Distinct. Direct. Meaningful. Add a personal message with a branded compliment slip.
You might think scribbling on a simple scrap of paper will suffice. But for that personal, professional, and meaningful approach, you can’t go wrong with a custom-printed compliment slip.
Whether you’re answering a customer enquiry, or simply saying ‘thank you’, do so with a touch of class. And for a real eye-catching, quality look, try the spot ink print option.
Compliment slip print file setup information
As with all of our products, we ask that the file is supplied as single individual pages, not double pages.
For sharper images, we advise uploading files at 300dpi. Images lower than 100dpi may appear pixelated.
We ask for a 3mm bleed and a 5mm quiet area on all letterheads. Please do not include any important content within this area.
You must supply your print file as a PDF with the Pantone or HKS colour set as a spot colour, and labelled with the relevant reference number – e.g. Pantone 287 C
We cannot print multiple spot colour inks. Only one single spot ink is available print file.
For the very best results, we recommend that the spot colour does not overprint a background colour and is instead set to ‘Knockout’.
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
How to Print Your Compliment Slips
How to supply your print files
You can send us your compliment slip files in whatever manner suits you. We’ll accept single files for each piece or you can send us a combined file for all the pieces you want to print. For the best results, we recommend uploading your images at 300dpi. Anything lower than 100dpi will appear pixelated.
For all compliment slips, we require a 3mm bleed as well as a 5mm quiet area. Please refrain from adding any important content in these areas.
If you choose paper weighted at 170gsm or higher for your compliment slips, we can offer lamination. Any paper lighter than 170gsm will curl if we try to laminate.
Compliment Slip Printing FAQ
Typically, compliment slips are produced in smaller runs on HP Indigo digital printers for the best colour reproduction. However, for larger print runs (1,000 copies) our system defaults to a Heidelberg Speedmaster offset litho printer, which is far more cost effective. If you are intending to order a longer run of art prints, but would like digital colour reproduction, please contact us.
