Wait, I May Have to Pay for Printing?


With the beginning of the fall semester underway, many departments are contacting vendors about purchasing promotional items, updating department signs, or printing flyers, postcards, business cards, and other marketing materials. As a reminder, the University has print contracts that require you to use specific printers for specific types of print.

Some vendor contracts were renewed or revised over the summer and approved vendors may have changed. Before reaching out to a vendor for a quote, visit the University Marketing approved vendor webpage at semo.edu/university-marketing/resources/vendors to make sure you are still using an approved vendor for your printing, promotional and signage needs. If contracts are not followed, Purchasing may not approve University funds paying for print projects. Know before you order! Please reference the Frequently Purchased Commodities and Services List on the portal which provides information on how items should be paid for.

If you need assistance with an upcoming marketing project or choosing an appropriate vendor for a project, please reach out to your University project manager or email brand@semo.eduand we’d be happy to assist you.
