Remember we can apply any of the finishes listed in ‘How to spec a digital job’ to the digital work, including lamination, foiling and spot varnish. Here is also the option for white or neon ink to be used.
Please note these are merely some suggestions as to the formats which we have found to perform well on our digital press. Your artwork and the stock you request will influence whether the job can be printed digitally at the Bristol Printer. Therefore it is often better to sent the artwork to us, even if it is an early stage, to get an idea of whether the job could be printed digitally.
If you need some advice on what format or stock is appropriate within a specific budget, just call our team and we’ll be happy to discuss your project.

- Quantities required
- Cover and Text paper stock (colour, weight and finish)
- Any print finishes you want to apply and turnaround times
