    Reminder: Setting and meeting deadlines for major projects will be critical to this process. Photography/Videography and major print projects such as parent/student/discipline handbook revisions, study guides, or fliers and posters with specific distribution schedules will need to be scheduled appropriately.

    To Place a Print Order: The School District of University City contracts printing services to that are beyond our in-house capabilities. While the communications team can provide printing/copying services on a small scale, most larger jobs are outsourced. The move to contracted services helps with efficiency and result in cost savings to the District.

    ALL print requests MUST have our current Print Shop Order Form (PSOF). (Click here for download of the 1-page PDF with typewriter enabled - updated 011917) Print requests MUST HAVE cost center number and an approval signature by the cost center administrator - building leader/department director or it WILL BE RETURNED. Print requests with attached PDF and PSOF are to be emailed to communications@ucityschools.org. (Click here for instructions regarding PDF and Typewriter Tool.)

    If you cannot provide an electronic original in PDF format, please send your high-quality, printed project with a completed PSOF to the Communications Office, c/o McNair Administration Building.

    For questions regarding printing/copying services, costs and turn-around times, contact Curtis Conyears, communications specialist, at communications@ucityschools.org.
