 Is my item in stock?

As the majority of items we sell are made specifically for you and not stock items, this will impact the delivery time. As a guide:

  • C coded products, especially those that require personalisation and including most posters, banners and invitations are printed especially for you. Certain popular C coded products are held in stock, subject to demand e.g. pastoral cards.
  • All other coded products (e.g. Z, Y and V codes) have been carefully selected, and are held in stock or ordered subject to season and demand.
  • Our outreach advisors (sales@cpo.org.uk /tel. 01903-263354) can give further guidance for specific products.

 How long will it take before I receive my items?

Once we have received and processed your order, as the majority of products are produced on demand and made specifically for you, your shipment of goods will normally be dispatched within 5 to 7 working days. At peak times (e.g. in November/December) these turnaround times will become longer, and for this reason we recommend placing your order early. Please note that in the event of an order being returned to us due to non delivery, we reserve the right to make a further charge to cover additional delivery charges.

How are CPO complying with the new 2018 GDPR laws?

We have rewritten our Privacy Policy to encompass the new 2018 GDPR laws.

To read our full policy click here.

Where are the banner sizes and materials on the web?

You can look at banner sizes here.


Why don’t you produce more DIY?

We have found that it isn’t cost effective, as the demand is limited.


Can I add a logo on a poster?

Yes - using our new online customisation tool you can now add your own images and logos. See here for more information.

Why does it cost more if I place order and logo by email than on web?

When you order on the web, you are placing the order yourself so the cost is discounted.  When you order by email, our design team interact with the order and process it and so the cost is more.

Can you remove me from the mailing list?

Yes, email in to enquiries@cpo.org.uk and ask to not be contacted via post or email. Or, if you only wouldn’t like to get emails from CPO go to ‘my account’ and then to the ‘contact preferences’ tab and tick the box that says ‘If you would prefer not to receive this please tick here’.

Why can’t I place an overprint order over the phone?

We want to make sure we get your order right. There is a risk of mistakes if we take wording over the telephone.

Can I pay by invoice on the web?

We do ask that you pay upfront with a card on the web (we do not accept American Express).
