Hi,

Before I venture into becoming a general trader of JDMST, just want to check on general interest and feedback on purchasing high quality print outs.

Process will be like you send me any high quality photos, I print and send them to you. You can then use them as decorations, displays, gifts, framing etc etc.

Papers will be usually 220-250 gsm A3 size with glossy or matt finish, but we cater for all sizes, finishes and gsm. Price varies obviously per customised print, and the more you print in a go the cheaper.

Prints can be SRA3 but I can also cut it down to A3 for you, the prints are done using commercial grade Fuji Xerox printers.

Resolution is 1200 x 1200 DPI using Postscript

Let me know on your thoughts.

Turn around time should be within one week, price probably initially as below:

$15 for first one and $5 for each subsequent picture(s) in same order, with postage on top depending on express, regular, registered etc

TBC but it is done using commercial grade Fuji Xerox

Limited, but yes an option, but price will increase obviously

Gloss will be on 250gsm SRA3 (bit bigger than A3)

Sorry, only A3, and A4.

A4 220gsm goes for about $10 for first one, then $3 for subsequent

Judging by that demo pic, it's not borderless?

Either way, very interested. Would be good to get some of my art printed.

Guys, you can choose to have border or not, it's just that we will guillotine it for you, no printer can print right to the edge.

Everyone, this greatly depends on the type of printer.

Most commercial grade photo printers do NOT print borderless. You print on larger stock then use a guillotine to get rid of the borders.


n.b. I'm assuming he's NOT using an A3 inkjet printer....

Correct. Photos are printed using commerical grade Fuji Xerox printers, therefore borderless A3 is only achieved through printing onto SRA3 size (larger) and cutting the edges off. Thanks Wilch.

I am still investigating for all whether I can access non manually adjusted borderless prints

sweet any chance you can make prints on canvas?

van
25-03-08, 04:37 PM
I think the only way to print to canvas is by using a Giclee printer, which is a super expensive process... might be wrong though.

$15 is decent, but $5 for every subsequent print after that is what is keeping me checking back.

If the prints are good I'll have plenty for you to do :)

For them to print nicely at A3, you'll want them to be 300DPI, which for A3 is 4961px x 3508px on screen (landscape obviously).

22-04-08, 10:06 AM

Weird, we didn't alter any settings, we just left it printing the way the photo is.

Maybe I should play around with the machine's brightness settings for you next time.

But I'll have more stuff for you soon :)

eug4emi
02-05-08, 07:33 PM
Thanks, from now on I will also use post tube only, I wanted to avoid rolling the paper at first but should be fine due to its thickness.

This is because Steve B's work place's mail room had mail which dented his prints, but he kindly asked a laminating place to fix it for him.

brasher - if you got requests just ask, i will always try and check :)

What do you mean by perfect bounding ?
I can print both sides. But both sides might not align. As in if you hold it up to the light, one edge might not line up to the other edge on the other side. Let me know, ta

supernatural
03-06-08, 09:59 PM
i will be printing a whole booklet... and will need them to be aligned perfectly...

Definitions of Perfect Bound on the Web:

* A bindery finishing process where the text pages of a book are sewn together and a cover is wrapped around the pages and attached with glue.

* A binding method. The magazine will have a spine that resembles the spine of a paperback novel.

* A binding procedure where adjacent pages are stacked together. The spine edge is glued, and then a cover is glued onto the spine.

* When the pages of a book are held together by a cover glued to the spine and wrapped around to form the front and back covers - ie paperback books.

* Bookbinding is the process of physically assembling a book from a number of folded or unfolded sheets of paper or other material.

supernatural:

Just clarify if you want to actually create the whole booklet with me doing the glue binding? Or do you just want back to back pages printed and you'll do the binding yourself?

How many pages folded in the whole booklet? And is it all 220gsm?

Would the whole file be a pdf? word doc? Or is it just a collection of images to create a booklet?

supernatural
05-06-08, 12:37 AM
if you can actually do the glue binding for me tat would be awesome... there will be about 70 pages on the booklet... and going for the 150gsm for the spreads with 300gsm for the cover... PDF of course :)

not much 300gsm prints i would say... probably 3? what are the different type of papers that you have... do you have a shop?? or samples?? would be great if i could visit your shop... :)

also... do you do cuts??

So does that mean 18 pages folded? 70 divided by 4 ? I'll find out if that can be done.

And is the pdf already imposed? E.g. Page 2&69 on the front, 1&70 on the back etc?

Pretty much most stock up to 300gsm can get access to, will quote you once all details are confirmed.

And cuts as in guillotine? I can probably get it done.

Sorry no shop, all remote dealings.

Found out some specs for the glue binding booklet but I don't think I'll be able to do what you want.

For a glue binded booklet, the cover can be 200-250gsm with 70-120gsm inserts. The binder can do up to 300 sheets at 80gsm. If sending any pdf documents just make sure it's unimposed. If you go any heavier like 300gsm for the cover there is a chance you'll see cracking.

Are you looking at printing right to the edge? Or are you happy with the white border on each page? If you want right to the edge, it would have to be printed oversized and cut down.

Saddle stitched booklet which means two staples down the spine will do up to 50 sheets at 80gsm.

I think at this stage because you have time constraints, look at maybe printing normal 300gsm stuff and can get it aligned edge to edge by me. So you get the idea of quality and stuff. But yeh, as I said dunno if I can do the glue binded booklet stuff.

supernatural
09-06-08, 07:18 PM
o ok... im actually looking for a cheaper option on printing the booklet as most places are charging heaps due to the setup fee and all...

and as for individual printing for my deliverables... it will be too much of a hassle to get them done through you as i need them in different sizes and paper thickness...
