Prices, Charges & Lead Times
For Design & Print to function fairly and effectively it is necessary to provide sufficient time for work to be produced.
It is recommended that items of stationary should take around 2 weeks to artwork, proof and print. Posters & flyers 3 weeks from design to print. Leaflets and small booklets 3 weeks. More complicated projects such as brochures and exhibitions may take 4 weeks to produce. Other work such as exhibitions or web sites may require 6 weeks, as often the project needs additional planning before the complicated process of construction is undertaken.
The department can on occasions produce work at short notice and also there may be times when service is very busy. Make sure you inform us about your required deadlines and we will endeavor to produce the work on time and within budget.
The majority of the work undertaken by the department is recharged to departments. Given that the department is run on the basis of providing a 'service' to the University, the level of charges are substantially less than those levied by commercial printers. Work, which is outside the remit of the University, is charged at competitive commercial rates.

Quotations can be given for all work undertaken. Please contact the Service for details. Paper prices will depend upon the market price of paper at the time of purchase. The Service works within the University of Wales Purchasing Consortium but closely monitors market prices to ensure the most competitive purchase price.
There is usually no charge for graphic design, web design or photography to University departments requiring promotional material to recruit undergraduate and postgraduate students. However there are penalty charges for late changes to designs or copy. You will receive a job proof sheet with every project which highlights the responsibility of the customer to proof and approve jobs before they are printed.
