Print Marketplace - RM6071

Print marketplace

Our self-service Print Marketplace is easy way for the public sector to save on printing. Here’s what you can expect.

Designed for, and in consultation with, the public sector, Print Marketplace will provide a competitive, compliant and simple way to purchase print. We understand that across the public sector, print is something which is purchased by a variety of professions, each with differing requirements, knowledge and expertise.

For this reason, Print Marketplace has been designed with simplicity at its heart, meaning you can: 

  • Quickly and easily define your requirements
  • Compare prices
  • Select a supplier
  • Arrange secure delivery

With just a few clicks of a button, you can purchase professional printing for the best possible price. 

Whether you’re a school business manager who wants to use a local SME, a university marketing manager who wants the flexibility of designing collateral safe in the knowledge the due diligence has been taken care of, or a local authority procurement manager who needs 3 quotes before you can contract, Print Marketplace is for you.

What you can expect:

With nothing to install and no license needed, it’s easy to get started.

User-friendly and intuitive, buyers are guided, step-by-step, through the print-buying journey. If you need support at any point, our experts are available to provide sector-specific advice via a live chat.

In a few simple steps, you can define your requirements 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 
  • Utilise 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 wide range of pre-approved suppliers while providing the functionality to retain 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 provides the option to offset the carbon product CO2E cost.

Designed to meet the needs of all public sector organisations including central government, charities, housing, education, emergency services, local authority and NHS establishments.

  • Putting our Print Marketplace solution to the test
    One of the most frequently asked questions I get asked is ‘How does your Print Marketplace solution work?’. To be able to offer the best service possible to our customers, I decided to try our print marketplace for myself. Throughout this blog, I share my experience and the challenges I faced along the way.

  • Sustainable printing for the public sector 
  • As part of your social value objectives, you may be considering how to ensure any print requirements are aligned to your environmental and sustainability goals. Ordering print through a government-backed system such as Print Marketplace can help you meet these requirements through a range of sustainability initiatives.

    • Print Marketplace Social Value Stats
      We have collaborated with Crown Commercial Service and APS Group to bring the public sector a revolutionary print platform that focuses on more than just cost so that our customers can achieve the best value from every direction while contributing to organisational and social value goals.
