Newsletter Printing

We need a new supplier to print our newsletters. Can you ask your employer/school/college if they can help?

Our newsletter is usually 16 pages of A4 printed double sided in black and white, high quality photocopies or direct printing both work well. We usually print 200 copies, twice a year, 3200 sheets each time, that is 6.4 standard packs of paper. At consumer prices the paper cost is less than £20 each time. There is of course the additional cost of toner but it is not a large financial burden overall. We will pay the consumable costs if a donor will allow us to print on their printer. We are an all volunteer organisation.

Richard Fox took part in the Brighton to Addlestone bike ride,and raised £527.50 for CVSA, his daughter's nursery raised a further £245. A fantastic effort, thanks to all who contributed. He also promoted text giving so there may be even more to come. He promoted this on his blog, if you have a web site or blog, please consider doing the same.
