SAGE Invoices and Statements, SAGE Line 50 Business Forms plus Application Forms available

So why do you need a Business Form from TradePrintingUK.com?
Business Forms are the cogs of your company's workflow. Business Forms are the functional part of managing your business that need to be fit-for-purpose, to help your business grow. But like it or not, if your business forms are not just for internal use but are for use by your customers too then folks will judge you by how professional your business forms are. They come in many flavours starting from accounting usage with software-overprinted forms like SAGE invoices and Statements, to human resources uses like Job Application Forms, as well as other tailored printed products for use in medical, sales orders, service tickets, management forms, customer service forms, proposal forms, receipt forms and more.
If they look shoddy, you can guarantee they'll think your goods & services will be shoddy too. Companies that don't spend time on their business forms and other stationery can make their business look amateurish, home-made and out of touch with their specific marketplace, or if internal can dramatically reduce workflow to your employees by being badly designed, so poorly designed forms within your company can severely affect your business and cost you money and a lot more than having something beautifully designed and professional in the first place. Don't scrimp on professional design either!

We mainly use a specific types of paper stock - 100gsm high-white Bond (Printspeed) - for all our spot colour Pantone work with 1 and 2-colour jobs; We can print on both sides and heavier types of paper are also available (£POA).

Terms and Conditions
Before ordering from TradePrintingUK.com you should read our Terms and Conditions.
Payment With Order
Due to our cheap printing prices, we only offer our services on a purely PAYMENT-WITH-ORDER* basis. Thus payment is required before production is started. Alternatively if you work on a ProForma-based invoice system whereby you've to raise an Purchase Order Number first before anything can proceed then we can work with you on that too. We can accept all types of regular UK Credit Card / Debit Cards (with exception to American Express), or you can use a BACS / CHAPS transfer, but that will require 3-4 additional working days' clearance. Business cheques will still require 6 working days for clearance before production begins. Our bank details are available on request from our Accounts dept.
*Printing.com franchises have a special arrangement in place. Please contact our Accounts dept for further details.
Credit / Debit Cards -- instant payment (you'll get up to 45 days credit with your Credit Card anyway) and production is initiated from day of payment. Personal / Business Cheques -- 6 working days' clearance required before production proceeds BACS transfer -- 3-4 working days' clearance required before production proceeds CHAPS transfer -- 1-2 working days' clearance required before production proceeds FPS transfer -- 1 working day clearance required.

I've been working in RGB on CorelDraw or other non-Photoshop software. Why do the colours in the job look differently on my monitor when you send me the pre-production proof?
The colour gamut that is produced by rays on light (in RGB) on your monitor is much much wider than is physically achievable with any printing inks, which use a much smaller gamut.
What Bleed do you use?
If you have an image, text or other artwork that extends right to the edge of the page, the final dimensions must extend off the page and beyond the final trimmed dimensions of the job.
For NCR jobs -- add 3mm to each side (See further notes in our 'Supplying Artwork' section).
For Spot Colour jobs, add 3mm to each side.
For CMYK jobs like Flyers & Stationery, please add 1.5mm bleed to each side.
I want to have a Silver or Gold-type colour. Do TradePrintingUK.com use those inks?
We don't print with either Pantone 877 Silver or Pantone 871 Gold metallic inks. But there are workarounds to achieve something similar. There'll be no metallic fleck though.
To achieve Imitation Silver - use a tint of Black around 25%. You could also try a linear blend from 25% - 50% Black.
To achieve ImitationGold (out of CMYK process), we use a great full colour mix in the relevant products of 29C, 42M, 69Y which achieves delightful results.
Any good design tips?
1) Try and keep any important text you have (like addresses, phone numbers etc. at least 5-10mm away from the trimmed edge. That will allow for guillotine tolerance from the top of the paper pile to the bottom.
2) Don't print with white borders on your artwork. It just looks bad and will never be symmetrically even no matter how carefully it is printed & guillotined.
3) Note that Photoshop's default Black & White (the diagonal black & white blocks on the main tool bar on the left) aren't actually that. The White in that swatch is actually "Page White" meaning 1C, 2M, 2Y. The Black is a 4-plate Black by default of 91C, 81M, 81Y, 91K. So make up your own "Pure White" -- 0C 0M 0Y 0K and add that Swatch to the Swatches palette; and two different Blacks -- "Pure Black" -- 0C 0M 0Y 100K, and "SuperBlack" (for large areas of flat Black colour) - 50C, 0M, 0Y, 100K.
4) For Photoshop -- work in either Grayscale mode exclusively to make individual mono plates, or in CMYK only (just in Magenta & Black plates/channels). Do not work in RGB! That is for website use only.
5) In Illustrator, make sure you Create Outlines before submitting any jobs, or creating PDFs etc.
6) Work at a resolution of 350dpi for all design work, that way any fine text weights or small sizes (4pt to 6pt) will print much more clearly.
