Brochure printing - FAQs

Can I see instant prices for brochures?

Can you crash fold from A3 to A5?
Yes we can, we do not however have prices for this on our website. Please contact us for more details and to receive a custom quote.

How do I get a quote for larger quantities?
Our website only gives prices up to 1000 copies for digitally printed brochures. If you would like larger quantities please contact us for a custom offset quote.

How do I supply my artwork?
Please supply artwork for brochures as a two page press ready PDF with a minimum of 3mm bleed and crop lines.

For items folded in half the cover should be on the right hand side of page one and the back page on the left hand side. We suggest making the cover side 1mm bigger so that a small amount of this flows on the back page once folded. Page two is then the inside pages.

For roll fold A4 to DL brochures, please supply as a two page PDF and make each section as follows:
Page one - left section (inner flap) 98mm / middle section (back page) 99mm / right section (cover) 100mm
Page two - left section 100mm / middle section 99mm / right section 98mm
The cover section should be 1mm bigger so that it overlaps the entire brochure once folded. The inner flap is 1mm smaller than the middle panel so that is is shorter and folds inside easily. Please note the dimensions are smaller from left to right on page one but the opposite on page two as this is how it works once a page is flipped horizontally.

Do you have a design templates for brochures?
At this stage we do not offer design templates, it is something we plan to explore in the future. If you would like to use a template we recommend Canva or Crello. Download our artwork specifications from to see how you need to prepare and output files ready to print in both these applications.

Can I print a border on my brochures?
We really don't recommend printing borders on brochures. We have a shift tolerance of 1mm for brochures. This means prints can shift in any direction during printing and trimming by up to 1mm, we also some times need to adjust the folding locations. When borders are printed this means some brochure sections will look asymmetrical.

Can I have a sample print of my brochures before going ahead with the full order?
We do not supply printed samples by default, we print directly from your PDF files. If you would like a price for printing a test sample print only, scroll to the very bottom of our quantity dropdown in our quote builder and select ‘sample print’. The cost of a sample print is basically all time for setup and finishing, plus postage. Unfortunately it takes us as long to setup and trim one item as it does a whole pile.

Can I have a proof?
We do not supply proofs unless artwork amends are required prior to printing. We print directly from you press ready PDF files.

I have printed brochures with you before, do you keep artwork on file?
Yes we keep all press ready artwork on file. If you have placed an order in the last 5 years you should be able to login to your account with an old quote or reference number and your email address and download any artwork from previous orders. If your artwork isn't in your online account, let us know and we will take a look in our archive for you.

I have a PDF of an old brochure but I want to change the details on it, can you do this or do I have to go back to my designer?
In most cases it will be quicker and cheaper to go back to your designer if possible. Changing text in the master design file is very quick an easy for a designer to do. If for some reason your designer can't do this, we may be able to edit your PDF. This all depends how the artwork has been setup and saved. If the text hasn't been converted to outlines and we have the font used on file yes we can make changes. If the font has been flattened or we don't have the font used then we will need to replace the font with something similar in order to make changes. The cost of us making these changes is dependent on what needs to be done. We estimate layout costs after reviewing your files and requirements. For more details please contact us.

Can I get a sample of the papers you offer?
Absolutely, we have a recycled paper sample pack that contains every paper we have listed on this website. Sample packs costs $10, however this is refunded when you place an order. Request a pack from here:
