Enjoy this page first, then

Brochures printed at Ex Why Zed attract new business and assist your sales staff to seal the deal.

In 2021, your corporate brochure is THE crucial marketing tool for your brand. It will likely be the first contact point for your business and a lasting memory in a potential clients’ mind. Creating a great first impression will ensure your brochure finds a prime spot on their desk and everytime they shuffle their papers, that’s right, it could be subconsciously winning you a big contract.

With that in mind, welcome to Ex Why Zed, we are specialist brochure printers! We will print you a stunning piece that does justice to your work and products, makes your brand stand out and will make your client reach for it time and time again.


Printing winning brochures

We have been doing this a while now and have seen a lot of impressive publications come off our presses.  To give you a head start with your brochure printing, here are three print specifications which work well (and photos of them, see right).  Each has its own characteristics which have proven to be winning combinations from a production perspective, cost per unit and most importantly, have reader appeal.

If any of our showcase options would work for your project, take a note of the spec and jump on our quote form to receive your bespoke quotation. Or ping us an email on hello@exwhyzed.com if that is easier.

Showcase 1 – a versatile landscape stapled brochure:
A4 Landscape Wire Stitched Books
4pp Cover onto 300gsm Silk
Matt Lamination to outer
32pp Text onto 130gsm Silk
Four colour print throughout.
As a guide, you could print 100 copies of this for £.

Showcase 2 – a comprehensive, perfect bound brochure to display your whole range of products and services:
A5 Perfect Bound Books
4pp Cover onto 300gsm Silk
Matt Lamination to outer
96pp Text onto 120gsm Uncoated
Four colour print throughout
As a guide, you could print 1000 copies of this for £.

Showcase 3 – a cost-effective square, stapled brochure ideal for posting and mass distribution:
210x210mm Wire Stitched Books
32pp Self Cover onto 115gsm Uncoated
Four colour print throughout

Tweaks you could consider…
• Reducing the cover to 250gsm which also makes it easier to open.
• Switching to gloss lamination for a shiny aesthetic.
• Decrease the size to A5 to save you money and make the publication more ergonomic.
• OR increase to A4 or even A3 to create an impressive larger area of content.
• Increase the weight of the inside pages to 170gsm making it more substantial and impressive for the reader.
• Pick a logo or line of text on the cover for Spot UV varnishing or foiling to make it stand out (this is an additional £280).


We are a trusted part of your supply chain

We are proud that a large percentage of our business comes from repeat orders and happy client referrals without the need for expensive advertising campaigns. In turn this helps us keep our prices down which ultimately helps make your projects more commercially viable. Win win!

Ex Why Zed want to become a reliable cog in YOUR supply mechanism. We enjoy doing what we do and take absolute pride in helping all of our customers from start to finish on their print journey.

Here a selection of companies both large and small who regularly trust us with their print projects.



You have found us online, but we are real people

When you get in touch with us, you will speak to someone who knows about your project and is super knowledgable about the print process. We are friendly, patient and crucially accesible so will regularly get back to you out of office hours – not like the part timers at other print companies ๐Ÿ™‚

We don’t believe that you should have to settle for the bare minimum from your print partner. You have spent hours, weeks and months preparing your stunning artwork so why would you now go and give it to a printer where you can get an instant price, upload a pdf, then the files disappear and you have to keep your fingers crossed that what turns up is what you expected?

Your artwork is unique and bespoke, so in turn, we will provide you a unique and bespoke print quote for your job.

Get in contact today and start your print journey with Ex Why Zed.

When printing brochures with Ex Why Zed you get all of the following as standard:
Great Customer Service
We are accessible, friendly and knowledgeable. We care about your project and when you speak to us, you will reach someone who knows about your project and the print process.
Maximum impact
We use the most advanced print presses, HP Indigo digital and Heidelberg Litho, to transform your ideas into print at the best possible quality.
Super Helpful Set Up Guides
We give you all the tools you need to quickly and easily prepare print ready artwork. When it is time to start artworking your final book take 5 minutes to read through our file set up guides. We have made them as user friendly as possible but if you’re stuck drop us a call or email for a quick answer.
Free Paper Samples
While we’ve done our best on our paper choices page to make one sheet of white paper look different to another sheet of white paper, there’s nothing better than seeing them in reality so you can stroke, sniff and examine them in close up. Jump on our form and we will send out a pack out asap.
An impressive array of bespoke options
We are creatives too so offer foiling, embossing, debossing, spot varnishing, die-cutting, motion cutting, fold-out pages, GF Smith papers and many more solutions to make your project unique (these are tailored towards projects with a larger budget).
UK & Worldwide delivery
Delivery within the UK is free. Yes, FREE! The portfolios will arrive the day after they leave us. We also deliver work around the world too and just charge the shipping at our cost price from the cheapest courier on the day.
Choose a bespoke size
'A' sizes are great and fit neatly into 'C' size envelopes but why not mix it up and rebel against convention by choosing a bespoke and custom size for your zine.
Environmentally friendly papers
All of our papers are FSC Approved. These are arguably better than 100% recycled papers because there are fewer chemicals involved in making them. We also use vegetable inks on our litho press.


All the answers for your brochure print questions

If you were “just wondering” about something, well “just wonder” no more, here are the answers!

View all our FAQ's
Where are you based?

We are in England’s oldest town, Colchester.

How do I place my order?

Ready to place an order? Brilliant, you’ll need to upload the files using www.wetransfer.com sending them to hello@exwhyzed.com and in the comments box let us know the number of copies you’re going for and the best address for delivery. We’ll then give your artwork a free preflight check to highlight any potential issues and will email with any advice or recommendations before going to production.

Once we receive your print ready artwork, we’ll aim to deliver in 5/6 working days (we do get busy at degree show time). If you are working to a crucial deadline PLEASE allow more time – there’s no harm in getting the artwork to us early so we can deliver a few days before the show starts 🙂

We have a smooth, no fuss ordering system. Use wetransfer.com to send us the print ready PDF and our eagle eyed pre-press team will give it a preflight check. You will then receive a final PDF proof to check on screen and once that is approved we’ll go to print. Easy!

How long does it take?

This depends a little on what exactly you would like to print but, in general, we will aim to deliver the finished brochures in 5 working days after receiving your print-ready artwork (bespoke options do add more time).  If you are working to a crucial hand in deadline then we strongly advise leaving more time in case there are any artwork issues with your files or courier problems with delivery.

Additionally there can be a day or two of amends required to the artwork before it’s print ready which we’re more than happy to help with but you’ll need to factor that in to timings.

Remember, we’ll need a hi res pdf file with 3mm bleed and crop marks on each edge to go ahead please. Sending it over correctly first time means we can go straight to print. Do have a last check through our file set up guides to make sure all the boxes are ticked.

How do I pay?

Once we have checked your artwork we will send over an invoice for you to pay by online bank transfer or credit card through Stripe.

Why aren’t your prices online?

We like to interact with our customers, find out about their projects and have a bit of dialogue rather than hide behind a website. For this reason we don’t list all our prices online but get in touch either in email or through our quote form and we will give you a bespoke quote.
