When printing a large area in black, select the 'Colour' option on your product description for a deeper black finish, rather than the 'Black and While' option.
When printing in ‘Black and White‘, black toner is used and therefore large areas of black will have a grey/light black finish. However, when selecting the ‘Colour‘ option, a combination of colours is used, and this creates a deeper black and opaque finish.
The weight of the paper is measured in ‘gsm’ which means grams per square metre. For example, 80gsm means 80 grams of paper per square metre, which is a thin paper, and 300gsm means 300 grams per square metre, which is a thin card.
The paper options available on this website are:
• 80gsm: A standard paper, suitable for basic ring binders, spiral bound documents, saddle stitched booklets or unbound sheets.
• 100gsm: Also a standard paper, suitable for hardback and paperback books.
• 120gsm & 130gsm: Slightly thicker, and suitable for all of the above products if you'd like a higher quality finish.
• 160gsm & 170gsm: Thick papers, perfect for a flyers or leaflets, or for more luxurious ring binders, spiral bound documents or unbound sheets.
• 300gsm: A thin card, perfect for certificates or photo prints.
• 400gsm: A thicker card, which we use for business cards.
The paper finishes we offer are:
• Plain - matt and bright white, better for large amounts of text.
• Satin - soft sheen, off-white, ideal for full coverage.
We offer a 'Same day production' option, which means that we will print and process your order on the same day if we receive it before 2pm Monday to Friday, or 11am Saturday.
If you require the fastest possible service, we recommend that you choose 'Same day production' and 'Next Day Guaranteed' delivery to receive your order the next day (or on Monday when ordering on a Saturday).
Our standard service is to produce your order in 2 working days from the day of your order. For example, if you order on a Tuesday, then your order will be produced Tuesday/Wednesday and despatched on Thursday. If you order on a Saturday, then your order will be produced Saturday /Monday and despatched on Tuesday.
Note: Delivery time is in addition to Production time, and our standard delivery service is Free Royal Mail Tracked. Although Royal Mail aim to deliver within 1 day of the despatch date, they do not guarantee this (and therefore we cannot guarantee the delivery timescale for this option).
This is possible by ordering before 2pm Monday to Friday and choosing 'Same day production' and Next Day Guaranteed delivery.
You can also use the 'Same day production' service until 11am on Saturday, and Next Day Guaranteed for delivery on Monday.
We produce orders on Saturdays, but not Sundays or over public holidays. So if you place your order on a Sunday it will be produced as though it has been placed on the following Monday.

In most cases, we recommend leaving at least 5mm margins all the way around, this ensures the text is safe.
For Paperback or Hardback books you may lose up to 8mm into the spine depending on the number of pages and stock chosen, so ideally the margins should be 15mm.
For Ring Binders and Spiral Bound, please allow 15mm, to make sure the holes will not punch your content.
