Graphic Design and Printing
Think of the products you buy or the stores where you shop. Have you ever hesitated on a purchase because of the way it looked? What would you think if someone attended a gala in sweatpants and a t-shirt? It may not seem obvious but good design adds credibility. You get one chance to make an impression and in a culture where we are constantly bombarded with messages, it’s important that you get the attention and response you want in order to stay ahead of the competition.

Procurement Services requires this approval from University Communications in order to process payment for all printed materials, advertising or promotional items representing the university.

How long will it take?
Each job is unique, and much of this depends on you. Depending on the complexity of the print job, we ask you to anticipate on average a minimum of 5 weeks from start to completion. Printing alone takes 7-14 days. More complex jobs and larger quantities will take more time. Please meet with us as soon as possible to provide plenty time for quality printing and design and ensure that your targeted deadline will be met
