Colour  & Graphics Printing

If you are going to print a lot of coloured images, the type of paper you use will make a difference as to how well it looks when printed.  A number of printing papers are now available with ‘ColorLok’ technology, to help increase the vibrancy of colours when printed.

Things to keep in mind:

  •  How long will the document be in use? Is it a short term, throw away booklet or a long term brochure which must work for you, month in and month out until an update is produced?
  •  Digital print also offers exceptional colour reproduction and has the added advantage of being able to personalise your communication. This allows you to put, for example, individual names on the front or have a different message for a specific group of targeted customers.
  •  If your communication is going to contain lots of coloured images, the type of printing paper you use will make a difference as to how well it looks when printed. Gloss papers will give the best results, but if you want to be a little more creative then silk or even uncoated papers will deliver some outstanding results.
  •  Finishing will help your communication to stand out and incorporating a varnish on the front and/or inside pages, foil blocking or embossing could make a big difference to the way people perceive your company. If the content and messages are important to you, then it is well worth the additional cost of incorporating one or more of these finishes.
  •  If you are planning to post your communication, then you need to keep in mind weight and dimensions of the envelope, as size, thickness and weight will impact on the cost of postage.
  •  Cost should also be factored in, to help you decide if you are producing a premium, designer or mass market communication and you can then plan its content, print and finish to suit the product and your budget.
  •  Where environmental credentials are important to you, a wide variety of paper options are available to help you meet this need.
