Design and Printing

With 48HourPrint, you can upload an existing and have it printed. We found it difficult to upload a design with 48HourPrint because of all the steps you must take to prepare your files for upload. The accepted file types for uploading a design include: PSD, EPS, INDD, QXD, CDR, FHD, PUB, PPT, PDF, TIF, JPEG, BMP, and SIT. They do not offer pre-designed templates or a design tool to create your own design for brochures, flyers, or postcards. 48HourPrint does offer blank templates, which you can download and edit using your own design software, such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.

48HourPrint offers both digital and offset printing. Offset printing is a process in which a plate makes an inked impression on a rubber-blanketed cylinder, which in turn transfers it to the paper. Offset printing offers higher image quality, is more cost effective when ordering large quantities, and is better for larger prints. Digital printing is a process in which the data and images are printed directly from the computer onto paper. It has shorter turnaround time, is more cost effective when ordering small quantities, and is better for customized printing.
