Together, we can be sure our brand is strong and recognizable.

Southeast's multi-vendor contract for procurement of printing and copying services is divided into three options and covers a variety of services. Contracted vendors must be used when University funds are spent for printing and other covered services, regardless of cost. (Contact the Department of Purchasing before making a purchase of $25,000 or more.) If the University's contracted vendors are unable to meet the specifications of a particular job, approval to use an alternate vendor should be requested prior to the purchase by contacting publications@semo.edu or jkubik@semo.edu.

Option 1: Printing Services

Currently there are six pre-certified vendors for work covered under option 1. For assistance in selecting the vendor that is the "right fit" for your publication, contact Publication Services at publications@semo.edu or (573) 651-2509. Option 1 printing MUST be produced by one of the six contracted vendors.

A purchase requisition must be submitted for all projects covered under option 1. Our vendors are flexible with this requirement. You may enter a purchase requisition after your department receives the invoice for printed work.

Common Issues for University Printing

University Name and Logo

The University's official name is "Southeast Missouri State University." When used in this manner, it must be spelled out with no abbreviations. Acceptable variations and conditions of use include "Southeast," "Southeast Missouri" and "Southeast Missouri State" in text reference in printed matter after the complete name has been established. These variations must never be used alone.

Other than in text reference, the name, "Southeast Missouri State University," as it appears in the official logo, should appear prominently (e.g., on the front cover). When referring to the University, the "U" should be capitalized.

The official Logo is the primary component of the Southeast Missouri State University graphics identity system. It consists of three elements -- the dome, the Southeast Missouri State University name, and the year it was founded. It must be printed in its entirety, without modifications, and should appear on all University materials, which include, but are not limited to, publications, advertisements, websites, vehicles, and clothing. Use the primary configuration unless space or layout concerns require one of the alternate configurations. To download the logo, go to semo.edu/logos.
