Clearcast Out-Of-Hours

28th July 2020

We’re thrilled to introduce our new ‘Clearcast Out-Of-Hours’ service. The service simply means that agencies and advertisers can now get access to our clearance and development services at any time of the day, any day of the week.

The only condition is that you need to let Seb Lynch (our Copy Development Manager) know by 3 pm on the day or the Friday if the work is over the weekend. The service is available from 6 pm on weekdays and all weekend. You won’t be able to contact Seb or anyone at Clearcast outside of working hours unless the work has been prearranged by 3 pm and that way staff will be on standby.

We asked Seb to explain in his own words what the service entails – you can watch the video here.

No doubt there are many reasons a service like this would be handy, so if you have any questions or would like a quote then please contact Seb Lynch here or give him a call on 02073394771.

If you need speedy feedback (within 24 hours) on your submission during working hours, then our Fast Track service is available – you can read more about it here.
