Graphic Work Order Form
Please download the PDF version and complete all the necessary fields. A hardcopy version of the file is still required for reference.
Online order form for Business Cards
Please submit it online.
Using a digital original will produce copies of ideal quality since they will not be second or third generation copies. We can accept files in Macintosh - Quark Xpress, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel. And in PC - Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Publisher. PDF files are ideal.
Jobs may be submitted by attaching electronic files to an email message directed to us or firstname.lastname@example.org. A hardcopy version of the file is still required for reference. In some instances, where excessively large files are involved, the preferred method is via a flash drive.

This machine is capable of 3-hole drilling up to 500 sheets at a time.
This machine is capable of folding Z-fold, letter-fold, bi-fold and tri-fold.

Estimates & Billing
We provide services through an internal charge-back system for payment.
The Print Shop is a self-supporting unit and charges a fee for most services. These charges cover the equipment and operation of the graphics unit and are very competitive with the alternatives. Unlike outside printers that require profit to stay in business, the Print Shop charges for operation cost and materials only. There are no charges for the editing, cost estimating, graphic art production or delivery services provided by the Print Shop. The Print Shop only bills for supplies used to complete the project.
Billing prior to Workday implementation
All departments needing printing services must have sufficient funds in their internal printing account (GL-code 62002) before any services can be provided. Only upon request, will the print shop email a job estimate based on the submitted work order form specifications. In this instance, billing will occur upon receiving a written okay to print (typically in the form of an email), based on the given estimate when quotes are not specifically requested. Graphic Communications will enter a disbursement request in PantherNet and monies will be immediately encumbered upon receiving the graphic communications work order form.
The print shop is not responsible for proof reading your copy. Please review your copy carefully. It could save you money! You will be charged additional fees for reruns.
All printing for public distribution must first be approved by College Relations & Marketing (CRM).
Turnaround times will vary. Depending on the complexity of the submitted project, this can be quite variable. If CRM or the Print Shop is responsible for editing the project, creating the design and/or preparing the electronic art files, time must be allowed for these tasks as well as the actual printing. In addition, time must be allowed for the review, proofing and revisions from all involved participants. There may also be other factors to consider such as the time necessary for special paper orders. When planning your project, please allow time. Waiting until late in the process greatly increases the possibility that the project cannot be produced as intended or on time.
To give an extremely rough estimate on projects of average complexity, you should allow a minimum of 5-10 working days for art, editing, and electronic production, and 5-10 working days for printing and delivery. It is always better to provide more time than necessary in order to accommodate the unexpected such as a digital copier breakdown. It is a requirement that print jobs be scheduled at least 5 business days in advance. A lead time of 10 working days is required at the beginning/ending of the semester and around holidays.
Graphic Identity Standards
The visual identity and graphic standards are intended to represent Palm Beach State College to internal and external audiences. Key components of the identity include the logo, typeface and color palette. These are elements of integrated marketing and advertising which enable all units of the college to be presented in a positive and unified image in all its locations and to all audiences.
Official logo of Palm Beach State College
The Palm Beach State College logo should appear prominently on all documents representing the college. The logo must be reproduced consistently & uniformly. Please use all spot and process color designations. The logo is to be reproduced from an authorized version, available either online or from College Relations & Marketing. This is to insure that the typeface and proportions remain consistent. The logo may not be redrawn, re-proportioned, stretched, turned on angle or modified in any way. It is not acceptable to alter the color. Improper use of the logo damages its ability to clearly and consistently represent the college.
"Your Pathway to Success." is the slogan for Palm Beach State College.
Always use the logo colors at full strength. The logo is in PMS 561 green and PMS 131 gold along with a full color crest image. The logo is available in single color options.
For stationery, the College is using both Friz Quadratta and Gill Sans

Artwork: An image or graphic device used to enhance or illustrate a publication. It may also be the actual hardcopy from which printed or copied jobs are produced.
Binding or Bindery: Processes using glue, wire staples, thread or mechanical clasps to hold pages together.
Bleed: Extension(1/8th) of image areas printed beyond the trim size of a sheet or page. This allows the image to spill off the edge of the page.
Coated stock: Paper that has a chemical finish applied after sheet-formation. The finish may be glossy or matte.
Cover stock: A heavy stock made for the covers of books or brochures, folders, pamphlets.
NCR: No-Carbon-Required (Receipt paper). Standard sequence of carbonless paper is 2-part = white/canary; 3-part = white/canary/pink; 4-part = white/canary/pink/gold.
Offset: The method of traditional printing where ink is applied to paper by first transferring the ink from a printing plate to a set of rollers and then from the rollers onto paper. This indirect or offset method is still the most common type of printing press.
Trim size: The final size of a printed piece. The untrimmed size may be larger due to bleed.
Uncoated stock: Paper without any special chemical finish or coating. The most common type of paper used in printing and copying.

The Print Shop stocks paper in a wide variety of weights, textures and colors. Receipt paper for multi-part carbonless forms is available (2, 3 and 4-part). Crack-and-peel labels are also available. For an accurate preview of these or any of our other papers, stop by or call to have samples sent via interoffice mail.
