We offer a wide-selection of printing products:
Booklets and Reports
Booklets and reports are usually multiple-page documents that are folded in half and saddle-stitched (stapled in the fold). In addition to saddle-stitching, we offer comb binding, coil binding, wire binding and tape binding.
Books and Manuals
In addition to the many finishing options listed for booklets and reports, we offer perfect binding with wraparound covers or three-hole drilling and insertion into binders for books and manuals. We also work with vendors who provide high-quality hardcover bindings.
A brochure is a simple, effective way to promote a program, project, or event on campus. We can assist campus customers with choosing a cost-effective design that complies with Illinois Identity Standards.
Flyers and Handouts
We can print your flyers and handouts in black-only or full-color on a wide variety of paper stocks and sizes.
Forms and Carbonless Forms
Since the academic world is not yet paperless, university departments still need some paper forms. These can be printed on white or colored stock, as well as on 2, 3, or 4-part carbonless stock.
Most newsletters are printed on multiple sheets of paper that are folded and stapled to keep them in order during delivery.
Postcard mailings are a great way to share information about events and deadlines. Consulting with us about the USPS postcard regulations allows customers to receive postal discounts and the best prices.
Posters and Banners

Customizing your documents can improve response rates and recognition for your organization, program, school, college or group.

DVDs are created either as a stand-alone medium for documents or to supplement a course packet, manual or other printed pieces.
