Print & Related 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.

It offers a complete solution for all printing, design and reprographics needs with cost savings on typical market rates. The broad range of services includes; prospectus printing, letterheads, postcards, flyers/posters, leaflets, reports, marketing materials, business cards, brochures, guides, banners and design services for these materials. There is also a neutral vendor solution who will work on your behalf to get the best service and pricing from a selected bank of suppliers and manage all subsequent print and design work.

It was awarded on 15th January 2018 and runs to 14th January 2020 with a possible extension to 14th January 2022.
