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 belly bands for four different invites? 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.
?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.
?We'll add scores in all the right places to help this fit around your invite just right. To avoid unsightly cracking, we recommend scoring anything thicker than 80# Text.
?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.
WANT TO JAZZ THINGS UP?
?Bring on the fancy! Selecting these special finishes will require a custom quote. We promise it will be worth it.
How do I know what size belly band to pair with my invitation?
A great trick to figuring belly band size is to take the width of your invitation, multiply it by 2 and then add 1 inch. Sounds complicated, right? If math ain’t your thang, check out our belly band templates. We’ve thoughtfully labeled the corresponding card size which each option. And don’t forget – you can always go custom!
Can I order a belly band without any printing?
Of course you can! Contact us today for a custom quote.
Can I choose a a thick stock for a belly band?
Sure can! We’ll score it for you to make assembly a breeze.
Can you adhere my belly bands for me?
We’d be happy to! Contact us today, and we’ll get you a custom assembly quote.
Do you show proofs?
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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)
