NEW Job Request Procedure

 

In order to assist in scheduling, completing,
and invoicing jobs in a timely manner, we have created an online job request form. The form is now integrated with PayPal so that credit card payments can be made as well as the usual invoicing of departments/offices.

 

All job requests MUST go through this form.

 

This form provides essential information to
the graphics team and allows the student assistants access to the information through irgraphics@buffalostate.edu.

 

Please contact Kaylene Waite directly at
878-6676 or by email with any questions.

  • What types of job requests can we do for you?  Need more information?      Select the categories below...

  • Posters

    Conference Posters

    Both faculty and students attend conferences or research fairs where their work is to shared. To make the experience a little easier for you, we have many poster templates available to download. Use them as a guide and feel free to change the colors, fonts, etc.

    If time is available (and it's not April) we may be able to design the poster for you.

    We design and print anything from conference posters and event posters to building directories and schematics.  These are all printed on a satin poster paper.

    · A standard event poster size is 24x36*

    · A standard conference poster size is 30x40*

    *Other sizes are fine - this is just the most popular size.

     

    Save $$

    For many events, we are requested to create a poster to be mounted onto foamcore so that
    it will stand on an easel. We have an alternate suggestion that can save you money.

     

    Please choose the "Banner" option instead of poster.
    Choose polypropylene which has a plastic backing to
    keep from ripping. Then request a banner stand from our
    IR Equipment Loan. This will save you the cost of
    mounting the sign.

                   Every spring in April, we
                   are VERY busy printing
                   posters for events like the SRCC (Student Research and Creativity Celebration) and the Graduate Research Fair.

    During this time, we do not design anything for anyone and the job request form is limited to only certain jobs.

    For those looking for a more economical paper that can be printed larger than 11x17...look no further.

    We have two types of plain paper:

    2. 46# simple bond paper (almost twice as thick)

    This type of paper is used for building plans, portfolio pages for Interior Design students, packaging assignments for Communication Design students, and one-time throw away type banners/posters.

    Feel free to come visit our office to see the difference in the types of paper we have. We're in the basement of Bulger Communications Center (room 122).

    Example of the Communication Design packaging assignment. We can print the student's bag layout and then they construct the bag.

    Temporary banners work well on this paper. (Must be taped/tacked to wall)

  • Banners

    We offer two types of banner media:

    1. Vinyl ($4/sq. ft.)

    2. Polypropylene ($3/sq. ft.) - lighter material with a "plastic-like" backing so it won't tear.

     

    These are used mainly for indoor use. They can be used outdoor for a limited time as the inks and media are water resistant. We can also add grommets for hanging purposes.

     

    If you are looking for a one-time use cheap banner, I suggest you choose the "Plain Paper Prints" option.

    Save $$

    For many events, we are requested to create a poster to be mounted onto foamcore so that
    it will stand on an easel. We have an alternate suggestion that can save you money.

     

    Please choose the "Banner" option instead of poster.
    Choose polypropylene which has a plastic backing to
    keep from ripping. Then request a banner stand from
    our IR Equipment Loan. This will save you the cost
    of mounting the sign.

     

    Banner stands are 24" wide and can go as tall as 6ft.

    We use Oracle 631 self-adhesive vinyl film to create cut letters/shapes for surfaces. The 631 vinyl will not damage walls and removes cleanly and easily up to 2 years.

    Vinyl lettering/shapes need to be created in Adobe Illustrator. If you don't know how to create the files, contact us and we will be happy to create the files for you.

    We only charge you for the vinyl that you use. It is $5/sq. ft. (about $.035/sq. in.).  For example: A 10"x36" vinyl would cost about $12.50. A 6"x6" square would be about $1.25.

    We currently have 10 colors available. Other colors can be ordered with at least 2 weeks notice. See color chart (bottom right)
