General information regarding paper weights, finishes and grades is available in the help link next to the paper option – just click the question mark in the small blue circle. You may also refer to the Paper Selection Information section in the Help Center for additional paper selection details. If you are interested in a paper not listed on our website, call 1-800-707-9903, or contact us at email@example.com.Q) Can I print my project on uncoated paper?
A) We print on coated paper as a standard selection for all of our products except business cards, where we offer a choice of coated and uncoated paper stocks. If you want your project to print on an uncoated paper, please call us at 1-800-707-9903, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that when printing on uncoated paper, we cannot guarantee color match due to the tendency of uncoated papers to absorb more ink than our coated papers. Coated papers will generally yield a superior result for projects that require moderate or heavy ink coverage. Some projects can be printed on C1S (Coated 1 Side) paper stocks. The same issues apply to the uncoated side of a C1S that apply to any uncoated paper. Also, C1S stocks tend to be more prone to paper curl than stocks that are coated on both sides. We are not responsible for paper curl that occurs when printing on C1S papers.Q) I don’t see perfect binding as an option. Does Conquest Graphics offer perfect binding?
A) We don’t offer perfect binding as a standard binding option, but if you have a project that requires perfect binding, we can certainly do it for you. Please contact us at email@example.com
or call us at 1-800-707-9903
if you have a perfect bound project or have questions about perfect binding. Please note that although perfect binding is a durable, high-quality binding method, we have no control over how perfect bound products are used or handled after they are delivered, and we are not responsible for page pull out, or cracking of perfect bound products.
Q) Will my printed product match my monitor and/or a proof that I print from my color printer?
A) Probably not. Monitors display colors in the RGB (additive) color space, and printing is based on the CMYK (subtractive) color space. Colors can shift dramatically when transformed from one space to another. Monitors are not well-suited for making critical color judgments or evaluations, but they are perfectly acceptable for making basic color and layout decisions (i.e. If you specify an object on a page as green, it should appear as some shade of green). Color ink jet or desktop laser printers are generally poor predictors of offset printed colors. They have no ability to be calibrated, and color consistency is highly variable (ever notice how crummy your ink jet output looks when the ink cartridges are low?). Your printed pieces may not match a monitor or an ink jet print, but rest assured that it will definitely look better! Q) How long will it take to get my proof?
A) You should receive an email with a link to your proof within 1 business day of uploading your file. Remember to check the box telling us that uploading is complete! Q) How long will it take to receive my order?
A) Most jobs ship 5 to 7 business days after proof approval. You have the ability to request Rush production on some print jobs, which reduces production time by 1-2 business days. Shipping can take anywhere from 1 to 5 days depending on your location and the shipping option you select. Please refer to our Turnaround Time calculator for more details.
Q) Will I always receive exactly the quantity I order? Q) If I have a mailing list, can Conquest Graphics mail my project?
A) In most cases, we will ship you a slightly higher quantity than you ordered, at no additional charge. Sometimes, we may ship a slightly smaller quantity than you ordered. Printing industry trade standards allow for overages and underages of up to 5%. If you will be sending your print order to a mailing processor or need a guaranteed quantity, we suggest that you order at least 5% over the minimum quantity you need.
We digitally weigh all orders that leave our facilities to ensure that the correct number of pieces are delivered to our customers, or to outside mail processors. We are not responsible for errors, waste, or spoilage that occurs at outside operations like mail processors.
A) Absolutely, yes! Please refer to our Mailing Services page for more details. You can include your mailing list as part of the file upload process available after ordering. Q) How can I decide which CMYK colors to use, and how will they look when printed?
A) You can purchase a Pantone Swatch book. Q) Should I perform my own trapping and/or imposition?
A) We ask that you please do not set traps, or attempt to impose your files. Our prepress system automatically calculates optimum trapping settings and imposition. Please refer to the File Preparation Guide for more details. Q) Where can I find someone to design my project, or supply photography?
