The Office of Communications provides resources and tools to help you share your chapter of Puget Sound's story. We look forward to working with you!
If you have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 253.879.3298.
Communications Request Form
To initiate a project with the Office of Communications, please submit a communications request form. Please submit a request only after you have collected all of the assets (text, images, etc.) required for the project. The request form is received by Communications project managers, who will review the project and create a schedule.
When a project is ready to move forward, and all materials have been received, the Office of Communications will develop a production schedule that allows time for development, proofreading, design, revision, and printing.
The general guidelines listed below indicate the time between receiving your request (including all the materials/content that we need to get started) and delivering the final files to your department.
3 weeks: Signs, fliers, certificates, posters, postcards
4 weeks: Info sheets, stickers, buttons, brochures, programs
5 weeks: Banners, cards, invitations
8 weeks: Large projects (magazines, welcome packets, campaigns, etc.)
For campus print jobs, print-ready files and specifications will be provided for you to submit to Print and Copy Services. 11" x 17" color posters cost $1 each (no bleed) or $1.25 each (full bleed) to print. Note: If your print file has crop marks in the corners, it should be submitted as "full bleed." This means that the edges will be trimmed so that the color goes to the paper's edge.
If an outside print job is needed (e.g., large bound books, stickers, and mailers), the Office of Communications bids projects to appropriate vendors and can help facilitate the process.
Looking for business cards or letterhead? You can order directly from Print and Copy Services by contacting email@example.com or 253.879.3446.
Distribution and Mailing
Campus Poster Distribution: To distribute posters on campus, in designated poster display areas in academic and campus buildings, deliver 40 posters to ASUPS (Wheelock Student Center, Room 210) and include the ASUPS poster form. To distribute to residence halls and houses, deliver 50 posters to the Office of Residence Life.
Off-Campus Poster Distribution: We recommend the distribution service Inform Puget Sound; contact 253.272.4893 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pickup of your posters. 11" x 17" posters cost a little more than $1 each to distribute to area coffee houses, bookstores, libraries, etc. Posters take about a week to be distributed and should be ready for pickup at least three weeks before your event.
Digital Distribution: If you would like to post a graphic on the ASUPS-controlled monitor in Wheelock, please follow the ASUPS distribution instructions.
Mailing: If materials are mailed from campus, you are responsible for coordinating mailing lists, postage, and mailing. If you would like a recommendation for an off-campus mail house, please contact email@example.com.
