Our mission is to provide you with the highest-quality products and services possible in a timely fashion and at a competitive price, keeping in line with the Rockford University brand standards guide.  We promise to listen and help you achieve your printing goals. We will always be there with honest, expert advice and quick, friendly customer service.

Print Services General Policy and Procedure

Rockford University Print Services is a cost recovery auxiliary that maintains an in-house graphic reproduction system dedicated to providing efficient, high quality, cost effective services for the campus community. Printing and related production services include all University printing, photocopying, graphic design, assembly and binding. Printing includes everything from the simplest short duplication to more complex printing requirements.  Producing projects in-house helps ensure university brand standards are met; all jobs comply with copyright laws; and campus printing and copy facilities are utilized at the optimum capacity. As a dedicated high quality service center, Print Services helps ensure that printing decisions are made in the best interests of the University, contributing to the overall financial health of the University. Print Services works to ensure that what is printed is of the highest quality possible, reflecting Rockford University’s initiative to uphold its identity and enhance its reputation in the community.

Procedure

All university print jobs must be submitted through the Rockford University portal to Print Services, to produce the job in house according to the department specifications. If Print Services lacks either the equipment to produce the work or the ability to meet the deadline, Print Services will coordinate with Marketing and Graphic Design as well as the requesting department to procure an outside commercial printer from the University’s preferred vendor list. Departments may not contact commercial printers for quotes or estimates before the job has been reviewed by Marketing and/or Print Services, as Print Services has the first right of refusal to determine if the job can be produced in house. Departmental expenditures, including credit card purchases will be routinely audited and monitored to ensure compliance with this policy.  Employees in travel status may use credit cards to purchase University business-related photocopying and duplicating services, but no design changes to any University documents are permitted.

Print Services staff works collaboratively with Marketing and Communications to review and apply brand standards to print and copy materials. University personnel are required to contact Marketing and Graphic Design before preparing copy or creating electronic files for publications which are targeted to an external audience or used for the purpose of recruitment. Any request that reaches Print Services and that may not have gone through this process will be funneled through Marketing for proofing and editing.

Any request for an exception to this policy must be submitted, including justification, to the Vice President for Advancement.
