Hey Folks, This is my first thread and so Hello to All... this seems like a really great community to be part of - can't believe its taken me so long to find... So, I have my first bit of freelance work creating a flyer and business card for a Hair Stylist. I'm very new to the world of printing for this kind of work (i originally started studying as a photographer so have a foundation of some printing processes etc). The client wants a double sided A5 flyer that can be folded into an oyster / bus pass holder (3 half folds that gives 8 equal sections). I've looked into the whole Z-card thing - and its not really what were after - personally they remind me of the 90's tourist information maps and also it would be extra unwanted cost. So what i'm looking at is using (uncoated?) black paper stock for the design to be printed onto. The background colour is an off black 90k which due to the high amount of surface area would be better to have as the paper, then the secondary colour for most of the illustration is orange C - 0, M - 35, Y - 85, K - 0 and the text is white. I need a paper thats thick enough to hold the colours without revealing through from the otherside but also thin enough to be folded and without the folds 'cracking'. I'm thinking a sort of rough/textured paper (a bit like the sugar paper is used to get at primary school). Would i be best finding the paper myself and supplying to the printers - are there any decent (but not crazy expensive) printing services that could offer this paper along with the printing. Am i right in thinking that as i'm after white ink for the text - it would need to be digital/litho/screen printed rather than offset. From researching into the possibilities i'm feeling a little at sea by the amount of options and what would be the best direction to go in. Any help / suggestions with this would be much appreciated. Also - i was wondering who might be best to print (a) the flyers and (b) the business cards - Be handy if both can be printed by the same printers. For the business cards we're looking into letterpress / hot or stamp foil / spot uv / custom shape.... onto perhaps triple layer black card (with middle layer being the orange thats used in the flyer) Is there a UK equivalent to RockDesign? Sorry to throw so many questions out there and apologies if i'm getting things mixed up and using 'newbie terminology', i'm quite happy to research into these things but its also reassuring to have some advice and pointers from people that are in the know and have been doing this longer than myself. So, Hello to you all again (now that im here i might start popping up a bit) and thanks in advance for any comments / suggestions.
