 Can Thomson undertake jobs in different languages?

Yes, we can print in any language that you provide the files for. Sometimes we print the same book in two languages by creating a black plate change for the text. This way both books can be delivered at the same time.

 Do you have the facility to scan my artwork?

Yes, we have state-of-the-art prepress equipment that can reproduce your images very close to the original. We provide press proofs on the paper and with the ink that will be used on press for the best possible match that you can get.

 At what dots per inch (dpi) should I scan photos?

Photos should be scanned at twice the line screen they will be reproduced. Example: Most photos are produced at 133 for B & W and 150 line screen for color and should be scanned at 300 dpi. Scanning higher than necessary does not improve quality.

 What does "line screen" mean?

A line screen or screen ruling is measured in lines per inch (lpi) or lines of cells per inch in a tint or halftone.

 What do you mean by PMS colors?

PMS (Pantone Matching System) is an ink color system used in the graphic arts industry. Almost any color can be found using this system.

 Who should I contact about the status of my job?

A Client Servicing executive will be assigned to each client to offer personalized service. You will have an email id and a phone number to contact on.

 How will my job be delivered back to me?

Your job will be delivered back to you as a sea / air shipment depending upon the value and urgency of your requirement.

 What about privacy and security?

No information we collect for order processing or from inquiries is shared with any other company or website. Your information is only used to contact you when necessary.

 How can I be assured of a high quality job without a press check?

We provide a complete set of press proofs for all jobs, as well as a bound sample using the exact materials that you specified. Against request, running sheets from a title on press are also sent to get approval on the colour values right from the beginning. Your final job will not be printed until you have approved the press proofs.

 When do I receive blueprints or laser proofs?

Blueprints or laser proofs are normally received about 10 days after we receive complete inputs.

 What is your turnaround time?

It could be as low as 3 days from proof approval to dispatch and 8 weeks for a large extent, multicolor book.

 What happens if my shipment is damaged in transit?

Before booking your shipment we make sure to have adequate insurance to cover any damages while in transit. Claims are processed through the insurance company's local office and handled quickly. If we take care of the delivery to your door, the shipment will be insured for the entire journey. If you choose to use your own "to the door" delivery service, make sure that you have insurance for this portion of the trip.
