PRINT SERVICES CENTER

Print Services Center

Looking to keep costs down while producing eye-catching, professional, and targeted print and promotional pieces?

The BCIU Print Services Center provides professional printing services for any size job in color or black+white at a price that beats the cost of taking your printing needs to a local printing company or office supply store.

We understand that your staff’s time is extremely valuable, which is why outsourcing your copying and folding needs to the BCIU Print Services Center can create efficiencies throughout your district or non-profit organization. For many school districts and non-profits, large printing and bindery is no longer feasible in-house. Allow us to take on those responsibilities for you! The BCIU Print Services Center can free up hours of your time and provide peace of mind: projects done professionally and within your budget.

We encourage you to contact the BCIU’s Print Services Center so we can help you save time, money, and improve the look of your finished printing projects. All of this can be done without ever having to leave your building. Send your files electronically and we will have the completed work delivered to your school’s location at no extra charge via the Inter-District Courier Service. Non-profit groups can pick up their orders or request shipping via UPS ground.

Please contact us for a free estimate on your upcoming project. We look forward to hearing from you!
