Parcels

If you need to order something online but often miss parcels due to lectures, you can get parcels delivered to the Union instead. Make sure your University username is included on the delivery label, so we can email you once a parcel arrives.

We have limited storage, so please only use this service when necessary.

Printing

The Design Suite has two UniPrint printers/scanners, capable of A3 colour printing. See UniPrint to get set up.

We offer specialist and high-quantity printing, and aim to print items within 5 working days after artwork has been approved (except for clothing).

Before sending us any artwork, ensure it is in PDF format, with CMYK colour and high resolution.

Contact SAdesign@ if you need help designing an item. Note that we charge a £5 design fee for this service.

Send your ticket design and quantity needed to SAdesign@, and we will respond with a quote.

You should use our ticket template to make your design.
