Policies and Procedures
Located in Faculty Hall, Suite 126
General Policies and ProceduresPrinting Services provides in-house printing and reprographic services to the University community.
In order to ensure the best pricing for the University and to maintain quality, all printing and reprographics for the University must be routed through Printing Services. In the event that Printing Services cannot reproduce the material needed, we will be the liaison between the University community and outside vendors. We will use our relationships built over many years to secure the best quality and pricing for your work.
Printing Services will work with the campus community to ensure all materials meet University Branding and Quality Standards. In the event a document is received by Printing services that does not meet those standards, we will collaborate with Marketing and Communications to produce the material. Electronic digital masters are preferred.
While Printing Services strives to proofread and edit all materials for accuracy, the client is ultimately responsible for the content of materials submitted for duplication. The Printing Services staff are not content specialists, and will not change any content of the material submitted to be duplicated without consulting with the client.
Printing Services cannot duplicate any copyrighted materials without proper written permission from the copyright holder. To obtain this authorization, contact the copyright holder with an explanation of the purpose and intent for the reproduction. As a rule normally, for learning/research purposes copyright holders allow materials to be copied. Please have the appropriate paperwork before submitting to Printing Services with the printing request. See the University System of Georgia web page for more information regarding copyright and fair use. http://www.usg.edu/copyright/

Production Quotes Quotes are given on request. Project quotes may be requested and are encouraged for departmental budgeting. In the event an external written quote is obtained, at a lower cost, Printing Services has right of first refusal. If Printing Services cannot match or reduce quote then approval will be granted for outsourcing.
Monthly Billing Every completed work request is delivered with a pink copy of the original work request and pricing. Invoicing for monthly reprographic and printing services is handled via Business Services and journal entries. Each department is sent their own detailed invoice for the transactions of the month.
Outsourcing Vendors In order to make sure that outsourced projects meet University branding and quality control standards, all reproduction materials in the form of printing or reprographics must go through the Marketing & Communications Department.
