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 will be free of charge to the campus community provided that projects follow the production plan established at the time of job initiation. Projects that deviate from the production plan will incur a cost of $100 for each additional proof above the project plan and have their delivery schedules renegotiated. Your area will be responsible for contracted costs such as printing, mailing, and freelance design 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 an email to tcnjpublications@tcnj.edu that briefly describes what you are considering. We will put you in touch with the right member of the team and get you the help that you need.
