Instructions for university printing

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019

As the university prepares to transition its printing needs to an outside source, we have partnered with Allegra Printing in Newberg. They have provided instructions for submitting print jobs; please read carefully.

  • Submit all files and print requests to Shoshannah Smith at smiths@allegranewberg.com.
  • PDF files are required. For graphic posters, we prefer 1-up with .125” bleeds and crop marks. If you’re sending booklets with spreads, please be certain they are in printer spreads, not reader spreads, and have numbered pages.
  • Booklets can be submitted as 1-up single sheets in order and we will make them into booklets.
  • Standard short-run pieces take three to five business days; however, we can at times do next-day return. If you know a project is coming up and call ahead, we can put it on our schedule. We cannot do next-day return on wide format pieces.
  • Please call 503-538-7345 with any questions. Quotes need to be done through email, so if you call in a quote, please leave email contact information.

If you have any further questions, you are welcome to contact Richard Silver at rsilver@georgefox.edu.
