Printed Full Colour on:

1 side only - 4/0 is the main FRONT side

2 side double-sided 4/4 - when printing TERMS & CONDITIONS on the reverse, please use a maximum 50% Black tint or Grey.

Sequential Numbering

Usually created as 5 digits (up to 7 digits max.) as 00001 etc.; do NOT put the numbering on the actual PDF artwork (otherwise it'll print on the job) but leave space (12mm tall x 30mm wide) describe its location in the box below. However you can start the sequential numbering wherever you like e.g. 01001-01500 etc. - numbering size is usually based around 14pt Arial and Black ink as default. We only do CRASH Numbering (thus the number is printed on the top copy but the pressure goes down through all the sheets).

We can alter the size and colour as it's digital numbering (e.g. 10pt in Red ink) on request.

Sequential Numbering Starting From

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam molestie arcu eget tellus pretium, sit amet ultrices odio pharetra. Interdum et malesuada fames ac ante ipsum primis in faucibus. Proin viverra mauris sit amet orci venenatis, id lobortis arcu tempor.

Sequential Numbering Position

You need to describe the position such as "Top Right beside Service Report", "Top Left beside Letter A", "Centre Top under Address". DON'T include numbering on your actual PDF artwork otherwise it'll print on the job. We need 12mm tall x 30mm wide of free space on your artwork for the sequential numbering area.
