Print NM combines the convenience of online print ordering with the responsibility of a local business. We offer a full range of printed products, priced to compete with large out-of-state printers, with FREE DELIVERY throughout New Mexico. By offering a standard selection of products, we are able to produce high quality printed pieces quickly and at a great price. Our parent company, Don Mickey Designs, Inc., has provided full service graphic design and printing solutions in Albuquerque since 1993, giving Print NM a solid foundation for offering online printed materials to clients throughout New Mexico.
Print NM is committed to sustainability. This is evident in the materials we use in production.
DIRECT IMAGING AND WATERLESS PRINTING
Print New Mexico’s primary production presses for four color process (full color) printing are Kodak/Ryobi presses. The advantages of these presses include direct-to-press imaging via a series of laser diodes built into the press, and waterless offset printing capability. The creation of waterless plates on the press completely eliminates the need for traditional prepress developers, stabilizers, and cleaning agents, which have traditionally been significant pollutants in the printing industry. In addition, the waterless printing capabilities of the press help to minimize airborne pollutants within our facility, while simultaneously eliminating the residual liquid pollutants produced by traditional offset presses. Finally, the combination of the Kodak Prinergy digital front-end which presets ink densities, combined with the inherent color readiness of waterless printing, result in minimal paper waste in set-up and throughout the press run.
Our selected ink for full color process production is vegetable based waterless printing ink. This ink, when employed with waterless printing techniques, provides the least impactful results possible in offset printing. These inks exceed environmental standards for both VOC’s and heavy metal content. Because of the necessary ‘thickness’ and pigments, our metallic inks and varnishes are petroleum based.
DIGITAL SHORT-RUN AND LARGE FORMAT PRINTING
For short-run pieces and proofing, we use both laser and ink-jet devices. While certain VOC’s, particulates, and ozone emissions are unavoidable when dealing with digital printing devices, we have chosen to use low emission machines, including Konica-Minolta, Canon, and Roland Eco-Sol. In addition, we recycle toner cartridges, as well as all waste paper.
The majority of our material chemical waste has been eliminated with our direct-to-plate and direct-to-press systems. The liquid and solid chemical traces that do leave our facility are in the form of rags, which are collected and cleaned by a certified company specializing in the process and are then reused. For the limited number of solvents and chemicals used in our facility, we have chosen to use the most environmentally friendly chemicals available to us.
Print New Mexico’ house coated paper contains a minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled material. All of the coated papers we offer have the EPA required minimum 10% recycled content.
UNCOATED OFFSET AND OPAQUE PAPER
Most uncoated stocks contain a minimum of 30% recycled material, usually all of which is post-consumer to meet EPA requirements.
Print NM, under it's parent company Don Mickey Designs, Inc., guarantees the highest quality full color offset printing and large format digital printing. We realize that it may be a difficult choice to order online business cards, postcards, or other print products offered online at www.printnm.com. Therefore, we want to take the worry out so that you can focus on creating great brochures, envelopes, letterheads, postcards, or any printed product with our online instant ordering.
Please note that due to the nature of our full-color printing (CMYK), we cannot print every color available. We do not color match; therefore, we print within industry standards for respectable color and will make every rational effort to print your product as close to the colors you have provided as possible. We offer a Satisfaction Guarantee to our customers for the printed products that we produce and sell. This includes business cards, postcards, envelopes, letterhead, etc. If you are not entirely satisfied with the printed quality of the finished product, we will gladly reprint the piece for you free of charge, or we will give you a full refund for the printed product with which you are not satisfied.
As a customer, you are responsible for submitting print ready files. This includes including full bleed to your press-ready digital files by adding 0 .125" dimension for all products that require bleed. All file formats must have a minimum of 350 dpi (dot per inch) resolution. All color artwork and/or images must be provided in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) color mode and black & white artwork and/or images must be provided in grayscale. If your supplied files do not meet these criteria, we will print using the supplied files, but can not guarantee the print quality of the finished piece. Aditionally, it is up to you, the customer, to understand paper weights and finishes. We will not honor our Satisfaction Guarantee for complaints relating to weight or finish as long as we have printed the piece on the paper specified. If you are unsure what our paper specifications mean, please order a free sample pack before placing your order.
