Marketing Communications

Marketing Communications

Our Purpose

To create professional communications that consistently communicate the university's values, messages and graphic identity through targeted print and multimedia content.

Our Services

We provide high-quality marketing, editing and design services at no charge to your office or department, so you pay only for printing services – providing you a significant savings over commercial marketing services. There is a great deal of demand for our assistance year- round, so plan your publication with us as early as possible, to help us better serve you.

When possible, we use Ferris’ Copy Center and Media Production printing services. However, please be advised that some print projects require large quantities or certain printing services and must be printed by off-campus, commercial printers.

We manage the bidding and pre-press processes for your commercial printing at no charge, soliciting bids from commercial print vendors in compliance with Purchasing Policy. We then provide pre-press services to place your order. The print vendor will bill your department directly, and you may pay by purchasing card or purchase order. If you pay by purchasing order, please be aware that we must have your purchase order number before we can send the job to print.

The bidding and ordering process for commercial printing takes approximately 30 days, and we cannot begin it until you have provided final approval of content and design. Contact us for more details that will help you determine whether your publication will require commercial printing services.

Planning to create your own publication? Please follow our handy guidelines for Visual Identity and Brand Standards and Written Communication Standards.
