How to calculate Number of Pages?
While getting a quote, one of the important input is “Number Of Pages”. If given page number is not correct, calculated price will be either under or over, but not the correct amount.
“Number of Pages” is the page count shown on electronic file. Or in practice, it is the number of pages to be printed by PrintPond and delivered to your address. Please find below few examples for possible print job scenarios:
Example 1: If you will upload 52 pages single PDF file on checkout, “Number of Pages” will be 52.
Example 2: If you will upload 3 files, if you prefer 3 files printed same way, if the page numbers for each file are 8, 50 and 10, “Number of Pages” will be 68
Example 3: If you will upload two files with page numbers let’s say 40 and 60, and if you prefer these two files bound together as one book “Number of Pages” will be 100. If you prefer printed and bound as two individual books, you will need to add to basket two print jobs. For the first print job “Number of Pages” will be 40 and for the second print job “Number of Pages” will be 60.
Example 4: If you will upload 10 individual files for 10 named certificates, “Number of Pages” will be 10. If you will upload one blank certificate to be printed 100 copies, “Number of Pages” will be 1 and “Number of Copies” will be 100.
Example 5: You may need to upload many files and you may not know, how many pages you have in total. Place your order with estimated page number, before adding your order to basket in “Any note to print team?” area, drop a note like “page number is estimate”. We will get in touch with you to let you know exact page number. Please note, your delivery may be delayed because of time spent for additional communication, refunding and reordering may be required!
If you order double sided print, please do not halve page number! “Number of pages” doesn’t change, if it is single sided or double sided print. Example: If you have a 100 page document as a word file and if you prefer double sided print, correct “Number Of Pages” would be 100 for both, if it is printed double sided or if it is printed single sided.
