we deliver creative and pre-press solutions for publishers
Here at PDQ we really do care about quality. Not just quality of service, but the quality of the finished product. We have strict quality control policies in place at every level of every project, regardless of size or value.
We won’t just tell you what needs to be done. We listen and respond to your feedback at every stage. We realise that the needs of each client will be different, which means our service will be tailored for you and just you.
We keep a very keen eye on costs, because we know that you do too. We provide competitive pricing for any project, by-the-hour, or all-inclusive, that way you know exactly how much, before we begin your project.
Managing a project successfully is often the most important aspect of our service. We provide exceptionally well honed project management skills that cover initial concepts and ideas to the finished and highly polished product.
We’re technology- led but we never forget the personal touch.
