State of the art printing and computer controlled cutting mean one off and short runs of lifesize cardboard cutouts are affordable. Simply supply a logo or photograph and we will do the rest. Add some lifesize interest to your promotional displays with a photo-realistic custom cardboard cutout.

You may see other standees on the market that are called cardboard cutouts. We use 4mm corrugated Correx board, because it is much sturdier than cardboard and will last longer. As we print high volumes of Correx we are able to produce it at the same price as cardboard, giving you a better product for the same price.

The perfect way to attract attention at busy events or in crowded stores, add a high quality cutout of people, products, buildings, cartoons, corporate logos and more to your promotional material. An affordable and effective way to stand out from the crowd, personalised cutouts are ideal as an eye-catching POS display and great for new product launches, adding a different dimension to your marketing. Also ideal for conferences, trade shows and exhibitions, why not add a lifesize celebrity cutout to your stand - delegates won't be able to resist a photo opportunity, increasing traffic and potential sales!

Printed in stunning full colour directly to panel with UV fade resistant inks, our custom cardboard cutouts are suitable for use in both indoor and outdoor environments, and the direct printing method prevents warping or peeling. Your freestanding display standee will be contour cut to shape. The cutout can then be wall mounted, or used as a freestanding promotional display using the rear struts for stability - the lightweight materials make it a convenient, portable and versatile advertising tool, which can be reused in a multitude of different situations.

A great, high-impact promotional asset at photo shoots, press releases, in-store displays and corporate events, our high quality standees can also be used to add another dimension to weddings, fundraising events, office parties and more. Whether you require hundreds of cutouts for a retail promotion, or a single personalised standee for a party or celebration, our efficient, state of the art production techniques mean one off and short runs of lifesize cardboard cutouts are a practical and affordable option. Simply supply a logo or photograph and we will do the rest.

Zund Swiss Precision Cutting
Precision Standee Cutting
Your standee needs to ensure the cut around it is spot on to give the best possible impression. We use a super fast computer controlled cutter on all our Correx products, which take out the margin for human error and ensure a consistently perfect cut every time.

Thed end result is a standee that have a smoother edge than traditional cardboard cutouts.
Perfect Colours Every Time
Lifesize cutouts generally have very fine details, such as skin tones or bold animated characters, so you need a printer that can produce vibrant colours.

We print using 6 colours, and can also print in white, unlike many other print studios, which opens up a whole new world of creativity.

Our printers are carefully profiled and calibrated so you get an accurate match between inks and material and a consistent print finish.

Whether you're a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we're here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.

I don't have print ready artwork, can you design it for me?

If you have the elements, such as text, logos, and text, we can take these and create a print ready design layout for you at a small additional cost. We have a number of affordable set price packages available to suit any requirements. Many of our products have a design service as an additional extra for instant ordering. For products that don't please contact us to discuss your brief. Visit our in-house design service page to find out more.

I will be supplying print ready artwork.

Many of our print products have the option to upload your artwork on the product page. If that option is not available, you will receive an email shortly after placing your order with instructions on how to send your artwork files.

In order to avoid any delays in production, please follow our guidelines below to make sure your artwork is ready to go. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch to talk to one of our team.

Resolution - 100dpi At Full Size

Generally, 100 dpi is a good standard for images with the document size set at full size of the large format printed product. For example, if you want to order a 40"×60" print, the image size should be 4000 pixels (40 x 100) by 6000 pixels (60 x 100) at 100 dpi.

100% scale at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi
25% scale at 400 dpi
10% scale at 1000 dpi

If any dimension of the product is greater than 5000mm, please produce the artwork to scale. For very large artwork such as hoarding walls, 10% scale can be utilised at 1000dpi for images, or use vectors as these will scale perfectly.

Bleed - 5mm All Around At The Final Print Size

If you are creating set size artwork for hardware then please use the product template. If you have ordered a custom size product please ensure you include 5mm of bleed on your design.

You only need to add print bleed to your artwork if the design extends to the edge of the page. If all of your text and images are in the centre of the design and are surrounded by a plain white background, you won’t need to worry about print bleed as the edges will blend seamlessly into your overall design. If any element of the design goes right up to the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed on all sides is necessary.

Colours - Please Supply All Colours As CMYK+

Computer screens use RGB, while printers use CMYK. You may ask why this matters? Most colours created in RGB can be closely matched in CMYK but some cannot. If colours are critical we always suggest ordering a printed proof.

Other things you can do to check your colours:

- Use a calibrated monitor (colours vary from monitor to monitor)
- Use a printed CMYK colour swatch to check your colours
- Don't check samples from a desktop printer
- Order a printed proof from us (this may cause an increase in lead time)

Fonts - Please Embed, Flatten, Or Convert To Curves

For large format print, we recommend that the minimum font site is 8pt (point size).

Our preferred file format for print-ready artwork is a PDF, please make sure you embed any fonts for perfect results. With other file formats please ensure fonts used in your design are converted to outlines and include all fonts and images used when you send your files to us.

Do You Need A Proof?

If you are providing print ready artwork, we do not provide a proof as standard, which enables us to get your print to you quicker. If you require a proof please get in touch with us to discuss. We do provide a free technical file check as standard, as outlined below.

We can provide a machine print proof for the extra cost of £25 plus delivery. This involves printing an A3 proof on the machine that will be used to produce your final print. This will give you an accurate representation of colour. If you are using our design service, we do send out a PDF proof, which is an accurate representation of content and positioning. It is not an exact indicator of the final colour due to the limitations of screens.

Quoted delivery dates for print are from approval of artwork, so please bear in mind that requesting a proof may delay the delivery date of your product.

Delivery

After you have placed your order a provisional despatch and delivery date will be sent to you via email.

Our standard delivery time for printed products is 2-5 working days after artwork has been approved for print. If you have a specific deadline, please contact us to ensure we can meet this. Please check that your artwork meets the guidelines above to prevent any delays in approval.

Free Artwork Check

Before we go to print, we will carry out a free technical check on your artwork. If there are any issues, we will contact you to let you know what needs to be changed.

Colour Matching

Our printers and media are of the highest standard and are carefully calibrated to produce vibrant, full colour prints. The process involves CMYK printing and this means it is not always possible to match Pantone colours, but they will be converted to the nearest CMYK equivalent.

If exact colour matching is critical, please send us a physical copy of other printed material, such as a letterhead or brochure, and we will check your file prior to printing. If we cannot achieve a reasonable match we will call you to discuss.

Please send any physical examples to: Discount Displays, 31-35 Wortley Road, Croydon, Surrey, CRO 3EB.
