Design and print process

A quotation is given to you before the start of any project. This represents the total cost of the project, including design, project management and other services such as print-buying and picture research where requested.

If additional design work is required which falls outside the project brief, an hourly design charge of £48 will apply. We will keep you informed throughout the process if and when any additional charges may be incurred so there are no surprise costs upon completion.

We obtain competitive bids from printers to ensure the best cost for the quality required. We charge a print management fee of 10% of the cost of print, up to a ceiling of £500, in order to cover our costs. There is a minimum fee of £50.

Departments may also benefit from highly preferential print rates. The Studio Manager will be able to advise you on these rates.

If you have budget restrictions, let us know. We may be able to find a cost-effective solution to your communication challenge.

Please be aware that colleges will be charged VAT in addition to the rates quoted.
