Things you need to know about conference material in Montague Gardens

July 17, 2015 · Print This Article

When deciding on conference materials, there are a lot of factors which go into this. For example you need to know what will be deemed as a need and what as nothing more than an expense. If you have only a few key points of the address which you would like to be printed, then it is completely pointless to have them printed in font size forty on an A3 page. Here are 9 important conference printing material related questions answered.

1. What is the best file format for submitting a document for printing?

Submitting documents is made much easier when using The Portable Document Format (PDF). It allows for retaining all the information of a document and most other file formats can be converted to a PDF file.

2. Can I expect the same quality on paper as presented on a monitor?

Due to technological advances there is not much of a difference. At times there are minor colour and spatial differences. However a professional printing company is generally able to minimise any differences from monitor to paper.

3. What is meant by proof and the purpose thereof?

This is a copy of the final product you will receive to approve. It will then be sent to the printing facilities.

4. What are the recommended sizes for booklets and catalogues suitable for a conference?

A6 (105mm x 148mm), A5 (148mm x 210mm), A4 (210mm x 297mm) and DL (99mm x 210mm) are the most common sizes for catalogues and booklets.

5. What are the recommended sizes for conference brochures?

A5 (148mm x 210mm), A4 (210mm x 297mm) and DL (99mm x 210) are the standard sizes for brochures.

6. What materials can be used for my conference labels?

Uncoated paper can be used for labels to be written by hand or printed on by machine.

High gloss paper works well if you need excellent printability.

Vinyl is best used for outdoor areas and especially if the surface is made from vinyl.

7. What is the most convenient method for binding multi-page documents for a conference?

Spiral binding and plastic comb binding often works best for multi-page documents intended for conferences.

8. How long can I expect to wait for my printing material?

Professional printing companies often operate under swift turnaround times and offer additional emergency printing services.

9. Do I need to provide my own designs for conference printing material?

Printing companies offer design services for all your conference printing material.
