Flat Unfinished Sheets

If you’ve got access to a guillotine or ruler and a scalpel, (or even a pair of scissors if you’ve got a steady hand!) you can save on your marketing and promo materials by printing Flat Unfinished Sheets instead.

These sheets are printed in SRA3 size (that’s 460mm x 320mm), and allow you to organise and fit as many designs onto one sheet as possible, then finish them by hand when they arrive. They come in27 paper stocks, so you’re never short on choice and they start from just £10, perfect for education print, promo and loads more.

 

Leaflets and Flyers

These versatile, affordable prints can be customised any way you choose and used for a whole host of different print projects. Whether you need promo on short notice (selected options are available with next day delivery), informative handouts, open day guides or even mini course guides – Leaflets and Flyers get the job done without breaking the budget.
