Standard Compliment Slips
Our standard compliment slips are produced either in spot colours or process colours (CMYK) on a top-quality, 120gsm ultra white laser/inkjet-guaranteed Bond.
Spot colours are generally used where colour accuracy is important, company logos etc. For more information on spot colours, please see this article – Spot and Process Colours Explained.
We offer a range of compliment slip materials including Conqueror©. (Please contact us for prices on Conqueror© paper). The most popular ‘flavour’ is brilliant white wove, which is ideal for desktop printers etc.
We feel assured you will not be disappointed with the quality of our compliment slips.
Standard size compliment slips = 210mm x 99mm (1/3rd A4)

Why not get your Letterheads printed at the same time to save costs. We can quickly create the artwork for you, based on your compliment slip design. Call us to see how we can help.
Need something a bit more special?
Why not consider having the Thermographic (raised print) process on part of your compliment slips, your logo for example. Call us for details, samples or prices.
Standard compliment slips measure 210mm x 99mm. However, if you require a different size (A5 for instance) then this can easily be produced, usually at no extra cost.
If designing your own compliment slips we would recommend leaving a 10mm border from the edge of the paper to the start of your artwork. The bottom margin could be 7mm. This layout will help to maximise the area you need to write on.

Yes. If you’d like to send us a copy of your business card, letterhead or any other item that needs matching to, we’ll find the Pantone® colour nearest to your sample and advise you. (Pantone® is a colour matching system used throughout the commercial printing industry).
If you need to send us an existing business card or letterhead etc. to match to, then please send to:

Generally, no! Some colours are fairly representative whereas others are a long way off. The monitor you view your proof on is a device that mixes colours using red, green and blue (RGB). Without getting too technical, if your monitor has not been calibrated to display a Pantone® colour, then it’s unlikely you will see an accurate representation.
If choosing one or more specific spot colours (for branding purposes etc.) then it’s essential the colours are chosen from a printed Pantone® swatch, unless you know your screen is accurately calibrated.
An example – if you were to select Pantone® Violet in your graphics program, it’s very likely that this will show as a ‘blue’ onscreen. If you were then to look at Pantone® Violet in a Pantone® swatch you’ll see that the true colour is actually a rich purple. It follows that if you’d selected this colour for your design from what you see onscreen (blue), then it’s very likely that you won’t be happy with the final printed results (purple).
If you don’t have access to a Pantone® swatch or just need some advice before sending in your artwork, please contact Debbie on: 01202 736979 who will be happy to help.Contact Us
Some businesses can’t live without them, others have little need for them.
It really depends on your circumstances. If you write a lot of cheques in the course of your business then compliment slips work out much cheaper than using letterheads when you need to quickly add a short message to the recipient.
They come in handy when you just need to write a few lines and especially useful if your message is informal. As they fit a standard DL envelope perfectly they are particularly useful for instantly identifying yourself to the recipient.
Think of them as a company notelet.
Yes. We will first check your artwork onscreen and then create a PDF proof through our software and then email you the file for final checking. Press proofs are not available for business cards due to the expense involved in creating them, and are usually reserved for brochure/magazine work, or other colour-critical material.
Unfortunately no. However, we do have a very experienced design team in-house who can help prepare any artwork required at a sensible and realistic cost. Whether it’s brochures, flyers, letterheads or even a company logo, we have the expertise required.
