In general, once an order has been electronically
transferred through our printer network, it is put into
production and can not be changed. We apologize for this
After an order is placed, but before it has been transferred
to the printer, there is a small amount of time in which to
cancel the order, recall your design, and then make changes
and reorder. This window of time varies between 30 and 60
minutes after you place your order.

8. Know about color printing and
Viewing color on your monitor
Computer monitors use RGB to display color. RBG stands for
Red, Green and Blue. When you print something to the CMYK
process, for best results, you need to convert any RBG
images, to CMYK images first. Sometimes you’ll see some
changes to the image when you make this conversion, so it’s
better that you see the changes first before uploading your
Also some colors that you see on your screen are very
difficult to reproduce exactly using CMYK (or any other
printing method). Therefore if you have the software that
enables you to process your image into CMYK before you
upload the image to PrintNameCard.com, you’ll have a close
idea of what you’ll get once the printed products are
shipped to you.
Some of the hardest colors to match going from RGB to CMYK
The differences between monitors
You also have to take into consideration that different
monitor types display colors differently. For instance, many
LCD or laptop monitors cannot display as much of a range of
colors as other monitors. On these monitors, colors can lose
contrast and many colors sometimes look similar to others
(for instance, dark greens and browns).
Professional designers and prepress companies use
color-calibrated monitors to ensure that the color they see
on their screens is as close as possible to the actual color
of the file. Most home users cannot afford to purchase these
very high-end monitors, and therefore have to understand
that there will ALWAYS be variance from what they see on the
screen to what they see on their printer, or any other
9. What is Celloglasing or Laminating?
Laminating is forming or pressing paper or other material
into a thin sheet or layer. Clear plastic coating can be
laminated onto paper (often by heat) to make the paper
stronger, more durable, and resistant to humidity and
We offer a range of boards and finishes to your cards. Matt
laminating is by far our most popular, and this is
preselected for all new cards printed in offset.
Semi Gloss Vanish
A semi gloss art board (310gsm) with a varnish is our most
popular finish for offset printing
Celloglazing - Gloss.
This is a thin gloss plastic film applied to the front and
back of your cards (310gsm).
Celloglazing - Matt.*
This is a thin silky matt plastic film applied to the front
and back of your cards (310gsm).
Uncoated Ivory Board. (currently not available)
This is a very smooth finished uncoated ivory board
(320gsm). Great for writing on. This board is best for cards
with a light coverage of ink. It is not suitable for large
solid colours or heavy photos.
10. What is CMYK printing?
To reproduce full-color photographic images, typical
printing presses use 4 colors of ink. The four inks are
placed on the paper in layers of dots that combine to create
the illusion of many more colors. CMYK refers to the 4 ink
colors used by the printing press. C is cyan (blue), M is
magenta (red), Y is yellow, and K is black, the key plate or
A mistake often made when submitting artwork for 4-color
printing is not converting the images to the CMYK color
space. This is needed so that the file can be separated into
the four colors (see example) so that a separate printing
plate can be made for each of the colors.
Examples: The illustration on this page shows a color
photograph (center) separated into its CMYK components. A
separate plate for the printing press would be made from
each one. Those areas on the C plate, for example, that are
black and shades of gray would print in varying shades of
Cyan. The white areas get no Cyan. Each ink is added in turn
to create the final full color image on paper.
Printed Product Using CMYK
CMYK is the most economical method of reproducing full color
images in the highest quality, and most magazines and glossy
collateral is printed using CMYK. CMYK is the standard
method that we currently uses to process all
print jobs for customers.
11. What should I know about image
Resolution and Pixels Defined
Resolution, when referring to an image, is the number of
pixels displayed per unit of printed length. It's a
measurement used in printing and it's stated in dots per
inch (dpi). This makes perfect sense because printers print
dots, and that's what a printed image is composed of.
When referencing an image onscreen -- on a computer monitor,
TV, plasma, or projector -- resolution is stated in pixels
per inch (ppi). This too makes sense because digital images
are displayed in teeny, tiny individual blocks of color
How They Work Together
The resolution measurement dictates how closely the pixels
are packed together. Increasing an image's resolution means
the pixels will be packed together more tightly, resulting
in a smaller physical size, but generating a smoother,
higher quality print. Lowering an image's resolution means
loosening the pixels, resulting in a larger physical image
size, but generating a blocky, lower quality print.
Think of the resolution measurement as density. For example,
the tighter a substance is packed, the denser it is and the
less surface area it takes up (like brown sugar). The more
loosely a substance is packed, the more surface area it
consumes and it becomes less dense.
The confusing part is that when it comes to imagery,
printers are the only devices that can do anything with the
resolution measurement. Because our eyes can only process so
much information, a 72 ppi image onscreen looks identical to
a 600 ppi image onscreen. However, a printer isn't hampered
by the human eyeball and can take advantage of resolutions
much higher than 72. (Actually, scanners can, too, but
that's a story for another time.)
How Much Do You Need?
The resolution necessary for a beautiful print depends on
the printing device itself. For instance, consumer inkjets
do a nice job at 225 to 250 dpi, while professional service
bureaus require 300 dpi and higher for glossy magazines,
coffee table books, and the like. For a color advertisement
in a newspaper, you need between 150 to 200 dpi. Same thing
for a black and white laser printer. However, to know for
sure, you've got to run some tests. If someone else is
printing your project, ask what resolution they want.
If you're dealing with images that will never be printed
(Web, email, and onscreen presentations) you don't need to
worry about resolution at all; it's the pixel dimensions
12. Why do certain colors look
different after they print?
Most home and small business printers are either inexpensive
ink-jet printers, or color laser printers. It is impossible
to calibrate any of these systems as they have a wide and
varied range of methods of printing. Even though some
printers use CMYK inks, many other factors have to be
considered, and it is impossible to expect to consistently
print perfect color.
We maintains as high standards as possible, it is still
almost impossible to print and expect to see exactly the
same color every day.
There are so many possible factors that can affect the color
on your printed materials. The weather outside can play a
part in affecting how the ink dries on the paper, and can
change the color slightly. The paper delivered from the
paper mill may be slightly brighter. The ink density and
constant on-press fluctuations in color, printing press
running temperature or blanket wear, could also affect color
slightly. It is impossible to expect that any professional
printer can produce exactly the same printed blue on two
separate days. However, we does have high quality controls
to ensure as little variation as possible, especially within
a single product order.
13. Can you send me a bill?
Payment through our payment gateway site will available from
their billing options page at checkout. We also attached a
bill upon delivery of goods.
14. Currency Exchange Rate

