Your Downtown Wilmington Print Shop
What We Do
“The team at DLS Creative is truly the best around! They have assisted us with a variety of projects over the past few years at Ursuline Academy – everything from mailings, design, and printed marketing materials. Their work is high quality and they are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend!”
— Brittany K
“The DLS team is phenomenal! I had a last minute printing project and thanks to their extremely fast turnaround, I was able to meet my deadline. Would not have happened without their extremely quick service. I also love that they have a creative team who will make edits, as needed, to ensure the best results. Christina is super friendly and made me aware of each step of the process until completion. We look forward to using them in the future for all of our printing projects.”

Frequently Asked Questions
What are crops marks and why are they important?
There are slight fluctuations that happen during the digital print process, mostly in registration and double sided print. Building in crop marks and bleed ensures that we will cut your print pieces to the exact size that you ordered without seeing white slivers around the outside of the piece.
Can you explain to me what full bleed means?
Full bleed is a design or print piece that has color bleed all the way to the edge.
What is a vector graphic?
A vector graphic consists of paths, which are defined by a start and end point, along with other points, curves and angles along the way. With an extension of .EPS a vector graphic has all areas of a design converted to outlines so that the file can be read correctly by our digital presses. Vector graphics are typically required for contour vinyl installations and promotional products.
Is there a benefit to running my mail through bulk?
The main benefit to processing your mail as bulk mail through our production facility, is that we have the capability of applying postage discounts to your job based on the amount of mail you are printing. The more mail you have to print, the more you will ultimately save in postage and processing a job as bulk.
Do you have special pricing for non-profit organizations?
Yes – We have tiered pricing that breaks out any order amount. Our team will always advise you of price breaks to make sure you are making the most of your marketing dollars.
