:: I HAVE A QUESTION ON THE ARTWORK AND SENDING FILES TO PRINT
Documents – up to A3 size (420mm x 297mm)
Name Card – 90 x 54mm (maximum size)
Yes you can. We provide offset printing for large-scale outputs.
We do not accept Microsoft Office files for certain items (eg. Namecards, buntings, etc).
- Adobe Acrobat(.pdf)
- Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
- Adobe Photoshop (.psd)
- Adobe Indesign (.indd)
- Microsoft Office documents (.doc, .xls, .ppt)
- High resolution image files (.jpeg / .jpg / .tiff)
Please refer to our ‘Guidelines for Artwork’ for more information.
You can either upload the files through our website here or you can always drop by one of our print shop branches at either Damansara Uptown, Menara UOA Bangsar, Wisma UOA Kuala Lumpur or Sooka Sentral (next to KL Sentral station).
We will not be able to proceed with printing if:
- all necessary files are not included on disk. Make sure to save all images and fonts together with your artwork.
- fonts are not outlined in Adobe Illustrator files.
- size of art on disk isn't in scale with final production size.
- Scanned/Digital images are too low-resolution for large format, fine line screen printing.
- Avoid using website images for print purposes.
Please read EXPrint’s ‘Guidelines for Artwork’ before sending your files to print.
Bleed is a printing term that refers to printing that goes beyond the edge of the sheet after trimming.
When you are creating your print material and you want the image or colour to reach the edges of your document size, create a 3mm bleed on all sides of the document.
CMYK is a colour model that is used when design and printing. It is abbreviation for Cyan , Magenta, Yellow and Key Black. With digital printing, our outputs are in CMYK.
No, not with digital printing. Pantone and other special colours are only available with offset printing.
Unfortunately, we do not give out the soft copy of any artwork created at EXPrint.
Do note that your artwork will be kept in our servers. So we will be able to retrieve your artwork easily should you need to print with us again.
We have a selection of good quality paper for your prints. These include textured paper and white recycled paper.
:: I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT EDITING MY FILES
Artworking means the task of creating the actual design or artwork to be sent to print. This also involves image manipulation/touch-ups, editing designs and recreating logos.
Yes we can. But do note that if we edit the file, we will charge you an additional sum for the artwork cost depending on the amount of time spent on editing it. This will range from RM50 to RM 80 per hour.
Unfortunately, we do not provide artwork creation alone as printing is our main priority.
Yes we can. We can help you either recreate your artwork or we can design it from scratch. For either of these services, we charge an additional fee on top of the printing costs. This will range from RM50 to RM 80 per hour.
:: I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT TIMELINES, DEADLINES AND DELIVERY
With digital printing we are able to provide you a quick turnaround time depending on the quantity of your prints and the finishing it requires.
To give you an idea, here are some examples of printing timelines:
1 – 3 boxes of name cards can be prepared for you within 1 hour.
10 page booklet with finishings in a quantity of 200 books can be produced within 2 working days.
This would depend on what we will need to artwork for you.
For example, recreating a new logo from a visual would take an hour or two. However, designing a booklet or leaflet could take a day or two.
Yes, we do delivery. Cost would depend on the weight of the printed material and location of where it will be delivered to.
