A print release is required for all University printing projects using external vendors and costing more than $50. Prior approval must be obtained from Integrated Marketing in the Office of the President. All print and copy jobs must meet the University's Graphic Standards to obtain a print release. Projects printed without prior approval will be subject to approval by the Office of the President. Projects completed by the University Copy Center do not need a print release but must follow the University Graphic Standards. Should the Copy Center outsource a job to an external vendor, a print release is required.
Instructional materials, such as tests, syllabi, articles and reports, are exempt from University Graphic Standards and do not require a print release.
Scholarly works, such as a dissertation or thesis, are exempt from University Graphic Standards and do not require a print release.
Items related to the business system (letterhead, envelopes, business cards, etc) must be printed by University contracted vendors, visit the stationery page for online ordering information. No print release is needed when using the contacted vendors. Print release form numbers must be obtained prior to printing. To obtain a print release number, please fill out the print release form.
Exceptions will require President's Office approval.
Please send a fax or a pdf of the project with the print release form. Your project will be reviewed for logo usage and adherence to University graphic standards. As part of the University materials archive project, please send two samples of the printed piece (if you don't have extras, please send a photocopy of the piece).
