Frequently Asked Questions
We use a range of production quality Canon Inkjet Printers to produce your prints.
This service and price range is limited to producing light coverage prints suitable for building and construction plans. We advise up to around 10% coverage on the sheet and will refund purchases that go above that kind of range.
We can however print full colour posters with higher coverage onto our thicker 190gsm poster stock. There is a price implication for this which is detailed below:
A2 Full Colour Posters - £5
A1 Full Colour Posters - £10
A0 Full Colour Posters - £20
These prices do not include VAT
If we need to upgrade you to this service we will get in contact so that you can make payment. If you are unsure of the suitability of your files please give us a call so we can discuss, or email your files to email@example.com
Your prints are rolled into heavyweight tubes for transit. If you request folding instead they are folded and boxed using double wall cartons..
We aim to print all drawings submitted before 3pm same day. We work Monday to Friday, so orders made on the weekend will be processed on the next working day (usually Monday unless it is a bank holiday etc)
We aim to deliver all orders received before 2:00pm the next working day. We use 24 hour couriers to make this happen for most parts of the UK.
We use Parcel Force to deliver plots over to Northern Ireland. This means that they take an extra day, and will be deliver within two working days of printing.
We use APC couriers to deliver the majority of our prints. At our discretion we may use a different courier or postal service if necessary.
Our timed delivery sources of course demand a signature to confirm safe receipt. If you are not in to sign for the delivery our courier will leave a card giving you the opportunity to arrange a redelivery at another time. At the discretion of the courier company you may be able to collect from the depot, or arrange to leave with a nominated neighbour.
Express Next Day delivery is £12.50+ VAT.
Standard (3 day) delivery is £8.50+VAT
Please remember to submit your drawings before 2:00pm if you require next day delivery.
Missed our cutoff? Please do give us a call to see if we can still dispatch for next day.
No. You need to submit your files to us in PDF format ready for printing.
Yes we can and we will - just order the size you need and we will fit it to the page size ordered. But be careful if you are scaling from these drawings, as this can cause the scale to no longer be correct..
Of course - just order the correct product and we'll print it in the correct manner. Please do leave a note in the order details to make sure.
Strange you should mention it, but yes - we can! Just visit our sister site http://www.printcolchester.co.uk/shop/planning-application-maps/ to order, or call us on 01206 368881 to discuss your requirements further.
Certainly! Just choose "local collection" for your delivery method and we'll let you know when they are ready.
Good question. We'll let Wikipedia help you out with that one.
We offer folding at an extra cost of 50p per print. We carefully fold your prints down to A4 by hand. Due to the nature of this process some slight size variation may occur.
If you require folding for placement inside binders please let us know when you order. We may make any extra charge for this service.
