How many invitations should I order?
We recommend printing at least 10% more than you think you’ll need. Adding a few to the initial run is much less expensive than having to go back to press, because Aunt Vicky decided you needed to invite Great Uncle Saul. Plus, you’ll want a few extras for keepsakes and photo styling!
How will my invitations be printed?
We offer both digital and offset printing options. We recommend digital printing for short, full color runs and offset printing for spot color designs. You can even throw a foil stamp (or two) on there!
Can I see a printed proof of my invitations?
Sure! We offer color accurate hard copy proofs for digital, full color jobs. We cannot show you a color accurate hard copy proof for spot color jobs, but we can print a digital proof for you to review your paper choice and layout.
I don’t see the size I want. Can I do a custom size invitation?
Yes!! We love custom orders, and can’t wait to see what you have in mind. Send it our way and we’ll get you a custom quote!
How much will thermography add to my invitation investment?
Nada! Thermography is a beautiful finish, offered free of charge on offset, spot color jobs. If you’re wanting to pair spot color thermography with digital printing or flat ink, then there will be a little added cost. Contact us today for a custom quote!
What are common sizes for enclosure cards?
Everything we do is custom, so the size options are endless! A few common enclosure sizes to include with a 5 x 7 invitation are 3.5 x 4.875, 4.25 x 5.5, 4.5 x 6.25.
Do you offer letterpress?
Yep! All letterpress projects require a custom quote. Contact us today, and we’ll get some info over to you stat!
What is the minimum quantity I can order?
One. We have a wide array of equipment designed to meet all of your needs, from one copy to several thousand.
What types of electronic files can you take?
We support both Mac and PC files, and while we take just about any type of file you can think of, here is a sampling of the most common file types:
Adobe Acrobat (PDFs)
Microsoft Power Point
Image Files (TIFF, EPS, JPG, JPEG, GIF, etc.)
If you don’t see your program or file type listed above, contact us; we usually have it.
Can I e-mail my job to you?
Yes. We gladly accept e-mailed files. Check your email limitations on file size to make sure it doesn’t exceed your limit. Be sure to include contact information in your e-mail so we can reach you if we have any questions. We will respond to your email within 20 minutes during the hours of 8am – 6pm Central Time or the next business day. If for some reason you don’t receive a reply within about 20 minutes, either try resending, send another email, or call us. Here is how you reach us: WeCanHelp@MingoPress.com or by phone 855.MY MINGO (855.696.4646)
Do you produce your own printing, or outsource it?
Yes, we do our own printing. We have the full line of equipment necessary to handle all of your offset printing and copying needs. From black & white flyers to full color brochures, we’re on it. If for some reason you are requesting an item which we cannot produce ourselves (such as custom die cutting) we have alliances set up with local companies to ensure you receive the quality and service you deserve.
Do you charge extra for rush jobs?
No. We have no extra charges for rush jobs. In order to meet your time deadlines, some jobs may have to be produced using a different process, which could alter the price. We will always inform you of these differences prior to starting your project.
Why does the color on my proof not match my Pantone color?
Pantone ink colors are achieved by mixing designated inks together (similar to paint). Your proof is printed with a different process using a digital color machine. These proofs are designed to be checked for spelling, information correctness, size and placement; not exact color matching. Color matching can only be done with a Pantone swatch book.
