Vendors

When it’s time to get our brand out there—to engage audiences of students, parents, faculty, staff, neighbors, donors, the region, and the rest of the world—we work with partners who offer high quality services and expertise.

We've selected vendors who are partners in achieving our goals and elevating our programs. Working together, we can be sure our brand is strong, recognizable, and effective. Contact us to see how University Marketing and our partners in printing and copying, signage and graphics, and promotional items can help with your projects, programs, and events.

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 on 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 University Marketing at (573) 651-2459 or brand@semo.edu.

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.

Athletic Logos

The athletics graphic standards are available online.
