Product Overview

We can provide you with flat unfinished sheets, with your design printed on SRA3+ paper, ideal for trade printing. This has the benefit of saving you money if you want to trim the paper yourself. If you are a trade print customer, or you have your own finishing equipment, you may wish to take advantage of our available capacity to produce untrimmed printed sheets, which you can finish to your own specifications. For example, you may wish to order business cards printed on flat unfinished sheets and use your own guillotine to cut them to size.  

As you would expect, DigitalPrinting.co.uk offers you a great choice of options and you can upload many artwork versions in the same order.

We use our top quality HP Indigo presses to give you digital print with a litho look and feel, distinctive colour and quality. Choose from landscape or portrait, single or double-sided printed and an extensive choice of substrates from our range for flat unfinished sheets.

We print on flat sheets which are sized at 460mm x 320mm, however, the printable area is only 438 x 308mm, which is why we have created the templates at that size. If creating your own artwork without the help of a template please ensure that your artwork stays within the printable area.

Paper Options

Choose from silk, gloss, uncoated, recycled, Trucard, CrackBack, YUPO synthetic waterproof paper, and our full range of 12 Luxury papers with weights ranging from 100gsm to 400gsm.

Silk
Silk coated paper has a smooth feel with a discreet surface sheen. It offers excellent ink to paper contrast and printed colours appear distinct and clear.

Gloss
Gloss coated paper has a shiny surface and very smooth finish. Colour is sharp and stands out well. Ink dries quickly and the need for lamination is reduced.

Uncoated
Our uncoated paper is a great choice for stationery as it is absorbent and therefore easy to write on. Printed inks appear flatter due to this absorbency, and the paper has a soft finish.

Recycled
We have recycled stocks available in both silk and uncoated papers.

Trucard
A specialist greeting card material that is coated and scratchproof on the outside, and uncoated inside so it's easy to write on. We use heavy 280gsm card for high-quality greeting cards that last in either matt or gloss finish.

Crack-Back
Crack-Back adhesive paper only cracks where it's supposed to, making your labels super easy to peel off from the backing. However, the adhesive makes sure the labels stay stuck once they are in place. Crack-Back paper stickers are cut to size. Choose matt Crack-Back for low sheen and a luxurious feel or choose gloss Crack-Back to make your colours 'shine'. Or for outdoor use choose water resistant permanent adhesive stock.

YUPO Synthetic Waterproof Paper
YUPO Synthetic Paper is 100% recyclable, waterproof and tree-free, with attributes and properties that make it the perfect solution for a variety of marketing, design and labeling needs.

Finishes

Matt lamination gives a soft, contemporary effect. Gloss lamination gives a higher quality shine finish than gloss card. Lamination is most useful with solid colours or images to enhance their vibrancy or where you want to protect your printed sheets.

    Everything that the customer could wish for! A* from start to finish. Definitely recommend.:)

  • Monika U.

    My 4th order and definitely not the last. Fast turnaround, excellent quality, price and customer service! What is particularly nice is a real care about the customer and human to human contact. What else to wish for?

  • Steph S.

    Packaged really well so they arrived flat and safe. The quality of the print is really beautiful. I got the 'gesso' luxury paper which has the texture of a watercolour paper.
