Show your true colours

Colour is all about perception. From the way your eyes perceive light and colour to form images — to the way colour and colour theory impact the way customers perceive your branding and business.

Colour theory is as much about the art as it is the science of print. We know that certain colours are symbolic of, and evoke certain emotions in an audience, and a basic understanding of colour theory can go a long way when making the very best of your digital and printed collateral. Maintaining consistency across these platforms can be best understood when we explore the two ways in which colour is created:

1. Additive colour spaces, or RGB – is used on screens, where a combination of red, green and blue forms the colours that we see;

2. Subtractive colour spaces, or CMYK – is used in print, and is created by combining cyan, magenta, yellow and black

Each space produces a different spectrum of colour, and accurate colour matching means no surprises from when you view your designs on screen, to when they arrive at your door in print.

Minuteman Press Alexandria are your partners in colour matching and correction, and our experienced graphic designers and print operators are here to help in delivering your project at its best and brightest.

Welcome to the digital age


Digital printing has provided a great alternative to offset printing. There is no need for plates and other set up fees, which can be overwhelming and non-economical for a small business. The advancement in technology over the past few years have been amazing, meaning that the quality difference between digital and offset can only be seen by only the most professional eye.

Digital printing provides many options in terms of choice of paper stocks such as coated, uncoated or premium textured and metallic papers. You can also choose binding options such as wire binding and saddle stitch. Digital printing also allows for variable data and mail merge benefits. This makes digital printing valuable for direct marketing, developing customer relationships and in advertising, where there is need to include an address for each recipient.

We understand the importance of accurate printing for your business. Please discuss with our team if you need to print small runs using digital printing.
