Bespoke print, promotional products and signage

Print Services is able to undertake much of the print you are likely to need, however certain specialist or larger projects may be more suitable for litho printing rather than digital printing. It is always best to liaise with our highly skilled team who will be able to advise as to the best solution for your requirements, potentially saving time and money.

Litho printing is used primarily for high volume colour print jobs. It requires more time and work to set up, but gives a reduced unit cost on larger print runs. The higher the volume, the cheaper the unit cost.

It is also the perfect choice for those jobs which require specific paper stocks or an exact colour match to Pantone references.

The size of the finished product will also be relevant as Litho printing allows the use of larger paper sizes - whereas the University’s in-house presses have a maximum size of 330mm x 1200mm.

Once you have supplied your final PDF artwork files, we will send you a ripped PDF proof for your approval, this is your last check before printing commences. A minimum of 5 working days is required once the ripped PDF proof has been approved.

We also supply letterheads pre-printed with the University of Bristol logo, to which you can add addresses, contact details and other, approved, logos. Guidance on where to place other logos on letterheads (PDF, 173KB) is available.

Please complete the Bespoke Print Request Form (Office document, 90kB) and email to and we will do the rest, including sending a PDF proof for approval before printing.
