Tips for a successful project:

The first step in submitting work to be designed, photocopied and/or printed is to find out if your program or department is categorical or non-categorical.

  • If your program or department is funded by a grant or other outside funding, then you will need a categorical account number. When you register to submit work online, please email or call the coordinator, Campus Graphics, at ext. 3447 and inform him of the budget codes to which you will need access.
  • If your program or department is funded by district general funds, you will use the non-categorical account number 30000000.

All non-classroom documents must be reviewed and approved by the Director, Public Affairs, before submitting the project for photocopying.

No copyrighted material submitted will be photocopied without proof of permission of the copyright holder.

Photocopy Order Form vs Design/Print Order Form

Use the Photocopy Order Form:

  • If you are requesting less than 1,000 total copies. This service is limited to the photocopying of originals that do not require design services.
  • You can either submit your originals electronically through the Printshop Pro software or you can submit hard copies of your originals attached to a printout of the work order from Printshop Pro’s Job History site.
  • All copy information should be proofread and corrected before it reaches the Campus Graphics office. Repeated changes will delay printing.
  • A proof with an attached Campus Graphics Proof Approval tag will be sent to you prior to printing. It is your responsibility to proof this final layout and return the proof per the instructions on the Campus Graphics Proof Approval tag.

Use the Design/Print Order Form:

  • For any work that does not have attached paper originals for photocopy or printing.
  • In addition, any job that requires design work and any printing of stationery (business cards, letterhead, envelopes) or NCR forms must be submitted with a Design/Print Order Form.
  • All forms are available online at the Campus Graphics Printshop Pro link; select Submit Order Online at the top of this page.
