Publications Services

NDSU Publications Services protects, projects and enhances the image of the university to potential students, current students and other supporters through high-quality materials.

Our efforts are prioritized using the following considerations:

  • audience importance to the university
  • scope / mission
  • time frame

How to use Publications Services

Things to know:

  • Who you're trying to reach — prospective students, potential donors, campus and community, etc.
  • What you want them to know or do as a result — choose to attend NDSU, support their NDSU experience, attend an event, etc.
  • When the communication is needed
  • How many you need, if printing
  • Budget (there are no fees for our services, but campus clients are responsible for their own printing costs)

Provide written copy if available. The information should already be proofread by you and approved by any others necessary, to help avoid multiple rounds of copy editing after the design has been established. Content provided to our office will be edited per Associated Press style. If you would like assistance with writing, please let us know.

Time frame for project requests is four to six weeks for writing, design, production and printing. Bigger projects take longer, and advance notice is important to balance requests across campus and departmental workflows. Requests that do not follow the suggested time frame may be unable to be accommodated.

You will be asked to give Publications Services creative independence with design, per NDSU branding standards, as we accommodate your request. You will be asked to sign off on the design before it goes to the printer.

For projects costing more than $10,000, a purchase requisition must be submitted to Purchasing.
