Online Postal Printing

As an alternative to the usual public printing service at our libraries, SurfBox have developed a new online postal printing service. This is a fully remote printing service, allowing users to send documents from home and receive their prints by post. Printing is charged at the same rate as users would pay in the library and postage is charged at An Post standard postal rates. Once orders are received before 3pm, users will receive their prints by next business day’s post.

To access this service, go to the SurfBox website and follow the instructions for Online Postal Printing. All information submitted for postal printing will be processed in compliance with GDPR regulations and SurfBox’s data protection policy.

This service is provided by SurfBox and is not managed by dlr Libraries.
