Printing Information • Proper Procedure guidelines- how to handle your printing needs to best market your area • Suggested local Printing Vendors when the Campus Contract Printer is not involved
Information and Steps • Wallace Printers has won the bid again for our on campus contract printer- they get “first right of refusal” or “first chance” at a project • Fill out the information form that I will send you by email • After completion, submit your request with the information you provide to Wallace Printing first • Once Wallace’s quote is obtained, please review it • If you are happy with it, just simply complete Wallace’s own printing form. If the amount is over the $5000 bid limit, since Wallace is our contract printer, a bid will not be necessary if you choose Wallace. • Continued next page
Printing Procedures continued • If you are not happy with Wallace’s quote, you may obtain quotes on your own or I may obtain them for you. • If the quotes are above $5000, the item will need to go out for bid, and Wallace will still be included in the bid • Once a printer has been chosen, simply complete the requisition in Banner as usual and I will complete the purchase order. • Remember: Printed materials are advertising as well as informational tools! So let’s put our best face forward for this wonderful University of ours!
