Why use us?

FAS have many years experience in print, from lithographic proofing to layout and design. We like to keep our customers happy and try to exceed expectations rather than meet them and customer service is important to us. We try to keep our prices as low as possible through careful choices with logistics, printing equipment, paper suppliers and staff. We don’t have a huge sales team that need to make 20% on every sale. We like to think that word of mouth from our lovely, loyal customers is enough.

Studies have suggested that print advertising is the most cost-effective form of marketing, with a higher ROI (return on investment) than most digital media. Combine this with our amazing prices and print is a great option for your business.

Nearly 76% of small businesses state that their ideal marketing is a combination of print and digital communications.
Printing can be more complex than it looks and the jargon can be daunting, below are a few explanations that will simplify that jargon and make it easier for you in the future.

    Working with You

    We work with our customers to provide them with the very best for their budget, find out how we can help you.

GSM

“grams per square metre”. Our standard paper weight for magazines or brochures is 150gsm, business cards are around 400 gsm, computer printers normally use 90gsm.

Gloss, Silk, and Matt coated paper.

These papers have a clay coating which is finished with different textures that are great for printing and give a fantastic vibrancy to the colour or black & white images.

Matt Uncoated paper.

A Matt paper with no noticeable finish which is ideal for writing on and is commonly used for letterheads and compliment slips.

pp. (Printed Pages).

4pp, 8pp, 12pp etc. As an example, an A4 piece of paper folded in half is a 4pp A5 because it has 4 individual sides, each one A5 in size. Therefore, any books you want must be multiples of four, ie., 4, 8, 12, 16, 20pp etc.

Colour

CMYK

Stands for ‘Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (black)”, the colour gamut used by printers which determine the range of colours that can be reproduced.
Computer screens work on an RGB – ‘Red, Green and Blue’ – colour gamut, which offers a larger range.
Some colours, particularly bright or fluorescent ones are not achievable when using a CMYK printing process and prints will look different to how they appear on a screen. This is why it is important that your artwork is designed in CMYK as RGB colours will be converted to their closest CMYK substitute.

Lamination

Lamination finishes work with a plastic coating in various finishes that gives your work a rich brighter look and more protection from everyday use.

Matt lamination

Is a subdued finish that softens colours and adds a smooth texture, ideal for a sophisticated, modern look.

Gloss lamination

Is a high gloss finish that is ultra shiny. It makes colours vibrant, rich punchy, ideal for photographic images.

Soft touch lamination

Gives a very nice feel likened to the texture of a peach. Colours appear deeper and richer than with Matt lamination. A finish that gives your print the utmost in luxury.

Paper Size

As a customer, you don’t normally have to worry about paper size unless it’s to choose a size of poster or – on a smaller scale – a size of booklet or flyer.
Starting with the most commonly used size – A4 (210mm x 297mm), you just double the shortest edge to take you to the next size which is A3 (420mm x 297mm) or half the longest edge to take you down to A5 (210mm x 148mm). So from A5 we go down to A6 (105mm x 148mm) and then A7 (105mm x 74mm). From A3 we go to A2 (420mm x 584mm) and then A1 (584mm x 820mm) and finally to A0 (820mm x 1168mm). There are of course other larger sizes but these are less common in everyday print and you probably won’t need them, however, there are commonly used smaller and ‘different’ sizes such as DL (210mm x 99mm) and business card (55mm x 85mm).

Short Run printing.

For short runs – normally up to 500 copies – we supply digitally printed copies, which gives us great flexibility for customers requirements so that you only need to buy the quantity you need.

Lithographic printing.

For everything over 500 copies, lithography is the world standard for high volume printing and the more you buy, the cheaper the unit price becomes. We use this method for large runs of printed material.

Poster printing.

Never before have large format posters been (financially) within reach of the smaller business, but with our amazingly low prices, A0 or smaller posters are real tools to be utilised by businesses of any size.

Roller banners.

Our roller banners are some of the most cost effective around and with one of our fantastic designs, you will be ready for any marketing opportunity that comes your way.

Vinyl banners (inside or outside).

If it’s an economical, large format sign that your company needs, then a vinyl banner can be an amazing addition to your advertising arsenal. We can supply some of the cheapest ‘bespoke’ designed banners in the south of England and in vinyl weights from 440gsm through 350gsm mesh, to 700gsm double sided banners.

Foam board 3 or 5mm.

For a more permanent looking sign foam board fits the bill for many uses.
It is very light and can be stuck to walls using double sided tape, or framed to appear more pleasing and substantial.

Aluminium Di-bond signage.

Di-bond is two sheets of aluminium with a polyvinyl core, which makes for a very high-quality sign which will withstand the forces of nature for a long time and still look as good as new.
The signs are supplied with screw holes for fitting.
