04 Jan UH Systems News recommended MaPS as the digital printing provider on campus
Stationery and business card procedure changes
UH stationery (letterheads, memos, envelopes) and business cards will no longer be provided through the UH Creative Services office. University departments, offices and programs in need of stationery and business cards are advised to contact the Hawaiʻi Correctional Industries print shop directly.
Hawaiʻi Correctional Industries print services
While use of Hawaiʻi Correctional Industries is not mandated, it is the recommended vendor. HCI is the only non-university printer with the official design templates and will follow the UH Graphics Standards.
In addition, HCI will provide samples to Creative Services, which will continue to monitor operations for quality assurance.
To order stationery or business cards—
- Review the revised procedures and price list (PDF).
- Include email, phone and fax numbers of requisitioner on the purchase order.
- Contact Justin Ouchi with questions or to obtain price estimates; phone (808) 485-5163, fax (808) 485-3581 or email email@example.com.
In general, digital printing, which is of lesser quality than offset printing, should be avoided. However, digital printing may be an option when business cards are needed in small quantities or more quickly than the time required for offset printing.
The Curriculum Research and Development Group’s Marketing and Publication Services operates a digital printshop on the Mānoa campus and provides services systemwide. Contact MaPS for pricing information.
Electronic stationery files
Because desktop printing of letterhead is of lesser quality than offset printing, use should be limited to internal communications. Electronic letterheads must comply with the official design templates in the UH Graphics Standards.
To obtain an electronic letterhead file, send a requesting memo signed by the respective dean, director or chair with a sample of existing print letterhead (or typed letterhead information) to Bachman Annex 2. Include the email address which will receive the electronic file and allow two weeks from receipt of memo and information.