nothing left for you to do.
Your credit card statement will detail the Singapore dollar
amount, the current rate of conversion, and then the amount
you are being charged in your own currency.
Because exchange rates change as much as every minute, we
can not tell you exactly how much you will be charged in
your local currency. But we do know the rate generally and
we give you an indication how the conversion rate,
15. Do you offer rush delivery service?
Yes. We offer three to five business day rush shipping on
orders shipped to Singapore addresses placed before 1:00pm
local time. We're sorry, but rush shipping cannot be
selected if shipping to a PO box. Please sent us an email
when you place your order if you need it urgently. We will

via the SingPost or our company delivery. For orders that
delivery worldwide, we generally deliver via UPS. Click here
for worldwide delivery.
17. Can I upload my logo to a stamp?
Yes. Keep in mind that stamps are designed in black and
white only. For the best results, we recommend using an
outline of your logo. You can always order a PDF Proof of
your document to see what it will look like when it is
Please note that photos and complex images are not meant to
be placed on stamps.
18. How do I create a signature stamp?
Creating a signature stamp will require you to scan a copy
of your signature into one of our accepted file formats and
upload from our rubber stamps order form in the product
19. How long is my stamp good for?
The rubber stamp will last for quite some time depending on
how often you use it. Keep in mind that the ink pad in the
stamp may run dry before the stamp wears out, so it’s always
good to order additional ink pads! For date stamps, the
moveable date wheel is good for 12 years, and runs from 2006
20. How do I assemble my rubber stamp?
Printer NEW: How to fix the ImageCard in the index window
1. Insert the ImageCard with the sample imprint in the index
2. Click the index window back into place
Spare Pads/What do you use the endorsing ink for?
This ink is meant to be used for the traditional stamp pads
ONLY, it is not suitable for spare pads of self-inking
In some cases even your text die and the spare pad can be
destroyed (for instance because of solvents which are
component of the ink).
Spare Pads/How to change the colour of the imprint?
First take out the present spare pad of the stamping device.
After that clean the text die, so that no remaining ink
pigments can get into the new spare pad. Normally it is
sufficient to stamp on a white sheet of paper without the
inserted pad till there won't appear an imprint anymore.
Now you insert the new pad with the other colour into the
Spare Pads/What has to be considered when buying a new
When buying a new text die, you should also ask for a new
spare pad, because the present text die "left its traces" on
the spare pad. This means that the pad surface is a bit
uneven, and therefore you would achieve only a partial
imprint with your new text die.
The best however would be to use a new stamping device for
the new text die, and this way you can ask for the latest
Spare Pads/Why better exchange the spare pad instead of
Do not reink the spare pad of your COLOP self-inker. In case
of use of unsuitable ink, the spare pad and/or the text die
can be destroyed.
Customary ink is only intended for traditional stamp pads
(for hand stamps).
Original COLOP spare pads for self-inking stamps are
electronically inked and therefore guarantee that the ink is
evenly spread in the spare pad. Reinking the spare pad leads
to a high quantity of ink on the surface layer of the pad
(bad imprint), because the ink can not sufficiently seep
into the pad material. This way you automatically lose also
the guarantee for your imprint.
Spare Pads/What do I do with the present spare pad?
All parts of the COLOP spare pads are harmless, and can
therefore be disposed of the normal household waste.
Spare Pads/How to exchange a spare pad?
Exchange your present spare pad in your self-inker by simply
inserting a new one.
This way dirty fingers or dirty work surfaces are a thing of
