Do-It-Yourself-ers often enjoy developing their own print material, whether by investing in layout software or creating the designs by hand to speed up the layout process. Modern printing generally requires that a print job, at some point, gets turned into an electronic file, and technology eliminates the gap between your desk and our print shop.
The D.I.Y. method has two key benefits:
Use a Computer
Design software has gone mainstream in recent years so that professional graphic design and layout is within reach of most computer users. Or, for certain types of print jobs, the ubiquitous Microsoft Office (and other standard word processing programs) can suffice.
At one time, this was the way EVERY print job was prepared in order to make printing plates! Nowadays, creative customers will often provide a paste-up of their design, for our Graphics Dept. to turn into digital files for proofing and printing. This can be a useful method when you have a general idea of what components should be part of the layout, but you need to experiment with how they are arranged.
Simply tape or glue copies of your images to an appropriate page size, to give an impression of how they are to be set up, then our graphics department will take it from there.
Just a Sketch
This is the simplest method for providing some guidance on what your print design should be like. Draw out what you need—such as a rough draft of your new form, or a general design for your new logo—and let our graphics department set up a digital proof for you to review.
Get It Designed
You can see it in your mind and now you need to have that vision turned into a finished piece. If you prefer not to design it yourself, there are many options for you.
Budget Printing Graphics Department
Our graphics department handles print jobs of every shape and size, every day. We provide guidance and creative services through every stage of your print job, from concept through development and on to production. Whatever print project you have in mind, we can assist you with, working with you to create a professionally designed package that you can be proud of.

Proofing & Approvals
We need your "OK"! A key part of our business is ensuring that we're printing exactly what you hope for. Our focus is on the production, making the finished piece meet our standards. We always do our best to catch possible artwork errors (such as the mighty typo), but ultimately it is up to the customer to point out mistakes or desired changes.
That's why we like to highlight the importance of your approval. Before we begin production, we look to you to sign off the final proof—or to confirm you trust that we will do our best with the job. You can find more details in our conditions of sale.
Proofing via Email
We can send you a PDF of your print job, for you to review on screen or by printing it out yourself. Reply by email with any changes, and/or approve the artwork.
Hard Copy Proof
We can send you a hard copy (printout) of your print job, for you to review. Return the hard copy approved and/or with changes to be made. Fax proofing is also available.
Contact us about when you can come by to review your print job for changes and/or approval. We will have a digital printout for you to check over for changes or approval.
We can bring it to you! One of our commitments to you, our customer, is to ensure you get your print job where you need it.
