Printing

As a general rule, we recommend printing rather than copying if you have an electronic copy of your work. It is usually faster and the quality is almost always better. Please see Send Files and Bring Files for how to get your files to us for printing. We also have some tips if you need to print a document which contains a mix of colour and black pages.

Making a PDF can save a lot of the hassle that people often get when they try to print certain types of files, e.g. Word documents. More information can be found on the Make a PDF page.

Our two Xerox DocuColor 550 printer/copiers offer faster and better quality prints than ever before:

  • Up to 60 colour & 65 black pages per minute
  • EFI Fiery RIPs for faster processing with more accurate colour
  • True 2400 x 2400 dpi resolution for sharper images & text
