An Urgent Printing Service in London

An Urgent Printing Service in London

Do you have an urgent printing job that simply MUST be turned around super-fast? If so, Southside Print can help. Subject to timing and workload, we offer:

  • Same day printing service for LondonA same day printing service in London;
  • Next day delivery for many locations* in the UK;
  • Next day print & dispatch, for arrival anywhere in the UK* in 2-3 days;
  • Plus our usual fast turnarounds for less urgent printing.

Same Day Printing Service for London

More often than not, we can turn around printing on the same day for local customers, particularly if we’re given advanced warning and artwork files are supplied according to pre-agreed timetables. If you’re in London, we can courier your printed jobs to you later on the same day, or they will be available to collect from our print shop near London Bridge and Borough, London SE1. Depending on the size of your printing job, the latest we’d usually need your artwork files and sign-off to proceed is 1pm, but obviously the earlier the better with timing being so short.

Printing Needed Within Just Hours?

If your print job is even more super-urgent, talk to us. Depending upon workloads and existing commitments, it may even be possible to turn around some jobs within just a few hours. While it’s not quite a while-you-wait service, it’s the next best thing.

Next Day, 24-Hour Printing Service

We can deliver printing by overnight courier in around in 2-3 days anywhere in the UK*24-hour print turn around is also available for those jobs that simply must be with you the next working day, wherever you are in the UK. Our 24-hour print service will suit companies, organisations and individuals anywhere in the UK* as we can dispatch via overnight courier for next-day* delivery. It helps, of course, if we are forewarned so that we can clear the decks, ready for your job and to ensure that we have the right paper/volume ready. It works best when our clients hand over artwork files and/or give us sign-off to proceed no later than the times that we will have pre-agreed. Usually, the latest we’d need them is 1pm, but it does depend upon the size and complexity of the print job.

* Subject to availability. Some areas of the UK, for example more remote islands, may not be eligible for next day delivery via overnight courier, simply due to the limitations of the courier services themselves.

Next Day Dispatch (2-3 Day Service)

We are a green printer & even use cycle couriers for delivery in LondonThis is similar to the above, except the printing is dispatched the day after we receive the artwork and order to proceed, so will usually take a day longer to arrive with customers. We usually require artwork files and sign-off to proceed no later than 3pm on the first day.

We are a Green Printer!

Did you know that Southside Print is a very green printer? We’re even attaining ISO 14001 accreditation. There are not many eco-friendly printers around who will also be able to turn around printing super-fast, so bear us in mind next time you require urgent printing that’s also produced in a sustainable way, using recycled or eco-friendly materials and green processes.

Southside Print & Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Southside Print Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update & Poster

To confirm, we are ‘open for business here’ at Southside Print in London SE1, despite Coronavirus/COVID-19. We are fully operative for all services including graphic design, printing and production. Just let us know if you need any print and design produced and we’ll be very happy to help.

“We are operating an uninterrupted service”

It goes without saying, though, that we are taking extra precautions to help fight the spread of the virus. For example:

  • Staff have altered shifts so as to avoid travelling on public transport;
  • We’re avoiding all travel to other countries;
  • We’re avoiding physical contact, for example hand-shaking, and maintaining a sensible distance between ourselves and others;
  • We’re regularly washing hands – thoroughly with soap – as well as using anti-bac hand sanitiser;
  • We’re regularly hygienically cleaning our premises, in particular any well-used areas like door handles, keyboards, desks, etc;
  • We’ve published and displayed a Coronavirus & COVID-19 ‘best practice’ poster in the shop and at strategic points around the production areas. Copies are available for sale to anyone interested (follow the bold link above).
  • Any staff who are not directly involved in production are working from home, for example our back-office work, quotations, business administration using cloud-based systems and so on;
  • We hold meetings via phone contact, video calls, Skyping, iMessaging and conference calls;
  • We’re asking customers and prospects to liaise with us remotely.
  • We are sharing work between our two print and production sites in London, so are adaptable should one geographical location become more adversely affected than the other;
  • And, of course, we’re continuously monitoring the situation and are following Government guidelines.

So, the message is that we are operating an uninterrupted service. Rest assured that quality and service levels remain excellent, as always.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) posters available to buy online

Coronavirus poster to buy onlineIn an effort to play our part in the fight against Coronavirus and COVID-19, we’ve originated some posters that individuals, companies and organisations can buy online. Outlining useful advice and best practice, they’re perfect for displaying on office walls, in receptions, in windows, on notice boards, in entrances to buildings and so on. That’s a great way to help keep staff, customers and visitors safe and should be a real help as part of Health & Safety (HS) in the workplace.

The posters include very important information and guidelines including:

  • Likely symptoms of Coronavirus/COVID-19;
  • Countries at high risk (particularly useful for regular or recent travellers);
  • Advice for those who have symptoms or those who have recently travelled from ‘at risk’ countries;
  • Guidelines outlining how to limit the spread of the virus;
  • Illustrated instructions demonstrating best practice for both hand washing and hand sanitising.

The posters are available to buy online. They are A3 in size and are gloss laminated, allowing the surface to be wiped clean. They cost £15 excluding VAT and postage. Most credit and debit cards are accepted, as well as PayPal.

The latest information and advice on Coronavirus & COVID-19 is available at the NHS website.

Digital Printing for Tic Toc Nursery School

Digital printing for Tic Toc NurseryThis month, we feature Tic Toc Nursery School, a business that is located in Twickenham, Middlesex, so is a little further away than businesses and organisations usually featured on the blog. We welcome such work, though, as we can dispatch printing by overnight courier to virtually any part of the UK.

Digital printing of leaflets

Tic Toc Nursery School came to us recently, through a recommendation. We have been busy printing a set of 3000 leaflets for them and these are A5 in size, double-sided, and digitally printed in full colour onto 170gsm silk stock. Such a finish and the paper weight itself give the leaflets a feel of quality as they’re reasonably thick with a much nicer look and feel compared to the thinner, cheaper materials available elsewhere on the printing market. The medium quantity and small sheet size of this job were a perfect fit for our digital printer which, through using its plateless process, also allows for a faster turnaround than would have been achieved using our litho printing presses.

About Tic Toc Nursery School

Tic Toc has been serving Twickenham and the surrounding areas as a nursery for over 25 years and has recently changed ownership. Already, improvements are being seen including the renovation of the garden, which now has new gravel, a sand pit and a mud kitchen for the toddlers to explore. They can also enjoy the vegetable patch and an outdoor play area is under development for babies. New arrivals to the garden also come in the form of chickens and rabbits, which now call Tic Toc Nursery School their home!

As well as being a fun place for toddlers to be, Tic Toc aims to Read more
