Printing with Student Publications

 

Printing Process:

 

Make sure you have a ream of unopen Hammermill Premium Multipurpose 24-pound paper (see below). We cannot start the print request without paper provided by your RSO. Unfortunately, we cannot accept other forms of paper as they cause the printer to jam. For most print jobs, we offer same day printing.  Finished print jobs will be located on the pick-up tray to the right of the elevators. If we are backed up, it is a large print job, or if it is Friday after 3pm you may experience a longer than normal wait time. We do not print on: weekends, finals week, holidays. 

There are two options to printing with us: 
  1. Send us an email inquiry to fsustudentpublications@gmail.com with the pdf image of what you would like printed. Please be sure to review the design requirements below to ensure that your flyer/handbill follows the SGA print policy. In the email, you must specify # of prints and the format i.e. 20 flyers, 10 handbills etc. We CANNOT start the print job until you have dropped the paper off at the office. 
  2. Stop by the office during the following times for in-person print job requests: 

Mondays: 12pm - 4:30pm
Tuesdays: 1pm - 4:30pm
Wednesdays: 11am - 4:30pm
Thursdays: 1pm - 5:30pm
Fridays: 11am - 4:30pm

Who can print? 

Registered Student Organizations may print 500 sheets with Student Publications each semester. We cannot serve organizations who did not re-recognize, a process that requires organizations to renew their status as an RSO. If you are wondering if an organization has been re-recognized, you can search them up here: nolecentral.dsa.fsu.edu/organizations.

 

Student Publications does cannot directly support individual fraternities and sororities that are primarily social, because they do not receive direct support from SGA. However, we CAN serve the umbrella organizations (aka Greek Councils). These include: Pan-Hellenic Council (Panhellenic), Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Panhellenic Council (NPHC) and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC).
