Approved Vendors

For departments with internal printing/promotional needs, the vendor pool offers the speed and flexibility to manage some projects on your own.

Vendor Pool

EWU MarCom has secured a pool of pre-approved vendors that departments can use as needed without going through the Purchasing Office (up to $10,000). These are trusted companies with a long history of producing quality work for the university. If there are issues, questions or concerns, the vendor will connect with you or MarCom directly before moving forward with production.

Printing Promotional Items

Items That Should Not Be Ordered Through the Vendor Pool

  • Custom, specialty or large-quantity envelopes (A-2, A-6, A-7, business-reply, remit, ticket, die-cut, security, full-color/designed)
  • 9″ x 12″ or 10″ x 13″ catalogs
  • Custom layout items
  • External event, promotional or campaign items

If you need one of these items, please fill out the standard MarCom Project Request Form.

USPS/Mail Services

  • All EWU print projects created outside MarCom and intended to be mailed through USPS must be reviewed by EWU Mail Services before any items are ordered, printed or mailed.
  • Mail Services and/or MarCom approval must be completed prior to sending any files to be printed by any vendor.

More About Mail Standards


You will be invoiced directly. Vendors in this pool generally expect payment after delivery, typically via department P-card. Please do not use POs to pay anyone in the vendor pool.

If a vendor has issues being paid on time, they have been advised to contact MarCom. If you have questions regarding this process, please contact Shelley at 509.359.6336.

Promotional Items

When ordering from either vendor, you will need to have MarCom create your artwork before submitting it to vendor. Once you have communicated with vendor and have approved product and artwork, you will pay the vendor directly with your P-card, after delivery of items.
