Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality.They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
Are presentation folders the same thing as pocket folders?Yes, the terms are often used interchangeably. Presentation/pocket folders include pockets on the inside for carrying documents and materials.
Are there options available for pockets to include documents or business cards?We can gladly print pockets on one or both sides, plus your choice of one or two business card slits free of charge.
Can my folders have a solid color background?Yes, we print folders in full color, so you are welcome to include as much or as little color as you would like in your design.
If I want color printed on the pockets, do I need to select the 4/0 ink option or the 4/4 ink option?4/0 means the outside plus the pockets of your folders will include full color. 4/4 means both the inside and outside of your folders will include full color. If you would like color on the pockets but not in the inside back of the folder, then simply select the 4/0 option.
Should I include my company’s logo or contact information in the design?Of course! Make sure to include your logo or contact information. It’s best if it’s integrated into the design.
What is UV coating?UV coating is a protective finish that is added to the outside of your file folders. It provides an extra shiny appearance to make your graphics really stand out.
