Secure printing and mailing of progression documents in the regulated parking and traffic management environment such as Notice to Owner, Charge Certificate, Bus Lane PCN’s including photographic evidence

We’ll design all your document needs, set up secure file transfers for all your variable data and digitally print and personalise the complete pack and either mail it, or send it back to you in bulk.

Parking Permits, Scratch Card and Event Passes Printing and Mailing 

We have significant experience in the printing and mailing of permits, parking scratch cards and event passes.

Parking Permits and Season Tickets

Using a high security base stock, with or without an integrated holder, we digitally print car parking permits and season tickets in full colour, then mail them direct to the addressee. We use your variable data to fully personalise the documents so they are highly secure and difficult to use fraudulently. In addition to reducing processing costs our approach adds value in service delivery and reduces the risk of fraudulent use.

Scratch Cards

Scratch cards are in widespread use for managing resident visitor parking schemes and ad hoc visitor or cashless parking schemes. However getting them into the hands of users can often involve complex internal distribution or inconvenience to your users.
We can reduce costs and improve service delivery by holding your scratch card stock then digitally personalising them on demand, from your data, and mailing them direct to the customer, in books or as single cards.

Event Passes

Managing the printing and distribution of event passes for vehicles, people and contractors is time critical work requiring secure processes and often complex finished packs. With extensive experience in managing secure printing and mailing we have significant knowledge and resource to handle even the most complex requirements.
Scanning and Archiving 
Filing cabinets and cupboards across the country contain files and documents for future reference. Whether you are a local authority or an SME, whether you need is a statutory obligation or a commercial necessity, these documents often take up valuable office space but are only referred to periodically.

Talk to us today about our scanning and archiving services. We’ll create a digital image of your documents in an agreed format and then make this available to you in multiple ways to suit your business need. Examples include periodic update by DVD, upload to a secure hosted server and upload to your secure server.
