Printing terms explained

Understanding bleed

We could go into this in some depth, but someone has kindly done it for us…

Understanding Bleed (Wikipedia)

We need bleed on every job that you send to us, so please – if you’re not sure and want your job to run smoothly, read this first!

What is CMYK?

Much of our printing is carried out in process colours – commonly known as CMYK.  Want to understand more?

A small note to say a big thank you for your help with our recent order. I really appreciated you checking in with us before going to print and for your help in posting to two addresses.

I wanted to give you a big thank you for delivering the Twist frame so quickly. From the time I sent the first email to the afternoon you set it up took less than 5 working days. Amazing turnaround and outstanding service as always. I've received excellent feedback from our Product Manager and MD, it looks great.

Thank you for doing the books for us, absolutely perfect, in time, on budget - what more could I ask.

Can I thank you all at Flexpress for your fantastic service and printed materials this year for (my company), for Leicester Art Week and for my friend, Jane. I know Jane has found your support invaluable (and has probably saved her sanity!)

Just a quick note to say thank you and well done to you and the rest of the crew at Flexpress on the urgent 12pp landscape job you have just produced.
Quality was spot on and, as it was ready sooner than expected, allowed us to make better use of our own transport.
