Does DWP pay for the printing service ?

Hi, not sure where to post this quesitons as it could be eaely under several forums. DWP has asked me to send some additional information. For some silly reasoon thay do not do emails so I need to send by post. I neededd to go to town to the local library and print documents (i took a taxi) and paid the printing there. Yes the envelope is provided but how do they expect me to get printed documents they are asking for. Should I enclose the printing and taxi receipts and would DWPpay for these. Thank you

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    The cost of providing these will be down to yourself you won't be able to claim from dwp

    thank you janer, 
    why is it not possible to send electronically? by email for example... 
    with paper copies there is more effort (time) on both sides, as well as the risk (postal strikes, being lost etc)
