10 Things Not To Say To Your Local Printing Company…

Just for a bit of fun, here are some of the craziest things we’ve been told over the last 30 years as a local printing company in London. In actual fact, we managed to get a positive result in the end for pretty all the situations mentioned below but by keeping in close contact with our clients, we generally avoid these pitfalls and be the superhumans they expect us to be!

  1. I don’t mind which stock it’s printed on, you choose…
  2. Can you scan this black and white document so that it can be colour printed…?
  3. I’ve set this document in 14 spot colours, can I get 2 copies litho printed…
  4. Just use the logo from our website…
  5. I know you said this job would take four hours to print but it’s only just been signed off, so can I get in 20 minutes…?
  6. I know I signed off the proof but it just doesn’t look like I thought it would…
  7. How much? It’s just a bit of paper…
  8. Oh, I thought it would be mounted on black coloured board, did I forget to mention that?
  9. We found a couple of typos on the document we sent you, I’m surprised you didn’t pick up on these when you were printing it…
  10. I’m sure if I use Google, I can find a million other printers who won’t think I’m being unreasonable…
