Design

Please note the following process timeframe depends on the scope of the project request and our current project load. Our project manager will personally work with you on a timeline for your job once all content is submitted.

These are generally the steps a project will follow:

  •  Your job form is submitted and your project text is approved.
  •  A graphic designer is assigned to work with you on your project to produce an effective product.
  • When the designer has a proof ready, you will be emailed by our project management system, SmartSheet, and asked to download a PDF that you can mark up with edits (if any).
  • Email your designer with your approval or the PDF with any edits.
  • When you have emailed your designer final approval on your project, it will be sent to the appropriate vendor for completion.

Any changes made after the project is in production may incur additional charges from print vendors.

Printing

If requested, we will work with a print vendor to get your project completed. We will request pricing and send it to you for approval. Most printing can be done on campus by Radford University Printing Services, but some projects will need to be outsourced due to quantity, size, or special effects. The printing process on campus takes between one to two weeks, depending on the size of the project; projects sent elsewhere could possibly take longer. If you need printed stationary please visit www.radford.edu/printing to learn more.
