We usually print and bind using A3, A4, A5 or A6. However, we are able to trim products to bespoke sizes between these as required.

Pantone: This is an industry trademark for colour standards, colour reproduction etc and ensures quality control when specific colours, tones or shades are required.
Crop Marks: These are also known as Tick Marks and are the marks placed on the page to indicate the edge of the paper. They are needed as a guide when cutting documents to their finished size.
Encapsulation: A form of protective enclosure for paper that involves placing the item between two sheets of clear film that are then sealed around all edges.
