5mm bleed in all artwork supplied. On business cards only a 2mm bleed all round will do.
