Pre-Production Samples

If you’re looking to print a new design or test a product, we offer a pre-production samples service. With digital printing, we offer low cost one-off samples printed in full colour. This includes tea towels, cushion covers, bags, aprons and more.

If you’d like to see one of our pre-printed samples, please use the form on the contact us page and we’ll post them to you.


Digitally Printed Pre-Production Samples

If you’re placing your first digital order you may wish to have a pre-production sample produced first so you can check that you are happy your design. We don’t make any adjustments to your artwork – we’ll print in CMYK as per the file you send to us.
