Why go through Budget and Finance for off-campus printing?
It is legally mandated (by Article IV, Section 25 of the Wis. Constitution and Chapter 35.01 of the Wis. Stats.) all off-campus printing using state funding be placed by UW-L's University Print Manager.*
The University Print Manager serves as the liaison between UW-La Crosse and the Wisconsin Department of Administration's printing section to monitor compliance with state contracts and regulations.
*Individual departments may not place an order directly with an off-campus commercial printer other than Digicopy. It is also prohibited to purchase printing using a procurement card.
Once you have signed off on the proof for your publication, coordination of off-campus printing will be done by the University Print Manager located in the Business Services Office, or directly by the client if using Digicopy.
Using Business Services Office:
Ordering print through the University Print Manager, you will need to:
supply a PDF
as a high resolution
with crop marks
CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)
embed fonts and images
send via email to University Print Manager or save to a flash drive and drop off at 118 Graff Main Hall
supply a hard copy of finished pieces
All jobs sent off-campus for printing will also include a blackline or color proofs. Clients are required to proof and sign printer's proof. Copy or design changes at this stage are expensive and may delay delivery.
