How to Customize Large to Small Scale Print Products

Follow these steps to create the custom printing product you need for every kind of promotion: 

 

Order an offset printing or sign product. 

  • Offset printing is the technique used to transfer an inked image from a plate to a rubber blanket, and then onto the printing surface. It ensures high-quality output for large quantities. It is the method used for bulk printing orders such as brochures, flyers, posters, postcards, and business cards. 
  • Sign printing is for larger format displays such as banners, window clings, yard signs, plastic signs, flags, and magnets. The sign you print will depend on the material and the size.  

 

Combine width and length specs that will garner attention at a glanceWidths start from 2” up to 26”. Heights also go from 2” to as tall as 18”. If you want to see how the final design will appear before it’s printed, select “Wait – I want to receive and approve a free PDF proof” after uploading your file. 

 

You can also use our online design tool to load a blank canvas in the size selected. 

 

Print on sturdy paper or cardstock to showcase the reliability or luxury of your brand. Promoting a new product line or a store opening to a bigger audience? Let customers feel they can trust your company with thick paper or cardstock. Coat paper with elegant matte or gloss finishes highlighting the premium quality of your items. Below are the sturdiest options available for paper and cardstock: 

  • 80 lb. paper has a similar feel to a magazine cover. It’s slightly thicker than standard paper and comes in gloss or matte coating to protect the surface. 
  • 100 lb. paper is a little thicker than most magazine covers but a little thinner than cardstock. Recommended for brochures, flyers, and other promotions customers can keep on hand.  
  • 14 pt. cardstock is the standard material used for business cards. It can withstand multiple handling and comes in coatings that protect it from fingerprints 
  • 16 pt. cardstock is slightly thicker than the 14 pt. Recommended for business cards or other promotional tools handed out to VIP clients. It gives them the impression you value their business, while also putting your best “face” forward in introducing yourself. 
  • 17 pt. cardstock is the most rigid cardstock available and comes in an uncoated, writable surface. It has the most upscale vibe and the elegant texture gives it that extra high-end feel.  

 

Print a set of cut-to-size stickers or labels to display indoors. Need a set of individual labels to quickly apply on your products? Order 70 lb. label in matte, gloss, or high-gloss UV so that your item and company name are easy to read from a glance.  

 

Signs come in the following materials, depending on how they’re displayed: 

  • For paper signs: semi or high gloss that suit temporary displays in frames or inside the store. 
  • Vinyl in standard 13 oz., 15 oz, or 9 oz. mesh that lasts outdoors. The mesh is built to withstand wind, while the 13 and 15 oz. last years on display outside. 
  • Static cling or perforated adhesive vinyl for window clings. The removable structure makes it perfect for temporary signs and for reapplying in other areas. 
  • Magnetic stock for placing on your car while it’s making deliveries. 
  • Canvas for high-resolution photos or artwork displays. 
  • Adhesive fabric for displays on walls and other interiors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and excellent results! I won't blame Uprinting for the ordering mistake I made. For some reason I got off track and ordered unmounted instead of mounted prints. Anyway, I got it done locally. But the prints are amazing and we are thankful for their speed and beautiful results. Will try them again, but will probably get online help when ordering.
