Special Note
The graphic design services are available only to departments reporting within the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management.  Projects must meet specific audience and marketing criteria to be accepted.  Please call the Design & Publications Manager at 753-3040 with any questions or for clarification.
A typical graphic design request to print timeline can be anywhere from 4-6 weeks.  A more specific timeline will be agreed upon at the project meeting.  Old versions of print pieces or similar publications may be helpful in conveying your ideas.  Project managers are encouraged to bring their ideas to the project meeting, with the understanding that the new project will be original.
