The CopyShop adheres to a set Service Level Agreement (SLA) which is reviewed by senior managers monthly.
Where a project is of high value or your area demands bespoke services, the CopyShop will agree a bespoke project/department SLA.
The following set of services are deemed to be included within the SLA:-
For orders supplied to the CopyShop we will supply an estimate for approval from the customer. Once approval has been made on the estimate we shall produce a digital proof (hard copy proofs are available upon request) for customer approval. Only after we have final customer approval will we go into production.
NB - Exception to the above will be for assignment, course work and exam paper printing.
Estimates (Internal) – For projects that can solely be produced internally we will provide estimates within 4 hours.
Estimates (External) - For projects that require partial or are solely externally placed we will provide estimates within 24 hours. We will notify at time of request if there are external components within your specification.
Production (Internal) - Internally produced projects will require a minimum of 2 working days. Confirmed turnaround times will be provided upon approval of artwork.
Production (External) - Externally produced projects will require a minimum of 3 working days. Confirmed turnaround times will be provided upon approval of artwork.
