Achieving your identity

We'll help you get to the bottom of what your business is all about and how best to use your resources to make your money go further.

Because we produce print and web site design as well as signs and banners we are in a position to re-use your graphics across the advertising spectrum - you're only dealing with Chris Fickling Design for all your publicity so you're keeping costs down.

Product brochure printing and design

A product brochure is one of the most effective ways of getting your business "out there". A product brochure can be anything, from a simple A4 (DL) outlining your company's prodcuts or services, to a full "glossy" publication covering every aspect of your business and listing, in detail, everything you offer.

Flyer printing and design

Chris Fickling Design produce a vast range of Posters, Leaflets and Flyers for bars, restaurants and clubs in Nottingham and the East Midlands. We also produce promotional material for charity events and stage performances.

Business Card Printing

We print business cards in a variety of weights and sizes. What's right for your business will depend on your logo and corporate colours and we're always happy to advise

Our business cards can be litho or digitally printed. There is no difference in in quality but for shorter runs digital printing is generally cheaper. We define a short run as being around 125 to 500 cards of one person's name - any more than that and we would probably recommend litho.

Business card prices

We generally quote on quantities of 125 and up. We use quality cards of greater weight and density then free business cards you may see on offer.

Supplying artwork for business cards

As part of our graphic design service we are very happy to design your business cards but if you want to supply your own artowrk here are some guidelines:

Keep all text at least 5mm from the edge of the business card.

If you have areas of colour or images that run up to the edge of the business card you must add 'bleed' to the overall size of the card. So if the card is 55mm x 85mm you must supply the artwork at a size of 59mm x 89mm.

Your artwork must be supplied as a press-ready PDF or maximum quality JPG in CMYK format - if you don't know what that means then please just get in touch and we will advise.

Letterheads and Compliment Slips

Our letterheads and compliment slips are usually litho printed on Conqueror or similar paper.

For smaller businesses we also offer letterheads and compliment slips that are available as PDF files so they can be printed from a home or office computer as required.

Business Forms and Invoices

Usually litho printed and available numbered and as duplicate or triplicate 'No Carbon Required' pads.
