Sprint Print FAQs will always try to help you
People often ask What is bleed in printing? The ‘bleed’ is a 3mm section surrounding the edge of our printed dimensions so that all images, text and colour that are intended to extend to the edge of the page can bleed off the page allowing your print to go right to the edge of the paper used.
It’s very important that you consider the bleed when printing text, boxes and other elements so they are not cut from the finished print.
In a word No. The image on your screen consists of RGB colours which in effect makes your screen acts as a light bulb, so what you see is known as ‘additive’ colour.
We calibrate our printers to achieve the best colour range possible to match print colours and we will adjust the images before printing if required to get the best quality for you.
Please provide images created at least 300 pixels per inch or 300dpi. If you have incorporated text, we suggest 400-600dpi.
Digital printing is produced on our digital presses that do not use the printing plates used in offset litho printing. The key benefit is the minimal set-up cost, which means print runs can start from one upwards and also allows you to produce only the number of prints you need.
Another benefit of digital print is that with no plates, it allows for multiple designs and each piece of print to be fully personalised. We hope this helps with your question of what is digital printing.
