What if my item was delivered damaged?

Once you have verified damage has occurred to the material inside the package you must email our Customer Service team on email@example.com so we can process and reprint your order.
If, when delivered, the printed product cannot be used because there is no packaging or the content are completely ruined, please do not accept the material and mark the refusal on the document provided by the courier.

We cannot accept a claim for loss for items delivered via Royal Mail unless 15 working days or more have passed since the item was due to be delivered.
What is ‘encapsulation’?
Encapsulation is what most people think of when they hear the word ‘lamination’; it is a thick, glossy layer of plastic which covers a document on both sides, often extending out beyond the edges for ultimate protection. This is not to be confused with lamination, which is a thinner, more subtle method of document protection.
Do you have any suggested retail prices for my products?
Here at printed.com we sell everything at trade prices so that you can add your own mark-up. What price you sell your stuff for is really up to you, but we would recommend a 30% mark-up for both large format and small format products.

Are any of your paper stocks waterproof?
Yes! For small format printing, you can create waterproof stickers and labels using our polyester or silver gloss label papers. Our antique white laid label paper is not waterproof but has a high water resistance.

What weight are your envelopes?
The paper we use for our envelopes weighs between 90–125gsm, depending on the type of envelope you choose. Just to give you an idea of thickness, standard home printer paper is 80gsm, so your envelope will feel slightly thicker than this.

What is the best way to print on silver sticker paper?
Printing designs onto silver gloss sticker paper is easy, the only thing you’ll need to bear in mind is that white designs will appear silver on finished print. This is because what appears as white on standard paper is just the absence of ink- so even though you may have selected a white-based design from our gallery, if you choose silver sticker paper, the white sections of your design will be silver.
Colours that are printed on silver paper will have a beautiful, understated, metallic tint to them, and text will appear defined and readable.
What is ‘Gesso’?
Tintoresso Gesso is a type of textured, luxury paper which we stock here at printed.com. This paper was handpicked by our team of print industry experts at the special request of our own customers and is ideal for when your print needs a little something extra. It has a fine, dimpled, ‘hammered’ effect across its surface and gives a classical softness to designs.
