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?

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!)

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.

Just wanted to thank you for turning around the co-op leaflets so quickly especially given the unsatisfactory artwork that I first forwarded. This is greatly appreciated.

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.
