Spectrum can help your work look great.

  • Photoshop files in RGB please, j-pegs preferred (they are cheaper too!)
  • Microsoft Office software. Spectrum offer a large range of output and printing services from Office.
  • Set up your documents for A4 or A3 sized paper.
  • Use standard windows fonts to avoid changes to layout or font substitutions.
  • If using WORD - please avoid using the SPACE bar repeatedly - instead use TAB or INSERT - page break - to manage document flow - as otherwise your document will appear different on different computers and will print out funny !
  • Our charges are based on a per file handling charge - so cut & paste all your chapters together into one big file or we will have to charge you a handling fee for each individual file.
  • We will give you a few seconds to check layout of the document - and then we print.
  • We cannot let you edit or ammend your work in Spectrum - we don't have enough pc's, time or space; - so make sure you have got it right before asking us to print.
  • If you are using arabic/greek/mathmatical sysmbols please tell us.
  • If you have created a document that is not A4/A3 we may refuse to handle/print.
  • If including photos/graphs/pictures please ensure that these are RGB at 200dpi at final print size (or less) - and NO MORE THAN 300 dpi.
  • Excessive file sizes will not produce better print quality but will greatly increase printing times and will be subject to extra charges.

Laminating / Encapsulation

Spectrum offer a 5 minute encapsulation service for sized from ID up to A2

Encapsulation makes your paperwork very hardwearing & durable and is ideal for menus, signage, as dry-wipe charts, passes etc that get heavy daily usage.

We do not recommend lamination for valuable paperwork such as certificates, old photos, or historic documents as the encapsulation will slowly destroy the contents over a period of many years. You can copy your document and laminate that, and archive the original between paper in a cool dry dark place where it will keep best.
