Design Services

Creative Services can assist with the creation of your design. To begin the process please complete the Design Request Form.

While we no longer facilitate the ordering and printing of promotional items including swag, banners, signage, and vinyl graphics of any type, once your design is approved you may contact and work directly with a vendor of your choice. You will need to be sure to follow the Purchasing Compliance Guidelines and approval processes. Payments should be made via purchase order or pcard.

Please contact Purchasing for detailed vendor lists for your printing projects.

All projects follow a timeline according to university priority status and current workload of team members.

 

Printing Services

Creative Services (formerly Campus Printing and Design Services) no longer offers in-house printing services. The university is contracted with a local printing vendor and Creative Services can help facilitate certain print needs. We do encourage the promotion of your design in a digital format vs. printing.

 

Typical contracted printing:

Copies – must be provided in digital format (pdf). If a digital format is not available, you will be responsible for scanning the document into pdf format if needed. Hard copies will not be accepted.

Letterhead

Business Cards

Small batches of envelopes

Brochures

Rack cards

Postcards

Handbills

Flyers – up to 12″ x 18″

Certificates

Programs

If printing is necessary but outside of the contracted specifications (which Creative Services can advise on), alternate vendors may be utilized. Your printing request will be reviewed by a member of the CS team. If it is consistent with the contracted specs CS will forward your job to our vendor. If your job is outside of the agreed vendor specs, you will need to contact Purchasing and work with them for a list of additional vendors.

To begin the printing process, please complete the Print/Duplicating Request Form. (Requests are processed M-F. Jobs submitted after 3 p.m. will be processed the next business day.)

1.     CS will review your print request and grant approval for the contracted vendor or recommend the use of an alternate vendor*.

2.     If approved for the contracted vendor, CS will forward the job – please allow up to one week for printing.

3.     Your print job will be delivered (or you may make arrangements for pickup).

*If an alternate vendor is recommended, you will need to contact Purchasing for a recommended vendor list. Generally, alternate vendors take one-two weeks to print. Please allow for this in your timeline.

 

Typical jobs outside of contracted specifications:

Posters larger than 12″ x 18″ – unmounted or mounted on foam core

Larger quantities outside of contracted specifications

More complex projects

Folders

Stickers

 

Special Notes:

It is the responsibility of the individual/department ordering to comply with budgetary requirements.

All projects follow a timeline according to university priority status and current workload of staff members.
