Please provide as much lead time as possible (4-6 weeks). Because design projects range in size, text, purpose, and complexity, the time for design and printing varies significantly. The creative services team manages multiple projects at any given time. At the beginning of each fiscal year, please communicate with PR/Marketing which design projects have been budgeted for your department and a proposed timeline for each.


Complete the Project Request form. A designer will review and respond to you within 2-3 days to confirm the project and establish the timeline.

Provide all needed content to the designer ASAP. The designer will ensure the project meets Milligan’s style guidelines and your purpose.

Review design draft and provide feedback in a timely fashion in order to stay on timeline. Delays in providing content or feedback will require adjustments to the timeline and your original requested deadline.

Review cost estimates for the project that the designer provides you. The designer will be the point of contact with the vendor.

☑ Proof and give final approval. The designer will seek appropriate approvals from department heads. You’ll need to identify others needing input. The designer will then prepare final files and send to the vendor.

☑ Ensure prompt payment. The designer will send you vendor invoices. Please approve and submit to the Business Office for prompt payment.
