What we do

  • Advise on how your print materials should coordinate with your website and social media

Creative process

  • Advise on MIT brand standards


  • Recommend appropriate printers
  • Review print specifications to ensure accurate bids

Print resources

Whether you’re developing an event poster, department overview brochure, or conference program, consider the following best practices when starting a print project.

Things to consider

  • Define your audience and the messages you would like to convey.
  • Consider how your print project integrates with your department’s website, social media, and other communications collateral.
  • Determine who will design and write the piece. Will you need to hire creative vendors?
  • Create a schedule that includes ample time for reviews by key stakeholders, as well as time for printing. Shorter print runs can usually be printed digitally, which typically has a quicker turnaround time. Higher quantities of more complex projects may need to be printed offset, which can take longer.
