How it Works

Step One

Start by filling out a design brief, explaining the details of your project. Articulating your vision helps us match you with the right designer for your project. If you have more questions before we assign your project to one of our designers, please feel free to email us at design@princeton.edu .

Step Two
You will receive confirmation of your request by email, and we will share the brief with our whole body of designers. We then select the best designer from those who express interest in the project to pair you with. This matching process usually takes 1-3 days.

Step Three
You will receive an email with the contact information of the designer and a date when you can expect an initial proof. For small projects like posters, this may take 5-7 days. We do take rush jobs, so clarify in your brief what your deadline is and we will do what we can. View our rush rates below.

Step Four
Following the initial proof, our designer will work with you to revise the design until it’s exactly where you want it. Upon delivery of the final design(s), you will be sent an invoice and options for printing with our partner the Digital Print Center, if applicable.


Rates

As each individual project varies, actual costs will inevitably vary slightly. Formal quotes are presented for client approval upon receipt of project information. Rates are billed to the nearest half hour. Prices do not include printing or postering. 

The SDA prints with the Digital Print Center. Please contact them for print rates as they are billed separately. Please allow them at least two days to physically proof and print your project.
