We will be closed Monday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day. Have a safe holiday! STOCK UPDATE - Due to (never-ending) paper shortages nationwide, stock availability changes daily. Have no fear! Team Picasso is dedicated to overcoming these obstacles. Thank you for your patience.
Corporate or personal, folded or flat, one-color or five, coated or not. Hallelujah.
Need help deciding which paper will be perfect for your project? Have no fear, the Mingo Press Paper Guide is here! Not seeing the paper you’ve been longing for? Give us a shout. We love sourcing the special stuff.
Interested in adding a special coating, but need a little guidance? There’s a Special Coatings Guide for that.
Standard Turnaround Time: 1 to 4 Business Days
We’re pretty flexible with our turnaround times. Tell us your deadline in the notes section below, and we’ll do what we can to make it happen. Did we mention we never charge extras for rush jobs?
?The number of unique versions being printed at the same time. Need four different notecards for four different brands? That’s four originals. Still not sure? Give us a call and we’ll walk you through the process. #TEAMEFFORT
?Touch it. Smell it. AHHH...PAPER. You can read all about the stocks we keep on our floor in the Mingo Press Paper Guide, linked above. Not seeing the paper you’ve been longing for? Give us a shout - we love sourcing special stuff.
?White is never just white, are we right? See our Mingo Press Paper Guide linked above for the skinny on which white is right for you. If you’re in more of a Berrylicious Blue mood, give us a shout. We love custom orders.
? Flat size refers to the size of the paper before we create the fold of your dreams. Don’t see the size you need? Call/Chat/Email or request a custom quote. We’ll make sure you get the size you need!
?While lots of projects print in full color (CMYK), we understand the beauty of a well designed duotone and the importance of accurate spot colors for brand consistency. If you are printing in spot colors, including the PMS numbers in the notes section would earn you lots of brownie points with our crew.
?Beautiful, eye catching colors like PMS 877 silver or PMS 806 neon pink (or any other color in the 800’s, 8,000’s or 10,000’s) can add pizazz to an otherwise ordinary piece. Not sure if your piece is a good fit? Send it over in our free file check. Let’s chat about it.
?Our standard radius is 1/4” and rounding all four corners. If you prefer to round outside the box, just include your preferred radius and comments in the notes section and we’ll see what we can do!
?Tear off with ease. Microperfs are available upon request, and fancy perfs that stop before the end of the sheet require a custom quote.
?Do we score all papers before folding? No. Do we score all papers that need to be scored before folding, you betcha! Got a fold not listed? Want a more in-depth discussion on scoring paper in the 21st century? Chat/Call/Email or request a custom quote. We’ve got lots of ideas.
?Gloss, dull, soft, or a combo of both - special coatings are the bees knees. See our Guide to Coatings link in the product description above for our tips on how best to utilize these special treatments.
? Add the same special coating to the back, or jazz it up with a combo.
?We’ve selected the perfect blank envelopes to match all of your printed products. Take a look at our Mingo Press Paper Guide linked above to see what envelopes match your stock selection. Not a fan of the pairing? No sweat. Contact us for a custom quote.
?Our real life team of experts will look over your file to make sure everything will print beautifully. We can either send you a PDF proof for one last look-see or overnight a hardcopy. In most cases, these hardcopy proofs will be color accurate and trimmed/finished to size.
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.
Where are your price breaks?
We have no set price breaks. As a general rule of thumb, with every hundred extra you order, your per piece price will be less. The more you get, the less you pay.
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.
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.
I need to design a direct mail piece. I have no idea where to begin and what the post office needs. Can you help with this?
Direct mail is a very effective marketing tool. Our professionals can help you design the artwork, size, colors, quantities and paper to maximize the value of your piece. We can even acquire a mailing list, address your pieces, and take them to the post office.
I just received a quote from another printing company and they are quoting me a 10% over/under charge. What does that mean, and do you have similar charges?
While 10% over/under charges may be common in the printing industry, we do NOT use them. They allow the printing company to deliver anywhere from 10% under the quantity you ordered to 10% over the quantity you ordered, and charge you accordingly. Chances are your job will either cost more than you expected, or you won’t receive the quantity you need. In either event, you can see why this practice does not meet our exacting standards of service.
I have heard a lot about digital printing. Which is better, digital or traditional offset printing, and how do I know which one to choose?
At Mingo, we offer both services. There are many advantages to both types of printing, and we will ensure your job is produced in the most efficient manner possible based on your needs. Of course if you have a preference, just tell us and we’ll be happy to print however you like.
I did not see my question listed above.
Please contact us and one of our printing professionals will be happy to help you. Call us at 855.696.4646, or email us at WeCanHelp@MingoPress.com.
How long does it usually take to have a job printed?
Depending on the job, we can normally complete any project by your deadline. Most can even be printed the same day. For more specific answers, we will need a bit more information from you. Contact us and we will do what it takes to hit your deadline.
How do I specify Pantone colors on my jobs?
You can specify them in your file, or in the notes section of your order. When your file is received, we’ll start preflighting it. We’ll email you with any questions we have, including spot colors.
How can I upload multiple files at one time?
It’s easy. Upload the first by clicking the “Upload” button on the calculator. To upload another file, simply click “Add Another!” You can upload up to 5 files per order. Drop us a line if you have any trouble: 855-696-4646.
Yes. Any time you order printing from us, we ask that you review a proof before we produce your job. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your job will be produced correctly. Depending on the type of job, we can show you a proof in a variety of different ways: by e-mail, fax, or hardcopy.
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 print business cards?
Yes. We have a wide variety of business card selections. We can print your business cards in black and white, Pantone colors, full color, even with thermography (raised printing). We do other types of printing as well. From brochures to envelopes, direct mail, and training manuals, we are your single source for printing and copying.
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.
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)
Are corporate accounts available?
Yes. Companies and organizations wishing to set up a corporate account can fill out our short application. Customers who do not have a corporate account may pay for their job with a credit card.
