Print and Design Services

Why buy from the National Public Sector Framework?

The framework is compliant with procurement regulations and is accessible to any organisation within the public sector or private sector. 

This is a retender of the previous print and related framework to make it more relevant to the print and design market by including digital alternatives, amended lot structure and social value. This especially includes more detailed innovation requirements and the need to deliver Social Value/added value to members. Below is the lot structure where print and design have been merged to create one lot where members can utilise both services or as stand-alone services e.g. print or print and design.

• Lot 1: Print and design

• Lot 2: Fully Managed Print Service

The general types of products that this framework will cover include but are not limited to the following elements:

• Flyers

• Curriculum Booklets

• Posters

• Wall Stickers

• Basic design, artwork, and page layout

• Alternative formats e.g., Braille different language

• Digital Assets

The framework provides added value throughout when compared to other public sector frameworks. The framework is:
