Public sector organisations will be able to buy printed material in a click and buy way using this self-service platform. It will cater to typically high volume print needs, with a range of cost effective pricing and across multiple suppliers. An overview video is available which highlights the benefits of Print Marketplace and how the system works.
In a few simple steps, you can define your needs and decide which design option is best for you:
- choose from a range of preloaded templates and easily upload your artwork
- customise your design using the free and simple to use online design tool
- use our team of designers – whether you need new concepts or tweaks to existing artwork
Once you’ve selected the right route for you, our instant pricing platform then provides quotes from a range of pre-approved suppliers. The platform will also provide the functionality to keep preferred local suppliers.
You can then compare quotes and use the filters to find the best solution for your needs. Whether that’s the lowest price, the most local supplier, or the quote with the lowest associated CO2 emissions.
Once you’re ready to arrange delivery, we make it easy to meet your social value obligations. Our carbon impact calculator recognises the environmental impact of each job and gives you the option to offset the carbon product CO2E cost.
Through this agreement you can source printed business and marketing material, including:
- business cards
- small direct mail needs

The Print Marketplace agreement will be available across all of the UK for 4 years. All public sector organisations will be able to use this agreement.
