Paid Proofing Speed -
Adding a paid proof service may add 24 hours to production time (91% of the time it does not). Paid proofing is a service that allows you to buy time for a professional designer
on our end to examine and/or correct your artwork for technical issues like centering, bleed, color modes and resolution. This is like added insurance to ensure nothing prints poorly.
Quality of Printing with BlockbusterPrint™ - (Digital vs. Offset Printing)
There is two types of printing methods in the world: Digital and Offset. You ALWAYS want to have offset printing as your
method in print production. Here is why....
- DIGITAL PRINTING: is what your home/office computer printer uses. Great for the every day project but not something
you would rely on for high end production or occasions. Digital printing is something local copy shops print with. The
quality of digital versus offset is extremely noticeable. Our only digitally produced items are card stocks under 500 quantities.
- OFFSET PRINTING: is the absolutely highest quality print production in the world and BlockbusterPrint™ provides
this method to you, standard. Offset Printing in CMYK color mode requires the burning of your artwork onto metal plates, then your order is
run through higher end printing press that spans the length of a semi-truck. BlockbusterPrint™ uses computer-to-film
work flows, further increasing quality. The offset printing method is superior for those looking for nothing but the best.
