We use a production level Canon Inkjet Printer. It looks like this:
How do you protect my prints in transit?
Your prints are rolled into heavyweight tubes for transit. If you request folding instead they are folded and boxed using double wall cartons..
Can you print posters too?
We specialise in plans and drawings here at a1planprinting.co.uk, but if you need posters printed please do visit our sister site here: Print Colchester
Willl you print my plans or drawings today?
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)
Will I receive my prints tomorrow?
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.
Do you deliver to Northern Ireland?
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.
Which courier service do you use to deliver your prints?
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.

Missed our cutoff? Please do give us a call to see if we can still dispatch for next day.
Do you deliver outside of the UK?
Can you print from DWG, Autocad, JPG or TIFF?
No. You need to submit your files to us in PDF format ready for printing.
My PDF is not the correct size. Can you print it bigger or smaller?
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..
I have a coloured PDF, but need it in Black and White. Is that possible?
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.
I need Ordnance Survey maps for my planning application. Can you supply?
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.
I live local to Colchester. Can I pick my prints up from you?
Certainly! Just choose "local collection" for your delivery method and we'll let you know when they are ready.
What size exactly is A1, A0, A2?
Good question. We'll let Wikipedia help you out with that one.
Can you fold my prints for me?
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.
