How will my programs be printed?
We offer both digital and offset printing options. We recommend digital printing for short, full color runs and offset printing for spot color designs. You can even throw a foil stamp (or two!) on there!
Can I see a printed proof for my programs?
Sure! We offer color accurate hard copy proofs for digital, full color jobs. Due to the setup processes involved in offset spot color printing, we cannot provide a color accurate hard copy proof. But we can print a digital proof for you to review your paper choice and layout.
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.
Can I add variable data to my programs?
Absolutely! We can print your envelopes digitally, which accommodates variable data. This is a great way to make your programs double as place cards.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
