Print

Posters, postcards, brochures, annual reports. If it can be printed, we can write and design it. We also oversee BU’s identity standards, so you know it’ll be on brand.

The eye-catching poster you spotted from the T, the inventive annual report you sent to a colleague, the sparkling invite you received for a campus event—you connect with our printed work every day.

You’re not alone. Thousands of people at home and abroad do, too, and it could be your message they see next. The BU community can book our design professionals for any print project, from postcards and magazines to billboards and posters. Our team also includes copywriters, editors, photographers, print buyers, and proofreaders, so you won’t have to shop around—we’ll take care of it all.

As a full-service agency—our in-house print professionals work alongside interactive designers and public relations experts—we’ll ensure that your printed materials slide straight into any broader communications efforts. We’ll also work with you to develop the ideas that will be the most engaging, relevant, and effective for your audience and goals. (If you’d like us to consult with you on your overall marketing strategy, we can help with that, too.)

Whatever the project you choose to work on with us, there’s another big benefit: we manage BU’s brand and editorial guidelines, so you don’t have to wrap your head around Pantone: 186. CMYK: 0, 100, 75, 4 (design-speak for BU Red) and other details. We also maintain the University’s approved print vendor list (if you’d like our advice on working with printers for your own projects, contact our production team), and we coordinate reservations for the Warren Towers poster display cases.

For those who need something simple—business cards, envelopes, letterhead—BU has teamed up with The Artcraft Company to offer an online ordering system. The new online platform, enabled through the Terrier Marketplace, provides an easy, efficient way to order BU stationery. This is a good thing, because now all your BU shopping can be done in one place.
