Delivery and collection

Pick up

All our prices include collection from your local shop.

Or we can deliver

We can also deliver directly to your premises, or anywhere you like. We use reputable overnight carriers who publish an on-time success rate of 90%.

If you order 2 or more items, we may despatch each as soon as it’s ready. Don’t worry though, we’ll only charge you for delivery once. We charge delivery based on the total weight of your order, so the more you order, the cheaper each item gets. We’ll show you the delivery price of any item before you purchase it.

In the unlikely event that we fail to despatch on time, read about Our guaranteed fast turnaround.

If you’d like your order delivered to more than one address, or further afield than NZ, please contact us for a quote.

We will insure to use the best courier in order to get your goods delivered in a timely manner at the best rate. We will not markup the cost of freight, but will charge for time and labour in relation to couriering or posting your printed work.

Freight will be encluded in your quoted before your job is printed.
Extra fees will be charged for overnight courier if required by the customer.

Couriering can take 2-3 working days for delivery after your product is printed and paid.

Get them quicker

You’ve got the power to make us work even more quickly. With our new flexible turnaround options, you can choose your turnaround time. Our low prices mean we have to work ultra efficiently, so speeding up your order means we rack up lots of extra costs. To help contribute to these costs, we add a small premium to the normal print price – it’s only fair. For instance, a print item with normal turnaround of 3 working day is also available in 1 working days with our V.I.P Service – the less urgent your order is, the lower your price is.

Same day despatch service

Our services rely on the customer not delaying the progress of the order in any way (which delays include but are not limited to the customer not returning proofs by the time specified by Oamaru Print or failing to make payment by the time such payment is due) (a "Customer Delay"). In the event of a Customer Delay or courier delay out of Oamaru Print controll - the customer shall not be awarded a Credit and the customer shall still be obliged to pay the VIP Charges but Oamaru Print shall not be bound to deliver within the orginal Guaranteed Period.
