University of Brighton Reprographics

The service

We aim to meet all the University’s needs for routine printing, photocopying and stationery. A full range of commercial standard print technologies are used from high-speed bulk photocopying to multiple colour offset printing. Large or specialist jobs are arranged with outside printers; no extra charge is added to their price for this organising service.

For all University work a charge is made for each job done – usually to your school or department cost centre. Thanks to the way the service is funded, these charges are kept low. Reprographics’ prices for copying/printing runs of ten copies and over are normally cheaper than for your departmental copier.

1.1  Student copying and binding service

A copying and binding service available to students for reports, t h e s i s , dissertations, large/wide format and jobs where the finished pages are bound together. Ask at the counter for details and a while you wait service.

1.2  Colour copying

Colour copying at Moulsecoomb is now ‘a while you wait’ over-the-counter service at the same low prices that have been charged for the last few years. See the separate leaflet for details – A4, A3, A2, A1, A0

1.5  What we cannot do

Printing bigger than SRA3 (450 x 320mm); copying bigger than A0; preparation of artwork or graphic design, paste-up and word-processing; the University prospectuses, which are specialist, high-volume production jobs.

1.6  Speed

The service operates on a first-come-first-served basis and aims to meet all deadlines. Minimum turn-round times cannot be guaranteed at peak times of the year and the way to avoid disappointment is to think ahead and plan well in advance. This is critical around the beginning of the academic year. Letterheads, compliment slips and other routine printing should normally be ordered while you still have three to four weeks’ supply.

  • Normal service – can take from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the job. Staff can usually provide a guide as to how long your job may take.
  • Fast service – twenty four hour turn-round is available for simple jobs if you can deliver and pick up. ‘Simple’ means maximum job size of 20 originals and 100 copies.
  • Emergency service – while-you-wait service when workload and time permit for those real emergencies; like when your copier is out of order or you work in a

department without a copier.

Maximum job size of 10 originals and 20 copies.

1.7  For more advice…

For any of the above, or if you can’t find exactly what you need here, please contact O f f i c e o n 2 7 8 9 o r Print Room 2417. Advice on all aspects of preparing print work is a key part of the service (see website & print room/counter staff). Reprographics staff can arrange specialist printing by commercial printers when necessary. You will only be charged the contractor’s price for the job. Reprographics do not charge for negotiating and placing work. Quotes are always obtained for your approval before the job is placed.

1.8  Getting jobs done

Hard copy, disks and CD’s can submitted in person to Room G13A or G9 Cockcroft or by using the internal mail/courier service. Web submission is the easiest and quickest way (see the following pages). In certain circumstances documents may be sent as e-mail enclosures, but by special arrangement with Reprographics only, as slight differences in software can alter your formatting.

Your finished jobs will be put into the internal mail or courier service (check Cockcroft Premises Office x 2710 for latest traffic news). Personal collection from Cockcroft G13A or G9 is a good option especially if your job is urgent.

1.9  Copyright

Do be careful about copyright. The University holds a license from the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) which allows the copying of most categories of published material for teaching purposes. However, there are certain important exclusions and conditions with which the University must comply and other licences for specific
