True Cost of Printing
Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about Mimeo Print and answers from our expert team.
What is print on-demand?
Print on-demand (POD) is a type of order fulfillment where documents are printed only when, and as soon as, an order is placed. With POD technology, you can print in single or small quantities, rather than pre-printing materials in bulk. There are no minimum order requirements. The main benefit of POD is the ability to print the exact number of documents you need, when you need them, reducing costs and eliminating waste from unused, excess documents. In addition, POD lets you personalize documents via variable data printing (VDP). VDP allows for customization of elements, such as text, graphics, and images, from one printed piece to the next.

What happens to my documents in the event of a power outage at a Mimeo production facility?
Mimeo has an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in place at all of our production facilities. In the event of power failure caused by outages or inclement weather, Mimeo’s production facilities automatically utilize UPS, ensuring continuous operation and full security implementation.
Mimeo’s UPS operates for 3 consecutive days without refueling. Additionally, contracts are in place that guarantee Mimeo priority during extended crisis events. We pride ourselves in being available for our customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How fast can I ship documents?
Mimeo allows you to ship your documents quickly. If you submit your order by 9 PM ET, we can deliver it to any destination in the US as soon as the next morning.
How does Mimeo prevent document waste?
Every Mimeo Print order is unique, produced on-demand through a defined production process. Mimeo’s production facilities work in conjunction with on-demand orders, by only producing orders in the quantity needed at the time needed. This helps us to levelize our production, eliminate the need for inventory, and reduce document waste.
Who at Mimeo has access to my content, documents, and files?
Employees are only granted access to those tools required to complete the tasks assigned to them. The Mimeo production process is managed by sophisticated, computerized systems that govern all access control and task allocation to fully prevent any unnecessary access.
How do you manage data file security?
Each time a file is uploaded to Mimeo, a unique certificate is automatically assigned to the user. The file can only be decrypted by Mimeo during the transfer of this data. A secure protocol (HTTPS) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) are utilized within all of Mimeo’s platforms. These are the same encrypted document transfer technologies utilized by financial and retail institutions. Numerous financial services companies in the Fortune 100 entrust Mimeo to secure their documents.

How do you implement version control?
Mimeo not only enables sites to have their own file repository, we also provide users with a robust content library. This includes the ability to securely store, save, and share documents through their individual content libraries. Additional sharing permissions can be set for documents, such as read-only, customize, or full control. Our customers often organize their libraries, permissioning access to the most current folders of their content. Outdated content can be removed or archived, organization wide from a single account, eliminating any room for error in terms of version control.
Can I upload any file type to Mimeo Print?
You can upload PDF and Microsoft Word files as well as certain types of image files to Mimeo Print. Specifically, Mimeo Print supports jpg, jpeg, PNG, gif, bmp, tiff, and tif file types. If you would like to upload another file type, like a video, you should check out our Mimeo Digital platform.
What if my content isn’t quite fitting into folds, panels, or cutlines?
Mimeo Print’s online proof will show you what your document will look like. If your content isn’t quite fitting with the folds or cutlines of a document, we provide free templates for download.
