Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I get a quote?


What do I need to send?

The project you want printed/designed
Quantity
Size and page number (e.g. 8.5''x11'' letter sized paper folded to 5.5''x8.5'' booklet)
When you need it (our turnaround for any standard project is 2 wks)
Special notes (paper type, whether or not it bleeds, hardcopy proof etc.)


Please send us PDFs! Whether you are working in Pages, Word, InDesign, Illustrator, or Googledocs, export as a PDF!

All saddle-stitch (stapled) zines must have a page count divisible by 4 (4 pages print on 1 sheet of paper).

All images/pages that intend to bleed off of the sheet (for a no border look) must be at least 1/8'' over-sized.

We can assist with all this but please keep in mind that file setup/changes start at $35. Advice, tips, and questions are free though!

I'm short on cash!

We know it's tough! That's why we are here. Let us know your budget or ask us ways in which you can save money (i.e. by using paper we already have, changing the size or number of pages, ordering more up front and paying in two parts).

Don't let your wages stop you from making and sharing your art.
