Design

Our creative designers and production staff are equipped with comprehensive tools and pre-press knowledge. Our designs rock and we always deliver accurate, high quality printing.

Pre-press

We check all artwork for any factors that will affect print quality and in general we do not send proofs of print ready artwork, however, we would be happy to send PDF proofs on request.

If your are supplying print ready artwork then please read our file specifications to avoid possible delay and/or prepress fees.

If your artwork is not print ready then:

      • for small changes, we will make adjustments at our end and do not charge for the first 15 minutes
      • for  larger changes, we will contact you and provide you with the option to resubmit your artwork or quote for the required changes.

Any changes to artwork will be emailed to you as a PDF for proofing and approval.

How much do you charge for design and pre-press?

Our design services are charged at $80 an hour billed in 15 min blocks.

Our pre-press rate is $80 per hour billed in 15 minute blocks with the first 15 minutes free.

How long does it take for printing to be completed?

We have an express and standard turnaround for printing.

  • Express 24-48 hours: A3 size or under. No more than 5000 copies.
  • Standard 3-5 working days: This is the turn-around for all printing.
  • Orders with special inks, overprints, laminating, celloglazing, folding, scoring, perforating etc may increase turnaround time.

The turn-around time begins once your artwork is checked by Sydney Posters and is deemed to be print ready.
