Print on Demand


The Alpha Shop is managed with a print on demand model for a number of our printed publications and materials so they're only produced when they're needed.

Products such as our non-English language booklets, invitations, posters, and banners are all printed once your order is placed.

Printing digitally enables us to print in small quantities both quickly and cost-effectively, resulting in less paper being wasted and storage costs being kept to a minimum. It also means we're printing the very latest edition of the publication and our invitations can be customised to support your Alpha.

This does sometimes mean the fulfilment of orders with on-demand items can take an extra day than those without on-demand items, however all orders are printed and dispatched within 2 working days and delivered within 5 days thereafter (normally sooner).
