 How can I personalise my publicity with my own details?

CPO offers several different options to personalise your publicity:

  • CPO's professional printing service, where you select the design, provide us with the text, and we typeset and overprint your copy for you. click here for overprint terms and conditions.
  • Online overprint offers you the flexibility to choose one of our ranges and for you to personalise your publicity via our web-shop.
  • The DIY option enables you to use our pre-printed invitations (i.e. 2ups, 4ups and A5 paper folders available in certain ranges only) and you can overprint using your own printer or copier. The DIY option is a popular choice, useful for when you have relatively small print runs and that can be done quickly.
  • CPO's bespoke service, where we can design and print according to your own specification, or you can supply your own artwork. Please contact us for further details.

 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 ( /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 despatched 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. Smaller parcels are sent by Royal Mail 2nd class whilst larger parcels are sent by carrier and require a signature.
