7 PAPER ... CAN I PROVIDE MY OWN?

8 COLOUR MATCHING & PRINTING DEPTH
We are glad to attempt to match any pantone color, however we do not guarantee perfect matches.
Machine made Pantone and other custom colours are available for additional charge just consider that a one-pound minimum order is due and must be paid in full by the client.
The final printing depth in letterpress is determined by many factors but the critical ones are Paper Thickness and Line / Font Size ... so the smaller the font / lines the less notable the depth could be.
Letterpress printing does not allow printing 1 of just for approval or as samples. It is important to understand that the setup process ( the most expensive part of the job) includes all the preliminary adjustments to the machine like leveling, alignment, machine inking, colour preparation, plates manufacturing etc to finally get the first piece perfectly printed which is quite complex and can take up to a full day . The only and most accurate printing proof for your stationery is the digital proof that you receive by email.
Your approval of the final digital proof also confirms that TiYPO.grafica.press will not be liable for any typographical, spelling or design errors. Changes after approval but prior to the press run will be allowed with a 40% surcharge.
We have had clients asking to see a proof of their project before they pay... But by all means, we can Not get our team started on any projects before the deal is sealed with the 50% upfront payment.
10 WHERE DO PRICES COME FROM ?
Our prices are calculated based on variable factors such as :
• Paper weight 120, 300 or 600g• Number of inks ( up to 3 ) each ink represents a new set up + new plates + new press inking.• Overall printing size (cm2)
So the thicker the paper , the bigger the format and the more inks to be printed; The more expensive it gets.
*Blind printing counts as 1 ink as well.
It is important to understand that the most expensive part of the job is the SETUP as it is the most time and knowledge consuming stage at which both little & big details must be arranged in order to get the first piece just "Perfect" ... Once the SETUP is finally ready every single piece of paper is manually fed and removed from the press, reason why letterpressing could be risky requires a lot of craftsmanship and is subject to natural variations of colour, impression, registration and other sometimes imperceptible characteristics.
The most effective and time saving way to get a quote is to let us know what your total budget is, however you can also start by selecting paper sizes for each of your formats ( Invites, RSVP, Reception Cards etc.) decide how many colours would you like to appear in your stationery and then give us a hint of how many printouts would you be needing in total.
