The Document Centre is very excited to announce a new Same Day printing service for London. It can be thought of it as an emergency printing service and, as such, will be useful to those who need printing in a real hurry, those who have been let down by another supplier or those who have simply left things until the last minute. Whatever the reason, with our new “Urgent Printing” service, printing will be ready on the same day it was ordered. Orders are taken on our new bespoke website which has been set up specifically to handle quick-turnaround printing orders.

“In by 3pm, ready by 5pm”

The motto on our Urgent Printing logo sums it up: “In by 3pm, ready by 5pm”. So you can see that even a 2 hour turnaround is also on offer but, if you want a bit more detail about the timing options, see below:

Timing & Speed – Your Options:

Orders are processed from 08:30am to 5:30pm (week days).
