Vendors

Southeast's "will to do" spirit is among our greatest strengths. It's embodied in our work ethic, our easy approachability, our practical persistence, and our drive to succeed. It's the heart of our brand. It instills pride. And it's who we are.

Through consistent use of our logos, graphics, fonts, and messaging, we reflect the University's tradition and promise a dynamic future. Working together, we can be sure our brand is strong, recognizable, and effective. That's why we've selected quality vendors who are partners in achieving our goals and elevating our programs.

Southeast's multi-vendor contract for printing and copying services is divided into two 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. 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 Joann Kubik at (573) 651-2509 or publications@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 Joann Kubik at (573) 651-2509 or publications@semo.edu. Option 1 printing MUST be produced by one of the contracted vendors.

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

Option 1 covers all printing services not covered under option 2. It encompasses a wide variety of printed materials, including (but not limited to):

  • Booklets
  • Brochures
  • Folders
  • Newsletters
  • Postcards
  • Posters
  • Soft-cover books and journals
  • Other work, including single or multiple color printing
  • Specialty work (die-cutting, foil stamping, embossing)

Proofs of all jobs to be produced for the University must be presented to this office prior to printing. This is one of the ways our team works with you to ensure consistency with brand across our campus. We're here to help! For information about our brand, go to semo.edu/brand or contact Joann Kubik at (573) 651-2509 or publications@semo.edu.

Carefully review your publication for brand standards before submitting it for printing!

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.
