To Begin a Job (Faculty/Staff Only)
The most critical aspects toward ensuring the success of your project are clear communication about your exact needs and allowing ample lead time. Of course, there will be "emergency" jobs, and we make every effort to accommodate those projects.
We can provide a cost estimate so you can budget for the expense. Note that most projects that come directly to the print shop do not require design services.
If your project needs to be designed, please contact Ryan Barnes, Director of Creative Services, as your point of entry for a new project consultation.
Giving us your project - You can either hand deliver your project to us, campus mail it, or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When sending us your project, please make sure that a Print Services Job Ticket is completed, and attached. There are fields for every detail of your project. Your complete and accurate job ticket ensures that we can correctly process your project. We can receive projects in the following ways: hard copy, PDF document, JPG files, TIF files.
Turn Around Time - For basic printing needs (including posters, business cards and note pads), please allow three days. For booklets and manuals please allow five days. Note - these turnaround times reflect printing only and not design.
Inventoried Items - The inventory includes a wide variety of paper products and specialty items. To purchase any of these items, send an e-mail to email@example.com. Your order will be filled and sent to you via campus mail or you may pick it up at the Boyer House.
It's important to know that...
Equipment failure/break-down can prevent us from completing your work accurately and on time. It's another reason why as much lead time as possible is a best-practice toward success. Frequent and late changes also can delay the production schedule and can lead to errors in the final product. Jobs requiring reprinting or reassembly because of changes or client errors will be the financial responsibility of the requesting department. Some printing options are limited to certain software formats; check in advance to avoid the need to recreate your document.
