The Office of Communications, Marketing, and Brand Management provides high-quality design and supervision of printing for a wide range of campus clients. The department’s overall mission is to protect, promote, and enhance the image of the college to various stakeholders, including current and prospective students, donors, faculty and staff, and others through excellent print and digital materials.
We work to satisfy all reasonable time frames for our campus clients, and our efforts are prioritized through the following considerations:
- alignment with TCNJ strategic priorities
- target audience
- objectives/call to action of the materials
- time frame
How do I get started?
The very first step in starting your project is to have a finalized manuscript (editorial copy) that has been proofread and approved by all stakeholders in your area. Work will not begin on your project without finalized manuscript submission.
Before submitting a project request, you will also need to know your budget information and project deadline.
How much does it cost?
In-house design and consultation services are free to the campus community. You will be responsible only for contracted costs such as printing, mailing, and freelance services, which you will approve in advance.
Do I have to have my own photos and/or artwork?
No. If you do not have photos and artwork needed for your project, we will help you identify, contract,
or purchase what you need.
What resources are available as I prepare my materials?
TCNJ’s Graphic Standards and Editorial Style Guide are available at brand.tcnj.edu
What do I do if I don’t really know what I need or don’t have any materials ready?
Send us an email that briefly describes what you are considering, and we will put you in touch with the right member of the team to get you the help that you need.
