Printing FAQ's

1Can you print pieces that are different than the standard formats that you offer?
To keep things simple, please place a separate order for each different printed piece you want produced. For example, if you want 3 different 11x17 brochures, please place 3 orders. Obviously, the price for 3,000 of one brochure is not the same as the price for 1,000 each of 3 different brochures, so it would be better to get a custom price quote.
2What kind of paper will my job be printed on?
We have several paper types available, depending on what product type you are ordering. The individual pricing pages show available standard options, and many other custom options are available. Contact us for details.
3Will you match a sample I print out on my own printer, or a previously printed sample?
At PrintingForLess.com, part of the way we offer fast turnaround and low pricing is by printing to a "pleasing color" standard, using standard ink densities. Therefore, there is no guarantee that your finished piece will approximate your printed sample. This is due in part to the widely varying results from different output devices including inkjet and laser printers, continuous tone proofing devices, high-resolution film-based proofs, and different than true offset lithography. Even from one commercial printing firm to another, there can be significant differences in results. In particular, inkjet and laser prints are known to look substantially different than true offset lithography.
