Print.  Copy.

The world of print continues to evolve. Diocesan Print Unit have invested in a range of digital devices that produce quality print, optimise paper usage and improve productivity. As a result, we maintain value for money and an efficient competitive service.

We aim to reduce environmental impact, reducing our waste and recycling where possible. Our paper stocks are from sustainable sources.

Booklet making is our speciality. Our core product range includes brochures, order of services,  parish & village magazines, newsletters, programmes and reports plus menus, leaflets, flyers, invitations and stationery.

So, if you’re looking for quality short run digital print, up to SRA3 size, we have the equipment and skills to produce it.


Good design needn’t be complicated or expensive. At the Diocesan Print Unit, we provide customers with a cost effective, simple solution to their design needs. Coupled with our digital print and finishing service, we have the power to get your message across effectively.


We provide various finishing services including comb binding, wire binding, laminating, folding, booklet production, stapling, hole punching and bulk guillotining.
