“Proof” is the most important aspect of science, mathematics, literature, law, and just about any other field of study you can think of. Proof is also necessary to assure that what is being presented is true and correct. Scientists need to prove any theory they come up with through experimentation and research. Mathematicians construct proofs that are multiple pages long of complex formulas to pro...

The Office Post Feature

The folks in the show "The Office" at Dunder Mifflin were known for selling paper, but here at Replica we're known for our fast and easy same day and next day printing services. Since the Replica Printing office is as tight knit and fun as the office at Dunder Mifflin we thought it would be a perfect comparison. Check out our rendition of The Office intro and get a look behind the scenes here at R...
A bird's-eye view of all of the booth displays at San Diego Comic Con

We recently wrote a blog article about San Diego Comic Con in which we described the things that you may need when preparing for a convention.

Simply put, a short run publication is a magazine that can be printed in quantities as low as just a single print. Digitally, we can print a publication up to 64 pages, front and back...

If you are a print customer, you have probably heard the terms "Points" or "Pounds" in reference to the thickness of the paper types you have to choose from. For example, a 16 point gloss cover stock, or 20 pound bond. What exactly does this mean, though? How is this measured?

A lot of times you will see "Next Day" and "Same Day" printing advertised at various print shops or especially online print companies.

You will have the final product(s) in your hand the next day or the same day if that is ...

All of the above are common misconceptions about print and this article will take you through why that is and what the contrary is.

In our last article, we spoke about oversize printing for trade shows and conventions. If you've ever been to a trade show, convention or any event with a lot of signage, you've probably come across a foam core mounted sign of some kind. Foam core is lightweight, and easily cut material used for the mounting of photographic prints. It is made up of three layers. The inner layer is made of polyst...
