The Creative VIP Pack
Never make a print mistake again. That's what The Print Handbook is all about. It's packed full of examples and tools to help you as a designer make sure your work looks perfect when printed.
Because you're a Creative VIP member we'll throw in a pack of four CMYK greetings cards (normally £4.40) completely for free. If the CMYK cards are not available then we'll send you some Pantone cards instead.
The Print Handbook is printed with 5 colours on silk, gloss and uncoated paper. The 300gsm cover is foiled and in our opinion looks and feels awesome.
