Project Requests

Submit a Project Request Form to start your project. After you submit the form, our manager will contact you to schedule a creative meeting or to gather additional information about your project, if no meeting is necessary.

The next step is to send copy for your project to our manager for review before any design work is started. All copy should be submitted as a Word document and must be reviewed before the design phase begins.

For quality control purposes, University Communications maintains control of native design files.


Reprints

If you would like an exact reprint of a job previously printed by our office, fill out the Reprint Request Form.

*Please note that if you would like updates made to a project already created by our office, you may request those updates using the Project Request Form.


Print-Ready Projects

Print Procurement

Contact University Communications for all of your university printing needs. We provide competitive pricing and quality printing by utilizing services from a group of qualified print vendors. Requesting quotes from vendors is part of our process; therefore, once the specifications and quantities for your project are confirmed, the project will be sent out on bid, and you will receive quotes in approximately three (3) business days.

Approval of Printing, Advertising and Promotional Items

Communications materials representing the university should be approved through University Communications and will be reviewed according to the guidelines presented in both the Graphic Standards and Style Guide.

Approval from University Communications is required by Procurement Services in order to process payment for any printed materials, advertising or promotional items being paid for with university funds. If your communications materials require approval, email us at universitycommunications@usm.edu.
