Print a design portfolio at Ex Why Zed and secure your dream job!
Well that flew past didn’t it, University? Now it’s time to spread the word about your talents, cause some ripples through the art & design oceans and land that dream position in the industry!
With your Portfolio being the first contact between you and potential employers let’s make sure of two things: the Portfolio looks the best it possibly can and that it arrives before your deadline. At Ex Why Zed we are Portfolio printing specialists and will print your work using the highest quality digital presses to ensure it does maximum justice to your excellent work. We just need you to give us enough time to produce it!
Submit your files early and we’ll deliver in plenty of time for your deadline!
Four working days is a good turnaround time to work towards for printing after we receive your PRINT READY pdf. However, it is rare that files are supplied completely ready for print and usually need the odd tweak or two so allow an extra day for a bit of back and forth with this. We’re always happy to help but just please allow extra time for this in addition to the 4/5 days we need for the printing.
In the last few years we are proud to have regularly printed Fine Art, Graphic Design, Fashion, Architecture, Illustration and Product Design Portfolios to showcase the talent of students from UAL, RCA, Camberwell, Chelsea and CSM, UCA Epsom and Rochester, Falmouth, Goldsmiths, Glasgow School of Architecture, Birmingham University, Kingston University, Manchester Met, Arts University Bournemouth, Brighton University and Norwich UEA.
We understand funds are tight. Your portfolio might secure you the job of a lifetime but until then let’s not break the bank!
Here are our top tips for producing a stunning but cost effective portfolio:
• STUDENT DISCOUNT: We wont charge you for adding extra pages! If you are printing 1 or 2 copies then you can have a wire stitched booklet with up to 36 pages for the same price as we charge for just 12 pages. If your portfolio is perfect bound then you can print 96 pages for the same price as 40. Hopefully that gives you a bit more freedom when designing without having to worry about the cost? If you have 40 pages then add as many as you like up to 96 pages and it wont cost a penny more! (For print runs of 3 copies or more then the more pages you have the higher the cost.)
• Please note: we do not print A3 Portrait or Landscape Portfolios. A4 Portrait is significantly cheaper if you’re only ordering a few copies.
Not everyone is print savvy. From experience we know that the majority of designers could do with a little help and advice in preparing artwork for print.
The Ex Why Zed File Set Up Guide (capitals because it’s special!) is a carefully prepared, informative and illustrated guide which aims to answer the question we get asked most often: “How do I set up a file for print?”
Structured into a general file preparation overview with extensive sections to help you set up a file for both wire stitching and perfect binding projects the guide will serve as a valuable and time saving resource.
What’s the frequency Kenneth?
Ok, so now you’re wondering how do you set up the cover file for a perfect bound portfolio? Well we have tried to make this as easy as possible with predesigned cover templates, a step-by-step guide and even video tutorials.
The skills learnt in this guide will benefit you in future and become a valuable addition to any c.v.
When you arrive on your first day at an internship or job having the knowhow and ability to prepare files for print will give you an advantage over your peers and give you the confidence to hit the ground running in your new role.
