Effective, well-written, and attractive publications require adequate time for thoughtful development - writing, editing, design, layout, review, and, printing. Schedules vary, depending on the length and scope of the project and how much support you need from our team. Starting a publication from scratch, for example, takes longer than revising an existing one. Please allow at least two-six weeks for a project to be completed from start to finish. This includes planning time for printing and/or mailing. All departments need an optimal amount of time to complete projects that enhance the university's image. We will be able to provide an estimated delivery date, but substantial copy and layout changes made after production begins can add considerably to the time needed for the project to be completed.
