What's the difference between fonts and typefaces? And in this age of computers and digital printing, does it even matter anymore? http://bit.ly/1FYsY9Y #font   #typeface   #typography   
Fonts and typefaces; what's the distinction? Despite the fact that many use the terms interchangeably, they aren't exactly the same thing.

Ordered some business cards from this company - paid a very premium price for them and received a very cheap product in return. I complained about the quality and was surprised when no solution or compromise was offered.
Response from the owner - a month ago

Were thoroughly impressed with Solopress and would highly recommend them to others. The leaflets we ordered had the artwork amended promptly and accurately, and we were kept fully aware of the progress of the order throughout. Solopress went above and beyond to ensure our leaflets were delivered to us in a very short space of time, and once received, we were incredibly happy with the quality and professional finish of the leaflets. Excellent service all round, pleasure to deal with, will continue to use Solopress for all our printing requirements.

I cannot praise Solopress enough. I'm part of a comedy improv group (@AllMadeUpImprov) taking our first show to this year's Edinburgh Fringe, and the quote from Solopress to produce 10,000 flyers die-cut to a bespoke luggage tag shape printed on both sides and in full colour came in SO much cheaper (around £800 cheaper in fact) than the 3 other quotes I received. This meant that we were able to produce our unique eye-catching design, as opposed to the traditional A6 flyer size most acts hand out. But there was NO compromise on quality - when they arrived the flyers came out PERFECT. The colours came out EXACTLY as they did on-screen, a rarity indeed, and the quality of the stock they used was exactly what we were after. And such a quick turnaround time as well. Following this we also used Solopress to print our 100 Edinburgh show A3 flyers, which again were so competitively priced, and when they arrived they looked and felt AMAZING. I've never seen any of our poster artwork printed at such a high quality as this, the colours came out fantastic. And once again, the stock they used was of such great quality and the 24 hour turnaround time was a lifesaver. Their staff have been so helpful and professional too, they respond to emails and questions extremely quickly and have been very co-operative. Overall, an excellent service and I shall definitely be using Solopress in the future, and will be telling my friends and other acts to do so too.

Excellent Service. I required several A2 prints,but I also needed a small change to the PDF image which I sent over to Solopress. I checked the price for the prints against other companies, and Solopress was very competitive. I emailed the company with my requirements. Solopress rang me back in a couple of minutes just to confirm how the amendment to the PDF file should be. Solopress regarded the amendment as "minor" and did not charge me for the change. Within ten minutes everything was sorted out, and within 48 hours I had my prints, which are superb! Needless to say I will be using Solopress again!!

Appalling !! After having an amazing experience - I went back to solopress for a larger order, with a view to get work done over £1000 in total. This time around, they allocated a very junior designer - this designer was unable to get basic things like font size right in English, or the colour of the fonts. Kept asking for a new designer but to no avail- two weeks later, still the same designer and the same exact problems. Got a call from Emma Young - customer service - told me they will have to charge me for additional work. When I asked what additional work, she could not tell me what they were and further became rude because all the changes I had asked for were correction to their mistakes and lack of attention to detail. Absolutely appalling - be careful. LATEST: Got proof back, mistakes that were corrected have been reversed! One step forward, two steps back. For Gods sake, third week now!!!

Great service. The input from Solopress was so helpful and prevented me using a poor quality image for the poster. The person I spoke to was good at explaining the problems and patient when I clearly did not understand the technical side!! The finished poster is great quality and was much admired at a recent sale.

Being incredibly fussy I approached solo press with caution as I previous had a bad experience with on-line printers. But I have to say they were the most patient, helpful, knowledgeable and courteous group of people I have dealt with in a long time, my flyers arrived on time and were spot on in print and quality. I would highly recommend them, to anyone personal or business.
