Offset printing is a traditional printing method that uses plates to transfer ink onto a rubber blanket, which then rolls the ink onto paper. Digital printing, on the other hand, directly prints from a digital file without the need for plates. Offset printing is ideal for large runs and offers high-quality, consistent results, while digital printing is better suited for shorter runs and quick turnarounds.

The best choice depends on your project’s requirements. Offset printing is cost-effective for larger print runs and provides excellent color accuracy and quality. Digital printing is better for smaller quantities, faster turnaround times, and projects requiring variable data printing. Our team will help you make this decision.

Common brochure sizes include 8.5″ x 11″, 8.5″ x 14″, 11″ x 17″, and 11″ x 25.5″. Popular fold options are tri-fold, bi-fold, Z-fold, gate fold, and accordion fold. We can also accommodate custom sizes and folds.

Ensure your files are in CMYK color mode, with a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Include a 0.125″ bleed on all sides, and make sure all fonts are embedded or converted to outlines.

Bleed refers to the area of your design that extends beyond the trim edge of your printed piece. It ensures that there are no white borders when the piece is trimmed to size. We recommend a 0.125″ bleed on all sides.
