A partnership in print

The challenge

Queen’s University Belfast required a single supplier to provide a comprehensive print management service and an on-campus reprographic service to produce all their printed materials.

The contract also required related services including art-working, brand compliance, exhibition and display materials, fulfilment and direct mail.

The solution

  • CDS re-equipped the on-campus Print Centre
  • Assigned dedicated CDS team of digital and lithographic print experts to advise university staff and students
  • To save QUB time and money, we recommended our online web2print solution, Template Central
  • To control their brand, we recommended that QUB move a number of publications, to Template Central. This meant users could design their own publications with defined templates and approved images
  • Guaranteed 24-hour delivery on all print orders placed using Template Central

The result

Friendly expert advice on the most cost-effective print method combined with on-campus digital print savings returned a 14% saving per year, against an £800K print budget.
