Ordering Print or Graphic Design Jobs

Please refer to the Style Manual for official Hampden-Sydney design standards, the H-SC Official Color Palette for quick reference, and the Guidelines for Generating Publicity Materials.

Lead Time: The Communications Office produces about 1000 print jobs for the College each year with a limited staff. To make sure we have enough time to devote to your project, we ask that you factor lead time into your printing plans. For small jobs that will be printed on-site, usually 2 weeks before you want the job in your hands is sufficient lead time. Jobs that will be printed off-site due to size, complexity or specialty will need longer lead times. If you have questions, contact communications@hsc.edu.

Initiating an Order: All orders must be placed through communications@hsc.edu. They will collect the information necessary to put the job on the production schedule. You will be assigned a graphic designer, with whom you will work to develop your project.

If this is an event, please be sure to make an event reservation through the EMS Calendar App.
