Production & Delivery Times
Will your order be ready to dispatch in according to your specified turnaround time?
There is a strong possibility as over 75% of our products are manufactured and ready for dispatch within the estimated production time.
How do you find out how long your order will take to produce?
Check out the product page for the product you have ordered - where you will find the production time is stated. You will see that the production time will vary depending on the size of the order (as it does take a bit longer to manufacture larger quantities).
What do you need to do before we send the order to production?
Once the artwork has been prepared (either by you or our design team) you will be emailed an artwork proof. We need you to approve the artwork proof before we can send the order to production. This applies to all orders - whether they are new or repeat orders - and ensures that the correct artwork will be printed.
When will your order be ready to dispatch?
All of our quoted production times are based on the artwork proof being approved. All production times stated exclude delivery time and are based on normal business days of Monday to Friday and do not include Saturday, Sunday or NSW public holidays.
If you have any questions at all about our turnaround times please call us.

Boards & Signs
Boards and Signs are by far the most popular form of signage that is available. They are perfect for real estate signs, events, elections, building site signs and more, our signs are a budget friendly option that can get your name out to your clients and customers in a flash! Need to order a large amount? Talk to our team about a bulk discount.
Signs are so common and widespread that we generally don’t tend to notice them. That’s their secret weapon, they are effective because we don’t realize their power. A good sign should not only inform about the product you are selling but also identify your business, its location and provide the right image and visual identity for your company. They are also a vital source of information for your customers when you relocate your business. So don’t hesitate and order your high quality event signs with us!
PlusPrint offers you the possibility to print various types of signs and boards. Whether you need typical instructive signs for your company, visually attractive signs for a trade show or a complex system of signage for a mass event, we can give it all to you! Depending on your individual needs and requests, we print on various kinds of materials and substrates such as illustration board, coreflute, acrylic, plexiglass or foamcore using our cutting edge offset and digital presses. As experienced professionals, we will guide you through the whole process of planning and printing to make sure that all your needs and requirements are satisfied.
What is CMYK?
In printing, the standard colour mode used in CMYK. CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black) represent the four colours used to create every other colour available. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the colour mode before sending to your printer. Programs like Photoshop use a different colour mode, RGB, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; but is a more accurate representation of the final result once printed.
We require your files to be uploaded in an industry standard format. We accept the following file formats: PDF, TIF, JPG, EPS. We also accept packaged Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop files. We accept Microsoft Word, Publisher, Powerpoint Documents or similar files by converting them to an industry standard graphic format like PDF. By uploading your artwork in one of these formats, you ensure a smooth setup and proofing process, that allows us to maintain the best quality for your print job and ensure that you receive it in a timely manner.
Rich Black vs 100% Black
Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black. Instead, setup your text as 100% Black (0% Cyan, 0% Magenta, 0% Yellow, 100% Black).
Outline your Fonts
We might not have the same fonts that you have on your computer. To avoid any issues with printing, it is best to outline your fonts. When saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.
A Celloglaze is a thin layer of plastic that is laminated ontop of the paper. This adds to the durability and vibrancy of your prints. Celloglazes are available in a Matte, Gloss, or Velvet (Looks like Matte, but has a velvet texture). Our special finishes include Foil, Spot UV, Raised Spot UV, or Embossing. You should choose the best finishes based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your Business Cards with a pen, do not choose Gloss Celloglaze, because it will cause the pen ink to smudge. In this case a Matte or Uncoated paper stock would suit best.
The paper is the most important part of your print job, and should be the first thing you decide. For example, a Postcard would be more effective on a card stock, rather than a lightweight paper. The main difference between a Card and Paper is thickness. Paper thickness is measured in GSM (Grams per Square Metre). Generally speaking, anything between 0-200GSM is classified as ‘Paper’, whereas anything over 200gsm is classified as ‘Card’. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Pack today.
