Design and Typeset
TYPESETTING AND DESIGN
- The print shop can do typesetting and design for projects that will be printed, such
as, brochures, flyers, post cards, signs, advertisements, etc. Requests for typesetting
and design work that will be printed off campus will be reviewed on a case -by-case
basis. Most commercial printers prefer to do their own
typesetting and layout to ensure the materials will print properly on their equipment. Any projects for television or special presentations (i.e., PowerPoint slide shows) should be directed to Media Services.
- When submitting a request to the print shop for typesetting and design you must provide the necessary text for the project. It is not the typesetter’s responsibility to research and find appropriate verbiage. The typesetter will, however, look for appropriate images. If you have specific images or logos you want included in the project, you will need to provide them to the typesetter.
- When the typesetter has finished setting up the project, she will send you a proof that should be reviewed carefully, signed, and returned to her in the Proof envelope. Once received back in the print shop, the project will then be forwarded to the appropriate area (i.e., Quick Copy, Color Copy or Press Room). Any changes or corrections after the project has been completed will require another proof and print request ticket.
- If you are going to do your own design work, please refer to these pages for important information regarding printing your materials. Remember to edit and review your project carefully before sending to the print shop. If the print shop has to make corrections to layout in order to print properly, a delay in processing your request may occur.
- Keep in mind that images on the internet are at 72 DPI, which is a very low resolution. If you get images from the internet and enlarge them they will print poorly. Also, make sure that the images are not copyrighted. If in doubt, don’t use.
- When resizing an image, remember to do so proportionality. Images that have been stretched look bad and don’t reflect a positive image on the College.
- All marketing materials should be approved by the Marketing and Public Relations Office prior to printing.
- All materials set up by the typesetter are done using Creative Suites programs such as InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. These are graphic programs that allow the typesetter to create documents that can be printed on the copiers or presses. These programs do not have the capability to allow the typesetter to convert the Creative Suite files into Microsoft Office files. If you request to have the files sent electronically, you will receive a pdf file, as we cannot convert our files into Word, Publisher, Excel, or PowerPoint.
- e-Print is available to all staff and faculty.
- e-Print procedures are implemented to provide better customer support.
- e-Print is for black and white printing and publishing only.
- Do not send color copy requests by e-Print. You can email a color copy request to the typesetter or send hardcopy to the Print Shop either by hand or via Campus Mail.
- Do not send files containing more than 80 pages by e-Print. Send a hardcopy to the Print Shop either by hand or via Campus Mail.
- The purpose of e-Print is to save time sending orders to the Print Shop. It does not change the time a print job takes to process. Please plan your projects appropriately.
- All orders are processed in the order in which they are received.
- The Print Shop will not maintain files. Once an e-Print request has been processed the electronic file will be deleted.
- The Print Shop is not responsible for changing/correcting files received. Proof your work carefully for any typographical or grammatical errors.
- The Print Request Form must be filled out completely. Any deletion of information may result in a delay of processing the request.
Reproduction of copyrighted materials, such as textbook materials, tests, or other materials furnished free of charge or sold by publishers is not authorized and should not be requested. Items such as
these will be returned to the originator without action unless prior approval for their reproduction has been obtained from the publisher. The institution reserves the right to refuse a copy order, if in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law. For further information and guidelines as to reproduction of copyrighted items, see Appendix III-14 through III-16.
- All projects need a complete request ticket filled out before we can proceed.
- All projects that are designed or typeset by the print shop will need a signed proof returned to us before we proceed.
- Pick up and delivery of finished materials less than one box is handled by the interoffice mail service unless specified on print request ticket to be held for pick up. Larger quantities are picked up through work orders by Plant Operations.
It is the purpose of the print shop to aid any and all faculty and staff members with regards to their printing and duplicating needs. If special requirements are needed to do this, we will make every effort to accomplish the end result. However, printing is an exact science and there are some things that we may be unable to fulfill with our equipment and personnel. Please review and communicate your needs before starting a non-traditional project.
