Design Production Request Form
To manage the high volume of requests for publications, the Office of Marketing and Communications maintains a production schedule by which all requests for printed materials are prioritized and processed. When a design request is submitted, all materials (text, photos, images, etc.) must accompany the request. Otherwise, the project will be on hold until all materials are submitted via e-mail.
Please do not include Google images, Facebook downloads, unauthorized imagery or clip art. These are unacceptable because of copyright and general best practices for university design/materials.
When planning a project that requires design and print materials, please remember that a minimum of eight weeks is required to produce a meaningful printed piece. ASAP is not an acceptable due date.
Why? It’s a process.
Delivering you the very best project often includes scheduling, copy editing, design/layout, up to three rounds of proofs, print bidding, and printing. Projects may take less or more time depending on the current marketing project queue.
To get a project started, please fill out this form as completely as possible. Please remember to submit a separate form per each project type. For example, if you need 500 fliers and 100 posters, you would need to place two requests—one for the fliers and the other for the posters.
Thank you and we look forward to working with you!
