On-campus printing and graphic design services
Printing and design services are available to departments and official members of the SUNY Fredonia community. The Office of Publication Services (2121 Fenton Hall) is ready to assist with every stage of producing your materials, including design, estimating, production management, copy editing, proofreading and printing counsel and assistance. Our campus print shop can produce one- or two-color printed materials, while our office can print four-color digital materials in small quantities, such as campus flyers or posters, up to 12”x 18.”
We strongly encourage you to begin every project by consulting our office during its initial stages, and request a quote for your job. Although our design and production services are offered free of charge, there are costs associated with the actual printing of the job. We accept many forms of digital files and camera-ready copy. When submitting your digital design, we also request a hard copy, as well as a PDF for digital services.
How to submit a request
For assistance, just fill out a Publication Services Request form, including the appropriate signatures and charge codes. This form can either be picked up in our office or downloaded at www.fredonia.edu/publications. Simply complete it, attach your materials, and return it to our office. If any design work is requested, an electronic plain text file is needed for all written copy. We cannot accept copy that is not provided in this manner.
After we receive everything we need for your project and have an initial meeting with you if needed, your project will begin. An e-mail with an attached pdf may be sent to you for review or you may receive a hard copy/mock-up. Depending on the scope of project, the production time needed to complete your project will be determined by its priority level and complexity, as well as the current workload of the print shop. Therefore, please make any request at least six weeks in advance of the date on which you need the finished piece to ensure that we can meet your delivery needs.
Our office can review your request and discuss a reasonable timeframe.
Using official SUNY Fredonia logos
To request an official electronic SUNY Fredonia logo, e‑mail email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate which version is needed (i.e., vector or jpeg; black & white logo with grey seal, or blue logo with grey seal) and its intended use, so that we can supply you with the right format.
All reproduction and outside use of the SUNY Fredonia logo, as well as the Blue Devils athletics logo, is controlled by the terms of our Licensing Program. To ensure that you are in compliance, please direct all vendors to Katie Thies, Trademarks and Licensing coordinator, at (716) 673-3417, ext. 6273, or email@example.com.

If you need photos, please contact our campus photographer, Roger Coda, to arrange a session. Also, please visit our searchable online photo gallery at: http://prphotos.fredonia.edu to view existing campus photography which you may access with no added permissions and at no cost.
For complex projects, both the customer and our office share responsibility for proofreading. Fact checking is always the responsibility of you, the customer. Proofs are exchanged after every major alteration. Prior to printing, a final proof will be provided and your project must be approved before printing. The job will not be printed without VP or departmental chair/director approval. Once a design is finalized and approved, your job will go to press. Completed print jobs are delivered directly to the customer at the address indicated on the request form.
Simple reprints (no changes) or reworks of jobs with minor changes may be sent to us along with a completed Publication Services Request form. No meetings are necessary. Under normal circumstances, simple jobs are completed within a couple of weeks.
