This is the busy time of the year for our education printing service.
Schools are about to break for the summer term and thoughts are now on the next academic year’s intake.
Many parents and pupils start to consider their options and decisions can be critical.
Playgroups, nurseries, schools, academies and colleges all benefit from effective education printing.
Printing remains one of the most powerful forms of communication – even within this largely digital world.
It offers something tangible that parents and children can feel, touch and even display for others to see.
You can assimilate all the vital information and present it in the best possible way.
Education Printing – The Prospectus
The prospectus is the focus of most of our education printing.
It can capture the spirit and values that the school wishes to project.
It explains the school ethos to potential parents and students alike.
It provides a valuable introduction and often that very important first impression.
Printing provides that extra touch of quality not available when relying on just digital communications.
Our education printing services offer a wide range of special finishes – including spot UV and die cut finishes.
If required, we can arrange for a digital video prospectus that will help to reduce the need for printing large quantities.
However, it is always advisable to have a supply of smaller quantity printed prospectus’s.
With digital printing there is no minimum quantity – we can arrange to print any quantity.
There is also the advantage of fast delivery – we have been known to print and despatch within the same working day!
If you are interested in our range of prices contact us and we will send you information about our Education Printing services.
Prospectus printing prices are based upon quantity and the number of printed pages.
If you want any assistance with the graphic design – our costs start at just £40 for putting together any item of your education printing.
In some cases the Prospectus is printed as a folder – with a useful wallet added on the back cover for extra pages to be inserted.
Education Printing – Award Evening Booklets & Certificates
It is now common to recognise achievement in all forms of educational establishment.
We print Awards Evening booklets or programmes as well as a wide range of certificates.
Booklets can be ordered online or we can prepare a bespoke print quote for your education printing needs.
Similarly we offer a range of Certificates for online orders – you simply upload your own artwork or a file for all named recipients.
Education Printing – Year Books
Year Books act as a memento to pupils who have grown up through a school together.
With mobile phones now having high quality photographic capability they largely consist of photographic memories of their times together.
These are usually printed and perfect bound.
We have a price list for perfect bound booklets. The price list serves as a guideline for the cost or you can contact us for a bespoke print quote.
Artwork is saved in a slightly different way than for stapled booklets.
Remember to check our artwork guidelines when preparing to send files for commercial printing.
Education Printing – Stationery
Designing a school logo can cost as little as £60 with our graphic design service.
Typically letterheads are printed in colour allowing the school to overprint the letter in mono on their own equipment for a much lower cost.
Our print management service is also a cost-effective service for managing the expenditure of education printing.
It allows for effective ordering, better control and accountability and less wastage.
Print management avoids all the direct and indirect costs of printing procurement.
Education Printing – Posters & Signage
Printed signs and graphics are an important part of our education printing services.
Clear signage is something that is becoming increasingly important and we can advise on the best options available.
We offer posters, leaflets, programmes and external banners as well as roll up banners for Open Evenings, Annual Fayres or School Fetes.
Roller or Pop-Up Banners also work well being on general display within reception areas.
Education Printing – ID Cards & Lanyards
ID Card holders are now seen in most schools and colleges as a form of security.
The inserts can be just handwritten, printed or simply just have a simple “Visitor” insert.
We can supply a range of different ID cards on plastic and card material.
Lanyards can also be supplied either plain or printed – and usually in a range of colours that match the school colours.
