Tips :

- PDF files are the preferred format ! I cannot stress this enough, as text formatting, fonts & colours are faithfully reproduced. Word/Powerpoint/Publisher files are not suitable although we will print them, no responsibility will be accepted & formatting changes will not be corrected.  :-)

- Thesis Printing - save your final file as a PDF (see above :-)  ,

Word files are unsuitable for final printing as formatting can change.

- Insert blank pages in your document where you want the back side of your double sided page to blank. eg Cover page is page 1, blank page is page 2 - so that when you duplex page 2 is on the back of page 1, making your document look professional. Continue this through your document, the even number page is your ''back'' page. And remember we can print your selected colour pages ( see above).


* USB FILES: Please place files you need printing in a folder labelled "CLC PRINT".
