Print Release

University Policy

The University enforces a policy that requires prior approval (a "Print Release") for all marketing-related printing or production projects costing $50 or more. Five business days BEFORE the project is printed, please submit a print release request so we can review your project for brand compliance.

To review the University's brand guidelines, please visit www.unr.edu/logos.

Please fill out the form on this page and the Office of Marketing and Communications will review your request within two business days.
