Wiltshire-based UTAX (UK) Ltd, one of Europe’s largest Document Management companies specialising in the sale of printing and copier systems, has recently launched The UTAX Community Print Project. The new initiative provides free printing services on an “As Agreed” basis to pre-approved community events and charitable activities across the UK.
It means that charities and local not-for-profit organisations including Parish, Village and Town event organisers, with little or no access to printing facilities, can now apply to have their event publicity material or public information notices printed.
Head of marketing at UTAX (UK), Sarah Mackay, said: “As you might expect, we have a large technology suite here at our Head Office with the complete range of our latest printing equipment. It makes perfect sense for us to utilise our advanced printers, when not in use, to help community groups and projects from near and far with their printing requirements. In these increasingly demanding economic times, companies need to be imaginative in how they can support their local communities.”
From colourful A5 programmes, booklets and A4 flyers to black and white A3 posters, UTAX claim to offer a “wide variety” of printing options to accommodate most requirements.
The company has recently helped several organisations with their projects including Oxfordshire charity, SpecialEffect’s, “Twin Town Challenge.” The charity’s fundraiser, Nick Streeter, said: “We would like to say a huge thanks to UTAX for their support of the charity via the Twin Town Challenge and are so grateful for their continued support. Their expertise and support not only saves us vital funds that we can use to help more people with disabilities it also adds to the overall impression of this amazing event.”
Interested community groups need to complete an application form that can be found on the UTAX website.
