Printing FAQS

Brand – pure and simple
  1. Why do you offer a print service?
    Our customers demand it. We offer a full turnkey solution, from design and artwork to print and distribution of the final product. We provide a true end to end solution where the design and artwork we create is optimised for the print suppliers we intend to use.
  2. Wouldn’t it be better to source my own print supplier?
    Sourcing print estimates and creating a specification for the print enquiry can be time consuming and prone to error if you do not know the processes and procedures.
  3. How can you be so competitive on print compared to sourcing my print requirement direct?
    We have buying power with a range of suppliers and we target only the most professional of those for your particular project.
  4. What guarantees do I have?
    If you commission a print project through Naked Naartjie® we offer a full guarantee on quality of print. If you are unhappy with the final printed product we will offer to collect the item and reprint it free of charge. We are experts in these fields, things rarely go wrong, but if they do we will put them right quickly and efficiently, however, you decide to source your own print then Naked Naartjie® is not liable for any problems and we offer no guarantee.
  5. I’ve had a cheaper quote will you be able to match it?
    We should be able to match any like for like quote, however, there are certain circumstances that we cannot. Some suppliers will cut corners such as printing on substandard equipment, material and finishing which reduces quality and increases delivery time. Great design work is often compromised by budget printing. In most cases you get what you pay for and if it’s cheap the chances are it will look that way.
  6. What is print management and how can it benefit my company?
    Print management is a service we offer that allows printing bulk items and delivering them on demand. This saves costs, negates the need for storage and ensures consistency across multiple print jobs.
  7. Do you offer a print only service or must I commission artwork and design?
    Naked Naartjie® can help you with a total service or only the services you require.
  8. Why is digital print inexpensive on lower runs?
    Generally digital print is cheaper on short run material due lack of plate making (not required) and zero make ready time. Digital presses are not as refined as traditional litho presses and as such the print quality is inferior, however cost savings on small jobs can be substantial.
  9. What is security print?
    Security print is a specialised subsection of the publishing industry focused on printing sensitive material such as company cheques. All printed material is accounted for and delivered by secure transport. Naked Naartjie® takes all the necessary steps to ensure your artwork is secured with special indelible insignias that are difficult to reproduce and therefore counterfeit.
  10. What files do you accept and how do I supply them?
    We accept all industry standard artwork files on both Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows PC platforms, including Adobe PDF (HI RES), Adobe Indesign, Adobe Illustrator, QuarkXpress, Microsoft Publisher etc. For jobs that have been commissioned for print only (not design and/or produced by Naked Naartjie®) we also require hard copy proofs in order to provide a guarantee on the printed items. Files can be supplied via FTP, Email, CD or DVD. Give Naked Naartjie® a try – get a print quote today!
