Printing Process and Delivery FAQs

Quality takes time. Here are our estimated turnaround times:

Single and double-sided posters – around 2 weeks, but do let us know if you have any special timeframe to work to.

Single- and double-sided maps (without covers) – 2-3 weeks.

Single- and double-sided maps (with attached covers) – 3 weeks.

Posters FAQs

We can print to a maximum size of 1100mm x 1600mm. Minimum size is 640mm x 1020mm.

Our large format printing and folding capability enables us to print a large format size poster that can then be trimmed to size and left flat; or a large format size poster that can be folded down to a convenient size. 

For example, an AO size of 841mm x1189mm can be folded down to an A4 size of 297mm x 210mm for inclusion in packs with other materials.

Quote FAQs

Yes, the quote that you receive back from us will include the delivery of the proof and usually to one bulk UK mainland address.

Please note that depending on where you are, it can take longer than just the 1 working day.

If a second or multiple deliveries are required, then please request this in your quote request.

If you’re unsure about whether your delivery address is included in your price, or if you want an estimate of how many days it will take for your order to reach you (after it is dispatched), then drop us an email or give us a call.

Truth be told, it just isn’t that simple. Your map, chart or poster will vary in price depending on size, type of paper and printed sides and colours. If you want an accurate price, the best way is to request a quotation.

This is a list of essentials that would help us to accurately produce a quotation for you:

  • Who you are and your contact details
  • Project or map / chart / poster title
  • Quantities
  • Flat open trim size
  • Folded size
  • Is it printed one or both sides?
  • Is it printed in 4 colours and are there any pantones?
  • Your preferred paper type and grammage
  • Does it require a separate attached cover?
  • Any special packing requirements
  • Where it is to be delivered

Maps and charts are exempt from VAT, but please note that posters are not exempt.
