Quality Compliment Slips printed full colour and printed by Trade Printing UK
So why do you need a Compliment Slip from TradePrintingUK.com?
Compliment Slips are the cornerstone of your company's stationery. They are the perfect outlet for your brand and your image; like it or not, other folks will judge you or your company by how professional your compliment slip is. You use them to accompany samples, to send out cheques, plus they're probably used more than Letterheads so if they look shoddy, you can guarantee your potential customers will think your goods & services will be shoddy too. Companies that don't spend time on their compliment slips and other stationery can make their business look amateurish, home-made and out of touch with their specific marketplace. If your letterheads and compliment slips are shoddy your customers may well be put off and go elsewhere, so poorly designed stationery and compliment slips 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!
What type of paper is available for the Compliment Slips that TradePrintingUK.com produce?
We use two specific types of paper stock. One is 100gsm high-white Bond (Printspeed) for all our spot colour Pantone work with 1 and 2-colour jobs; the other is a 120gsm smooth high-white Bond for both an upgrade for the Spot colour work and of course, all the CMYK full-colour process Jobs to really enhance your company's image. Your stationery budget shouldn't force you to decide how many colours you can afford on your stationery's design and especially your Compliment Slips, but going down the Full Colour CMYK route definitely maximises the impact to your customer. We only print single-sided on the front side of the sheet currently.
Who are TradePrintingUK?
We are part of the Trade Printing Group Limited and were established in 1992. Based in Mallusk, Newtownabbey we pride ourselves in offering only the highest level of service and production quality to both the trade and retail.
We fully appreciate that the work we do is usually for Re-sale within the trade and our design and production teams realise that we are another manufacturing arm for your business and have pride in doing so.
We are only interested in helping you to meet YOUR customer's deadlines by providing fast turnarounds and quality printing to yourselves.
Our reputation is one of integrity - We will NEVER contact your customer directly!
We use strong, double-walled, generic white boxes. For packaging heavier items up to 30Kg we double-pack for even better transit strength.
Our mailing label is the only thing that will have a discreet return address (as PARCELFORCE require it obviously), but that will be easily removed once you receive it at your end. As far as your customer will be aware, their job was printed and produced BY YOU!
Artwork Templates Free Artwork Templates are available in our Templates Section. You can download the one that suits and make changes to it yourself or we can do it for you. Let us know what template you would like to use along with the details you want on it and we'll provide you with the artwork. Useful for Invoice Books, Purchase Orders, Delivery Notes, Receipt Books, Work Dockets etc.
Re-Ordering jobs at a later date
We keep existing jobs in our archives and the digital artwork backed up onto DVD-R discs for at least 4 years, making Re-Ordering jobs much easier as far as colour matching, sequential numbering continuation etc.
Just phone us with a description of the previous job, quantity required and your details and we'll do the rest.

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.
