Op12.03-3 Our Process

Creative services generates the text, often referred to as copy, for a number of regular university publications. However, other projects are required to have the copy submitted on CD or via email in text format. The copy may be edited to fit a consistent style used in other university publications.

As the client, you will be involved in the proofing process from start to finish. You will proof and approve the project at several stages during the process, and you will give the final approval before the project is delivered to the printer. Although creative services also proofs the material, the responsibility of making sure everything is accurate rests with the client.

After the project has been approved, creative services will find a suitable printer, either Missouri State printing and postal services or an outside printing establishment, and will handle the required bidding process. The office will monitor the progress of the project while it is being printed. If the publication was printed on-campus, a representative from creative services will notify the client of the project's completion. The publication will be available to be picked up at printing and postal services, located at 405 N. Jefferson Ave., or at Copy This, located in Plaster Student Union 210.

Publications printed off-campus will be delivered to the Missouri State receiving dock, unless otherwise noted. Delivery to the client will be coordinated by the receiving dock and the office of publications.
