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.

Design Fees

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.
