Because of our partnerships and talented staff, we can provide design, marketing, advertising, and promotional services in addition to our products listed thus far.

If we need to spend more than 10 minutes opening or altering your files to meet our production requirements, a design fee will be applied. In addition to design charges, some products also require labor charges to meet your needs. Ask our friendly staff for a quote.

Turnaround Time
We ask that you allow 2 workdays for most orders that are ready to print. We do our best to accomodate for quick timelines when possible, but please allow time for unexpected troubles with computers and workload considerations.

If your order needs design, layout, proofing, etc., please allow for additional time. For more complex orders involving creative or vendor assistance, ask for a time estimate when quoting order.

Payment Options
We accept department charges (NDSU Depts. and Orgs only), Bison Bucks, Cash, Check, Credit Card. If paying with Department Charge, please have the appropriate department and fund numbers available when placing your order.

Helpful Tips
Provide a .pdf of your file as well as the original format
Create a copy of your original file with the fonts turned to “outlines” when available (Adobe). If not available, include the font  suitcase with your file.
Include a copy of all images used in your file, For best results, design your file with high-resolution images (at least 300 dpi). Design with the images to the actual printed size. Failiure to do so can result in pixelated images.
We accept files from USB drive, external hardrive, or by email to
