Printing and Design makes every effort to keep near the cutting edge of rapidly advancing technology in the graphics industry. We are a digital workflow environment for a higher quality output directly from digital files. We are able to accept files from both Macintosh and Windows platforms but do prefer pdf files. Our new color copiers have the latest five-color technology including the ability to print clear and white. We will have more new services coming in the future.

All printing will still go through Printing and Design and the campus print manager Robin Spindler per state regulations.
The purchase of printing in Wisconsin has traditionally been handled differently than the purchase of other commodities. The Department of Administration has delegated the power to purchase print and, almost without exception, state agencies have chosen to maintain the separation between general purchasing and print purchasing. This allows the assignment of an Agency Printing Manager, a person with printing expertise who understands the entire printing process and the myriad of manufacturing options available to achieve exactly what the customer wants. The Agency Printing Buyer for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is Robin Spindler.
To assist the assigned Agency Printing Managers, the DOA’s Bureau of Procurement has developed a series of contracts for the purchase of virtually any type of printing that might be required by state agencies. Chapter 35 of the Wisconsin Statutes defines printing and established the classes of printing and contracts that the Department of Administration bids. The prices associated with these contracts are excellent, and if a printing order meets all of the specifications that are covered by a state contract, the Agency Printing Manager will use that contract to purchase the printing. If the printing requested does not fit a state contract, competitive bidding is required by Chapter 35 of the Wisconsin Statutes. The Agency Printing Manager will request three bids, and the printer that submits the lowest bid that fulfills the printing specifications will be awarded the job.
Chapter 35 of the Wisconsin Statutes exempts printing funded by student segregated fees from the statutes requiring the use of a state printing contract. These accounts may choose to take advantage of a state printing contract, or — using the services of the Agency Printing Manager — they may choose to request bids from three printers in the private sector.
Printing orders that fit the state printing contracts or are executed through the competitive-bid process are subject to a purchase order fee from Printing and Design.
