Publications—Process and Guidelines for Print Projects

Please note that due to the large volume of projects produced by our office each year, we recommend project requests are made with a specific due date. For planning purposes, most projects take between six and eight weeks from when text/information is received to final delivery.

  1. Official Request—Submit an official request to Jasmine Bucher ( to begin the planning and publication process. A designer will contact you to schedule a brief concept meeting (if needed), provide a project timeline with deadlines, and set up a Basecamp folder (Basecamp is a cloud-based project management system that will be explained to all new users). 
  2. Production Schedule—The normal 6–8 week schedule for completion of the project (design, production, and printing) will begin after a concept meeting (if needed) is held. To help ensure a timely delivery of your project, please provide final text in a Word document. 
  3. Process—As determined by the complexity of the project, the client will receive at least two proofs during the process. To help ensure a timely delivery of your project, we recommend that the first proof is shared and approved by all appropriate co-workers and supervisors, including the appropriate vice president if applicable. 

Please contact the department of Marketing & Communications (717-867-6030) if you have any questions.
