University of Bristol print supplier

With a former chancellor none other than Sir Winston Churchill and a history that can be traced back to 1595, the University of Bristol has a long and illustrious past. Now a member of the Russell Group of research-led British universities, it is renowned for its medical and engineering subjects and offers over 200 undergraduate courses. Belmont Press have worked with the University of Bristol for over a decade and were delighted to retain the contract this year for the organisations printed prospectus.

The University of Bristol has won numerous awards for its sustainability actions, aiding the city to become the UK's first with certified European Green status in 2015.


With this in mind, the paper used to produce the prospectus had to be a good fit with the university’s sustainability values. Belmont Press therefore sourced paper from suppliers that support the World Land Trust’s environmental initiatives around the UK.

The carbon was offset for the paper used in the production of the prospectus, which qualified the publication to display the World Land Trust logo. Belmont Press also further contributed to the sustainability of the project by printing cardboard environmentally friendly wraps to mail out the prospectus. The wrap replaced the previous single use plastic poly bags as a greener alternative. The card used for the wrap was also FSC certified and 100% recyclable.

The end result

The partnership of the University of Bristol and Belmont Press has resulted in the sustainable production of a striking 80 page Undergraduate Prospectus, finished in the handy size of 210 x 210mm.

It is held within our 12,880 cubic meter, temperature controlled warehouse and fulfilled by our own dedicated staff. Tomorrow’s students receive a unique, quality publication that is carefully produced, keeping a greener, more sustainable future in mind.
