Black and white copying
Central Reprographics has three high-volume print devices for this purpose, therefore freeing up excessive staff time spent using departmental or public copiers.
Booklets can be produced in house in A5 and A4 formats in full colour or black and white (or a mixture thereof). Reprographics offers a variety of booklet formats including saddlestitched (folded and stapled), tape bound and coil bound.
Reprographics print business cards for staff and introduction cards for students. They come in sets of 200 and are charged at £20 per set. Their format is controlled by the School's style policy. For more information, please see LSE Stationery.
Reprographics has a Konica Minolta digital colour production press. This facility offers quality colour work, up to A3 and SRA3 sizes. The device also has an onlne booklet maker (see above). For larger sizes of printing, Reprographics has excellent external suppliers who will turn submissions around at competitive prices with good lead times.
Should customers have concerns with the service or products that Reprographics is offering we commit to resolving these as quickly as possible. See Resolving Complaints. Reprographics also has a feedback form for any feedback or suggestions for improvement of service.
Reprographics produces compliment slips in sets of 500. For more information please see LSE Stationery.
Copy Cards for self-service copying
Copy cards can be issued to staff within any department. See Card Readers.These are for use at the open access facilities. The cards are issued with 1000 credits charged to departmental budgets at £35 (0.035p per copy). The cards can be topped up in multiples of 1000, however it is recommended that top ups are kept to a minimum in case of the event of loss. We also supply paper disposable cards which can be topped up to 500 units.
The School takes the issue of copyright very seriously. Please ensure that any original work you provide to us for copying complies with the School's Copyright Policy. If there is any doubt as to the legality of any print request, Reprographics reserves the right to put requests on hold pending clarification of the matter from the relevant copyright body.
All work is delivered directly to your office or workplace as soon as possible after printing. Delivery times are from 09.30 to 17.30 Monday to Friday. If you need to collect the work yourself or require Reprographics to hold on to your work then please contact the Office Manager on extension 7986 and we will be happy to work to your requirements.
Customers should be aware of the difference between low resolution and high resolution images. Many customers will use internet images from their screen, which is probably the lowest resolution possible and not suitable for any form of quality print.
Electronic print submission - Eprint
Reprographics uses Eprint, an electronic print submission system for ordering print requirements online.The first time that customers use Eprint they will need to register their details i.e. Name, Department, Location, Budget Code. See the user guide. Once a document is uploaded to Eprint, it will be stored in the user's library for up to six months.
All faults with regard to the photocopying provision on campus should be reported to the Office Manager on ext 7986 or emailed to Repro.Admin@lse.ac.uk
